Rent a boat in Midi Lauragais

Canal du Midi, Canal latéral à la Garonne

From Négra, first stop of the “Packet Boat” linking Toulouse and Agde in the 19th century, the Canal du Midi enables you to cruise between the splendid medieval city of Carcassonne, one of the largest fortresses in Europe, and Castelnaudary, once the biggest merchant port between Toulouse and the Mediterranean in the heyday of this three centuries-old canal.

Sailing your Pénichette® to the west under the shade of great plane trees, you will arrive in Toulouse. Built in brick, it is called the “Ville Rose” (Pink City). The city has an exceptional heritage, a warm ambiance and a high gastronomic reputation. After visiting the Saint-Sernin basilica and the Capitole, you can enjoy cassoulet, foie gras, confit (preserved meats) and all the exciting dishes from the regional cuisine.

Further west, thanks to your self-drive boat, you will discover Montech, a delightful little town which was built as a walled town in the 12th century.
