SAINT LOUIS

Saint Louis docked

LACOURT ST PIERRE to BOE PORT


The Saint Louis was built in Holland in 1923. Some ten years ago, she was bought by her previous owners, who made a fabulous job 
of the design of the renovation, and of the work itself. They managed to retain her original pleasing lines, while converting her to carry up to six passengers in real comfort. All up-to-date conveniences were fitted, including central heating and air conditioning, and the boat has all  the features you could need for a fabulous holiday.

Saturday - Toulouse, Bordeaux or Agen train station.

Transfer to the barge to arrive around 5.00pm. Champagne reception upon arrival, then time to settle in, get to know your crew, a short safety briefing and a general talk through the itinerary for the week.

Sunday -

Tour: Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and then a beautiful drive through rich countryside to visit the Lily Gardens at Temple sur Lot that were founded in 1875 and inspired Monet. We arrive in time to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the ponds and gardens before lunch overlooking the lake.

Afterwards we return to pick up the barge for our cruise through to our wild evening mooring at La Magistere, one of the most glorious, tree lined settings along our route.

Monday -

After breakfast we explore the local village and the hill top town of Claremont Subiran and Auvillar. This town was in the past a major trading port and has a fascinating history. We see the grain exchange and learn about the mighty trading route along the river before the canal network opened up and overtook it.

Returning to the barge for lunch we then enjoy our cruise along the tree lined canal to our mooring at Pommevic.

Tuesday -

Tour: After breakfast it’s off to Valence d’Agen and its bustling weekly market. We enjoy a coffee in the local square and meander through the maze of stalls offering a staggering array of fresh local produce, fish, meats and cheeses amongst so much else!

We return to the barge for lunch and our afternoon cruise through to Moissac port and then descend onto the mighty river Tarn where we moor for the evening on the river.

Before dinner there will be time to visit to the Monastery and Cloisters at Moissac Abbey, a renowned world heritage site and if lucky enough enjoy listening to the nuns chanting at Vespers. We then return to the barge for dinner.

Wednesday -

Tour: Moissac is a busy town and guests often enjoy an hour or so to discover its delights before we cruise on the river where we stop mid-stream for lunch. A truly magnificent setting for lunch as the barge holds position overlooking a frothing river weir.

We return to the canal network after lunch and proceed with our afternoon cruise to Castelsarassin where we moor for the night.

Thursday -

Tour: We disembark and drive to the 12th century town of Lauzerte. A hill top castle-nau with a bloody past but now a way point for pilgrims on the Saint Jaques trail to Santiago de Compostella. We enjoy lunch together and a magnificent view from the view point there before returning to the barge at a flight of five locks that will lead us into our final cruise through to our home base at Lacourt st Pierre

Friday -

After a leisurely breakfast, guests will be transferred to agreed drop off locations leaving the barge around 10:00AM.
