Barge and Yacht Travel


Barge and Yacht Travel

Canal and river trips are popular in France, particularly along the picturesque waterways in Brittany, Burgundy, and the Midi. For further information, ask for a "Tourisme Fluvial" brochure at any French tourist office. It's also possible to rent a barge or crewed sailboat to travel around the coast of France, particularly along the Côte d'Azur.
