Easy to find and owner speaks English, which helped a lot. The trip down the river is pleasant and not too strenuous. Suitable for young children with supervision, but due to areas with high weed content in the water, definitely requires some effort to get...More

Great activity to do with kids and friends. A very relaxing paddle up a picturesque stream with clear water and lots of nature. Robert the owner is delightful. Always seems to be popular, and there is sometimes a short wait for a canoe which can...More

Our family loved this trip very pretty route, when we went it did not open until 1.30 in the afternoon so just check. The man who organises the canoes was so lovely and helpful. My arms did ache a little the next day :-) Great...More

We had a perfect morning, warm late September sunshine, edged with a chill that heralds the beginning of Autumn. Robert gave us comprehensive and clear instructions and directions. His English highlighted the poverty of my French. The lake gave way to waterways that ran past...More

Not far from Talmont, this is an excellent experience. You don't need to be a canoeist to take part in this one. Reasonably priced and you get very friendly and welcoming service. The trip down the river is amazing. Beautifully clear water where you can...More

Launch yourself in a small canoe and head up the beautifully shaded Chauvignac river, to the island at the end and back. If you're lucky, you will see an otter or two, and plenty of fish, along with empty stork nests (Cicogne) and an ancient...More

A lovely hour and a half spent cruising a fairly short route up stream from the port lock. Otters, fish and plenty of blackberries. Life jackets, paddles and boat all in. Children must be able to swim. Flat water and no currents so easy paddling...More

We really enjoyed this hour and a quarter canoe trip with our 7 yr old and 5 year old. Everyone was kitted out with a life jacket and an oar and then we paddled our way through reeds and through bluey green waters. We saw...More
