TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Henri IV Nerac
Travel Blogs from Nerac
... UK from Bergerac. Last year on the Lot, we played leap frog with a large French barge called Kevin. Kevin with a ‘C’ we called it– a family joke about an unfortunate boyfriend and I will leave you to work it out! It’s a huge boat, always taking up the whole of any pontoon and until this year we didn’t realise that it was a commercial business, taking passengers up and down the river. We were having a doze when there was a knock on the door ...
My blogs are a bit like buses; none for weeks and then two at once!
After the hard work of the Tour week and the mad de-commissioning of the chalet for rentals, we both looked forward to our short break on the boat. After stopping for a pizza at Vianne, we arrived to find two other boats tied alongside while their owners were away with the regular nosy parkers here watering the plants.

We enjoyed the shade of the canal this morning by the huge trees and trundled along ...
... to watch a bateaux go through the lock system which is so simple, had a pinic stop and rest as after all the wine etc last night and the extra kms today I was feeling it in my neck muscle.
Where we are tonight is with a Scottish couple who have such a lovely refuge, separate lounge etc, pool. Our dinner was superb, starters, Canard, beans and pomme de terre, home made apricot pie, wine and brandy. the latter not so good to bike 70km today.
