    Wonderful holiday

    We had an amazing time board the houseboat! It was very clean and spacious, and well equipped. The houseboat is very central located on the river. The water was low, so we had to row from and to the boat, which was a fun experience (not if you are old or arthritic). The owners were very nice and helpful.
