South of France

 


The old dream of the kings of France to connect the Atlantic to the Mediterranean was realised in the XVII century by the baron Riquet. 10 000 workers participated on what was considered as the biggest work of the century. The canal du Midi was classed in 1996 as part of the world heritage by the Unesco. The Canal du Midi is in perfect
harmony with the beautiful scenery and the va riety of the differents spots. If you decide to go west, you will discover the Minervois and Lauragais region, the medieval city of Carcassonne and the tiny vineyard villages along the towpath. You cruise in the larger vineyard of the world. Here the wine, the food and the sunshine are gorgeous.
