Description of
the boating holiday

Your canal boat holiday in Brittany

Our longer two-week boating holiday itinerary means that you can discover the three waterways of the River Erdre, the Canal de Nantes à Brest and the River Vilaine meaning you get the full experience of everything Brittany!

Departure base

No previous boating experience is needed to hire a self-drive canal boat from the Nicols base at Sucé sur Erdre, which is located about 15km north of Nantes. This boating holiday itinerary to Rennes and then back to Sucé sur Erdre takes about 60 hours of cruising over the two weeks – meaning the perfect balance of the pleasures of navigation mixed with stop-offs at the many interesting places that surround the waterways.

A journey from Nantes to Rennes
This particular boating holiday in Brittany allowed us to discover the two ‘capitals’ of the region – Rennes on one side and Nantes on the other. We’ve had many a holiday with Nicols and whatever destination we’ve chosen it has always been a pleasure, with every cruise full of new surprises and discoveries.
