The navigation is slow and invites to dream. We must pass
by many locks and the time to cover these distances are totally different
than we're used to. In fact, on board of our barge, we need three
days and twenty eight locks to go from Briare to Montargis whereas
thirty minutes by car are enough! Real vacations!
cruises are available during the nice season, from April to October.
The exceptional situation of the Briare's
yachting port, in the
intersection of the old and the canal, allowed
me to organize for you three different cruises. However, I can considerate
any suggestions, your cruise with captain can be "a la carte".
to discover the Pont Canal and live the experience of two lock's
days and one night on board will show you two different
faces of the canal. The cross of Pont Canal and his industrial late
XIX century's face, followed by a rustic navigation until the Venon's
days and two nighs are necessary to discover the Pont Canal
, Venon's lock and the reservoir of La Gazonne.
We're out of time. It's the rhythm of lock's
opens and closes. Your ordinary life will stay on land during this
incursion in the past. The Briare's canal is not crowded with
tourists and there's no problems with traffic like at Bourgogne's and
Midi's canals.This unforgettable promenade "au fil de l'eau"
is plenty of magic and serenity.
and propositions can be changed by the weather conditions and above
all by the state of mind and desires of passengers. We're in vacations!
