A pleasant cruise

The canal/river Doubs is beautiful, though the villages along the route (upstream from Dole) have limited facilities for cruising. The boat was excellent despite being nearly 20 years old. However, we were surprised and disappointed by Nicols policy of charging extra per hour of engine use. This should have been clear before booking. Overall it was a very enjoyable but expensive holiday. The staff at the Dole base were very helpful and friendly. Thanks.

What memories do you keep of your holidays?
The peaceful surroundings were just what we needed after a busy summer, however we would be reluctant to return due to lack of activites around the lake itself.
Staff were amazing throughout, very helpful and polite.
Boat was supplied with everything we needed for a self-catering break and spacious.
Have told family and friends about our trip and we are still talking fondly about it now.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.
