We’re off to Europe next week. Whilst most of our itinerary is now full, we’ve got a few free days in France later in the month.
One suggestion is that we do a drive-your-own boat through some French rivers. I’ve never done anything like this before *, but it certainly sounds appealing. Does anyone here have any experience in this sort of holiday? And any boat companies to recommend?
We’re going to be based at Versailles, near Paris, but can take a train from there to wherever the best place to pick up a boat would be. Maybe Burgundy or the Loire? (Sadly, despite wargaming with French armies for SYW and Napoleonics, I must admit my geographical knowledge of the country is minimal!)
* Other than having a go at the wheel of a working boat on the River Seine during our honeymoon back in the 80s – that’s my new bride acting as deck-hand in the photo at the top of this article.
