As you can probably tell, I've done the French canal route to the Med., and I'm not the only one to have done so! It's a bit different, needs some extra preparation and is a great way to travel if you have the time and a crew of 2 or more.
Here's a YouTube link that flicks through a family's Med cruise:

Jatkins makes a good proposal. Alternatively head for Port St Louis at the mouth of the Rhone where there are many boats for sale, or even Malta.

Start on the web!
