The lay out of the boat
The physical constraints of the Canal du Midi determine the size of the boat : 30m. long , 5m wide and this, in turn, determines the lay out of the interior and the number of passengers we can accomadate.
To maintain maximum comfort for everyone,we have chosen to carry just 12 passenger
The Haricot Noir proposes :
- 3 bedrooms with twin beds (that can be pushed together) with their own bathrooms.
- One double bedroom with its own bathroom
- 2 bedrooms with bunk beds ( big enough for adults) with their own bathrooms.
All the bedrooms are spacious and, thanks to their portholes, they are light too they have natural ventilation and central heating.
The sitting room
Roomy and light with a big dining table which seats 14.
It has everything you need to prepare your own snacks using the local produce you will find in the markets and villages along the way . Your drinks will stay cool in the fridge.
The sitting room
Down a step from the dining room , this cosy space is the place to read, watch T.V., play board games or simply relax.
On the barge from the deck you can enjoy the typical countryside of the Midi to the full and indulge in the pleasure of the open air protected by parasols and sunshades.
If you want to explore further afield 6 bicycles are available without additional cost.
For your stay, we provide all the necessary equipment ; electrical appliances as well as the basics ( sponges, cloths, cleaning products , wahing powder...)
