Houseboat description

The cozy "décor bohème" and "style boudoir à la française", reflect the spirit of your host, the love of travel and freedom. The inside feels rich with warm colors, vintage leather furnishings and natural wood.

 

You will much appreciate to stay in your houseboat in the 'Old Center' of Amsterdam but in the residential part : 'East side'.

 

You will much appreciate to stay in your canal which was peaceful and green unlike the more touristy waterways, which are too noisy and prone to all sorts of traffic (cars, buses/boats traffic).

 

It is the Raamgracht canal : No traffic with narrow/oneway street and canal, with lush greenery shading over all the boats. Only traffic with animal life in aquatic environment with swans, ducks, coots, herons, gulls and many other surprises cruising around your houseboat!

 

The hull (Praam type) and boat were built during 'La Belle Epoque' in 1898 which makes one of oldest boats of Amsterdam. The last complete renovation was in 2012 to the best standards but respecting its historic charm.

 

A praam is a type of shallow-draught flat-bottomed ship, was particularly developed in the Netherlands in the 17th Century, reaching about 20 m in length. These large praams could be operated with oars but also to sail, with a pair of lateral fins. Their shallow draft (no more than two feet) allowed them to move goods (unshipped from the Harbour) in all canals of Amsterdam.

 

Why Live In A houseboat ? : I understood that a flat is too noisy, as the walls are too thin with buildings on pilotis in Amsterdam. A barge is too steep-sided.
