Houseboat owner


Friendly, pleasant, very sociable person, with a sense of human contact.

I love life, I love people, surprising encounters, differences, human relations.

I am interested in the culinary field as a whole.

The sea, the boats are my haven of peace.

Music is a passion; it reflects my freedom of expression and is the source of the best moments shared with my friends.

My dream? a world tour by boat

    really great Show original

    The place is really great, the barge is located at the foot of the ramparts of the city of Aigues Mortes, 5 minutes on foot. It is very pleasant to sleep on a houseboat with all the comforts. Being able to park the car nearby for free is very significant.

    The location was great with great views on the city walls. Inside was nice and comfy. Really lovely to have breakfast on top of the boat looking at Aigues Mortes!
