Locaboat invites you to discover, or rediscover, its flagship destinations:

The South-West of France and its winning trio: nature, heritage, gastronomy.

Departing from our base in Agen, the South-West region will dazzle you.
As soon as you leave you’ll cross the striking Agen aqueduct, which carries the Canal de Garonne over the Garonne River.
In the heart of a natural setting, under the vaults of green trees, the Baïse River meanders and offers you its most beautiful landscapes.
Gascony is an historical land, the homeland of King Henry IV – don’t miss the opportunity to visit his castle in Nérac.
Finally for gourmets, the region is also famous for its gastronomy, mainly foie gras and duck dishes – delight in the region’s produce!
In the South West you don’t have to choose between nature, heritage and gastronomy, it’s all there!


The Canal du Midi: festival atmosphere under the sun

Oh the south of France! Its warm atmosphere, its singing cicadas, its games of pétanque and its famous Pastis**. Share all of it with friends!
Gliding along the Canal du Midi promises wonderful experiences, from blissful idleness to awe inspiring heritage discoveries.
Choose from our 3 departure bases and embark on your way to happiness: Négra, from where you’ll discover beautiful Toulouse, the Pink City. Bram, which opens the door onto the historic city of Carcassonne, and the delicacy of a cassoulet from Castelnaudary. Argens, is your gateway to one of the most beautiful villages in France: Somail, and to the mythical 7 locks of Fonséranes.
For lovers of nature and wide open spaces, the Etang de Thau and the Camargue wilderness are also accessible from Lattes.
