Why a Canal du Midi Cruise on Luxury Hotel Boat Athos should be on your bucket list.

A Canal du Midi Cruise on Athos is a South of France experience that is a once in a lifetime, must-do holiday. Here’s why:

  1. Athos makes your Canal du Midi cruise exclusive and personalised. VIP is the only class and service option.

Athos carries a maximum of 10 passengers on board in any given week and her 5 full time crew members ensure that they are given every attention and comfort.  Athos and her crew are all about making your special Canal du Midi holiday the lifetime trip to remember.  With the option of chartering the entire boat for up to 10 passengers, you can choose your own group of preferred travellers.  If you’d like to stay away from the crowds, Athos’ crew can arrange that.  

  1. It’s not JUST a luxury Canal du Midi Cruise.  

Inclusive shore excursions mean that you’ll See & Experience More on hotel barge Athos.  Because Athos’ experienced crew will look after the complicated travel questions of Where-to…? How-to…? and What’s-on-the-menu…  we make it possible for you to do far more than an independent traveller in the South of France. 

During a week onboard, Athos’ Canal du Midi cruise activities include: 
  • cruising the Canal du Midi by historical hotel barge and exploring the surrounding area.
