Great fun, we arrived early and we turned out to be the only ones on the whole river that morning. This allowed us to give the controls to our children without worrying too much of other users. An 1 1/2 disappeared all too quickly and...More

Easy to book on-line (recommended). When we arrived we were met by cheerful people who kindly offered to explain the river regulations/route in English as my French wasn't quite up to it. A lovely, leisurely route up river on a 5 seater electric boat. Great...More
