If you are looking to experience a quieter way of life, consider cruising through the Nivernais Loire region. The charming Canal du Nivernais, reputed to be one of the prettiest in France, and its surrounding network of equally pretty waterways, the Canal de Bourgogne and the River Yonne, give access to some of the most varied cruising areas of France. Take the Canal du Nivernais south from Joigny and Migennes through wooded hills to the rich plains of the Loire Valley. Here you may spot the famous white Charolais cattle grazing in the meadows. Discover the old barge town of Marseilles-les- Aubigny. Try Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese, a local speciality. Stop at the town of Nevers, formerly a Roman town and currently a centre for fine porcelain. You won’t be disappointed by this journey through the heart of France.
