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!

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! Our own home for most of the year, Devolu is fully-equipped with everything a family needs - a massive movie collection, board games, a terrace with plancha and a kitchen with everything a foodie could want!

Further details outdoors

Devolu is situated amid the calm and greenery of Ile St Germain, an exclusive island on the Seine just outside central Paris which offers all the advantages of the big city - speed and ease of travel into the centre, shops, restaurants and so on - but also a beautiful, quiet environment that makes it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods by residents.

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.

Meudon

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”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2013

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...”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2011

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”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2011

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!
