Witam. Baza Le Boat w Fontenoy le Chateau: Łatwy dojazd, duży parking przy samym nabrzeżu, można podjechać samochodem pod samą łódź. Personel miły, chętnie pomoże lub udzieli informacji. Jedynie toalety trochę małe, otwarte tylko w czasie pracy biura. Hausboat- Horizon-4: Super łódź, duża i przestronna. Kabiny wystarczająco duże, materace na łóżkach wygodne, poszewki na pościel i ręczniki czyste. Szafki ubraniowe niestety małe. Toalety z dużym prysznicem, czyste i funkcjonalne. Kuchnia OK, dwie lodówki, wyposażona we wszystkie akcesoria kuchenne ( sztućce, szklanki, garnki itp). Ciepła woda nagrzewa się od pracy silnika więc przy dłuższym postoju szybko się skończy. Sterowanie łodzią proste, ma dwa trustery więc można ją obrócić w miejscu choć trzeba pamiętać że mają napęd elektryczny i nie należy ich nadużywać. Na pokładzie słonecznym dużo miejsca, grill gazowy super.

From the moment I called to book our vacation till the morning we returned the keys to the boat, we had nothing but great service. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The boat was amazingly easy to drive, after a lesson on how to drive it. We rented a double kayak and stand up paddle boat, they were strapped to the boat and ready for take off when we arrived, and our teenagers used them everyday. There were 9 of us on the four bedroom boat and we never felt like we were in each others way. 9 of us travelled on the boat. 4 adults 2-18 year olds and three 15 year olds. The two back bedrooms were very cozy not good if your claustrophobic, in the other two bedrooms we split the beds apart to make two separate beds. And we used the fold out bed in kitchen. Worked great.

Nous avons adoré notre croisière sur le Canal du Midi. Nous avons apprécié l'EXCELLENT service à la clientèle de Le Boat du début à la fin et surtout l'employé de Castelnaudary M. Mohamed Zourgane qui a répondu à TOUTES nos craintes et nos questions par courriel et par téléphone avant le départ. Il a été exceptionnelement patient et très professionnel. Le Horizon4 était parfait et très confortable. Tous les restos recommandés par Le Boat étaient EXCELLENTS! Toutefois,la cafetière était trop petite pour 7 personnes...et l'air climatisé ne fonctionnait pas. Le Horizon4 était très confortable pour 7 personnes et facile à conduire. Tous les employés des bases Le Boat le long de notre parcours ont été très progessionnels et très agréables.

e Company in Canada, I expected them to offer prompt and efficient service, which they did. Hopefully, this will continue in the This being the first year of the years to come. They were also flexible in making suggestions as to an alternate route, during our 4-5 day experience. This greatly enhanced that experience. We were a family group of 10 on the Horizon 4. We rented a bicycle, with a child seat. We also rented a 2 person kayak. Both of these extras were well used and worked fine.

The staff was very helpful when we checked in and worked to solve as many issues as possible. We were not able to get any mattresses for the 2 children who were sleeping in the lounge on the table. When we returned, the office was just closing and although I had a couple questions, I was told that the office was closing and I could speak to a staff member in the morning. This was not possible as we had an early morning train. Even though it was very hot during the entire trip, the air cooling system was sufficient to make it somewhat pleasant inside the boat and we loved being up on deck where the breeze from our motion kept it comfortable.. The cooking facilities and freezer and refrigerator combination were worked very well. The itinerary and port stops were wonderful - we enjoyed each stop.
