Laurent Charbonnier

A well-known figure on the Canal du Midi, Laurent has over ten years barging experience with our good friends at European Waterways. 2019 will be his sixth year at the helm of Anjodi. With an impeccable understanding of customer service and an impish sense of humor, Laurent charms all of his guests.

He met his wife, Sarah, when they were both crew members on the French Barge L’Impressionniste in Burgundy. They now live with their two sons near the Canal du Midi.
