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.
