The canal du Nivernais
The Nivernais Canal in Western Burgundy follows the Yonne valley and is intertwined with the river Yonne itself. Constructed between 1784 and 1843 to transport firewood and produce to Paris. All the commercial traffic has now gone and the canal today is known for its tranquillity, beauty, historic towns & villages, and famous vineyards.
The River Yonne
The river Yonne flows north to the Seine at Montereau, where it is the greater of the two rivers. An important trade route for centuries transporting wine, timber, and stone to ever expanding Paris. Now it is a quiet, meandering, and picturesque river set within a valley of wooded hillsides, historic towns, and famous vineyards. Travel in the footsteps of impressionist artists Turner and Sisley along this beautiful river.
Travelling along tree lined canals and meandering rivers aboard your very own private riverboat is the perfect way to enjoy rural France. Our aim is to achieve a perfect balance; a delicious meal, a glass of fine wine, and an evening sunset enjoyed with friends and conversation, truly the l'art de vivre.
