    Simply suberb!

    We had a lovely stay, amazing views in the morning by opening the curtains you see an army of ducks: super nice. Also the owner is very nice, just as the breakfast on the terrace on top of the barge. I strongly recommend this houseboat to get away from it all!

    Great experience

    We had a wonderful experience during our stay on this houseboat: very good reception, beautiful well decorated room and very quiet. Very good breakfast, with fresh fruit, served in the room.
