Clair de Lune travel on the beautiful Canal du Midi in the South of France where sunshine is a given. This canal is argued by some to be the most beautiful in France. I would not disagree. But the Midi was built 250 years ago when boats were smaller. The normal size canal boat will not fit into the locks. Clair de Lune is not a barge conversion but was built specifically for this canal. It is magnificent.
