Experience a holiday with a difference! Find all the freedom you wished for! When you set off from the bridge and head to the sea, you are the Captain of your own boat. On arrival and completion of all formalities, the owner of the boat familiarises you with the functions of the boat. It is easy to go boating, and the German boat owner takes you out into the water to a small shared trial sail area, where he clarifies, patiently, the basic rules of navigation as well as the procedure to pass a boat through a lock and anchor it. After about half-day training, you are confident of controlling this floating hotel all by yourself in spite of not having either a licence or previous experience. The boat is on the Vilaine and in the canal between Nantes to Brest. In order to guarantee a safe and enjoyable holiday without any worries, the owner spends a lot of time with you until you are confident. He will ensure that you can steer the rudder on your own. The owner patiently clarifies all your queries about the ship and your cruise. He has a fairly good knowledge of restaurants, nearby attractions, as well as the towns and villages along the shores. He will happily advise an appropriate route to be taken. In this round trip cruise, which lasts for 36 hours, you pass through the lock 36 times. Join the Vilaine in the direction of Redon and then steer the boat towards the channel between Nantes and Brest. After arriving at Saint Laurent, you can check out an old manor house, which is adorned with the traditional furniture. The next place you come across is Malestroit, which is in a beautiful spot, thanks to the river trade. Old buildings made of granite, stand as a witness to an eventful history. We continue further on the most beautiful stretch of the whole trip. Admire the Chateau de Josselin, referred to by some as the most beautiful castle in the whole of Brittany. The rest, we let you to discover in an adventurous manner. The main cabin is equipped with a double bed, whereas the smaller cabin has two single beds. The fifth guest is accommodated in the lounge upstairs where seats can be transformed into a bed (sofa bed). From the living-cum-dining area, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the constantly changing surroundings. The stove in the kitchen is equipped with four gas burners. In addition, a stainless steel sink and a refrigerator are also provided. Exotic wood, marble and porcelain mirror in the bathroom reflect the ambiance of a big ship. Large sliding glass doors open onto the terrace on the stern of the boat, where you have elegant garden furniture and electric sun visor.
