France’s most beautiful Canal

The canal du Nivernais in Burgundy is often described as France’s most beautiful canal and this reputation is richly deserved. Following the course of the River Yonne, it passes through stunning scenery punctuated by ancient villages and vinyards. The Nivernias benefits from this anonymity by keeping it calm throughout the year, it is the gateway to the “real” France of quite villages, attractive vistas, fine wines and gastronomic treats. Our Vermenton base in Burgundy is ideally placed to explore the Nivernais.
