The Clair de Lune is a purpose built passenger charter barge completed in 1997 in the Netherlands. She is the culmination of over 20 years experience catering for a discerning international clientèle, and was created perfectly for cruising on the delectable Canal du Midi. The large picture windows in the interior saloon and cabins ensure that you are able to ‘watch the world float by’ at all times as plenty of natural light floods in from the sunny surroundings.
Cabins are spacious and well appointed with classy furnishings, whilst bathrooms are beautifully tiled and generously proportioned. Gourmet meals are prepared with skill and imagination from fresh local produce by your professionally trained chef, whilst the wines are meticulously selected by the barge to represent the very best of the region and beyond.
Your experienced, well educated and knowledgeable barge guide will accompany you on excursions chosen to suit your group’s interests. Cruise in decadence past poppy and corn fields, lush green maize growing higher than your head, and perfect rows of vines and olive trees. Cruises are full board with exquisite gourmet food and fine wines served at every lunch and dinnertime.
