Additional details

Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin:
anjodi ties up to a dock in town - or to a tree in the country
feet up, stress down - just cruisin', anjodi midi canal style!
l'ambassade, in beziers, has a very impressive cheese trolley - our one meal ashore is up to anjodi's standard
Carcassonne offers 2,500 years of history; we walk where Gauls and Romans walked
barge crew offer libations of all sorts between meals
you can walk faster than the barge is travelling; biking along canal towpath is another option
non-stop scenery, from dawn to dusk

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.

Cabin Review

Cabin twin/double

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.
