Péniche Amboise

B&b in Toulouse

Love life on the river? Then how about staying aboard a genuine péniche (barge) moored on the banks of the Canal du Midi? There are four cosy, colour-coded rooms, all with tiny private bathrooms and porthole windows. The bathrooms are separated from the bedrooms by a curtain. The best is 'Amboise', with cool cabin-beds and wood floors.
