A romantic holiday on the waterways: enjoy a well-deserved couples cruise, going with the flow aboard your Pénichette® equipped with all mod cons.


Close to the water, close to your heart…

Exploring lakes, rivers and canals as a couple is the ideal way to add some new memories to your photo album. Whether you’re looking to rekindle your relationship or just enjoy some time away together, here are three reasons why boating holidays are the perfect choice. Are you struggling to find the right restaurant for a romantic dinner? Not even the finest establishments can rival a waterside picnic in the open air, or a sunset cocktail at the water’s edge. Are you tired of renting the same types of holiday homes every year? Our boats provide all the comforts of an apartment with the added magic of the waves rocking you to sleep: the perfect backdrop for couples holidays. Do you want a break from the daily grind, where it seems you never have a minute to spare? There are countless waterways and routes to choose from, opening up a whole new world of boating holidays: as skipper, you decide where you’re going every day… and for the whole of your holiday!

Each route has its own attractions, but some are especially suited to couples holidays. Our top 5 ‘romantic specials’.


Take a couples cruise on a Pénichette® and fall in love all over again

More and more people are choosing boating holidays, including couples. Wherever you go, from the picturesque Nantes-Brest canal to the Venice Lagoon – the last word in romance – you’ll find the perfect backdrop for passion, and we’ve even heard of some passionate proposals being made! If you visit the immense lakes around Müritz, the journey itself will be on a grand scale.

The villages on the Canal du Midi are utterly charming, though of course they can’t compete with the charms of your other half, as you enjoy a romantic drink overlooking the canal. Maybe you’re looking for a complete break from daily life? A couples cruise from Dompierre is just what you need – drifting away from it all to the sound of birdsong and the wind in the trees. Wherever you are, a couples break on a self-drive boat will have you singing along to a chorus that makes perfect sense, “Where you go, I’ll go”…
