I will be heading for the Canal DU Midi area in Late Jan to search for a barge.
My wife and I are looking for suggestions as to a place to base ourselves.
On the DBA site we have had these places posted Capistrang Carcassone Moisac Castelnaudry so far as there are barges wintering in the area and we can probably chat to bargees. Any thoughts on a place where we can huddle initially with other expats. My wife loves going to the GYM (got a thing about bingo wings and a few other bits that gravitation and age are not being too kind with.
My background is BA cabin crew for 15 years sailing for 15 travel inbetween plus a pub in Salisbury and a restaurant in Jersey the Channel Islands where I was based with BA plus heathrow.
My wife is also a very keen horsewoman though she does not ride these days,but she is un talkable to during morningline and pretty much all of sat afternoon.
We would also want to have French lessons as mine is okay for basics but I do get on with the French as I am a good cook in fact we had 12 French for Xmas lunch on our boat and those that could still walk were very 'appy!
i am a villager by nature. We lived in St Aubin in Jersey for many years. I love to walk to the shop and the pub we had a brief period in the hills behind Sanary and it was aweful the only person we saw for three months was the postman.
Too much information sorry, but if anybody has ideas Merci
