Most boats have en-suite facilities and the interiors are spacious and tastefully furnished. There is every comfort you could wish for and the boats are available to hire for a weekend, a few days or a week or more.

Most boating holidays in France start at Redon, which is known as the Venice of the West. Redon is about three hours away from Paris and is situated at the crossroads of the Vilaine and the Canal De Nantes A Brest. A typical journey lasting one week is out of Redon, through Gacilly, Malestroit, Josselin and back again.

Along the way you will pass through pine covered, rolling hills, peaceful farmlands, orchards and heather covered moorland.
