A brilliant boating holiday weekend
Our multi-generation crew had a fantastic time on our weekend away on a canal boat. There was something for everyone – from the fun of the port at Guenrouët for the youngest to the visit to the Cidrerie and the Museum of the Batellerie de Redon for the older family members.
