Sample seafood in Brittany
Home of the series of Bergerac, guests can admire Celtic land laced in canalised rivers studded with towering castles seemingly at every turn in Brittany. And being not far from the North Atlantic coast, seafood at takeaway cafés is in order. Venture to Dinan for the museums, historic sites and fine restaurants. Cruising north to Dinan puts guests on the canal and cruising south on the Vilaine takes travellers all the way to the sea at the commercial port of La Roche-Bernard. The Vilaine is a total of 218 kilometres (135 miles) and it’s delightful. A seven-night self-catered stay on a Magnifique, which sleeps up to 10 people, starting and ending in Messac, departing 12 April 2023, is priced from £2,129 / £213 pp (was £2,839 / £284 pp saving 25%).

Re-discover the Thames
A self-drive Thames cruise allows holidaymakers to explore the western section of the river. Here, moorings are easy to find and the distance between locks is greater than at the river’s eastern end, which means more cruising. Stop off at Henley-on-Thames, the home of British rowing, then head to historic Windsor for a tour of the Castle, before mooring up at Hampton Court. A seven-night self-catered cruise on the River Thames, departing on 3 June 2023, starting and finishing at Le Boat’s base at Benson, on board a Caprice sleeping up to six, is priced from £2,129 / £355 pp (was £2,839 / £473 pp saving 25%).
