Day 2, Monday - Trebes to Puicheric
Fascinating morning tour of Carcassonne. Dating back to the Gallo-Roman era, this is the most complete mediaeval fortified city in existence today with its 52 watchtowers, portcullis and extraordinary repertoire of defences, which resisted the many armies that tried to storm this glorious Camelot setting. Following a lunch cruise you will head to Golf de Carcassonne. Challenging water obstacles and bunkers make this a tactical golf course for players of all levels. Dinner on board.

Day 3, Tuesday - Puicheric to Homps
Morning cruise under the shade of the plane trees which line the canal to Puicheric. After lunch, golf at Golf de St Thomas.

Dinner on board.
(9 holes, 2,600m, Par 35)
Day 5, Thursday - Roubia to Le Somail
Morning cruise through vineyards and pine trees to the charming and historical village of the Le Somail, purpose built for the Canal du Midi. Take some time to explore the old bookstore of Le Somail.

(Appellation d’Origine Controlée), teamed with an excursion to “Oulibo”, Occitan for olive. This cooperative olive oil press is a great opportunity to sample the famous Lucques olive. Dinner on board.
Day 6, Friday - Le Somail to Sallèles d’Aude
This morning, enjoy a round of golf at Cap d’Agde. This golf course is located in a colourful landscape created by one of the world’s most renowned architects, Ronald Fream.

Afternoon cruise through the series of locks and narrow bridges of the Robine Canal, built after the Canal du Midi to link Narbonne and the Mediterranean. Cycle ahead and explore the village of Sallèles d’Aude, your final mooring. Captains Farewell Dinner on board.
