Canal du Midi Cruise from Trebes to Sallèles d’Aude (7 Days)

Originally built to sail the diverse European canals and rivers, the Enchanté offers an intimate cruise in these waterways, combined with luxury and comfort. A recent refurbishment has allowed Enchanté to raise the cruising standard with her 4 stylish en-suite twin or double suites accommodating up to 8 passengers, each with superbly appointed bathrooms, incorporating a shower and lavish bath products. The barge is tastefully furnished in exotic hardwoods, creating a bright and airy atmosphere. The vessel's facilities include internet connection on board and a guest computer, CD/iPod sound system and air conditioning throughout.



Treat yourself to a comfortable and leisurely cruise on board the stylish Enchanté. Built in 1958 as a trading barge in Belgium under the supervision of Parisian architect Philippe Nineuil, it has been completely transformed into a state of the art floating hotel. The Enchanté was originally built to navigate Europe’s waterways and canals and now cruises specifically on the Canal du Midi. As the only double-decker hotel barge on the Canal du Midi, the Enchanté provides exceptionally spacious accommodation.

The Enchanté has been decorated in a contemporary style and has a light and airy interior. The modern, spacious salon, tastefully furnished in exotic hardwoods, is an excellent place to relax, read a good book or enjoy a cocktail from the well stocked bar. The barge is fitted with large picture windows which offer magnificent views of the passing scenery. Another great place to relax and take in the fragrant Mediterranean air is on the upper sun deck. It features a gorgeous spa pool, lounge chairs and is the best place to savour a glass of champagne while admiring the sunset on a warm evening. At the front of the deck you will also find eight bikes that you can use at any point during the cruise.

The Enchanté’s unique, two story layout offers room for large cabins and additional facilities. The four large suites are elegantly decorated with neutral tones, red velvet floors and mahogany furniture. The luxurious cabins offer modern facilities such as a television, internet connection, CD and IPod sound systems and air conditioning. There is also a media room with a guest computer.

As well as providing comfort and wellbeing, a cruise on board the Enchanté is a journey of culinary discovery. On board the Enchanté, where all meals prepared by the Master Chef are included, you will be served outstanding gourmet food and fine wine. The cuisine is a delicious combination of Provencal and traditional flavours, always made with fresh seasonal products. Enchanté will capture all food lovers with its demonstration galley. Watch the Chef carefully preparing your meal before you settle in the open-plan dining room or on the sundeck to enjoy it.

The Enchanté experience would not be as brilliant without the highly professional crew’s superb hospitality. The crew members will ensure your cruise is memorable by making you feel at ease, pampered and satisfied.
