Béziers, there you have all the amenities, enough dogs here and a very helpful harbor master, you have the advantages and the disadvantages of a big city, but you walk here directly in nature
it is quiet and safe here
have a Basset hound yourself

I know winter moorings in the South have been covered in previous threads but I wanted to pick people’s brains on good winter moorings in the south of France if you have two huge dogs, that need a good run everyday.

We are currently spending our first winter in Auxerre, which is ideal. It’s a lovely town and we have green space right by the boat, no roads and plenty of parks and woods nearby.

My neighbour who has spent time in the South recommends Capestang. This sounds great for the dogs but maybe a bit quiet. I just wanted to hear from anybody who had wintered there or had any other suggestions.

We are an 18m barge. 4.2m in the beam and 2.85 air draft but can collapse the wheelhouse if we need to.

Many thanks.
