Boat trips on the Canal du Midi

Very few businesses offer piloted cruises on the canal du midi. Boat rental has been traditionally limited to self drive hire, with all the stresses and strains involved.

La Souqueto B&B have been offering guests short cruises on the canal du midi for some time now. We have had many calls to ask for a piloted service. While we will continue to offer two hour to full day cruises,  taxi services to restaurants and Chateau Paraza and wine tasting cruises, we have completed a number of week long piloted cruises for guests. Its been a great success. Here’s a recent Tripadvisor review…

5 Star review. ‘Memorable Experience’ … ‘My wife and I experienced an amazing time with Jon & Mel. Our week stay with them has been the best we have had! Our room was beautifully furnished, the bed wonderfully comfortable and the shuttered windows opened to tree tops beyond the neighboring roofs…We included a three day canal du midi trip to Fonserannes Locks at Beziers on their ‘Gentleman’s cruiser’, Bella Mia. If you would like some slow pace in your life this is the way to do it. A purely magical experience with Jon at the healm’.

Andrew and his wife wanted to combine a week stay at La Souqueto B&B with a three full day cruise to the stunning locks at Fonserannes at Beziers.

Each day we drove the couple to where the boat had been moored headed off down stream stopping at restaurants along the way. At the end of the day, after a drink or two we picked them up and returned them to La Souqueto B&B for an evening meal and a comfortable bed.
