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, stop for a picnic along the river banks, 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.

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 Canal du Midi in Southern France near the Mediterranean. 

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. Several of these old carriage roads have lost their significance as industrial transportation lines, but have been reopened with restored bridges and lock systems for the benefit to those of us who love boating holidays.
