Are you ready for one of life’s more laid-back travel experiences: an ideal mix of relaxation, scenery, history, exercise and fine food-and-wine dining in the Languedoc region of France’s southwest?
Then you are ready for Anjodi.
Barge cruising is the absolute antithesis of today’s 5,000-passenger cruise ship experiences. For example, it takes all seven of us on this trip only a couple of minutes to step on or off the barge, or set out on an excursion. And as you will read here, the Anjodi experience stands out in so many ways.
when you travel, you have to be flexible. in the case of anjodi, this means fitting into a relatively small cabin - the reason i gave the cabin category four instead of five stars.
i'm tall and was travelling by myself, so i asked to have my bed in the smaller, "basilic" cabin made up as a double. that meant it filled the cabin from side to side, with only a fairly small open area at the foot of the bed.
the tradeoff is travelling in a character-full, venerable old barge that has been refitted to accommodate four cabins.
so note the advice in the preparatory material to consider having the beds made up as singles.
