La Suze sur Sarthe : gateway to a cruise from the Mayenne to the Oudon

Come and see us in the Sarthe départe­ment for an ini­ti­a­tion into steer­ing your licence-free boat. The town’s attrac­tions will be a pleas­ant sur­prise as your hol­i­days begin even before embark­ing on your rental boat. Stroll down the bustling streets of La Suze sur Sarthe towards the remain­ing ruins of the old cas­tle, or the more recent 17th cen­tu­ry Château de la Fuye, which is also well worth a look. Be sure to seek out the ele­gant Eglise Saint Julien de Brioude, as well as Chapelle Notre Dame des Bois, before tak­ing con­trol of your boat. Your riv­er cruise will thus get off to the best pos­si­ble start, espe­cial­ly giv­en the region’s beau­ti­ful­ly mild cli­mate – per­fect for relax­ing on the water­ways !

A waterway cruise – time to unwind and discover a region’s treasures

Take things at a sooth­ing pace, choos­ing your route with access to a net­work of more than 300 kilo­me­tres of water­ways. Dis­cov­er the wild Mayenne or nav­i­gate the Oudon or Sarthe for a week or week­end, roundtrip or one-way cruise. With numer­ous bases in the region, such as Daon and Che­nil­lé Changé, a water­way cruise gives you com­plete free­dom to put togeth­er your own tai­lor-made itin­er­ary for an unfor­get­table hol­i­day.

Going through the many locks en route will be one of the high­lights of your house­boat trip. Each one is unique, and your whole crew will enjoy help­ing to manoeu­vre the boat or exchang­ing a few words with the lock keep­er. Fish­ing, swim­ming, water sports and off-road cycling will bright­en up the days spent on your licence-free boat. You can also choose to head for the region’s most emblem­at­ic sites, for exam­ple by nav­i­gat­ing to the foot of Château de Laval or moor­ing up near the city of Le Mans or Angers.
