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).

                                      beautiful rural retreat

                                      Alison G.

                                      Wonderful boat obviously well loved by the owner, a well equipped, comfortable and magically different place to stay. It is in a beautiful rural area with easy access to all the conveniences of a decent sized town and is a great base from which to enjoy all the region has to offer. There is plenty to enjoy within an easy flat bicycle ride on days when you fancy having a bit too much wine with your lunch! We can't wait to go back.
