Return trip: Castelsarrasin via Buzet-sur-Baïse

Standing before a mediaeval abbey you almost hear Gregorian chants. Historic Bastide towns beckon you!
Reviews for the The Abbeys and Cloisters Cruise
The Cloisters & Abbey Cruise, which started in Castlesarrasin and returned there was outstanding! The villages along the way including Mossiac, Valenc, and Buzet, to name a few were wonderful! September proved to be an excellent time for the cruise. The weather initially was quiet warm and included one rain storm followed by magnificent sunny fall days. The cruise totally lived up to and exceeded our expectations! Great holiday!
Le Boat was excellent throughout the cruise including dealing with a few electrical issues with the Vision 4 boat.
Montauban to Condom and back. October 2011. The peace of it all and good weather.
The usual- Moissac-Agen Market and Nerac. Take a trip on the Baise, wonderful Kingfishers. Also saw the Nuclear Canal and the TGVs flashing past
A pleasant, peaceful cruise to Agen and back.
We overnighted twice in Moissac which was a charming small town with a stunning abbey and excellent restaurants. The mooring was extremely well run and sold good, inexpensive local wine. We also used the boat's bikes to cycle the 8kms to Auvillars, a charming hill town with historic buildings, lovely pilgrimage church and pleasant eateries.We also enjoyed our last night in Montaubon though the nearby bar was noisy.
Base crew had had busy morning (10 boats in) and hadn't had time to clean windows or deck.. Brakes on one of the bicycles did not operate - to point of danger!
Purchases? Cushions, etc, or commodities, e.g.pack? If former, see 'bicycles' in previous.
