In Aquitaine, you can take a river cruise on the Garonne, the Dordogne and the Gironde estuary.
Further inland, the Canal de Garonne, Baise, Lot, Dordogne or Dronne also promise you magic moments with family, on the water, aboard houseboats of which you will be the captain.

The river package


Tried and tested : « An incredible getaway »

« I just love this cruise on the Garonne, visiting vineyards along the way ». Robert Sellex, BBC cameraman, is plainly delighted. He took advantage of a few days at a loose end to take a break in Bordeaux with friends. It was only a 90-minute flight from Liverpool.

On the agenda: a visit to Saint-Emilion followed by a Médoc wine-tasters cruise with « Bordeaux River Cruise ». « It makes for a complete break, a great getaway. We started by exploring Bordeaux and the Gironde islands down the river. We've been tasting some excellent wines. We've seen some lovely châteaux from the boat: Beychevelle, Latour, Pichon-Longueville and so on. Our guide has clued us up on the history of Bordeaux, vineyards and wine. We had a magnificent, restful stopover on the island of Patiras, where we chilled out and climbed the lighthouse. We could see the Citadelle de Blaye, the docks and the church in Pauillac. We wound up with a visit to a wine-growing château, the vat-house and barrel storehouse, and learning to taste wine! It was a great day out! » enthused this 50-something Brit. His friends all agreed.
