This very stylish 6-passenger river yacht debuted in 1999, representing a new level of authenticity, comfort and elegance in deluxe barging—particularly on the narrow Canal du Midi. The barge reflects the sophisticated passions of her young, good-looking owners, whose background is in luxury yachting, and they've appropriately called Roi Soleil a "river yacht." Incorporating many innovations in design and decor, the exterior appearance is reminiscent of yachts from the 1920s. The impeccable interior features lavish use of Pierre Frey fabrics, hardwoods, brass, and handmade tiles. Onboard ambiance reflects that of a fine French home, with outstanding cuisine and wine, and Old World luxuries like embroidered linens. Their spring and autumn route from Avignon to Beziers provides an excellent way to see some of the great sights of Provence combined with the beauty of the Camargue, accompanied by your own private French guide. This is one of the best in the industry with a crew to match.
Meeting Point: Sunday at any one hotel, airport, or rail station in Toulouse/Carcassonne or Beziers/Montpellier for the Midi route; Avignon or Beziers/Montpellier for the Provence route (depending on cruise direction).
