Owners Finnegan and Emily bring their extensive experience in hospitality and piloting from their years on luxury barges, to make your week cruising on Saraphina the perfect holiday.

Explore the wonders of the Languedoc-Roussillon and make your holiday one to remember with a luxurious cruise aboard Barge Saraphina!

Saraphina is a Dutch barge built in 1924 and converted in 2007. Launched as a floating hotel, Saraphina is a charming, old fashioned boat with a contemporary, bright and welcoming interior. During a stay on-board, you'll not only enjoy full hotel services and a personal service from owners and hosts Finnegan and Emily but the opportunity to wine, dine and relax whilst taking in some of the most beautiful and historic places along the Canal du Midi.

Saraphina has 2 spacious cabins, 17 and 13 square metres. The aft cabin, which is designed for a couple has many original features giving it a traditional boaty feel. The front cabin is more contemporary modern with queen size or twin beds. Both cabins have en-suite bathrooms, bath towels, bath robes, hairdryers and complimentary toiletries.

To ensure that you make the most of your stay on-board, the days are split between exploring the surrounding area and cruising. While cruising, you are free to unwind as you wish: watch the lovely landscape float by from the deck, relax in the lounge with its views of the passing canal and its inhabitants or walk, jog and cycle along the tow path. Should you wish, you can even try your hand at steering the barge from the wheelhouse!

Following a delicious breakfast, your personal tour guide will pick you up to explore the local area and to enjoy lunch in a local restaurant. All itineraries can be tailored to accommodate specific sites of interest – such as wineries and museums – and include visits to: the historic streets of Pezenas and the Cistercian Abbey of Fontroide; the towns of Beziers and Narbonne; the medieval Cathar village of Minerve and the city of Carcassonne.

The barge can be rented by groups or families of four, though can also be chartered on an exclusive basis for romantic escapes and honeymoons. Both 3-night and 6-night cruises are available, with the 3-night stay ideal for those combining the cruise with a holiday elsewhere, such as Barcelona only 3 hours away. All cruises also include transfers to and from hotels, the train station or airport.
