Friday and Saturday are more expensive , Sunday the least expensive. There is a one time cleaning fee of 16 euro. Occasionally, guests have inquired about reducing the cleaning fee. I can negotiate helping with this fee if guest(s) will participate in the cleaning. For bicyclers following the canal , it is not practical for more than one night , but I am happy to participate with the journey , by providing a place to relax . It is not a motel , there is no television.

We loved our night on John's boat - wish it could have been longer! Amazing weather, peaceful surroundings, beautiful nature and wildlife, great shop and restaurant a few minutes walk away. What more could we ask?

Comfy bed on a boat with good facilities. Quiet location and enjoyed sitting on boat terrace in evening. Did not see the rowboat or the cat but may have missed it as only stayed 1 night. Good food in la guinguitte restaurant 5 mins walk

We enjoyed the time there. Everything was nice. Nature, nearby, the village and the canal.. of course the unique houseboat Artis ( not only unique, full-equiped ) was the best. We want to stay there again longer next time.

This wonderful houseboat of John is a small paradise surrounded by pure nature. You wake up with bird`s singsong and fall asleep after two or three good glasses of wine, bird`s singsong and listening to the "house-fish" (we called him Bruno), who is doing his underwater workouts…

As I have always lived a spontaneous life , destiny becomes your very good friend. Nothing like floating in the river , instead of going against the current. Tranquility is abundant at the Houseboat and I leave you to your privacy unless you require assistance with something th…
