The rivers and canals of France and Belgium are a very fine cruising area, providing some 8,500 kilometers of waterways.
They can be used as a way through to the Mediterranean but many now just enjoy the wide variety of inland cruising available.
Here are just a few of their attractions.
Calm waters - little need to worry about weather forecasts and gale warnings
Beautiful and varied scenery - rolling farmland, vineyards, forests, deep gorges
Fascinating little villages
Fine towns, where you can often moor near the centre more easily than you could park a car
In larger cities, easy access to theatres, concert halls and other places of cultural interest
Modest costs, even after licence fees and mooring charges
Incomparable food and drink
