Testimonials

It was a very fun trip but the time was too short to do it in a relaxed way. One of the best trips of our life !! So good that next summer we plan to repeat it with some friends. The boat is Nicols DUO. If there was something to change, it would be the quality of the bicycles, as they are very basic and the slopes are difficult to climb. The wonderful landscapes!

The trip was wonderful, it is the 4th time we have come but this year was when we most wanted to disconnect from the hard year. The attention of Rocío and the staff of the exceptional base, fast, efficient and always attentive to any questions that may have arisen. To highlight the sound of the birds and the tranquility during navigation.

Base: Le Mas d´Agenais. Ship: Horizon 1. Trip made on 09/13/2020. 7 days.
It has been an excellent experience. From the first contact with Danfluvial, communication was very fluid and useful. Everything was well organized on arrival and the sailing was a lot of fun and trouble-free in the locks. The only drawback I see on this trip is that the first day you don't have time to go sailing because the boat is late. The rest of the days we were able to make the most of them and enjoy the area that pleasantly surprised us.
