French Travel Connection - your French specialist, at your service paris fr

Whether you’re someone who likes to have every minute of your holiday planned, or more of a free spirit who likes to keep your options open, French Travel Connection can put together your French trip of a lifetime!


Travelling on the waterways of France is a great base for an amazing holiday and as your French specialist, we can put an itinerary together to complement whichever one of these experiences suits you best.


  • For those who like to know what they’re doing each day, why not consider a river cruise? Our boutique river cruises range in length from seven to 16 nights and visit some of the most beautiful and interesting regions of France. Your cruise includes meals, fine regional wines, onboard lectures, entertainment, daily excursions with English-speaking guides and more!
  • For independent travellers, hiring a self-drive canal boat is a great way to discover the charm and mystery of hidden France. You simply choose a region you’d like to explore and either follow one of our suggested itineraries, construct your own or just float along and stop wherever looks like a nice place to explore!
  • Crewed canal barges offer the best of both worlds - a crew consisting of a captain, housekeeper, chef and tour guide will take care of your every need. You can book a cabin on a barge with other travellers from around the world, or alternatively, charter the entire barge with friends or family, which also gives you the option to tailor the itinerary for your group.


A wonderfully relaxing way to see France! For those looking to book a crewed canal barge this month, we have a great range of specials available


Once you have made your choice, you can combine a great range of French experiences to make the ultimate Francophile’s holiday! Stay in Paris for a few days, see a show, take a tour of the best boulangeries and patisseries the city has to offer, head to the top of the Eiffel Tower and shop to your heart’s content. Then take a self-guided cycling tour through the breathtaking French countryside, learn French cooking techniques, join a guided bus tour, taste local wines in tucked away cellars and much, much more!


Don’t know how to get between all these fascinating adventures? We have that covered too, with a range of transport options including rail passes, car and campervan hire and transfers.
