ALONG HISTORIC CANALS & THE ROYAL RIVER

A cottage with authentic environment and close to the nature.

AN OLD LOCK HOUSE

 

Built to house the guard who watched over the fabulous construction site of the Canal Bridge in Briare -- an essential element of the French river heritage built by Gustave Eiffel between 1890 and 1896 -- which spans the last wild river in Europe

Renovated in stage accommodation 2 years ago, it is today a complete cottage that can accommodate up to 15 people.
Open from the cellar to the attic, take possession of this lock house for a green setting at the edge of the water. 

COMFORT & CONVIVIALITY

 

It is the asset of a lock house that has kept its soul by modernizing itself with simplicity and in the respect of the tradition of reception.

With its 5 independent rooms, its games cellar in "club house" mode and its environment between Loire & canals ... The lock house is all big!

WHERE ARE WE ?

 

The Canal Bridge Lodge is located in Val-de-Loire, on the banks of the royal river, on the border of Burgundy, Berry and Orléanais. 
In the heart of the small town of Briare, the SNCF train station (12 minutes walk) connects Paris-Bercy in 1h45. Located 1h30 from Paris and only 1 hour from Fontainebleau, Auxerre, Nevers, Bourges and Orléans, our lodge is the ideal central point to gather with family or friends.
