Boat trip

"Relax, unwind and take in the beautiful countryside"

Completely bespoke canal boat cruises

along the picturesque UNESCO heritage Canal du Midi.

Morning, all day or evening sunset cruises are a wonderful way to relax, unwind and take in the beautiful countryside at a very slow 4mph pace.

The boat

The boat, named ‘Bordeaux’, departs from the very picturesque hamlet of Le Somail, in the Aude region of France.

Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

You are welcome to bring your own picnic and drinks, or I offer various catered options. We can discuss your menu options, to make sure you get exactly what you want.

The following are examples only. I can consider any special requests (potentially at a supplementary cost). All dietary restrictions can be catered for.

I can have breakfast all set up and waiting for your arrival, so that I can set off on the boat, and you can enjoy your breakfast on the move.

Boat trip extra’s:

* For birthdays or special occasions, I also enjoy baking, so can offer personalised birthday cakes, decorated to your specifications.

* Extra crew member to serve drinks and food whilst we are cruising along. That way I do not have to moor the boat to serve you myself.

* I am also a photographer, so am more than happy to take shots of you all. Posed or candid natural photos. So you can capture the memories to look back on in years to come.

Well-being cruise

* As a Reiki practitioner I also offer ‘well-being cruises’. If you like, add a Reiki treatment or cranial massage to the boat trip.

* I also work with many other therapists in this area, so can offer a whole array of treatments from sound therapy to deep tissue massage to beauty treatments. We set up our ‘treatment’ room inside the boat in one of the bedrooms.

* Also creative workshops, like cookery or art, work very well sat on the roof of the boat, under the shady trees amongst nature.

> There is also a very pretty aqueduct that passes over the river Cesse. This is a great stop for families with children that would like to play in the water. Bring your river shoes and you can cool off, paddle and have a splash around.

I love to make these days as special and memorable as possible for you.

No request is too much, and there’s no mould that you need to fit in to.

Make this your special, unique and perfect day.
