Fontenoy- le-Chateau is a small market town, divided by the River Coney, with bags of character. It used to be a large town during the Middle Ages, but has since shrunk. The atmosphere though has remained the same and walking around the town’s cobbled streets is a very pleasant experience indeed.
Monday to Saturday: 08:30 to 12:30, 14:00 to 18:00.
If you are going to be arriving at the base late, you will need to inform the base directly or the general sales office where you booked.
When you arrive at the base there will be a note on the reception door informing you where your boat is. The boat will be left open with the lights on for you to stay on board that night. The base staff will do the full briefing the following morning.
Your boat will be ready to depart for 16:00 - 17:30. We recommend that you arrive 60 minutes earlier for check-in and instructions.
If you have booked an Early Check-in Service, please arrive at the base ready to depart between 11am and 12pm or from 2pm.
Your boat should be returned and unoccupied by 9am on your last cruising day (or by midday if you have booked a Late Check-out).
