Reviews for Port de Plaisance Vitry-le-Francois
VERY TIGHT entrance but worth the stop, 2016-08-08
Captain: , Washington DC (3034)

Intermarche, LeClerc, and a Brico are all 5-10 minutes walk distant, just in different directions. Inner port is incredibly tight, but once in there are more slips available than it appears from the outside. Very friendly captainerie. July 2016 prices were 6.50 euro for parking, plus optional 4 euro per day for electric and water.

An old planned town, 2015-10-30
Captain: , Middelfart (2852)

Many of the old French towns are designed to look great, and they do. This one has a square in the middle, and streets from the gates crossing there. Next to the square is the covered marked. Good shopping.

Tight entry, great stop, 2015-06-22
Captain: , Fort Collins, CO (492)

This is the northern end of the Champagne-Burgogne Canal. At lock 71 you will get your automatic lock clicker heading south or turn it in heading north. The marina is very tight going in , but quite doable. The marina capitain is very efficient and helpful. You are very close to downtown and the town square. Lots of small shops and an Orange store. Very scenic Church and buildings. Seems like a very nice town. Easy walk to Iintermarche which has 24 hour laundry machines. Slightly longer walk in the opposite direction to E. Leclerc (like a super Walmart). Also a Lidl and Aldi in walking distance. Good place to stock up heading south on Champagne-Burgogne Canal. Some reports of bicycle theft in the area, so keep them locked up.

Vitry-le-Francois, 2012-11-13
Captain: , St. Jean de Losne, France - home Guelph,ON, Canada (7946)

A very tight entrance and little space inside to back into short pontoons and wall. Larger vessel use tie alongside quays (no electricity at this time on quay on canal). Harbour Master very helpful and a very good town to reprovision in.
Intersting town to stroll around; large church with beautiful interior.
