6. The Canal du Midi's Fonserannes Locks
January 17, 2018

While many visitors are prepared for the beauty of the Languedoc-Roussillon countryside and the delicious food and wine they’ll taste on a barge cruise, France still has some awe-inspiring surprises up its sleeve for visitors to the Canal du Midi. Probably one of the most impressive of these is the seven-rise staircase lock of Fonserannes. The engineering involved in working out a system in which barges can travel up and down the seven ovoid chambers (there is actually an eighth chamber, but this is no longer in use), raising boats 21.5m over a distance of 300m, is staggering. But what is... (read more)

History lovers are in their element on a barge holiday in France. The country’s heritage stretches back for millennia; it’s fascinating to see traces of its ancient past glimpsed in a modern setting. The Roman occupation of Gaul left its mark across the country, nowhere more so than in the South of France; the Pont du Gard, the arena of Arles and the Maison Carrée in Nimes are all top attractions for history buffs on a barge holiday.

For the French, food is a way of life; meals are far more than just a time to eat, but a time to gather, exchange views and enjoy the pleasure of well prepared food together. For this reason a meal in France cannot be rushed.

18. For the Love of Locks: A History of the Waterways
November 30, 2017

As barge cruise aficionados know, the canal system is an intricate and carefully balanced feat of engineering. The keystone that supports these waterways is the lock.

November 30, 2017

For a newcomer to the barge holiday, all barges may look alike. However, there are numerous types of vessels with distinct differences in their histories as well as designs.

November 30, 2017

Though you may be a lover of barge holidays in France, how much do you actually know about the history of this mode of transportation?

23. Barge Holiday Overview: The River Shannon
November 20, 2017

The River Shannon is Ireland’s longest river and, thanks to the folklore that surrounds it, also one of its most famous. Known in Irish as Abhainn Na Sionainne, the river runs for an impressive 386km from County Cavan in the north to Limerick in the south-west, from where its extensive estuary works its way out into the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to the sheer length of the river, it is hardly surprising that it winds its way through no fewer than 17 counties, and forms three large lakes (or ‘loughs’) on its way to the ocean. The Loughs – Allen, Ree and Derg – are beautiful places to vis... (read more)
