Suggested barge holidays from our Penichette bases in Aquitaine

This region boasts 300km of navigable waterways, covering five very varied rivers and canals, all rich in history. As well as contrasting landscapes and a wealth of monuments, the region's reputation for fine food and wine adds to the delights of a cruise here.

Penichette Boat Holidays from Agen

From our base at Agen on the Canal du Midi there is the great 549 metre long aqueduct with its 23 arches. At Moissac don't miss the 11th century abbey, a treasure of medieval art, then why not turn into the beautiful River Tarn to cruise towards Montauban.

Cruising the River Baise, you wind your way through 65km of lush and intimate countryside. Discover fortified towns, gentle hills and flowery meadows, and do some angling along the way.

Towns you visit include Vianne, Lavardac and Nérac, seat of the Albret family. Looking out from the Chateau of Henri IV, the quayside with its old workshops converted into restaurants makes a marvellous view.

Penichette Boat Holidays from Valence sur Baise

From the quays of Condom the precious casks of Armagnac were shipped down to Bordeaux . See the Abbey of Flaran, a pearl of Cistercian art, before reaching the end of your cruise at Valence-sur-Baise.

North from Agen the Lower River Lot takes you 80km from Aiguillon to Villeneuve-sur-Lot and the centre of the medieval bastide country, as well as the plum orchards which produce the famous "Pruneaux". Spectacular scenery combines with medieval villages like Clairac and Castelmoron, with superb half-timbered houses. Casseneuil is a miniature Venice , and you shouldn't miss its church with splendid wall paintings. Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Penne-d'Agenais are good examples of the region's history and traditions.
