Barge Cruises in Gascony
Gascony lies deep in the untouched French countryside in an area where time seems to have stood still.
Situated in southwest France at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, just east of the French Basque coast, Gascony is awash in sunflower fields, verdant forests, and placid lakes. Gascony’s relaxed and rural lifestyles are aligned with the daily pleasures of food and wine. Here, the rich flavors of the region’s signature foie gras is proudly paired with the craft production of small batch brandy known as Armagnac. Accessible via Toulouse, Bordeaux, or Agen, barge cruising in Gascony can be easily combined with several days in the adjacent Bordeaux region.
