    Great stay onboard

    I had a very nice time on board the boat in Metz. The location is really nice and this is true for the boat as well. It is clean and well-equipped and the owners are very friendly and helpful. I can strongly recommend staying there and I am sure that I will return.

    Highly recommended houseboat near Metz

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of several days on Hervé's houseboat. The location was ideal - walking distance from the centre of Metz, but in a very quiet stretch of the canal, with clear clean water, greenery all round, and bird life. The houseboat is compact but well designed and equipped, and tastefully decorated. We were glad of the air-conditioning during the heat wave, but enjoyed sitting out on the deck for evening meals. Hervé is very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive! The provision of two bikes is a useful touch. Altogether very highly recommended!

    Super Hausboot bei Metz

    Der alte Lastkahn ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail zu einem geschmackvollen Feriendomizil umgestylt worden, in dem man sich sofort wohl fühlt. Die Lage am Kanal ist herrlich. Morgens , wenn man in der gemütlichen Koje aufwacht lachen (im Mai) wunderschöne Kastanienblüten durch das Bullaugen. Abends singen die Nachtigallen. Beim Frühstück (z.B. mit typisch lothringischem Mirabellenkuchen (gibt es in der Altstadt zu kaufen))auf der "Terrasse" kann man das geruhsame Treiben am Kanal beobachten, Reiher fliegen vorbei, Jogger drehen ihre Runden und Angler warten auf den nächsten Fisch. Spazier- und Radwege laden zu Erkundungen ein, sogar ein Jakobsweg führt hier vorbei. Die Stadt Metz mit ihrer eindrucksvollen Kathedrale und vielen Parks ist sehr schön und interessant und auch ein Abstecher nach Nancy im Süden ist lohnenswert.

    Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und sagen Merci!
