Why staying in a houseboat in Paris?

Why choosing a houseboat as accommodation?

Living your holiday from a houseboat means choosing to live an adventure without giving up all the comforts of the regular accommodation such as short rental apartments.

Personally, I really like houseboats that are very personalized. You will see that on Paris Rent Apartments you will find only the most whimsical ones. Plus, I think that even if I don’t like cruises a lot, I do like spending time in a very luxury boat. Lots of people choose this solution to explore the city they love. You can live in a houseboat during a stay in every period of the year or you can choose a special holiday to live this experience!

Just think about admiring the fireworks for the New Year’s Eve or for the Independent Day from a houseboat! The view would be the most unique.

But now, let’s talk about why choosing houseboats as your accommodation in Paris.

A Houseboat in Paris: why?

There are many  elements that could make you choose a houseboat as accommodation in Paris.

First of all, this may be surprising to you but houseboats are very refined! This is because owners and property managers learned to know the potentialities of this type of accommodation. Houseboats in Paris means that you are living on the Seine. It is the river that crosses the city so it is very sure that you will be in the center! In Paris, you can choose houseboats that are at walking distance from the most central attractions and landmarks.

You also have to know that to make houseboats even more unique, owners hired architects and designers that made every corner of these accommodations perfectly designed and thought for the luxurious life. Every space is super accurate. It is very interesting see how everything you need can be re-sized for houseboats.

An element that can be denied is that you can stay in houseboats only during Summer. Wrong!!! Nowadays, houseboats are fully equipped for every season. You can be sure to stay very warm during Winter, even if you are living on a river. Also, note that you can choose from a houseboat that is actual a docked boat and floating houses. I think that if you want to live an adventure like this, you should totally opt for a houseboat that is an actual boat!

The real plus of some houseboats? If you have the proper license, you can even use it to move around!
