The service we received at the boatyard at Benson was lovely. We travelled on the Calypso 14. It was clean and tidy with fresh towels and bedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would book again Clean and tidy with everything we needed.

Staff were always helpful during phone calls and able to arrange extras very quickly by phone. Staff at Bensons were also incredibly friendly. My only comment would be that there were a lot of added extras (damage waiver, fuel charge etc) that I hadn't spotted in advance - would be good if these were all clear during the search at the beginning. The boat was great - good size, layout and cleanliness.

Service was great right from the booking process over the phone to collection of the boat in Tannay. The boat handover was excellent, and the boat itself was very good too. A spacious and comfortable boat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Charente. The boat was in good condition and the instructions were good. Excellent boat, we hired one the same when we did a trip on the Lot river and were so happy we got the same again. Bow thrusters were a big help. We had 2 couples and used the third room for our luggage.

Lesley Stewart said

When I started inquiring about a Le Boat vacation in France, Amanda was very helpful in answering all my questions. There was a little hiccup with my reservation and she took care of it immediately in a very professional way. The staff at our pick up point in Decize were also very welcoming. The boat was even nicer than we expected! Overall we had a fantastic time and will definitely be doing this again. I thoroughly recommend Le Boat based on our experience.
