Classic Paris Péniche
Beautiful classic houseboat in the center of Paris, near Concorde!
- Wooden 70s interiour
- Center of Paris
- Warm, spacious and cozy
- Outside terrace
- Classic riverboat
This classic riverboat is moored right in the middle of Paris, in the 8th arrondissement, between Place de la Concorde and the Grand Palais. It is also one of the oldest marinas in Paris. Though the port is very calm and secure (but still don't leave your stuff outside when you are not there), within walking distance of many amazing sights and roaring nightlife, this péniche will give you the experience in Paris you want!
This classic péniche has its interior made in 70s, in the Netherlands. Since it is all wood, the interior is very rustic. Specially in the summer, when you can also open many windows. In the winter, the central heating makes sure you experience nothing from the winter cold outside. As the heat diffuses through the wood, the péniche will be warm and cozy. If you like very neat interiors or very modern and new ones, you are not at the good place. We are more rustic and authentic :)
NB : the pictures have been taken with a panoramic camera. When you will see the boat in reality, it can look a bit smaller that you have imagined.
It is very easy to reach, as there are many stations for bus and metro nearby.
Musée d'Orsay, le Grand Palais, Jardin des Tuileries, le Louvre, le Avenue des Champs-Elysées: these are all places that are walking distance from the boat!
The boat has a fully equiped kitchen, internet, TV and a washing machine. There is a terrace/sundeck that allows you to have lunch or dinner outside while having a gorgeous view of the energetic city around you.
Come stay, and experience Paris the way you should!

The houseboat is in the family since the early 1970's. built by our grand uncle. It has been originally restored from a former transport barge active in the Netherlands canals. I have been living on it since 2001.
I myself travel a lot for work, so I prefer to share this place for periods of more than one month, with fellow river lovers!
We enjoy a unique location, and I am sure you will feel here as good as I have for the past years. I know boats and tourisme, so feel free to ask any questions and interest you might have for France, Spain, and the life on boats!

Lovely warm boat - very welcoming
We had a great weekend on the boat. It was easily roomy enough for the three of us, and lovely and warm. The kitchen was great, allowing us to cook some meals, though Paris doesn't lack for nice options to buy. The nespresso machine was also welcome! The location was very convenient within walking distance of almost everything we did. Marc was very good at communicating prior to arrival, and very welcoming once we were there.

we had an amazing stay on Marc's boat. The host was very welcoming, trustworthy and organized. The location of this boat is ideal! We slept comfortably with 3 persons. Next time we will definitely return!

Classy accommodation in best part of Paris
My husband and I stayed a delightful 9 nights in the Classic Paris Peniche, enjoying the charm of this cosy, classic boat. The kitchen was well set up so we cooked quite a few meals, roast duck in the oven, and bought store salads and fresh vegetables and wine. In some ways the boat was the highlight of our visit. We walked to all the best sights ... but sitting on the deck watching passing boats was more fun. The kitchen made it cost-effective... more money to spend on clothes and entertainment. Antique books and crafted wood details made it full of character. You are really in the Paris of Amelie.

Great experience, great location
We had a great time on Marc’s boat. Just wish we had more time on the boat to soak up the atmosphere. The internet wasn’t working and Marc turned up with his spare iPhone for us to hotspot.
Great for anyone wanting an unique real life experience.
