Reviews for the The Arts & Armagnac Long Break
This was our second charter with Le Boat and once again they did not disappoint. From the reservation process to check-in, our dealings with Le Boat were great. The base manager was very helpful before we arrived - there were no surprises. We would recommend Le Boat to others and will be chartering from them again.
We enjoyed this cruising region very much, especially the River Baise. Our trip was in June and we had plenty of rain but still had a wonderful time. I do wish the Le Boat folks had pointed out a few things in the cruising manual rather than expecting us to read it cover to cover. Knowing that we should lift the bumpers onto the deck while in the downstream locks on the Baise would have been helpful. It resulted in a minor but hysterical delay.
The Le Boat company was excellent to deal with. Correspondence was promptly answered and staff at the two bases were excellent. We did have a minor issue with no taxi being present to pick us up from the train station to our arrival base after having planned this in advance. When the base was contacted a staff person personally picked up luggage and some of our party.
Excellent choice of cruise.
A slow start with the AC not working on the journey so we lost some time. Le Boat gave us a discount at the end of it to make up for it. The person at Castlesarrasin was great
The boat was fantastic - the weather was fantastic - we'll never forget the crop irrigation system that was over the river that cooled us down!
The Baise River was lovely and Nerac very pretty I would avoid canals and stick to rivers
The boat provided was supposed to be new, it was obviously old, the deck leaked onto the bed in one of the cabins. Lebo at knew it had a leak and rented it to us anyway. They did not fix it and rented it the next week anyway.
The base personnel were helpful and knowledgeable
