Location: Canal du Midi
Capacity: 6 Guests
This fabulous 4-6-passenger barge is owned by Liz McCaughtry, an Irish chef who has embraced the local Mediterranean cuisine with gusto, and her husband Rene who is the French pilot with a ready smile and amazing mechanical know-how. An innocative hydraulic sun shade, inviting new deck furniture, and ongoing classy decorative touches create an incredibly appealing atmosphere onboard. Each of Emma's three equal cabins sports a gorgeous handmade Irish quilt that reflects the barge owners' interests, which are primarily the celebrated Canal du Midi, its history and fine cuisine, and the Emerald Isle! Liz keeps an herb garden on the top deck for the perfect touch to her regional specialties, which are often served alfresco. Smart interiors provide an extremely comfortable haven to enjoy Liz & Rene’s amazing cruise, and the itinerary features the seaside ports of Agde and Sete in the summer months. As one guest put it, "The last person who treated me this well was my Mother!" Frontiers strongly recommends that you spend your special week enjoying Liz and Rene's engaging hospitality, stylish ambience, and stellar cuisine for the barge cruise you’re hoping for.
