Le Mirage Hotel-Barge

Mirage owners Mimi , Manon & Pascal, are your gracious hosts for an unforgettable cruise aboard their authentic 1950s French barge.


A central grand saloon area is filled with light and air from the large 30 portholes that line both sides of the barge. A portion of 3 hours each day devotes time to cruising along the canal, navigating the locks, and watching the beautiful countryside roll by, while lounging either on the well-appointed teak deck or on the inside bar, with its unique decor, reminiscent of a 1940s aviator's lounge.


In addition to cruising, you'll join your tour guide for daily excursions in the air-conditioned van. The area offers many interesting attractions to explore, including charming villages, wineries, restaurants, covered markets, and historic sites.


Pascal now puts his extensive skills as a fighter-pilot to use flying a classic WWI biplane, the Comet, taking passengers for an extraordinary 35 minute flight to experience the Languedoc countryside from the air.


Enjoy your holidays with us from 3-4-5 or 6 nights cruise itineraries include a special ‘lunch ashore’ program, at quality local restaurants, to taste the regional cuisine in typical French villages.

  • All lunches ashore in local restaurants.
  • Unique biplane flight option: experience Midi from the air!
