Rather than simply navigating them, experience mesmerising journeys on gorgeous French rivers on board Bolette. The Gironde and Garonne rivers, flanked by picturesque countryside scenery, are your beautiful route to Bassens – gateway to Bordeaux – and provide plenty of memorable sights. In between these scenic sailings, time ashore in ‘Pearl D'Aquitaine’ allows for discovery of the Bordeaux’s rich history and wine heritage, at sites such as Cathédrale Saint-André, the Grand Théâtre and the Cité du Vin wine museum. You could visit a small family run vineyard nearby, to learn about producing legendary local tipples and taste them at source, too.[ReadMoreMob]

On the beautiful Brittany coast, fascinating St Malo awaits. Take a day to explore the Old Town, encased by imposing granite walls, or enjoy some relaxation at the beach; or perhaps tour to the dramatic island of Mont St Michel and its iconic, fairytale-esque spired abbey. Elsewhere, your summertime escape also includes a rare visit to Belle Ile, Brittany’s ‘beautiful isle’ of wild coastline, pretty towns and glorious beaches, while Bolette also takes you to Normandy and the historic city of Cherbourg, where the Basilica of the Holy Trinity, the Musée des beaux-arts Thomas Henry and Jardin Botanique de la Roche Fauconnière are among the highlights.
