Go with the flow

There are a thousand and one ways to enjoy the water… Naturally, climbing aboard a sight-seeing boat for a cruise or travelling dowstream in a canoe are the most widespread in the Loire Valley, but what about a really on-trend activity, such as Stand-up Paddle, or something more timeless, like a traditional boat or a pedalo…

You see them practically every time you stroll along the river bank or the coastline, but you’ve never dared have a go… Well now you too can try Stand-Up Paddle, in Sud Val de Loire.

Get yourself along to the Lac des 3 Provinces and the  Canoë Company. 

Equipment rental and practical session, just a few minutes from the medieval town of Saint-Aignan and the ZooParc de Beauval.

Boat trips

Perhaps you’d prefer something more classic, but by no means less prestigious. In Sud Val de Loire, a trip in a traditional boat or an electric boat will make you feel like royalty…

Climb aboard sail down the Cher, the Cosson or a canal, with cedars and laricio pines along the bank. It’s an unusual way to discover the chateaux de Chenonceau, Chambord and Cheverny 

A pedalo ride

What could be more fun that a pedalo ride after a picnic by the water’s edge with your family…

During a relaxing day in Montrichard, you can rent a pedalo and enjoy the a gentle trip on the Cher… and why not have a quick swim in the fresh water too!
