Holiday reviews from Port-sur-Saône
A holiday to recommend!
We spent a week living to the rhythm of the locks, meals at sunset on the deck of our boat and stops whenever we wanted. This boating holiday left us relaxed and recharged. We’d certainly recommend it to all those who dream of relaxing family holidays!µ
