Never thought the countryside was so luxuriant and calm. There is a real way of life along the Erdre river. The cruise, with commentary lasts 1.5 hours. A must.

We were group of 40, 8 per table, the food was a set menu, but the service was excellent, the food (and drink) flowed smoothly, nothing was too much trouble, some of our party did not like the starter so the quickly changed it, well recommended. Well done to the two waitresses they were superb.

A few hours of leisure cruising along one of the most beautiful of French rivers - and right from the edge of the city. A tram takes you directly opposite the embarkation point, where the company maintains a modern terminal. The landscape as well as the sights, including a few great housing estates, are superb. It helps if you know... More

The cruise is nice, the look of the properties and the nature surrounding the Erdre river is great, but the atraction for a tourist is not complete if you can't understand the information. The speech of the host is only in french and she doesn't speak any other language, so you miss a great part of the trip. It may... More
