Paris, France · Boat · 1 Bedroom · 2 - 4 people

Le Bateau is both a luxurious and highly original holiday home, offering all the ingredients for enjoying Paris in comfort and style, whether for a romantic honeymoon, or as a base for a small family wanting a central location from which to explore Paris. Ideally situated, it is in the Port de Suffren, on the left bank, almost right at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. In fact, the Port de Suffren was formerly an active dock where many of the materials for the building of the Eiffel Tower, were unloaded. Nearby, there is a twice weekly open-air market and a good selection of boutiques, restaurants, bistros and, of course, the historical sites which make up this fascinating part of Paris. There is a metro station and RER riverside service, and a bus stop, all within a couple of minutes walk, and also an embarkation point for a boat bus which can be taken up river with stops including the Musée d'Orsay and Notre Dame.

The boat was originally built in the north of Holland in 1916 and, powered by sail, she worked the inland seas and waterways of the Netherlands carrying cargoes such as steel, coal and grain. In the mid-fifties she was outfitted with diesel power, her tonnage was increased and she continued to work northern Europe and the Rhine Basin well after her 162-ton capacity was no longer competitive. Converted to a luxurious "living boat" in the early seventies, it continues to be a completely functional and fully autonomous river boat, with her home port in Paris since 1975. Refurbished recently to a very high standard, it offers spacious accommodation of around 800 sq. ft comprising a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and extensive living-dining area.

The boat is accessed via a tree-lined entrance to the port and the cobblestone quai. Once on board the deck-terrasse, you will be able to enjoy the expansive view of the Seine and the Beaux-Arts architecture of Passy on the opposite bank, while sipping a cocktail in the evening, or having a morning coffee. With panelled wooden walls, and floorboards with rugs, the interiors are very comfortably furnished with comfortable sofa and chairs, and equipped with TV, VHS, a video library, telephone (no charge for local calls), fax and wi-fi internet connection. There is a king-size bed in the bedroom and a second sofa in the living area can be converted into two very comfortable single beds for additional guests. The owner will meet guests on arrival and is available to help guests with information, such as the location of neighborhood shops, markets, public transportation, etc. A variety of quide books for Paris are provided, including restaurants, museums, walking tours and there are two bicycles available. Reserved parking can also be arranged.
