Cruising to Auxerre

The first weekend of the 2017 season and we cruise downstream on the Canal du Nivernais in Burgundy, France heading towards the beautiful city of Auxerre, capital of the Yonne.

We’re on board the  “charter boat Randle”  and  following the  “hotel-barge Luicole” in a tandem cruise.

This is Chablis and Irancy wine country, the river and canal meander below the hills and vineyards, through picturesque villages such as Mailly-le-Chateau .
