Les Hortillonnages are a really nice and unusual place to visit. unfortunately it rained when we were there but that did not stop us. Lovely gardens, we. Chose to walk thought the gardens, you can take a canal ride.

The boatride through the canals is pleasant enough, but the guide we had was unfriendly and unhelpful and did not properly explain the origin of the Hortillonages not how they are used today. He spent most of the trip insinuating how generous some tourists aren giving him tips, etc. and snapped at one of our party when she asked a question about the local fauna and fauna. Don't think he knew too much about that sort of thing, which really interested us. Of course he tried for a tip not too subtly at the end of the visit - he did not get one!

A very relaxed way to spend an hour, silently slipping through the little canals with idiosyncratic dwellings perched on the tiny islands. You can even take your dog!

Lovely long relaxing boat trip through the ancient market gardens/gardens. The gardens date back to Roman times and the small canals through them are teeming with wild life. The gardens can't be approached by road and many of the owners have built quirky summer houses on their plot

If you enjoy plants, flowers, nature and unique social communities, the boat trip through the canals will enchant you and fill you with wonder.
