I intend taking a very leisurely trip down the French Canals in the next few years in early retirement and I'm looking for up to date books on the subject both fiction and factual. Most I've come across so far are very dated, some before the EU so can anyone recommend any from the last few years, please? Before anyone asks I haven't decided which route to take yet or even which starting point. Destination the Med.

Thanks in advance.

Search the Liveaboard forum. Plenty of material there. Couple of regular posters, Grehan and Michael Bryant have good websites.

Once you get going in you search you will be deluged with information.

"Download on the right orange column "Le tourisme fluvial en France"

There is an English version of the VNF website !
And don't miss the list of Chomages (Stoppages).

In addition to David jefferson, surely Hugh McNight's Cruising French Waterways is the bible?
Not forgetting relevant Navicartes (being updated as Fluviacartes) and modern competitiors like Du briel's Guides Fluvial.
