Once upon a time… Les Canalous
Les Canalous is the story of an idea that has already come a long way in 35 years…

In 1982, René Carignant and his son Claude had the idea of introducing an original alternative to traditional tourism : allowing people to discover Charolais – Brionnais from a new and unusual perspective, navigating the canal aboard a houseboat… A crazy project or a glimpse of the future ? Arguably a bit of both…

Now, season after season, Les Canalous are attracting more and more fans seeking a different kind of holiday experience : couples, families, but also groups of friends and associations setting off for an adventure on the canals… Perhaps this idea wasn’t so crazy after all… Les Canalous are getting bigger. Having first started in Burgundy and Franche-Comté, they then established themselves in the South of France, Camargue, but also Mayenne, Alsace and, more recently, Charente, Aquitaine and Lot..

Eager to provide an ideal holiday for everyone, Les Canalous have also been developing their fleet : from the smallest to the largest boats and the simplest to the most comfortable of set-ups… there is now a wide and varied choice for anyone who wants to sample the simple joys of waterway tourism. Over the years, Les Canalous have become a big family and a hotbed of new ideas and innovative projects. This 35th anniversary is symbolic, reminding us that any little idea can evolve into a great story. It is, above all, a stepping stone in an ongoing progression – there’s no doubt that Les Canalous will have many surprises in store for you over the coming years…
