Canal du Nivernais

The life and times of the Canal

The original reason for building the canal was to float wood from towards Paris via Clamecy. It was a very important axis of communication between the Loire and l’Yonne (which in turn leads to the Seine river)

Today it has been appropriated by pleasure boats and houseboats and is considered to be one of the most beautiful canals in Europe.

Why not rent a boat and cruise along to Châtel-Censoir : there is nothing quite like slowing right down to unwind and chill out during your holiday!
