Boating Holidays in France

If you are considering a boating holiday or a canal boat holiday, then France should be at the top of your list.

France offers some of the most varied landscape in Europe, and as you cruise along the many rivers and canals you will see things that most people will never see, whilst on your French boating holiday.

Boating Holidays in France

Each region offers its own special landscapes, history and local culture, and as you travel through from one region to the next at a leisurely pace, you can not only experience the history and landscapes, but the ever important French cuisine while sipping a glass of the local wine.

A boating holiday in France will enable you to fully appreciate the beautiful countryside and architecture from Roman to Renaissance periods along with the chateaux dotted along the banks.  Plus with the glorious weather to match, it is not like travelling along the Norfolk Broads in the UK most of the year, when you are guaranteed to get some rain or gloomy days!

But there is such a wide choice available for your boating holiday and you can pick the area with the climate you would like; taking a Rhine River cruise or travelling further down South for even warmer weather.  But don't forget that whilst meandering along, you need to be on the right hand side of the river or canal, just as the roads are in France! 

In the North West of France there is Brittany, which is an area known for cider and crepes and to the East of France there are rivers and canals throughout the regions of Alsace and Lorraine.  You will find this area great for experiencing a diverse landscape from rolling hills to forests and you can always try the local French beer and crisp white wines that this region produces.

Burgundy within the centre of France is a great place to experience local cuisine and fine wines and the quaint historical towns provide lovely afternoon walks taking a step back in time with the history.

In the South of France, obviously with the more beautiful weather, you can experience travelling along the Canal du Midi, which is the oldest canal in Europe and runs from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic.  At the same time you will be able to take in the amazing variety of wildlife such as flamingos whilst on your canal boating holiday.

And as you can no doubt appreciate, this type of family holiday enables you to travel leisurely eating alfresco on board your boat or visiting the local bars and restaurants along your route and when your holiday is nearing its end, you know that no one will want to leave.
