Gascony is a peaceful region with bold colours and flavours, making for an incredibly beautiful holiday destination. With orchards and vineyards alike to visit, you’ll get a taste of the real France when you book your hotel barge in Gascony. There are many stunning locations to visit when you get off of the beaten track and instead take to the rivers and canals of Gascony.
The “Canal des Deux Mers”, comprising the Canal de Garonne and the Canal du Midi, links the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. This gives the region of L’Occitanie stunning colours and scenery, with fields of sunflowers and more to enjoy.
You’ll cruise through Gascony along the Canal du Garonne, exploring medieval fortified ‘bastides’ like Valance d’Agen, before heading to the quaint villages and farms of the region to sample local produce. Take the 1,000-foot aqueduct over the River Tarn and sail under weeping willows. It will make for an incredible journey, so book your Gascony river cruise now for the holiday of a lifetime.
