Houseboat / 4 bedrooms / sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Car not necessary
  • Air conditioning
  • No pets allowed

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 indoors

A family home for most of the year, Devolu is fully-equipped with everything a cook could want - oils, herbs and spices of every kind.

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

The Ile-de-France region

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.

"Excellent accomodation , Spacious, Comfortable & Clean"

My Children 13,16,17 plus Grandparent 78 all had an excellent time in Paris . The boat made an excellent base for seeing the sights as public transport is minutes walk away.The boat is spacious, very comfortable and clean and Rupert your instructions are brilliant

"Fabulous Family Base to Explore Paris From..."

Gave a much needed place to relax and review each day of our holiday ... could just sit and watch the river for hours from the boat. Having the huge Auchan Supermarket and local shops one tram stop away meant we could call in on our way home every night and pick up bread, cheese and wine for family suppers. It saved us a lot of money. The handy chalkboard wall, and the chalk, were a very thoughtful addition that we used to write up and plan our daily schedule. Buy the Museum Pass - it was great to jump to the head of the queues every day. At Versailles, if it's busy, cut to the garden line on the left and do it first - go back to the chateau around two after the crowds have gone.

"Perfect for relaxing and seeing Paris"

We spent a lovely week on Rupert`s barge. We were looking for something that had easy access to all the sights of Paris, but without the hustle and bustle of being in the city, and we found it. It was a short walk to the train station which took us straight into Montparnasse. Here we could rent a bike from one of the many Velib bike rental stations, or just walk and take in all there was to see. After a busy day in Paris we just relaxed on the deck of the barge and watched the traffic on the Seine. We had 3 teenage boys with us who all enjoyed the experience of living on a barge. They also very much appreciated the free internet so that they could keep in touch with friends. There were both boulangerie`s, supermarket`s and restaurants within walking distance of the barge, so no need to have a car to get anywhere, ours sat parked on the walkway beside the barge almost the whole time we were there. Thank you Rupert for the experience of living in your home!
