Houseboat summary

The 'Droge Paulette' (literally translated the 'dry Paulette') is a cozy, self-driving eco-friendly houseboat in the beautiful, historic surroundings of West Flanders. It is perfect for people who get seasick easily, since the boat is not even in the water! Hence the name, the dry Paulette. Enjoy the gorgeous view of the Ieperlee canal, and explore the meadow around you!
