My husband and I went to Sablé-sur-Sarthe in August 2012. We’d originally booked a Nicols 800, but when we got there, the team offered to show us their new 2 berth boat, the PRIMO, which had just arrived from the Nicol’s Yacht boatyard. As the difference in price wasn’t huge, we were tempted! So we set off on this brand-new little boat, and we were more than a little proud to be onboard! (especially my husband, who felt like a real captain!). As well as the boat which was fantastically well-equipped and very spacious and light for a small 2/4 berth boat, we really loved the route: time spent at the foot of Solesmes Abbey (sadly we arrived too late to hear the service famous for its Gregorian chant!) and Malicorne where we discovered the pottery factories… A great holiday if a bit too short and we’re definitely returning to Sablé but for longer next time!
Thanks to the whole team on site: Jean-François, Antoine, Raphaël and Emilie, so helpful and welcoming… we have excellent memories of our holiday and will see you soon!
