Not many in late middle age realise their dream of living on a canal boat and exploring the waterways of France. Even fewer anticipate the problems that might confront them on their adventure into 'the unknown'. Valerie and Geoffrey buy their boat which they christen "de Villehardouin" and set off on the Canal du Midi, drawing and writing about their journey as they meander along the two hundred year old canal. They revel in the slow pace as they enter a world of welcoming ports, canalside markets, ancient sites and chateaux, delicate wildflowers and, in the Camargue, medieval jousting and pink flamingos. The various regional cuisines introduce them to gastronomic delights and memorable wines. Tackling the mighty Rhône River with its awesome deep locks in their small boat presents a challenge. Valerie and Geoffrey accept this with their usual humour. Once the Rhône is conquered, they find time to enjoy the ever-changing scenery of the canals as the dream unfolds.

Through Burgundy By Boat A Leisurely Guide For Sightseers

This book is as much a treasure to the boat owner as a glass of Pinot Noir to the discerning wine lover. It takes you through the canals of Burgundy, detailing places of interest which can be visited from the canals. With advice on buses, cycle trips and walks. Rich in history, this area of France needs time to explore and without this book it would be easy to miss the history dating from Caesar's Gallic wars to Middle Ages' architecture and to modern times. For example the gates on the staircase of locks on the Canal du Nivernais are all different because of destruction in WWII by the Resistance to prevent the German Army from using it as a supply line. The town of Gien - 80% destroyed by the Germans in 1940, and by the Allies in 1944 - has been harmoniously restored using traditional brick patterning and chevrons. It is this sort of information which makes this book not only different from other canal guides but gives a unique tast of France - just a sip of the flavours of beautiful Burgundy.
