– Welcome on –
There have been no boats plying the Cher for 80 years. The Gabare and the Ambacia are now reviving what is already a distant past and a river tradition steeped in history. Our boats cast off from Chisseaux in Touraine (2 kilometres away from Chenonceaux) and convey you along the romantic, winding river that skirts forested and vine-covered slopes, right underneath the arches and past the world’s largest and most sumptuous Renaissance mansion (built over a river) : Chenonceau.
Commentary : Château de Chenonceau with its four main figures – The Cher history and its dams – Fauna and Flora – Touraine and its vineyards.
