Canal de Garonne Hotel Barge Cruise

Day 1 - Montauban (France)

Guests are met in Toulouse** and transferred by private chauffeured minibus to Rosa. Following a champagne welcome, there is time for a tour of the beautiful old town of Montauban, set on the River Tarn, before returning for your first dinner on board.

Day 2 - Montech

This morning there is a short drive to an artisanal dairy farm at Ramier to experience the entire cheese making process, culminating in a delicious tasting with the chance to purchase a few slices to take home. Next, stroll around old Montauban, a charming redbrick town on the banks of the River Tarn. Following lunch on board, Rosa climbs the flight of nine locks on the beautiful branch canal skirting the Forest of Agre and moors in the heart of the little town of Montech. Dinner on board.

Day 3 - Castelsarrasin

After breakfast head into the Côtes du Frontonnais wine region in the minibus for a wine tasting at the renowned Château Bellevue la Fôret. Our introduction to the outstanding cuvée ‘Optimum’ is in the skilled hands of Diane Germain, the Boston-educated daughter of the house. Lunch back on board is followed by a guided tour of the remarkable inclined Water Plane, an amazing feat of engineering that by-passes five locks and, when back in service in the near future, will lower vessels 43 feet all in one go. In the afternoon we will cruise to Castelsarrasin, where there may be time for a game of boules before dinner on board.

Day 4 - Moissac

This morning cross the River Tarn via the aqueduct, the Pont Canal du Cacor, then descend towards Moissac through a staircase of delightful locks and moor for lunch on the River Tarn below the old watermill. Cruise downstream to St. Livrade for an optional swim or canoe and visit the UNESCO-classified 7th century Abbaye St-Pierre de Moissac with its beautifully preserved cloisters and chapel. This evening perhaps enjoy a game of boules then stroll ashore to savour regional specialties at the excellent restaurant ‘Le Florentin’, in front of the spectacular entrance portal of the abbey.

Day 5 - Pommevic

Visit Castelsarrasin’s market this morning before cruising up from the Tarn and along the brick-lined canal through Moissac. Cruise between the placidly-flowing waters of the Garonne and the foothills of the Quercy massif then moor at Pommevic. After lunch, we visit the 18th century Château de la Motte for a private guided tour by the resident Countess. At the end of the tour we are invited to take tea with her in her private apartments, as she reveals her family’s famous association with the Kings of France. See the 15th-century hillside village of Auvillar and tour the old “Bastide” town of Valence d’Agen, with its Palladian canalside public wash-house and arcaded market place. Dinner on board.

Day 6 - Boe

A leisurely morning cruise through the bucolic countryside to our final mooring at Boé. After lunch, we visit Domaine de Lapeyrade for a guided tour and private tastings of their esteemed Armagnac and Floc du Gascogne wines in delightful surroundings, before visiting the medieval town of Nérac and its castle, once home to Henry IV of France. Captain’s Farewell Dinner on board.

Day 7 - Boe

After breakfast, guests are transferred by private chauffeured minibus back to their choice of location in Toulouse**.
