The perks of
a canal boat holiday

Cruise leisurely past beautiful vineyards, natural wildlife and quaint historical towns along your journey. Moor alongside the picturesque canals and cycle into towns and villages on bicycles, sampling the local foods and wines and fetch your freshly-baked baguette and cold meats to enjoy back on the boat.
