Video: Hotel Barge Athos

Athos was originally built as a commercial sand, grain & wine barge but has since been converted into the luxury vessel you see before you. Though she now carries a very different cargo, her association with wine continues as she meanders through the Languedoc-Rousillon region of France.

In her saloon there are comfortable sofas and an elegant dining area, while the five air-conditioned, twin/double-bedded staterooms each have all modern comforts including an en suite shower room. Outside, her spacious sundeck has an adjustable canopy to offer shade, comfortable hardwood deckchairs and for the more energetic, bicycles to explore the towpath.

Athos is one of the most traditional hotel barges cruising the Canal du Midi and her welcoming ambience will make your voyage through the Languedoc landscape truly memorable.
