Reviews for the The Yonne Short Break
Migennes is an excellent base, with helpful and friendly staff, giving access to three cruising directions: down the Yonne, up the Yonne/canal lateral a la Garonne or up the canal de Bougogne. Most memorable experience: a 'once in a financial year' lunch at the three-Michelin starred restaurant with its own private quay in Joigny.
Over ten days we cruised up past Auxerre to Vincelles, then back down to Joigny, then up the Bourgogne to Brienon. Auxerre itself is well worth a visit but the public quays on the left bank are currently being rebuilt which meant that the paying capitainerie on the right bank was crammed full.
