A weekend or two-week cruise, with family or friends, from Carnon

Put togeth­er the water­way cruise of your dreams, depart­ing from our base in Carnon. Choose your house­boat from our wide range and then decide upon the expe­ri­ences you wish to include. We’ll train you on han­dling your licence-free boat so you can head off on the Canal du Rhône à Sète or the emblem­at­ic Canal du Midi with total peace of mind. The only thing you’ll need to wor­ry about is hav­ing fun ! Wel­come to the heart of the Camar­gue and its excep­tion­al land­scapes. From Carnon, you can head towards Aigues Mortes, where you’ll be able to moor up and enjoy the wealth of attrac­tions the town has to offer. There are some spec­tac­u­lar for­ti­fi­ca­tions here, and you’re sure to be amazed by Con­stance and Car­bon­nière Tow­ers. Take the time to cross these ram­parts and stroll in the nar­row streets of this for­ti­fied city. Notable build­ings to admire include the Péni­tents Blancs and Péni­tents Gris Chapels.

An invitation to relax and while the days away between the Camargue and the deep blue sea

Make sure you nav­i­gate as far as the com­mune of Grau du Roi. Here you can enjoy the sea and the beach, whether for a few hours or a few days. A last look at the Old Light­house of Grau du Roi and you can opt to set off on the Canal du Midi, which will take you to Sète and to Thau Lagoon. Every stop will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to dis­cov­er the tra­di­tions and gas­tro­nom­ic spe­cial­i­ties of this region. From tielle sétoise (squid and toma­to pie) to seafood plat­ters, you’ll be able to sam­ple region­al delights in one of the many restau­rants along your route or take them back to your boat for a typ­i­cal local feast to enjoy togeth­er. Your whole crew will gath­er around you as you expe­ri­ence going through the locks and, if you’re trav­el­ling past Agde, you’ll be amazed by the round shape of this ver­i­ta­ble work of art.
