Why Houseboat?


Velogenie and Capestang Nautic are two different companies, working together for several years. Capestang Nautic is mainly specialized in river tourism and has experience in inland waterways, both in the United Kingdom and in France, experienced in the sale and maintenance of boats.

 

 
This year, Velogenie and Capestang Nautic Services wanted to combine the two activities, bicycles and river boats (Vedettes, barges, barge and sailboat to rent on the Canal du Midi.

 
The villages and moorings to the east: Toulouse, Castelnaudary, Bram, Carcassonne, Trèbes, Marseilles, Puchéric, Redorte, Homps, Paraza, Ventenac, Somail, Capestang, Colombiers, Beziers, Villeneuve-lès-Beziers and Portiragnes. These river boats will allow you to switch to another type of holiday on the Canal du Midi by making you enjoy the unusual holiday.



Why ? Because life aboard a boat can be fun and comfortable

If you have never tried staying aboard.

 
If you ever thought of staying on a boat for a holiday but not really sure of navigating or piloting a large craft. 

 
Or If you not like the idea to queue at locks, accumulate stress every time you have to moor up for the night. This is an opportunity made for you.

In the village of Capestang, you will spend two days and two nights aboard this beautiful star. During the day, we recommend a visit to the Saint-Etienne collegiate church, built on the site of Saint-Félix church dated from the VI century. A bicycle ride of around 5kms towards Béziers you will arrive in the picturesque village of Poilhes whereupon a visit to the Vin D’Auberge is a must for all wine. Continuing your route towards Béziers you will inevitably fall on the famous tunnel of Malpas. It was, dug in 1679-1680 to pass the Canal du Midi under the hills of Ensérune. Here you will discover an archaeological site including the vestiges of an ancient Roman village. Finishing your cycling tour at Béziers, continue and visit the famous nine- locks of Fonserannes, you will not be disappointed! And to finish your stay take note that every year around August 15th, nearly a million people arrive in Béziers for a five- day Catalan festival to participate in one of the biggest events of the year in this region; la Feria!
