Hire a canal boat for a break on the beautiful River Baïse and cruise between historic bastide towns and charming cities such as Vianne, Lavardac, Barbaste and Nérac.
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.
Buzet: Wine tasting at the Buzet Wine Cooperative
Vianne: Suspension bridge, 12th-century Romanesque church
Lavardac: Historic mill with 4 towers in Barbaste, Roman bridge
Nérac: Old town, Henry IV castle museum, Scenic railway
After cruising as far as Nérac on the River Baïse it is time to think about the return leg of your journey. Look out again for the favourite places you found so far, or maybe stop off at some new ones as you cruise back to the starting base at Buzet-sur-Baïse.
