Travelling with Locaboat gives you a genuine travel experience. The keywords are closeness, discovery and independence. When you hire your boat, you are the captain, the one in charge of your holiday.
Opt for the closeness of a family holiday or traveling with a group of friends or your partner and explore unspoilt countryside. You will also discover regions that differ in their natural surroundings, history, vineyards and their local population.

A holiday with Locaboat is a different way to get to know an area as you go with the flow. Your life aboard will be friendly and fun. If you hire bikes, you can set off in search of historic or architectural sites. We will help you to design a route that suits you to find what you want in terms of food and wine, urban or cultural visits, historical interest, nature and swimming.

Enjoy your holidays to the full by stepping on board one of our Pénichette® barges and exploring our finest destinations.
