Self-drive cruising along the Canal du Midi

Self-Drive Cruising

Self-drive canal boating is the ideal way to discover the charm and mystery of hidden regional provinces. Cruise through peaceful countryside, past tempting vineyards and historic villages where tiny medieval churches, ancient chateaux, quaint markets and small local restaurants will offer you an endless stream of new experiences and delights. 

Laid-back isles and seaside canals provide a tranquil setting for some quiet times. Canals thread inland to intriguing cities and towns, following ancient routes and ready for you to explore at your own pace. You have the freedom to stop whenever and mostly wherever you please. Half the fun on a self-drive canal boat is stepping off your boat and cycle along the tow paths.
