Sail through the famous Briare aqueduct before visiting the charming medieval town of Montargis - known as the 'Venice of the Gatinais' for its numerous canals and bridges. Buy tasty pralines from the original shop that existed in the time of Louis XIII. Saffron, the world's most expensive spice, is grown in the surrounding areas.

The charming Canal du Nivernais, one of the most beautiful in France, is between Auxerre and Decize.

Your pleasant cruise along the peaceful waterway will bring you beautiful scenery and pretty villages. It is easy to imagine how this peaceful landscape inspired the Impressionists.

Our bases at Migennes, Châtel Censoir, Tannay and Decize provide perfect starting points for your cruise, which is also possible on the Yonne River and the Canal de Bourgogne.
