Visit the UNESCO listed Canal du Midi

A popular attraction for holidaymakers in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France and another UNESCO world heritage site, the historical Canal du Midi was built to link the Atlantic to the Mediterranean as a trade route in the 17th century.

The beautiful tree-lined canal is now used for boating holidays and has become a real attraction for nature and history lovers. You can take a boat trip on the canal from opposite the train station in Carcassonne new town.

An incredibly relaxing destination even in peak tourist season, you will find many authentic French restaurants and an abundance of wine tasting opportunities along the canal.

The Canal du Midi winds it's way through many charming villages in the area.

If you are staying in one of our holiday rental villas near the Canal du Midi, be sure to spend at least a day exploring the canal, by boat, bike or on foot.
