Boating Holidays in France with Seatravel

Enjoy a boat vacation with family and friends on the French waterways in your own quiet pace. Boating trips are relaxed and great for quality time with family and friends. The French waterways runs through some of Europe's most beautiful and varied landscapes.

The "real" France is best experienced on a boat vacation - that is at least our modest opinion :). Experience colorful marketplaces or stop for a picnic along the river banks, or perhaps 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.

Seatravel offers river and canal holidays in 12 different French regions. From Alsace with the beautiful half-timbered houses in Northern France or in the fantastic Burgundy with prestigious wineries. Further south the Camargue lures visitors with lakes full of oyster beds and pink flamingos. Idyllic Brittany with a breath of fresh air from the sea and the famous Cognac areas along the Charente river, not forgetting sunny Aquitaine and the Canal du Midi in Southern France near the Mediterranean. It is no coincidence that most people associate France with good wine and food, and it is said to this effect, that if Paris is the heart of France, then Burgundy is the stomach and Champagne the soul of France.

About 800 years ago the French began to build the intricate canal systems, which today connects the large French rivers and represents historic pathways for more than 8,000 kilometers. 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. These paths are today glorious hiking and cycling trails in the beautiful scenery - where the angler with his fishing line out is only disturbed by boaters greeting while passing. Several of the old carriage roads on the water has lost their significance as industrial transportation lines, but have been reopened with restored bridges and lock systems for the benefit of us who love to enjoy our holidays on rivers and canals.
