We recently had a holiday on the Canal du Midi - one week on the boat and one week in a gite. The boat base was in Le Somail and as we could not take over the boat until late in the day we needed an overnight stop close to the canal. Well, we could not have got any closer....

Dirk and Inge have the most wonderful house on the banks of the Canal du Midi. Beautiful location. Fascinating house. Amazing value with a great fresh breakfast thrown in. Restaurants within a few hundred yards - in fact one next door! We were cycling the canal so can't recommend it highly enough to you cyclists out there.

Stayed at 8 different places on or near the canal. Everything from basic to expensive hotels. This was the most fun. Dirk and Inge are gold standard hosts. Great fun place to stay in a beautiful well located property. Lovely breakfast was taken in the front garden, where the statue of Neptune is situated, next to the canal. Dirke gave...

Great rooms and delicious French breakfast with home made jams. Whether you want a night before or after doing a boat trip on the canal du...

We selected this B & B based upon the Trip Advisor Reviews - and were not disappointed. My partner is attempting to walk most of the Canal du Midi from Port-la-Nouvelle to Toulouse so a good night's sleep at each stage is a prerequisite. Here we found it so peaceful and enjoyable that we stayed for two nights instead of...

Dirk and Inge warmed us up quickly after we arrived on a rainy afternoon on bicycles. We were quickly given cups of excellent coffee and cookies and then shown to our room. The room was nice, quiet, clean and comfortable. We were given a very nice breakfast the next morning and pedaled off down the road. I would stay here...

From the moment we arrived at Narbonne station to the moment we left Le Neptune, Dirk and Inge were the best hosts we could have wished for - warm, welcoming, and helpful without being intrusive.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A charming B & B situated in the picturesque and historic harbor town, "Le Somail" on the Canal du Midi, 12 km from Narbonne and 30 km from the Mediterranean Sea. The house is a wine mansion from the 19th century with many original features such as the stairways, floors, fireplaces, cabinets, mirrors, etc ... It is wonderful to have breakfast on the south-facing terrace surrounded by greenery, while overlooking the canal. All rooms are very quiet, spacious and equipped with a private bathroom and toilet. ... more   less
