Воскресенье, день 1
Guests are met at the designated meeting point and escorted in the air-conditioned minibus to Rosa, moored in the Port of Montauban. Following a 'Champagne Welcome', there is time for a tour of this beautiful old town set on the banks of the canal, before returning for your first dinner on board.
Понедельник, день 2
Montauban to Montech
This morning Rosa meanders up the flight of ten locks on the beautiful, recently restored branch canal skirting the Forest of Agre and moors in the heart of the little town of Montech. In the afternoon we head into the Côtes du Frontonnais wine region in the minibus, for a tasting of the outstanding cuvee ‘Optimum’ at the renowned Chateau Bellevue la Foret. Return to the barge and try your hand at a game of Boules on the quay this evening before dinner on board.
Вторник, день 3
Montech to Castelsarrasin
After breakfast, there is a guided tour of the remarkable inclined Water Plane, an amazing feat of engineering that by-passes five locks and will lower vessels 43 feet all in one go when back in service in 2014/15. Then, following a relaxing morning cruise to Castelsarrasin, a short drive to the Ferme des Jauberts at Angeville where we can tour the estate and taste the foie gras of Eric Couderc, accompanied by some fine local wine. Dinner aboard.
Среда, день 4
Castelsarrasin to Moissac
After breakfast, we cross the River Tarn via a 1000 foot long aqueduct to descend towards Moissac through a staircase of delightful locks and moor for lunch on the River Tarn below the old watermill. Then we may cruise downstream to St. Livrade for an afternoon’s swimming or canoeing, and visit Moissac's 7th century Abbey with its wonderfully preserved cloisters and chapel. This evening, perhaps after an amusing game of boules, we stroll ashore to savour regional specialties at the excellent restaurant ‘Le Florentin’, in front of the spectacular entrance portal of the Abbaye St-Pierre de Moissac.
Четверг, день 5
Moissac to Valence D’Agen
Today the Rosa rises up from the Tarn and turns West on the brick-lined canal through Moissac. After negotiating the swing bridge, we cruise between the placidly flowing waters of the Garonne and the foothills of the Quercy massif, before mooring at Pommevic. After lunch we visit the 1tth century Château de Goudourville before a drive to Auvillar, a 15th century village famous for its pottery and perched high on the side of a gorge above the River Garonne. Return to Rosa and cruise to Valence d'Agen and a tour of this old "Bastide" town with its Palladian canal side public wash-house and arcaded market place. Dinner on board.

A leisurely morning cruise through the bucolic countryside to the historic town of Agen.
