Chatillon sur Loire
Just south of Briare there is a very good slipway at Chatillon sur Loire, on the Canal Lateral a la Loire, where they also have very secure storage.
Contact is Natacha, who speaks English.
Costs: (According to Keith Waller in 2016)
Slipway is free
Storage is “you give us a little money”
There is plenty of room to manoeuvre at the top of the slipway but you are crossing an access road to the hire fleet and houses beyond, but was quite quiet when seen. This spot is within easy walking distance to view the Loire river and the original port and locks that allowed the crossing of the Loire river but only when the Loire was not in spate or dried out. These were bypassed when the aqueduct was built a few km north across to Briare.
