Toulouse and Carcassonne boat hire in a few words…

Our base at Bram is in an ideal spot to hire a boat on the Canal du Midi, 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.

The
highlights of Bram

  • Proximity of famous vineyards of Corbières, Fitou and Minervois
  • Brand new departure base
  • Ideal spot to explore the Canal du Midi, probably the most renowned waterway in Europe
