Disconnect on a barge cruise

The Canal du Midi passes through the villages of Poilhes and Capestang, and not far from Cruzy and Quarante.
It leaves its mark on landscapes, villages and people. By bike, on foot or by boat, you can walk along the towpath and discover numerous engineering structures: siphon weir, aqueduct, weirs…

Riquet, of course, but also Vauban left their mark on this magnificent work. By boat, you can moor at the ports of Poilhes and Capestang.
In Capestang, you’ll find the Capitainerie office in the tourist office, where you can find out about the many port services available, including boat hire without a licence for an hour, half a day or a full day from the port of Capestang.

Your campsite near the Canal du Midi

Whether you come just to admire it, or follow it from Toulouse to Sète, the Canal du Midi is one of the most majestic itineraries to discover on foot, by bike or by boat. An unmissable symbol of the Languedoc and the Midi, it stretches for 250 kilometers and winds slowly through vineyards, hills and villages with narrow streets.

Close to the Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Languedoc, it’s a hiking paradise.

Nearly 33 km of trails, from the campsite in Saint-Chinian to the Canal du Midi, via Cessenon-sur-Orb, Cazouls lès Béziers, Maureilhan and Colombiers, have been laid out as greenways. Between Saint-Chinian and Maureilhan, the trail follows theold local railroad line. Then, between Maureilhan and the Canal du Midi, it takes low-traffic local roads.

This “voie verte” will delight cycling and hiking enthusiasts, and numerous connections are possible with the FFC mountain bike circuits of the Terroir Saint-Chinianais.

Departure from the center of Saint-Chinian, rue de l’Ancienne Voie Ferrée, near the Tourist Office.
