An amazing way to see Nantes
What we loved about our weekend boating holiday on the River Erdre was the freedom of being able to moor our canal boat in the heart of Nantes on the island of Versailles. For one night we were alone on our small island, with its Japanese garden, in the centre of the capital of the Dukes of Brittany. A one-of-a-kind experience!
