Easter Monday, the holidays of 1 and 8 May (which fall on a Thursday this year), Ascension Thursday, Whitsun… all perfect opportunities to try out a boating holiday.
A long weekend with a bank holiday tagged on is an ideal opportunity to discover the pleasures of barge holidays. Whether you set off with your partner, your family or a group of friends, you'll have a holiday with a difference, reasonably priced and completely flexible. Locaboat Holidays has designed special deals for long weekends that allow you to set off for between two and five days from any of its bases in France. The long weekends in May can be frustrating: you feel like setting off somewhere, but where? Everywhere is full, everything's too expensive. We want to provide a peaceful break that has everything you need but doesn't break the bank and is fairly close to home. Have you ever been to Picardy, Brittany, Burgundy, Alsace or the Canal du Midi? All these regions offer beautiful and unexpected landscapes, and canal holidays allow you to discover a different side of them. On your bike or on foot along the towpaths, steering your way through the locks, gliding past picturesque villages in the depths of stunning landscapes, vineyards, fields of lavender or mountains... You could stroll through medieval towns or UNESCO World Heritage sites. One thing's for sure: you will find peace and quiet, relaxation and a different kind of holiday!
