Golf Cruise - Canal du Midi

ITINERARY*

Sunday, Day 1 Trebes

Guests are met in Narbonne** and transferred by private chauffeured minibus to Enchante. A Champagne Welcome awaits you, with the chance to meet your Captain and crew followed by dinner on board.

Monday, Day 2 Trebes to Puicheric

Fascinating morning tour of Carcassonne. Dating back to the Gallo-Roman era, this is the most complete mediaeval fortified city in existence today with its 52 watchtowers, portcullis and extraordinary repertoire of defences, which resisted the many armies that tried to storm this glorious Camelot setting. Following a lunch cruise you will head to Golf de Carcassonne. Challenging water obstacles and bunkers make this a tactical golf course for players of all levels. Dinner on board.  (18 holes, 5,800m, Par 71).

Tuesday, Day 3 Puicheric to Homps

Morning cruise under the shade of the plane trees which line the canal to Puicheric. After lunch we golf at Golf de St Thomas. This course offers various types of play: woods, hills, lakes and on some fairways a more classic approach. We continue cruising to a picturesque mooring under the trees, a perfect opportunity to try your hand at boules followed by an alfresco dinner on board. (18 holes, par 72, 6130m).

Wednesday, Day 4 Homps to Roubia

This morning we play golf at Lamalou-les-Bains Golf Course located at the foot of Mt Carooux by the River Orb, this course with its three small lakes, is flat, wooded, short, technical and most enjoyable. Enjoy lunch ashore before returning to the barge for an afternoon cruise, we transverse the canal bridge l’Epanchoir, one of the many feats of engineering invented by Pierre Riquet for the Canal du Midi, to Roubia. Dinner on board.  (9 holes, 2,600m, Par 35).

Thursday, Day 5 Roubia to Le Somail

Morning cruise through vineyards and pine trees to the charming and historical village of the Le Somail, purpose built for the Canal du Midi. Take some time to explore the old bookstore of Le Somail. Afternoon excursion to a wine tasting in the Saint Chinian, the first village of the region to receive the much envied French mark of approval for wines known as A.O.C. (Appellation d’Origine Controlée), teamed with an excursion to “Oulibo”, Occitan for olive. This cooperative olive oil press is a great opportunity to sample the famous Lucques olive. Dinner on board.

Friday, Day 6 Le Somail to Sallèles d’Aude

This morning we enjoy a round of golf at Cap d’Agde. This golf course is located in a colourful landscape created by one of the world’s most renowned architects, Ronald Fream. An outstanding and inventive course whose greens are jealously protected by bunkers that you will never forget. Afternoon cruise through the series of locks and narrow bridges of the Robine Canal, built after the Canal du Midi to link Narbonne and the Mediterranean. Cycle ahead and explore the village of Sallèles d’Aude, our final mooring. Captains Farewell Dinner on board.(18 holes, 6,301m, Par 72).

Saturday, Day 7 Sallèles d’Aude
