Nivernais Morvan
Just like in your dream, at the gates of the National Park of the Morvan, the Nivernais canal, built at the end of the 18th century, is probably the most beautiful canal in France and it links the Loire basin to the Seine basin, across preserved nature. Full of history and tradition, this canal will tell you the story of the shipping of timber from the Morvan region to Paris.

South Nivernais - Val de Loire
Châtillon-en-Bazois, on the Nivernais Canal is located between the Nivernais and the Morvan areas. The Nivernais Canal runs along castles, rivers, through valleys, plains, hills and forests which give this country a natural dimension that makes it a place to see. Located at the meeting point of the Nivernais canal and of the Canal Latéral à la Loire, Decize is really at the junction of waterways. Romantic strolls, gastronomic stops and historic trips are looking forward to your visit while sailing up along the river to Nevers then the Sancerre vineyards.

Southern Burgundy
Digoin, a central point for canal boating, lies in the heart of the Charollais region and with its famous oxen, but it is also at the junction of 3 canals. To the south, on the Canal from Roanne to Digoin, also called “the quiet canal”, you will cruise right in the middle of the fields of the Brionnais region along the Loire river, an invitation to make random stops in the shade of trees.
