    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.
