The Midi and Camargue cruising areas in the South of France are very popular locations for boating holidays.

The Canal du Midi is a World Heritage Site, an amazing 17th century feat of engineering. Now it gives relaxed cruising in the south of France sunshine - a perfect boating holiday for experienced or first-time cruisers - as cultural, gastronomic or leisurely as you please.

We have 7 boating bases on the Canal du Midi, giving a huge choice of routes to the West along the Canal du Midi as far as Toulouse or to the East perhaps into the Camargue.

The Camargue is famous for its pink flamingos, cowboys on white horses, black bulls, colourful festivals, ancient ports and modern beach resorts. Enjoy sunshine late in the year, and with miles of lock-free cruising the Camargue offers an easy boating holiday.


Our 4 bases in Camargue offer a range of one-way and out-and-back routes, perhaps to the Canal du Midi, through the salt-water lakes of the Camargue with opportunities to stop at sandy beaches and fishing villages.
