Reviews for the The Sancerre Short Break
We thoroughly enjoyed our week despite not getting the one-way cruise we had booked. Briare was a beautiful town, great walks with lots to see. Lovely local market and good restaurants. Spectacular M.Eifel aquaduct over the Loire - not to be missed.
Very pretty canal with lovely stopping points along the way. We went in Sept so very quiet and peaceful. No problem stopping or finding places to eat and shop. Montargis was our turning point where we had the only wet day/night. We played a lot of petanque along the way and we took a couple of bikes that gave a different perspective as well as some exercise.
We spent a week cruising on the canal from Chatillon sur Loire in July 2013. Sancerre was beautiful and the canal south of there much prettier than the part near Chatillon. Don't miss the entrance to Briare which you can do on a day trip north of Chatillon. We did this on our way back.
