We have just returned from our second barge trip in Southern France. We
hired a 42 foot self-drive barge for a week on the Canal du Midi although
time constraints limited our trip to five days. There were 6 of us and the
barge was advertised as capable of 8 plus 2 in four cabins and a salon. It
was perfect for six. I will be publishing our log within the next couple of
weeks. We are already planning next year's barge trip. You can contact me
off the list if you need more information.
