Itinerary 

Day 1 - Carcassonne
Occupied since the Neolithic and symbol of the middle age, you will visit the fortified city of Carcassonne, ascend the ramparts dating back to Gallo-Roman times, discover the medieval town, its fort, the cathedral. Roam and shop in the 19th century bastide of this regional capital Carcassonne will delight you.

Your evening will be in the 5* Hotel de la Cité with access to the spa as well as dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant.

Day 2 - Château Pennautier, Ladouce lock
The next morning, your 2CV will be waiting for your tour. Your road book will guide you through the vineyards to the Chateau Pennautier. After the guided visit of the chateau and wine tasting you may remain there for lunch or continue your tour towards the cathar castle Chateau de Lastours.

Time will have come to join Savannah at the lock of Ladouce. Once settled in comfortably, a glass of champagne will be the ideal moment to meet the crew. It’s in a most enchanting countryside cruise that you will enjoy the exclusiveness of this adventure and experience the refined joy of being on board the “ Savannah”. The evening will be spent moored in the country location of Villeseque lock.

Day 3 - Rennes le Château or Mirepoix village and Bram Port
After breakfast, abandon the Canal du Midi for the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. Mirepoix, magnificent medieval town in Ariège waits for you.
