Description for B&B:

Mirage stands out among the barges that sail the Canal du Midi due to its exceptional spaciousness. The central grand saloon fills with an abundance of natural light and fresh air thanks to the large portholes lining both sides of the barge. Immerse yourself in relaxation as you indulge in a cocktail or a glass of wine from the fully stocked bar, which boasts a unique decor reminiscent of a sophisticated lounge from the 1940s, evoking the spirit of aviators.

The open galley allows you to observe the preparation of your meals while picking up valuable tips from your personal onboard chef. Delight in dining on the deck, surrounded by the serene and picturesque surroundings, or in case of unfavorable weather, the interior dining area offers a convivial atmosphere to savor cuisine made from the freshest locally sourced ingredients.

Each day, a portion of your time is dedicated to cruising along the canal, navigating locks, and admiring the breathtaking countryside from the well-appointed teak deck. To enhance your state of tranquility, a heated spa awaits your indulgence, providing the perfect incentive to let go of your worries and find your inner peace. Additionally, you will join your English-speaking tour guide for daily excursions in the comfort of an air-conditioned van. The area offers a multitude of captivating attractions to explore, such as charming villages, wineries, covered markets, and historic sites.

Mirage itself is an authentic 1950s era French péniche, thoughtfully transformed into an elegant floating boutique hotel by its owners, Pascal and Mimi Chauvin. As a retired French Air Force jet pilot with 21 years of experience, Pascal utilizes his extensive skills to offer a truly unique excursion opportunity. Passengers have the extraordinary opportunity to embark on a 35-minute flight aboard the classic WWI biplane, the Comet, and experience the breathtaking beauty of the Languedoc countryside from the air.
