Canal Boat

 

The Canal & Garonne River

Castets-en-Dorthe village sits at the first lock of the Canal des Deux Mers, composed of the Canal Latéral à la Garonne and the Canal du Midi.

Whatever the season, it’s always a pleasure to walk or cycle along the canal banks lined with sycamore trees.

In summer you can sit out and admire the boats moored at the port. You can’t miss the 40 metre barge called the ‘Mirabelle’ (right). The captain, Denis Larrose, offers a one week luxury wine and gourmet river cruise from Castets to St Emilion.
