Villedubert Boat Rental Photos and Description

Boat, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

The barge Lodela is an old commercial barge used in Belgium and in the north of France from the 1930s. Completely restored in 2005, today the barge is an unusual and original form of tourist accommodation. It provides a remarkable level of comfort in an extremely pleasant setting. It has a beautiful shady terrace on the deck with a beautiful view of the canal. A small garden on the bank is also reserved for you.

Close to the barge there is a small lock, typical of the Midi canal. This location close to a lock is interesting as it allows you to find out about the operation of the canal and its history (listed as a World Heritage site).

The region offers a huge number of extraordinary sites: Carcassonne and its famous Medieval City, the town with two monuments listed by Unesco as World Heritage sites, the Cathar chateaux, the giant Cabrespine chasm, numerous abbeys including Fontfroide abbey, wine cellars... In short, sites that should not be missed just waiting for your visit!

For obvious safety reasons, hiring the barge is not recommended for families with children under 7 years of age or if children cannot swim yet.

Fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

After a long car journey we were met at the boat 'Lodela' by the owner, Hugues, a lovely friendly welcoming man who showed us around the boat and then sat with us and told us about lots of different places to visit during our stay. The boat itself was brilliant, the pictures do not do it justice, it was very clean and tidy, the master bedroom has an on suite bathroom which is great. It is very spacious and was plenty big enough for the 6 of us. Our party was 2 adults and 4 adult children (aged 17 to 25) they also thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would say its suitable for any age group. The boat itself is steeped in history and there are lots of interesting pictures and photos for you to see to that effect.

It was very hot during our stay and we spent all of our time up on the lovely deck, watching the boats go by some with more grace than others which was very entertaining! and relaxing in the sun. We were supplied with bicycles and cycled to Trebes with its lovely canal side restaurants and to Carcassonne with its medieval walled city, along the tow path, both nice easy routes suitable for everyone.

We had the most amazing holiday, totally different to anything we have done before, our only regret is that we didn't stay for two weeks but we are planning to go back for another stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants just that 'something a little bit different'.

Fantastische boot. Alles er op en er aan.. Schoon, in ėėn woord perfect.

Rust, veel te zien aan boten die langs komen. Hele aardige eigenaar en leuke sluiswachter.

Een prachtig plekje, zeer aan te bevelen. We komen zeker terug!!

De boot bood nog meer ruimte dan uit de foto's bleek. De keuken is echt groot, de woonkamer riant. De ruime tweepersoonshut heeft een eigen badkamer met wastafel, douche en toilet. Verder zijn er twee ruime eenpersoonshutten met daar tegenover zo'n zelfde badkamer met wastafel, douche en toilet. Helemaal top!

Wat niet op de foto's staat is de grote zonneluifel op het dek. Een mooie, lichte stoffen overkapping die het uitzicht geenszins belemmert, maar die de zon perfect tegenhoudt. Wij hadden 34 graden en hebben heerlijk kunnen zitten aan dek. Dat dek is trouwens zo groot, dat er voldoende ruimte in de zon overblijft.

En verder is het reality tv geblazen tussen 07.00 en 19.00 uur wordt de sluis bediend en varen de huurbootjes langs. Dat gaat niet altijd soepel. -)

Wij zaten zondag op de boot bovendien eerste rang bij de marathon van Carcassonne die over het pad aan de overzijde werd verlopen. Daar lopen, rennen, fietsen voor recreanten, altijd leuk om te zien. Goeie fietsen, prachtig rustige omgeving, mooie gelegenheid voor uitstapjes.

De boot heeft een eigen pad, daar komt dus niemand langs.

Geweldige accommodatie, deze boot bij de sluis. Leuk om iedereen voorbij te zien varen. Dicht bij Carcassonne, de nodige kasteel(ruines), abdijen en stadjes (o.a. montolieu). genieten van op het water zijn in een prachtig opgeknapte sloep. Al voor de tweede keer geweest en weer was het genieten.

Herrlich gelegenes Boot, der Vermieter war unwahrscheinlich hilfsbereit und nett - wir haben uns sauwohl gefühlt.

Von dem Standort bieten sich wunderbare Radtouren in die Stadt oder entlang dem Canal an. Schöne Ausflüge in die schwarzen Berge, die Pyrenäen lassen sich von dort unternehmen.

Auch ein Tag auf dem Boot ist nie langweilig, denn man ist nicht alleine Spaziergänger, Läufer, Radwanderer und Hobbykäpitäne passieren gemächlich das Boot. - man grüßt nett, wünscht einen guten Weg und schon kommt der nächste ...

Een hele speciale vakantie op de 85y-oude Lodela , op het Canal du Midi.

De boot ligt dan wel stil op zijn plekje , maar het varen mis je niet.

Het uitzicht , en het rustige leven rondom , geeft genoeg om van te genieten.

Al helemaal onder de zonnekap , die toch wel nodig is in het warme Zuid-Frankrijk. Carcassonne heeft een prachtige oude gigantisch grote burcht, zeer een bezoek waard .
