Athos is a luxury hotel boat that cruises the Canal du Midi with up to 10 people. Her full time crew of 5: Captain, Tour Guide, 2 Housekeepers and a private Chef will host you onboard. Hire the whole boat, or just your cabin for the week.
A week on a hotel-boat is a once in a lifetime experience. The Athos is a 30m French "Chaland" type péniche originally constructed in 1964 to carry grain, sand and wine on the Canal du Midi. Today, the interior volumes are fitted with cosy hardwood, a spacious dining table for 10 and a comfortable lounge area with sofas and armchairs, an inviting hardwood bar, and surrounding panel windows that let in the glorious Midi sunshine and spectacular countryside views while cruising.
One of Athos' best assets is her huge top deck, measuring 13m x 5.5m with a hydraulic awning and comfortable lounge-seats as well as an outdoor dining table. Outdoor luxury is best enjoyed from the spacious deck of Athos!
