Canals of France
Welcome Aboard the Fandango & Tango, two of France's most authentic and beautiful boutique hotel barges. Owner operated, we guarantee an exclusive and unforgettable vacation for your group of 4 to 12. Our cruises float through the Languedoc, one of Southern France's most fascinating regions, recently dubbed "the next Provence." Our waterway is the picture-perfect 300 year old Canal du Midi, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered to be the prettiest canal in France.
Fandango and Tango are famous for the beautiful décor and fine gourmet cuisine and wine served on board. Featured in such publications as 'Bon Appetit', 'Travel & Leisure' and 'Food and Wine', our vessels are one of the best ways to sample local delicacies of Southern France, both on board and at local restaurants, a unique feature of the cruise program.
A barge cruise on Fandango or Tango means relaxed luxury plus a chance for up-close contact to a stimulating local culture. Each day will be a flowing experience of cruising for a few hours and enjoying a daily sightseeing excursion in our air-conditioned mini-van. This can be to visit local sites of historic or cultural interest, shop at open air markets, enjoy winetastings and the olives from the prize winning olive oil mill, l'Oulibo. While the barge cruises at a leisurely pace you can walk alongside, ride a bicycle into the countryside or simply put your feet up on our provencal tiled decks while the chef prepares your next delicious meal. An English-speaking crew of four pampers you the week long.
