Fantastic Experience!

5 of 5
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 .
