Planning to take a boat trip down Little Venise in Eure et Loir? Embark onboard from the village of Bonneval and glide along the canals of Little Venise in the Beauce area. It’s such great way to spend some quiet time in this peaceful medieval town while enjoying its highlights, its hidden gems and local culinary delights.

Experience life afloat in Eure et Loir

Leave the gondolas for Venice and embark on a self-drive cruise through the waterways of the Beauce aboard an electric boat you can hire from the Capitainerie of Bonneval (the harbor master's office). A cruise on "the Little Venice of the Beauce" offers complete freedom and allows visitors to admire highlights from a different angle: bridges, footbridges and wash houses are dotted along the way. When the night falls, heritage buildings come back to life with illuminations during the summer show "Bonneval, lights along the water".

A gentle canoe ride down the river Loir

If you’ve got a taste for canoeing, exploring the rivers of Eure et Loir by canoe gets you closer to nature and allows you to experience our waterways from a totally new perspective. Whatever your level of paddling, you can rent canoes and kayaks at the Club of Bonneval and set off on an expedition on the wild river Loir with your friends or family! Don't expect a rafting-like descent but rather a gentle ride down in company of local ducks and moorhens. This bucolic canoeing trip through the pristine environment of the river makes for great memories that will last a lifetime!
