House Rules

1- As I keep a day free to clean the boat between two different hosts, I am very flexible for check in and check out (early morning or late evening at your convenience).

In my opinion my boat must be clean to welcome my guest so I don't want to add cleaning fee and I consider this extra charges as a way to increase the price without any more guarantee about the cleanliness !

2- I want point out an obvious fact that my boat rocks with the Seine river; the river is very quite during the night time ( midnight to morning ).

3- According my boat's caracteristics : in the hold the height is 1,85m to 1,95m, in the wheelhouse the height is 2,05m.

4- For security reasons :
Children are not accepted on board and parties are not permitted.
I keep the right to access from the wheel house to the engines room if necessary.

5-The boat is moored with two other boats (as you can see on the pictures) so I request you to respect our neighbors boats.

6- The quay Conti where is moored the boat belongs to UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE since 1991 so I request that the guests don't park car on the quay !

Enjoyable experience! Rene & Martine are exceptional hosts. The boat was comfortable and in the best spot in Paris for touring and just watching Paris unfold. Sitting in the wheel house with a glass of wine and watching the Louvre at night will always be remembered.

Soleil Rouge is an extraordinary experience. Location cannot be beat, the host is extraordinary - met us upon arrival at the boat, helped us with our bags and even met us for departure and arranged a taxi. It is not for everyone - there is some movement when other boats pass by but we found it to be quite enjoyable.

This is my second time staying on Rene's peniche, so that should say it all! It is a Parisian dream. Perfect location, beautifully decorated, kind hosts, comfy bed, excellent ambiance. If you're looking for a one of a kind experience in Paris, it's here! A big thank you again to Rene et Martine <3

Pros: Location, location, location; possibly the best in all Paris! You can easily walk to many museums, bars and restaurants. Very romantic setting and furnished with great art. Has a wonderful vibe and it’s obvious it’s a home and not just a rental unit. Perfectly equipped with all the amenities one could ask for, except for AC. Fantastic hosts, you couldn’t ask for better! Rene and Francine greeted us and carried our extremely heavy luggage to and from the boat. They instructed us of their favorite restaurants and even made a reservation for us. Upon departure they arraigned for and met the taxi at 5:45 am. Basically it seemed like Rene was completely there for us. I left feeling like we made new friends. Cons: Unfortunately we were in Paris in one of its’ worst heat waves so without an AC and only one small fan it was very uncomfortable. I can tolerate a lot of heat but it was even too much for me and my partner who can’t tolerate heat well was miserable. A small AC unit would have made all the difference, and we would definitely give it five stars. With the windows open there’s a lot of noise from other tour boats passing by on the Seine. Once again a small AC unit would have made all the difference. Remember it's a boat and will sway from side to side with the waves. That didn't bother us at all. Getting on and off the boat requires some agility and might be difficult for anyone with mobility problems. STAY HERE if it's not going to be very hot!

What a fantastic place to spend some romantic time in the centre of Paris on your own little canal boat. Rene and Martine were wonderful hosts, a friendly welcome, lots of tips and a lovely welcome pack of food. We absolutely loved our stay, especially getting rocked to sleep at night. Even better than the pictures suggest x

Cela fait une quarantaine d'années que j'habite une péniche sur la Seine; c'est avec plaisir que je vous ferai partager le goût de vivre sur l'eau dans un bateau respectueux d'un environnement patrimonial exceptionnel.
Ayant beaucoup séjourné à l'étranger en tant qu'auteur de guide de voyages indépendant, j'ai tenté de transmettre à mes lecteurs le goût de sortir des sentiers battus, la méfiance et le recul face aux visions officielles et promotionnelles en tout genre, tout en essayant de conserver un humour et une modestie vis à vis de soi-même.
je suis particulièrement à l'écoute de mes hôtes que j'accueille personnellement pour présenter le bateau et reste à leur disposition joignable 24 heures sur 24 par téléphone.
Compte tenu des trop nombreux détournements non contrôlés par Airbnb, je précise que je suis le véritable propriétaire et occupant du bateau que je loue ponctuellement et sur lequel vous séjournerez; je ne suis pas un agent immobilier, ni un concierge, ni un prête-nom.
