    We have used canoe companies for years in the Dordogne but most are getting swallowed up by big companies. Not Canoe Family, a very well run independent business right vin the centre of one of my favourite spots, St Leon Sur Vezere. They couldn’t be more helpful, polite and helped us out with our poor French too. We did the 13km journey, which was just about right for a gentle trip with a picnic stop and relax, taking about 4 hours. They took us to the start in the minibus and were there to collect us in about 5 mins following our phone call for collection. Would definitely use again!

    Great site and views for nature and kayaking. The kayak company gives a floatable and waterproof “box” which can be placed on the kayak on which you can put your food and precious objects. Halfway from Saint Leon Sur Vezere to Roc Saint Christophe there is a sort of “mini island” in the middle of the river where people can make a stop and have lunch. There is no time limit for the rental of canoe or kayak. I definitely recommend this company.

    Zero system in place to pick up people from end location. You can stand where bus stops, but somehow gent’s will skip you and pick up other people. Good luck standing and waiting for your luck. No order of pick up, no info.
