France has a really interesting waterway system and there are Canal Boats in France for hire for your holidays from the North right down to the South. If you have never been on a boating holiday before then they are an excellent way for you to see the countryside and explore new places that you would not be able to see from any other type of holiday.
Due to the amount of waterways to choose from there are boatyards throughout France for you to choose from, so the best option is to pick the region you would like to go to and then choose which boatyard has the routes which most suite your holiday. There is a range of Canal Boats in France for you to hire, in reality they are usually river cruisers rather than the traditional canal boat, but they are still superbly well equipped and can sleep up to 12 people depending which boat you choose.
Cruising the rivers in France is a great deal of fun and an excellent holiday choice for the whole family. The boats are really simple to navigate and after some brief tuition at the beginning of your holiday from the boatyard staff you will be away in no time. On the boats you get everything you need in terms of facilities for a self catering break and the boats have comfortable living areas, good sleeping space and a well pointed bathroom. If you enjoy spending time off the boat then you can stop at many of the little towns and villages you will pass on your journey and sample the local cuisine and marvel at the fantastic French architecture and countryside. Taking one of the Canal Boats in France for your holiday is a great choice and a really cost effective holiday break.
