Spend the night on the river Loire in a traditional wooden boat

Are you looking for something really offbeat and unusual? We’re excited to tell you about our latest project of which more news will follow when we have developed it.  Fancy sleeping on a boat on the river, moored in one of the prettiest riverside villages in the Loire valley?  Ideal for a romantic break, we’ll be putting together a little itinerary including 2 nights aboard this delightful cabane in Le Thoureil.


The view over the water from the bedroom.

The French owners live just a few kilometres down the road and in addition to delivering breakfast in the morning, they can organise a head massage and a reflexology session if you feel like being even more pampered.  Imagine waking up to a beautiful sunrise or sitting out on deck with a glass of Loire wine in hand as the sun goes down.

Stroll along the riverside.


Enjoy a day of Loire Wine Discovery, just a short stroll from the boat.

Stretch your legs and walk to le tasting room for a day here with us learning all about the wines of the Loire and then gently stroll back and enjoy dinner at the lovely Route du Sel restaurant, just a few metres from the boat.


Perfect for a romantic break.

Sounds just perfect doesn’t it?
