Staying on this converted coal barge is a unique alternative to the typical B&B experience. If you are looking for a calm and peaceful night sleep with only the sound of rippling water and jumping fish, this is it. The imaginative furnishings give one a clue into the host's past career as a fighter pilot. Pasquale and Mimi are wonderful... More

Rather than stay in the usual B&B or hotel, we opted for a first time stay on a barge. Situated on the stunning Canal du Midi, the Mirage is a large converted barge - previously a coal carrier I understand. Through significant renovation and transformation it now serves as a wonderful B&B. Moored about 10 minutes drive outside of Carcassonne,... More

We stayed here at the beginning of the week. Six family members so we took up all the rooms. We were able to sit up on deck or in the sitting room below deck which was beautiful. Rooms are compact as you would expect on a boat but very well put together and each had a decent sized shower room... More

Situated on the canal du Midi, in open countryside and next to a lock, this is a great place to stay when visiting Carcassonne. It was Original, comfortable, quiet and spotless. We received a really good recommendation of a restaurant for dinner too. Breakfast was tasty and included home made chutneys and preserves.
