Description of
the boating holiday

Hire a canal boat for a holiday on the Canal de Garonne

No previous experience is needed for a Nicols boating holiday. During this cruise you will navigate through the vineyards of Buzet before discovering the medieval bastide town of Damazan, then onto Le Mas d’Agenais and its typical Lot-et-Garonne style homes, before enjoying stunning views over the valley of Meilhan-sur-Garonne. 

Departure base

The Nicols base is located at the crossroads of the Canal de Garonne (also known as the Canal des Deux Mers), the Lot River and the River Baise. This means that from Buzet-sur-Baïse there are numerous cruising possibilities that will give you a flavour of typical villages in and around the Gers and Gascony region, as well sample the best fine dining and quality vineyards that are here in abundance.

Perfect holidays!
Our favourite parts of this relaxing holiday were the beauty of the surrounding landscapes, the charming little villages we encountered and the sharing of stories with fellow boaters we met on route. We had a perfect holiday.
