The Canal du Midi provides relaxation whether you are renting a boat, on a hotel barge, walking or cycling on the tow path, or just lazying and picnicking - under a tree - that tree to the left - with a bottle of Minervois red, French bread, locally made cheese. Are you snoozing?

The boats, the locks are easy to understand, and soon you are under way - you can choose where to moor, to have dinner on board or at a select restaurant for the night. And then the morning is full of the delights of nature, bird song, and the big blue sky.

Take a side trip down the Canal de la Robine, follow the ship steps of Roman sea going vessels that took amphoras from Salleles d'Aude (visit the potter museum) to all over the Roman empire. Follow the canal through pretty Narbonne, with its lively market, festivals, cathedral, across the etang to almost the Mediterranean, where you can bathe in big beautiful blue
