From the mighty Loire to the ever-popular Dordogne, France is rich in attractive inland waterways. This week we’d like to hear about lesser-known river or canal experiences in the country – maybe you’ve cycled to a hidden riverside chateau, hiked to a small Rhône winery or kayaked through an amazing gorge.
Tell us why the place was so special, with prices and websites where relevant, and feel free to send a photo if you have one – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by travel expert Tom Hall, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 31 May at 9am BST
