Full description
Embark on a 50-minute cruise to admire Chenonceau Castle from a different perspective. A live commentary on board will be provided to allow you to discover the history of the Castle, often described as the "Ladies Chateau". You will also get to know about the Cher's history, its fauna, flora, and vineyards.

There have been no boats plying the Cher for 80 years. The Gabare and the Ambacia are now reviving what is already a distant past and a river tradition steeped in history.

The boats cast off from Chisseaux in Touraine (2 km from Chenonceaux) and take you along the romantic, winding river that skirts forested and vine-covered slopes, right underneath the arches, and passed the world's largest and most sumptuous Renaissance mansion (built over a river): Chenonceau.
