About Trèbes

TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL 2022

Owing to the operational challenges that coronavirus has presented us with, we have taken the decision not to open our base in Trebes for the 2020 and 2021 boating seasons. If you have a booking that is affected by this base closure, where possible, your booking will be switched to a different base within the same cruising region. Will be contact you to let you know, but please bear with us while we work through affected bookings in departure order. We thank you for your patience. 

Our Trèbes base is just a 3hr cruise to the iconic Cathar stronghold of Carcassonne in the west. Once you’ve done this ‘must-see’ attraction, we recommend you ‘about turn’ and venture east into the heart of the Midi. 1hr west of Trèbes there’s a fantastic cookery school in Millepetit, and another 8hrs after that you’ll reach the Château wine cellars at Ventenac & Paraza. Trèbes is also a good start or end base if you have kids - a 5km taxi ride away is Lake Cavayère, home to a host of outdoor fun and activities. 

From Trèbes it is:

  • 13 hrs (31 locks) to our base in Castelnaudary
  • 6.5hrs (14 locks) to our base in Homps
  • 19hrs (32 locks) to our base in Port Cassafières
  • 14hrs (30 locks) to our base in Narbonne
