Holiday reviews from Sablé-sur-Sarthe
We will come back!
We had a wonderful weekend, finding many great restaurants with great prices all through the cruise. Sailing was easy - the lock keepers are very friendly and navigating the locks is very simple. The tops on route all had a water point and electricity so were very convenient. We will definitely come back!
