Why rent a houseboat?

Choose a houseboat rental to have an authentic, functional, and economical accommodation perfect for boat lovers and originality seekers. People often forget about this ideal alternative to regular options, especially when hotels are crowded, overbooked and overpriced during events (festivals, shows, conventions). Houseboats are as comfortable as apartments and can allow visitors to discover their favourite cities from an entirely different point of view. Areas like Paris, Brittany, or Lyon are popular for houseboats. Trying something new is always exciting, and we are sure that you will get great memories and original stories to tell from renting a houseboat. If you want a romantic weekend in Paris, a fun week with your family on the water in the south of France, or a trip with friends, try staying on a Houseboat!

A houseboat holiday - relaxation, action, and new experiences.

How does a holiday that combines all your wishes sound? Rest assured, when you rent a houseboat, relaxation, activities and new experiences are all combined. It is a type of holiday that is suitable for a family with children as well as for friends.

What types of houseboats are there?

Houseboat is a broad term for different types of boats on which you can basically live. When renting a houseboat, it is important to think carefully about what your needs are. Do you plan to go fishing during your stay, do you dream of a barbecue by the water or do you want to invite family and friends over for a cozy evening on a spacious terrace? Or do you prefer a cozy house on the water for 2? The capacity of the houseboats on offer ranges from 2 guests to a possibility of more than 12 guests onboard.

Below you will find a brief overview of the most common houseboats:

Narrowboat:

These traditional houseboats are reminiscent of times long gone, when canal systems were used to transport goods and materials. Immerse yourself completely in a nostalgic atmosphere with this type of houseboat.

Motorboats:

If you dream of something more luxurious and want to relax with a cocktail in hand and bathe in the sun, a motorboat houseboat is ideal for you. Invite family and friends to enjoy the view together in comfort.

Houseboats:

Looking for a cozy staycation for a weekend with the family? The term 'houseboat' can also refer to a simple boat without an engine. These boats are specifically designed to be used only as accommodation and not to move, of course, because they have no engine. Enjoy the cosiness of these wooden cottages by the water. This is the place for quality time with the family, sitting together and warming up after a dip in the water.
