Canoe Loisirs was recommended by our B&B "La Lanterne" who has a discount with them. Very well organized and friendly staff, they transport you to the start of the trip depending on how long you would like to paddle and they pick you up at the end location. It is well marked and easy to find. Very easy run as... More

This company were excellent and so friendly and reliable....highly recommended. I emailed them from the U.K. before we went as it was late October that we would be in the dordogne. They arranged a day and meeting time (via email) as we were the only ones canoeing that day......usually this is not necessary. The canoe trip was absolutely wonderful. We... More

We love to canoe, and read about this in a guidebook. We selected this canoe company because the hotel where we stayed in Sarlat had discount coupons. I realize there are other companies offering the same service, but we were very happy with the service we received with Canoes Loisirs. They were friendly, very organized and their equipment was in... More

Eight of us, mostly members of The Skiff Club, Teddington had a delightful trip over 5 days from Beaulieu to Beynac (65 miles), starting 6th October 2014, staying at hotels organised by Canoes Loisirs. The company is friendly and helpful (Tom, our point of contact, was as genial when you met him as his correspondence would suggest), booking was easy,... More

Paddling down the River Cher in a two-person canoe was one of the highlights of our trip. The river is wide and fast so the current pretty much carries you downstream without a lot of effort. The scenery along the way is absolutely gorgeous. We only wish we had taken the longer trip which finishes by Chateau Beynac.

These three seniors eventually figured out what to do and how to do it. The river was very calm and, thank goodness, there were very few canoes on the river. Otherwise, there may have been some collisions due to our lack of canoe skills. We were only supposed to go as far as Castlenaud. There were no flags or indications... More

can't add too much to this. Pretty easy to find; just drive through Vitrac, toward the "port" (not torwards Vitrac village). if you are coming from north of the Dordogne you'll cross the river on the bridge through Vitrac and it is immediately on the left. Tom was great, entire thing was flawless, everything was included, Paddles, life jackets, waterproof... More

Easy paddling on calm water. No experience required. Took us about 2.5 hours at a relaxed place. There are two places to go ashore. Nice way to see the two little towns. 18 euros per person.
