Hotel Barge Emma

Emma has been welcoming her guests aboard to cruise the magical Canal du Midi for the past 14 years. The warm Irish welcome and the charm of the French are beautifully combined in the owners Liz and René Jacquot who are your Chef and Captain. They are ably assisted by a friendly, competent hostess to look after all your needs aboard and a knowledgeable entertaining guide to take you on daily varied excursions into the Languedoc.


Emma has built her reputation on the excellence of the food and wines, the hospitality of your hosts and the warmth and comfort of the barge. As one guest put it “Treated like royalty but felt like family”.


Built to accommodate a maximum of 6 guests in 3 air conditioned en suite cabins, Emma is suitable for family groups, friends vacationing together and also accepts single cabin bookings. She does a choice of 3 routes during the season. Beziers towards Carcassonne, Carcassonne towards Toulouse and during the summer months, Beziers to Aigues Mortes.


The spacious upper deck is ideal for chilling out and watching the vineyards slip by and enjoying dinner and drinks under the stars. The cosy salon with its big picture windows means you miss nothing on days when the weather is less clement. The combination of feeling as if you have slipped back in time when life was not so hectic, and not forfeiting any of the creature comforts of the 21st century, makes this the holiday of a lifetime.
