The Classic Nivernais Cruise

Nivernais, France

Reviews for the The Classic Nivernais Cruise

I travelled with my husband. He had some boating experience from more than 30 years ago. I had none. We were keen to combine seeing lesser known parts of Burgundy with a canal boat experience. We wanted a relaxing holiday.
Our cruise took us to larger towns and tiny villages. We loved them all! The boat gave us flexibility to stop where we wanted. We varied our evenings between eating in local restaurants and cooking on board using produce from some of the markets we encountered. We loved saying ' bonjour,' to every other boater, cyclist and lock keeper we came across. We really enjoyed our end of the day drinks on deck - we felt we had earnt it after a work out on the locks during the day. We loved the glorious countryside, pastoral scenes, villages and some chateau. The bird life around the canal is extraordinary.
Lunch with visiting friends, on the boat, in the autumn sun.....
Enjoyed the canal very much...... quaint villages, relaxed pace. Two couples would have been preferable, to simplify boat handling in the locks.
Not many restaurants along the way.
