See the Canal du Midi from a unique and spectacular viewpoint with a
5 star cruise on board Hotel Barge Savannah
There is something very special about the Canal du Midi, something that simply makes people fall in love with it. Running from the city of Toulouse down to the Mediterranean port of Sète, the Canal du Midi is arguably the most beautiful and fascinating stretch of inland waterway in Southern France.
Include the skies in your cruise itinerary
For a limited period only, Hotel Barge Savannah’s 6 night cruise* on the Canal du Midi will include a sensational luxury flight over this iconic canal. The circular route starts from Montpellier and flies out over the lakes and lagoons of the beautiful Camargue.
For cruises booked for the end of this season, or for early bookings for 2017, guests on board Savannah can discover the Canal du Midi from the sundeck of Savannah, via the countryside roads (aboard a luxury Mercedes mini-van with tour guide, and a unique 2CV self-drive outing) and now from the sky with a helicopter flight over the southern section of the Canal du Midi.
Your luxury helicopter
This luxury 5 seater Ecureuil helicopter, based at Montpellier airport, gives you a breathtaking birds-eye view over the major landmarks of the area – Montpellier, Pic St Loup, St Guilhem le Desert, the Canal du midi, the Etang de Thau and Sète. The flight plans have been carefully designed to include the most fascinating sights and best views of the region, but can be modified according to guests’ preferences.
This super addition to Savannah’s luxury excursion programme is worth 2,500 €, but is only available with a Savannah cruise free of charge.
*Only available for 6 night cruises, minimum 4 guests. The helicopter carries 6 persons, including the pilot. In the event of your party being 6 guests or more, 2 flights will be inclusively arranged.
