Canal du Midi, France – Bike and Barge
August 2019 .
Journey through the South of France via bike and barge
The Canal du Midi is best seen by a combination of barge and bike. Your gear, bike, accommodation, deck chairs, wine and kitchen float along with you – there’s no packing up each day. Sit back and watch the beautiful scenery along the Canal Du Midi, as we serenely drift along. This is a holiday where you really can, sit back and relax. Alternatively, jump off the boat for a cycle. Pedal off along the pathways beside the canals, and head into the villages. The pleasure and delight of the Canal du Midi is that we really do, get away from it all. This rural 214km journey by boat is peaceful and enchanting as it meanders through the medieval villages of the south of France. We walk, cycle, and float along, exploring villages, vineyards, enjoying local foods and produce and meeting the rural people of Southern France.
