There is nothing more musical than a sunset

Claude Debussy

Join the Clair de Lune in 2018 for a magical cruise along the Canal du Midi, to enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets!  Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you’ll love the views.

Featuring three tastefully decorated ensuite junior cabins, a relaxing 32m² saloon with panoramic windows, cosy dining area for those candlelit dinners and a gorgeous sundeck complete with comfortable loungers, wooden dining furniture & hot-tub, the Clair de Lune is the perfect choice for your next charter.

Our watch words? Calm, rest & serenity.

Our carefully chosen range of excursions showcases the best of the South of France, including the Archbishop’s Palace at Narbonne, Pezenas, home to one of France’s most famous playwright, Moliere, and the jewel in the crown, the fortified city of Carcassonne.
We’ll also indulge in two private wine tastings including one in the Domaine de  Massamier la Mignarde.

2018 promises to be an exciting year, with several new boats and a new, idyllic destination, Canada.
With our current early booking discounts of up to 25%, it’s certainly the best time to get on board.

But, we know that price isn’t everything.
Our customer service continues to bring us 5-star ratings and our guests continue to recommend us to their friends and family.

Here at Hotels Afloat, we go the extra mile.  This season we have booked a wheelchair for a client, and also a vet’s appointment for a client bringing his dog to France for a cruise!

Our aim is always to find the perfect cruise for you, and to make the whole search and booking process as simple as possible.  With over 40 years experience, and our in-depth knowledge of France, our home, we are happy to help in anyway that we can.

This year we’ve introduced a Chat facility on our site so that you can speak with us directly if emailing is not your thing!  Of course, we’re always happy to call you if you’d prefer to speak on the phone.





We’ve also created personalized online booking forms so that you can confirm your cruise with just a few clicks.
