Le boat

Welcome to the widest selection of beautiful boating holidays in the UK and Europe.

Discovering the beauty of Europe’s stunning lakes, rivers, and canals and their surrounding villages and countryside from the unique perspective of your sundeck is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy quality time with family and friends. It really is the fast way to slow down, as we hope you’ll soon find out for yourself. Whether you’re looking for an affordable fun time for the family or a relaxing gastronomic break with friends, we promise to give you a wonderful holiday to remember. Choose from 9 destinations in France as well as Italy, Holland, Germany, Belgium, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Best of all – no experience necessary, no licence required!

Don’t worry if you have never been on a boating holiday before; our boats are so easy to handle that no previous experience is necessary. We give everyone a hands-on demonstration before they set off, as well as an in-depth briefing which covers everything from tying knots to how the oven works. We want you to set off feeling confident and relaxed, so you can enjoy this great holiday adventure.

Stopping whenever and for as long as you want, is all part of the fun of a boating holiday. From impromptu stops to visit ancient castles to an afternoon of fishing or simply pausing for a picnic beside the water. Against a backdrop of ever-changing scenery, you’ll soon discover there’s plenty to see and do, both on and off the water. Hire bikes to explore beyond the waterways. With flat towpaths alongside most of the canals, it’s an ideal way of keeping fit, having fun and collecting your morning baguette! At the end of the day, watch the sun set over reed beds, fields and vineyards. Moor under the stars, along the quayside or in a marina – the choice is yours.
