All the Nantes Brest Canal is very beautiful and easy to ride by bike, but near Josselin is specially beautiful because of the imponent silouette of the castle. I reccomend without any doubt to do some km up or down stream (it is almost flat),...More

Took a wander along this from St Sansom to Rohan, and again around Gouarec. It's absolutely lovely, well maintained and well-used enough that it's peaceful without feeling too isolated.

We have visited the canal regularly over the last 20 years, and on a couple of occasions hired bicycles in order to cycle along the canal. This is a most enjoyable experience, and other than hiring a boat, one of the best ways to see...More

We stayed just by here - it was absolutely gorgeous. Quiet, flat, full of nature and so picturesque. Our son cycled and we walked. Other people fished and others took canal boats for holidays. We had never been to Brittany before but we will return...More

We hired four bikes from Josselin at a very reasonable cost of 24 Euros for two hours. The bikes were well maintained. The tow path is wide and even, easy terrain for even young legs, and the scenery beautiful - even the canal locks are...More

We took a hotel barge (Libje) and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. This canal rivals the more famour Canal du Midi (whcih we enjoyed 2 years ag). this is actually prettier for most of the way, with prettier locks and towns en-route.

We used Nicholls for 2 weeks on the Canal du Midi. If ever we rented again, would probably go for Locaboat because their design is actually better suited to getting on and off and having a better deck plan. However... More
