Absolutely outstanding in every respect. This was our first experience on a hotel barge, and we could not have been more pleased. Deluxe 2 cabin hotel barge run by Belmond. Cabins are spacious with luxury amenities, great beds, large closets, and generous washrooms. The barge is always rented as a charter, meaning that you have both cabins and a great ability to tailor the meals and tours to your timing and tastes. Meals prepared to your liking and timing by superlative chef. Each meal expertly paired with local wines and cheeses (forget your diet for this week) Exceptional guide with van takes you to local attractions, tailored to your interest. On board bikes and trails along the canal provide opportunity to get some exercise along the scenic canal. Talented Captain and charming hostess round out the fantastic staff. Canal du Midi is scenic and charming, you cruise through pastoral wineries through the 17th century canal and it's historic locks. Absolutely everything is included and top quality

The ultimate in luxury
