Brittany in all its forms with a waterway cruise from Redon

Les Canalous allow you to choose your water­way cruise boat in line with your desires and expec­ta­tions. Before you pick it up and become famil­iar with how to steer it, you should give your­self time to wan­der the streets of Redon. This pic­turesque town has a host of attrac­tions to be dis­cov­ered, includ­ing the impos­ing abbey church of Saint Sauveur. The abbey build­ing now hous­es the local high school, but the abbey church will allow you to uncov­er some of the town’s mys­ter­ies. Don’t miss the many man­sions, includ­ing the impos­ing Hôtel de Riche­lieu. Redon is the gate­way to a wide range of pos­si­ble water­way routes, giv­ing you ample oppor­tu­ni­ty to put togeth­er your dream itin­er­ary. A water­way adven­ture to mar­vel at the mys­ter­ies of Merlin’s Brit­tany, or a cruise to taste the local gas­tro­nom­ic delights, with Far Bre­ton prune flan and tra­di­tion­al galettes at the top of the list. You’ll be spoilt for choice as you decide between the sooth­ing waters of the Vilaine or those of the Nantes-Brest canal. It’s total­ly up to you, of course, to choose where you’d like to moor your house­boat and stop off dur­ing your water­way cruise.

Unwind with the culture and folklore of Brittany aboard your houseboat

For a week or week­end, a one-way or return trip, as a cou­ple or fam­i­ly, you can put togeth­er your own water­way cruise from Redon to ensure your hol­i­day lives up to your expec­ta­tions. The tow­paths are a great choice for off-road cycling fans, who’ll be able to fol­low your house­boat from lock to lock. Every stop will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it the local area and get lost in the remote vil­lages. Extend your cruise to Rennes, where we advise you to take the time to dis­cov­er the eco­mu­se­um. You may, how­ev­er, pre­fer to head to one of Brittany’s oth­er his­toric cap­i­tals : Nantes.
