Soleil is a quirky but very comfortable boat. Its location is fantastic and we had a wonderful time. Jean was a very welcoming host. He explained everything and said we could 'phone if we had any problems. We felt very at home.

We had a delightful time on Jean's houseboat. It is a fabulous location, and since we drove, it was a great plus that there was parking right there. We would definitely consider going back. As others have said, the location was so magical that we didn't really want to go anywhere…

I’ve stayed in 5 star hotels in Paris and Jean’s houseboat blows them away. You will not find a more romantic, unique, and spectacular place to stay in Paris. It’s magical. And Jean is a gracious and thoughtful host. Dive at this opportunity if you get a chance.
