    Un très chouette moment

    Nous avons été très bien accueillies par Laura, qui s'est montrée très disponible et généreuse lors de notre arrivée. Dépaysement garanti, calme, l'impression d'être à la campagne à quelques minutes de Arles ... Petit déjeuner copieux. Un très chouette moment.

    Exceptional and lovely houseboat - stay was too short!

    For an exceptional welcome, spacious and cozy cabins, beautifully lit bridge in the evening, a hearty breakfast, a sense of well being thanks to the kindness of Laura and Mark, it is imperative to stop the Pescalune. And two nights is even better than one! For us it was too short! It's the only thing we regret! A true philosophy of guest rooms. Perfect.

    Unique and interesting houseboat in Paris


    Laura's boat is so unique and interesting. It is such a cool experience. She is so nice, and she went way out of her way to make us feel at home. She made us an amazing breakfast, and we slept like rocks!

    incredible night!

    We had an incredible one night stay here on the Péniche! It was a cold and rainy day, and we feared that it might be too cold sleeping on a house boat. Upon arriving the atmosphere was warm and inviting, there was a fire cranking downstairs, and we shared a drink and stories with our host. Overall a highly recommended experience.

    Very nice stay on a very nice houseboat

    We received a great welcome from Laura and her companion! They love to entertain and are really nice, put at ease. Our stay on their houseboat was very nice. In our booth, we were like in a cocoon: cozy, tastefully decorated .. Hearty dej 'We unreservedly recommend their address and return with pleasure!

    Cozy, simple, amazing.

    Laura and Mark are very nice hosts that we highly recommend. They welcomed us with great simplicity and kindness aboard their simple and charming houseboat. The warm welcome begins with an appetizer, our guests make themselves available to meet our needs or questions. The room is nice, very clean, the sink area shower is in the room and includes everything needed including slippers to match the colors of the room! The place is very quiet and it is a great pleasure to wake up in the morning and see the reflections of the water and sunlight through the window. The barge is moored 5 minutes drive from the city center. Mandatory car. Icing on the cake: the breakfast! I will not say more, just go!
