Rent a boat in Midi Lauragais

Canal du Midi, Canal latéral à la Garonne

The Canal du Midi is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and allows you to appreciate the genius of its designer, Pierre-Paul Riquet, while introducing you to three centuries of history.

Our new base at BRAM is in an ideal spot, just a few kilometres from Castelnaudary, famed for its cuisine, especially cassoulet (duck confit with beans). As you cruise towards the Mediterranean, you can easily get to Carcassonne. Magnificently restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century, Carcassonne is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its 52 tall towers, Europe’s largest fortress proudly looms over the lower town. From its double circle of ramparts the view is breathtaking.

Further west, from our Négra base, the green canal, fringed with centuries-old plane trees, will take you to Toulouse. The town is known as the Pink City because of the colour of its buildings. The Garonne flows through the city, which has features of outstanding historical interest, including the Romanesque Basilica of Saint-Sernin, one of its finest treasures. The Basilica was first built in 250 AD as a home for the relics of Saint Saturninus and became one of the most important places of pilgrimage in western Europe during the middle ages. Today it is the largest surviving Romanesque church in Europe.
