Luxury barge holidays for 2 or 4 people
Make lasting memories with a cruise aboard the colourful and charming Saraphina.
Explore the wonders of the Languedoc-Roussillon and discover the 350 year old masterpiece that is the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO world heritage site. We endeavour to make your holiday one to remember.
From the moment you step onboard you will have only one thing to do, RELAX and let a crew of 3 take care of your every need. We invite you to cruise with us through tiny bridges, unique oval locks, and the French countryside enveloped by vines.
Saraphina is a Dutch barge built in 1924. During her early life she was used to transport freight throughout Holland.
She has now been lovingly converted into a hotel barge, carefully and tastefully designed to ensure all guests enjoy a relaxed and comfortable stay. Saraphina is a charismatic, old fashioned boat with a contemporary, bright and welcoming interior. During a stay on-board you'll not only enjoy full hotel services and a personal service from owners and hosts Finnegan and Emily, but the opportunity to wine, dine and relax whilst taking in some of the most beautiful and historic places along the Canal du Midi.
In addition to a lovely sun deck, there are two en-suite cabins to sleep four (One cabin 183 sq ft with twin beds or queen and one cabin 140 sq ft with double bed) both of which are equipped with everything you could need. Our unique dutch bikes are just another delightful way for you to discover the Canal du Midi.
