Briare

Just 200 meters from the famous Briare aqueduct, board one of our comfortable licence free boats.

After a short training session, cast off for a weekend, a week, or more to discover our region to the rhythm of the water of some ofthe most beautiful canals in France: The Briare and Loing Canal, between Loire and Seine, The ‘Canal Latéral à la Loire’ between Burgundy and Berry and the ‘Canal du Nivernais’ if time permits.
