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.
