Ever wondered what it would be like to live on a houseboat? Devolu offers you a convenient base to visit the sites of Paris, go to Disneyland and the Chateau de Versailles while coming home each day to an amazing experience of another kind. One of the most luxurious boats on the Seine, Devolu offers fabulous river views, indoor and outdoor dining, excellent transport facilities and a mooring spot that is so green and calm that you won't believe it possible just a few minutes journey from the Eiffel Tower!
The living area, dining room, kitchen and terrace are on the upper level of the boat, with 360° windows, air-conditioning and designer furniture. The four bedrooms are below deck, each with a huge window looking out at water level. It is a dream home that is going to present you with just one problem - you're not going to want to leave it to go sightseeing!
Update: Due to works for a public park that is being created along the banks of the Seine, Devolu will be moving in the spring of 2015 to a nearby location on Ile St. Germain for a period of two years. Situated about four hundred yards from our normal mooring, the boat will be on a very tranquil branch of the river that is closed to navigation. The spot is very green and distances to public transport and local amenities remain very similar to the current description.

|Further details outdoors|
Devolu is situated looking toward the calm and greenery of l'Ile St. Germain and beside Paris' future arts hub on l'Ile Seguin - it's the ideal place for sitting out in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine and cooking on the gas-fired plancha
Paris needs no introduction - the world's most popular destination, it offers everything that a person could want from a city. Devolu is excellently situated for visiting the sites, with the Eiffel Tower and central Paris just twenty minutes door-to-door from leaving the boat, the tram stop being one minute away. At the same time, it benefits from the fact that it is moored just outside the zone in which houseboats are constantly being disturbed by the wake and spotlights of the tourist boats - it truly is one of the best spots on the river Seine.
2015 Update: Due to works being carried out along the banks of the Seine, Devolu will not be available to rent in 2015
The wider Paris area offers numerous attractions of its own - Disneyland is easily reachable from the boat by car or public transport, and the nearby train station will get you to the Chateau de Versailles in just 20 minutes.
