Hotel Barge Mirage

Hop aboard the barge Mirage and experience magical times
in a single setting for relaxation.

Historical background

The story of the Mirage barge is a dream story : Jeannette's dream.

Her friends and patrons, Bernard and Jean-Michel, helped her make it come true. This is how a new life began for her in this unusual spot of Occitania. A life made of encounters, sharing and trips along the water.

Giving a warm welcome to her visitors and being attentive to their needs: this is Jeannette's philosophy. On board the Mirage, she invites you to relax peacefully and accompanies you in the discovery of uncommon rural and historical heritage.
