The Naurouze Short Break overview
Lock westward from mediaeval Castelnaudary on a leisurely canal cruise through the French countryside, reaching an altitude of 190 metres (623 feet), the highest point on the canal, at Naurouze. Small villages with cafés intermingle with pastoral beauty. You feel the stress fade away on your Canal du Midi boat rental, stopping at local markets for regional foods and wines.
