Head for the water

>  Gala (13 June 2012)  

A week to make the journey from Béziers to Castelnaudary. Three days to get from Trèbes to Homps. An hour to navigate the nine locks at Fonsérannes, just like in the olden days! The Canal du Midi, which runs for 230 km between the Garonne and Rhône rivers, linking the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, offers novice sailors the ultimate luxury: a wonderfully languid pace. Aboard superb barge-hotels or at the tiller of rental boats, you can float along the fifty-five aqueducts, through the sixty-four locks and the seven canal bridges of the old Royal Languedoc Canal, a listed heritage site.
