On our way back to Holland we stopped 2 nights for one last cycling adventure in France - in the Champagne district near Troyes. We got a delightful little cabin on Lac D'Orient in Geraudo called Chalet au cœur de la nature. We have to admit this canal and the Velovoie des Lacs was a little anticlimactic after the fabulous canals of Burgundy, but the "chalet" was so perfect it more than made up for it. The Lac is a reservoir, so like all the reservoirs it was about 40 feet down. The canal is not a navigation canal, but just a water source for the Seine.
