Perfect for those looking to enjoy an effortless balance of sightseeing and relaxation deep in the southwest of France, Anjodi offers a lovely cruise encompassing the most memorable of experiences.
Anjodi presents nautical character and charm, especially on the inviting wooden deck with its snappy blue and white striped furniture. By day guests linger outside under parasols or relax in the hot tub, savoring vignettes of the French countryside as it floats by. Bicycling and walking along the tree-shaded towpaths of the Languedoc reveals the region’s delightful flora and fauna.
Inside, the social center of the barge is the salon/dining room, comfortably appointed with two sink-in sofas, where guests can unwind with a glass of wine and curl up with a book from the boat’s small library. Cozy cabins are decorated with bright pops of blue and yellow, furthering the traditional French aesthetic.
Mediterranean inspired cuisine is an approachable array of contemporary and classic French favorites, and wine pairings are carefully selected to reflect the region’s vineyards, both known and emerging. A dinner ashore in the small town of Beziers rounds out the comprehensive culinary explorations offered on the Anjodi.
Excursions on the Anjodi are naturally tailored to showcase the interesting historical treasures in the region, many of which are from the Roman era. Oenophiles will especially enjoy a tour and tasting at a 500-year-old canal side winery, while foodies and Francophiles are in for a treat at the region’s bustling covered market.
For casual travelers, the décor, cabins, and service on the Anjodi are the perfect components to a marvelous vacation.
