About the barge "Anjodi"

Anjodi barge cruises

Anjodi is a classic Dutch barge design, specifically rebuilt to negociate the 330 year old Canal du Midi in the south of France.
She has been completely refurbished in the tasteful tradition of African hardwoods, hand-crafted panelling and shining brass, to create a comfortable and charming ambience reminiscent of a classic yacht.

The well planned accommodation offers a choice of four air-conditioned twin/double staterooms, each with full ensuite facilities.
The shaded sun deck is unusually spacious, with a heated, sunken spa pool and comfortable loungers.
