Belmond Alouette Adventures off the beaten track

Belmond Alouette is the most intimate of the Belmond Afloat in France fleet. Perfect for small groups and romantic holidays, our barge traverses the Canal du Midi. As you dine on spectacular cuisine prepared by cordon bleu chefs, remark on delightful scenery passing by picture frame windows.

Recline on deck chairs under the sun as Belmond Alouette gently drifts down-river, or select a book from the library and perch under the canopy whilst revelling in luxurious surroundings. Two exquisitely decorated cabins accommodate up to four guests, each en-suite with a choice of double or twin beds.


Soak up the views on the sun deck. Large picture windows in the lounge offer spectacular views of passing scenery.
