Hotel Barge Savannah

Luxury CRUISES on the Canal du Midi

Hotel barges are elegant and supremely comfortable, converted from traditional vessels or created as cruising boutique hotels from new. They are large and stable so you’ll experience the smoothest of relaxing week-long vacations in high style.

Guests that have enjoyed a special safari vacation at the Savannah Lodge in South Africa can look forward to the same unique attention, almost on the other side of the world, cruising with Adrian Bramouillé on board Savannah, the luxury hotel barge, during the summer months in France.


Hotel Barge Savannah cruises along the world-famous Canal du Midi in southern France. She is a truly stunning boat, her warm exterior colouring attracting envious looks all round. Her livery is complemented with excellent interior décor; she is superbly fitted and finished throughout in rich mahogany, classic ceramic tiling in the bathrooms, and a tasteful selection of high-quality contemporary furniture in the saloon.

Up to seven guests are treated to a full and fascinating itinerary, with visits to pretty villages and historic towns and cities. Savannah operates for charters and cabin bookings, and provides family and 3-night cruises as well as helicopter rides and overnight stays in a fabulous Château.

THE Canal du Midi, France

The Canal du Midi has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in acknowledgement of the astonishing feat carried out by its 17th century architect Pierre-Paul Riquet in linking the Etang du Thau in the south east with the River Garonne in Toulouse, effectively making it possible to convey goods from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. Riquet’s audacity in engineering can be seen in the flight of nine characteristically oval-shaped locks at Fonserannes, near the ancient city of Beziers which is famous not just for its 13th century cathedral, but for its bullfighting festival too. If ticking off UNESCO sites is your thing, then you get two for one in Carcassonne, where the canal passes close to the ancient citadel that forms one of the most iconic skylines in the whole country.
