Editorial Reviews

Living Aboard
I recommend this fine book to anyone who has ever considered a voyage to Europe.
The Ensign
One of my retirement goals is to cruise the canals of France in a rented barge. When I go to France, I will take the latest copy of this guidebook, which provides details about restaurants, museums, shops, historic sights and scenic attractions along the waterways.
Midwest Book Review
Packed with detail cover to cover, Cruising French Waterways spares no effort to explore the depth and beauty of the scenic French countryside.
Latitudes & Attitudes
One of the most complete guides to cover the approximate 5000 miles of waterways. ...plenty of maps and guides for each individual area, as well as the maximum dimensions for vessels. It gives an in-depth look at the bankside facilities, including where you will find good moorings and repair yards.

It will tell you where you can take on fuel and supplies, as well as suggest the better restaurants, points of interest and shops of all kinds... where to find museums and other sites of interest to boaters.

And what voyage on the French waterways would be complete without a guide to the wines and the areas within the wine regions?

In the center of the book you will find some great color photos taken along the various routes and just looking through them is enough to give anyone the itch to make the trip... this guide will tell you everything you need to know about the area.

Booknews
Winner of the Thomas Cook guide Book Award, the new edition of this volume (first published in 1984) is organized by region and covers the history and commercial activities, historical sites, chateaux, scenic attractions, local customs, landscape and, of course, the safety and conditions of the canals of the entire network of the inland waterways of France.
