Experience the historic waterways of France On a boating holiday in one of our 12 French areas, you’ll get a relaxing vacation with delicious gastronomy and beautiful surroundings. Welcome to France Enjoy a floating vacation with family and friends on the French waterways in your own quiet pace and learn about the French people, history and culture. The French waterways run through some of Europe's most beautiful and varied landscapes. Shop for a riverside picnic in one of the colorful marketplaces or enjoy a gourmet meal in one of the picturesque fortress towns. Another lovely way to spend a peaceful evening is in the salon on the boat with a glass of wine from one of the region's wineries. Sailing in France The difference in altitude between the mountainous country and the ocean is quite large in France. Thus, it is necessary to regulate the water level at different intervals using a well-running lock-system. The locks can be quite close to each other in mountainous regions and it is a very special experience to use the boat-elevator in the Alsace-region. About 800 years ago the French began to build the intricate canal systems, connecting the large French rivers. Often you´ll see the old barge trails running along the channels, where horses in ancient times laboriously had to pull loads of overcrowded boats against the current. The old waterways have lost their significance as industrial transportation lines but have been reopened with restored bridges and lock systems to the benefit for those of us who love boating holidays. 12 different regions Seatravel offers river and canal holidays in 12 different French regions. From Alsace with the beautiful half-timbered houses in Northern France to the fantastic Burgundy with prestigious wineries. Further south Camargue lures visitors with lakes full of oyster beds and pink flamingos. Idyllic Brittany has a breath of fresh air from the sea and there are famous Cognac areas along the Charente river. And let us not forget the sunny Aquitaine nor the famous Canal du Midi in Southern France near the Mediterranean.
