Athos du Midi
Athos is a luxury péniche hotel – a traditional French barge whose interior has been gracefully converted into a rich and cosy floating hotel barge.
Hotel barge Athos cruises through the rustic landscapes of the Languedoc on the Canal du Midi.
The Canal du Midi is an historic landmark and a listed UNESCO world heritage site situated between Toulouse and Sète on the Southwestern corner of France. The Languedoc and the Canal du Midi speak to travellers who want to experience this sprawling French wine growing region, authentic European history and spectacular rural scenery.
Passengers cruising the Canal du Midi on hotel barge Athos spend 5 days and 6 nights navigating the vineyard covered French countryside between Argeliers and Marseillan. Along the way, Athos’ indulgent and well-versed crew guide visits to famous hilltop towns like Carcassonne and Minerve. And they take Athos passengers on a gourmet tour-de-force of Mediterranean cuisine and flavours.
