Description

Built in 1929 to transport grain between Amsterdam and Paris, the 30-meter-long, 5-meter-wide Anjodi was converted into a hotel barge in 1983, with a passenger capacity of up to eight guests. It has four cabins, each with a porthole and are equipped with air conditioning, closet, reading lamp and tiled bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The salon is furnished with dark woods, large windows, two sofas, a coffee table and a dining table for eight. The room also contains a bar, a small library, and a stereo with CDs.
The sun deck is furnished with chairs and loungers, umbrellas, tables, and a large hot tub. Snacks and wine are often served on the deck, as well as occasional outdoor meals. Anjodi has six touring bikes, board games, bocce balls and binoculars are also available for guests. The barge has four crew members: a skipper (captain), chef, hostess and tour guide, all of whom speak English and French. During most of the season, the barge travels the Canal du Midi from Marseillan to Le Somail.

Wonderful experience on a very small ship!

I liked

Fun to cruise on the historic Canal du Midi. We did a lot of sailing which was great.

I didn't like

Wish they had another level of vodka (like Grey Goose or Ketel One instead of Absolut).

Comment

The captain is absolutely wonderful (his name is Laurent) and the food (Chef Toby) was outstanding. It was cool to be so close to locks (different than river cruising - felt cooler on a barge) and the spa/hot tub onboard was AWESOME! Room was really great and we were thankful for air conditioning at the height of summer.
