It's often said that the gentle pace of a boating holiday is the perfect antidote to the frenetic rhythm of modern day life. Take some time to unwind amongst the glorious waterways in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the South of France courtesy of the waterway experts at Le Boat.

Anyone can enjoy a boating holiday—no experience is necessary. River boats are easy to handle with a steering wheel like a car and simple forward and reverse gears. A pre-departure briefing and demonstration will get you on your way.
