Clair de Lune6 berths
Canal du Midi
Luxury comfort for a unique holiday experience: a placid and perfectly paced cruise on an idyllic World Heritage site canal through the heart of France's oldest and largest wine region.
Ideal for a holiday with family or friends, each cruise is tailored to the group's taste; no two trips are ever the same. Your cruise is just for you and we will make it a unique experience.
Your cruise along this historic canal begins as you are welcomed aboard on Saturday afternoon; each day takes you to a different section of the canal until you disembark the following Friday morning, six days later.
Designed for the comfort of six passengers , the Clair de Lune is 100 ft long and 16.6 ft wide — the maximum navigable size for a craft on the Canal du Midi. Utmost of hotel barge comforts
Its original name was Aurora, and of Dutch origin like its previous owners, the barge was originally designed for carrying cocoa. Passionate about boat construction, they decided to transform the barge into a floating hotel and propose luxury inland water cruises. So since 1998, Clair de Lune has welcomed guests on board in an exceptional luxury environment to part take in fascinating and authentic cruises on the Canal du Midi.
