“Living a day or a week on a historic monument like the Nivernais Canal is a timeless experience. That of one of the most beautiful canals of Europe built in the eighteenth century. His slowness is his secret. By bike, roller-skate, on foot or by boat we get resources with family or friends. Served by its lock keepers if you sail or greet them if you follow its towpath, between Loire and Seine you will be out of time. Burgundy is discovered from within by its villages, its heritage (abbeys, Romanesque churches, Gothic, ornate cave, castles, etc.) and nature that winds along the groves of Yonne, Nièvre and Morvan woods. You will embrace its medieval sites and its generous nature that enchants each taste bud in exotic feasts. The Canal is digital to keep a window on the World, the houseboat is ultra modern and the night sky is starry. Welcome to the Nivernais Canal! “
