Team France Fluviale: The Gardner-Roberts and Adams families


BOURGOGNE – CANAL DU MIDI

France Afloat is a family business which has been specialising in chartering luxury yachts on the French waterways since 1993.

Although originally from the UK, Mike and Lesley Gardner-Roberts and Steve and Zoe Adams have been living “on” the French canals for over 20 years. They therefore have an enormous wealth of experience and know the French waterways perhaps better than anyone else. France Afloat has selected the best French waterways for you. In Burgundy, the company has bases on the Canal du Nivernais (Vermenton and Auxerre), on the Canal de Bourgogne (St. Florentin) and on the Canal du Midi (Languedoc-Roussillon) in Capestang and Bram.

DISCOVER TWO OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL REGIONS IN FRANCE FROM THE DECK OF YOUR LINSSEN

Vermenton is the ideal starting point from which to explore the charm of the Nivernais Canal. The stunning countryside along the river Yonne surrounds the canal with pretty villages, impressive castles and ancient churches as it rises slowly to the Morvan National Park. There is no lack of opportunity to discover local specialities, always accompanied of course by a glass of the regional wine, which justifies its reputation at any time.

The Canal du Midi, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, extends from Toulouse in the West into the Camargue and connects the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. The canal takes you past mediaeval towns and villages through France’s most fertile wine region – Languedoc Roussillon.

We give you a warm welcome!
