This book is as much a treasure to the boat owner as a glass of Pinot Noir to the discerning wine lover. It takes you through the canals of Burgundy, detailing places of interest which can be... More > visited from the canals. With advice on buses, cycle trips and walks. Rich in history, this area of France needs time to explore and without this book it would be easy to miss the history dating from Caesar's Gallic wars to Middle Ages' architecture and to modern times.

The town of Gien - 80% destroyed by the Germans in 1940, and by the Allies in 1944 - has been harmoniously restored using traditional brick patterning and chevrons. It is this sort of information which makes this book not only different from other canal guides but gives a unique tast of France - just a sip of the flavours of beautiful Burgundy.< Less
