Base at St Martin-sur-Oust: Canal de Brest, Vilaine and Erdres rivers

St Martin-sour-Oust is your gateway to the legends of Merlin the wizard and the fairy Viviane.
You'll pass the Isle of Magpies, perfect setting for a fable.
Next Gacilly with its mossy lanes and eel-filled reed beds so beautiful in the morning light, then on to Josselin where the castle's mighty turrets are reflected in the canal.
Pause too at Malestroit to admire its half-timbered houses.
The Canal de Nantes a Brest is definitely amongst the very top cruises.
The other cruise, to Dinan and Lyvet, is lightly locked on the Vilaine as far as historic Rennes.
Then, on the Canal d'Ille et Rance, the flight of 11 locks at Hede takes you across the watershed between the Atlantic and the English Channel and down to spectacularly sited Dinan.
