This is one of the best barges that we have inspected!
The privately owned Esperance is one of the most beautiful barges for 6 on the Midi Canal.
Aboard the Esperance, you will be charmed by the gentle tranquillity of the Canal du Midi.
This majestic waterway, classed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, offers a peaceful, romantic and timeless universe within which you will cherish every moment.
Day trips allow you to discover the beauty of the wider surrounding area.
A traditional exterior hides an elegant, modern interior with sleek lines, designed to ensure a relaxed cruise.
As you step aboard, you will be impressed by the huge sun deck with its dining area, Bimini sunshade, 6 loungers, and hot tub: simply ideal for relaxing and alfresco dining.
Below deck, the yacht-style interior is exceptionally chic.
Air-conditioned throughout, the large saloon and dining area is decorated in light-coloured tones, whilst teak furniture and white woollen carpets ensure maximum light, comfort and space.
The satellite TV/DVD, and music system with CDs and Wi-Fi (subject to reception) are all at your disposal.
You will also find 6 high-standard touring bikes on board.
The exceptionally large suites (200 sq.ft.) are beautifully decorated and have a queen-size bed (or two singles in two of the suites) and an en-suite bathroom.
All bedrooms have ample storage space, luxury linens and hairdryers.
The suites on board Esperance are the largest of any hotel barge on the Midi Canal!
Transfers and excursions will be in the privately owned Mercedes Benz air-conditioned minivan.
By choosing to travel on the Esperance, you will experience the character of the region, its heritage and its cultural diversity.
You will also be in for some wonderful surprises along the way, courtesy of Mathias!
