Valance-sur-Baïse (Baïse)

Sailing down the Baïse, you wind your way through 65 km of lush and intimate countryside. From the river, discover fortified towns, gentle hills and flowery meadows, and do some gentle angling along the way. Towns you can visit include Vianne, Lavardac and Nérac, seat of the Albret family. Looking out from the Château of Henri IV, the quayside with its old workshops converted into restaurants makes for a marvellous view. The precious casks of Armagnac were shipped down to Bordeaux from the quays of Condom. See the Abbey of Flaran, a masterpiece of Cistercian art, before reaching the end of your cruise on the Baïse in Valence-sur-Baïse.
