A very unusual and quirky place to stay. Modern, sophisticated and spotlessly clean. We had super weather which allowed to utilise the upper deck for relaxing , eating and watching river life. We used it as a base for day trips to Paris . It's worth driving to the station as takes 5 minutes and there is free parking , and the car is appreciated after a long day sightseeing to save a 20 minute walk with slow young children! If you like to cook , it's worth being aware that there is no oven , just a hob and microwave. The barge is very spacious and I can strongly recommend this experience .
This is a real family home. So much so that you felt the family had popped out for a short while and were returning shortly with cakes to enjoy with coffee.
We have never stayed in such a personal home. It was a privilege to be so trusted by each of them. We had access to their personal bits and pieces left throughout the house, and our granddaughter had the best time playing with the daughter and sons' many.
It offers easy access to Paris by train, but do ensure you take Euro change with you as we were unable to use our cards in the ticket machine.
The Palace of Versailles is very close also.
A super stay and highly recommended.
