I runned a marketing company and sold it in 2007 now I am renewing houses in provence and rent the houseboat.

The Owner purchased this house boat in 1998

when I found this houseboat, I sold it the day after the visit. It is unusual to find such a barge in this marvellous location.

it is another word, quiet even you are in the heart of paris. You can visit famous monuments, only by walking. Lay out with these types of view is also a real advantage.

FABULOUS STAY ON CHARMING BOAT

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to enjoy a fabulous stay on this charming boat. We couldn't ask for anything better. It was absolutely MAGIC ! Conveniently located in the centre of the exquisite neighbourhood of Le Louvres museum and Le Jardin des Tuileries, the péniche Risico is the perfect place to stay in Paris. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable, it was a delight coming back at the end of the day to relax on the boat and enjoy diner on the terrace after exploring the exclusive Parisian sceneries. The host provide us with good infos and tips of the area & went way and beyond to make us feel at home. We are looking forward in coming back soon on this awesome péniche Risico ! Tea or coffee at the Petit Palais'garden is a "must", just a 2-minute walk from the boat.

EXQUISITE STAY IN PARIS !

  • 5 of 5
The best kept secret in Paris ! We had a fantastic time on the péniche Risico. Awesome location in the middle of the best sites Paris has to offer, surrounded by beauty and art. Stunning views of the Seine, Eiffel Tower, Orsay museum, historic bridges and Grand Palais. Walking distances to all attractions, museums, nice neighboroughs, restaurants, services, food stores, delicious pastry shops and adjacent to metro stations, plus the bonus of a free parking spot by the péniche. However, no need for car in Paris. In addition to been very well equipped and nicely decorated, the Péniche is super comfy, clean, warm and very calm at night (felt like been in the countryside). We savoured all our evenings dining on the deck while admiring the views. Can't wait to go back. Highly recommended.

UNIQUE HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE IN PARIS

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I just spent a week on Risico. It has everything you could possibly need. The vicinity to all the sites could not be better. The manager who arranged transport, and met us at the boat was so kind and helpful and even booked us a beautiful restaurant and organised taxis. Perfect weather meant we spent hours up on deck watching the world go by. Fabulous accommodation, a unique experience, and 5 stars. Kate - UK and Helen - Australia

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY FOR A WEEK IN PARIS.

  • 5 of 5
There were six of us...three couples...and we all had the best time living on this houseboat on the Seine in Paris. What could possibly be better? The RISICO met or exceeded our every expectation. It was clean, the living area was spacious and appealing, bedrooms were comfortable, everything we needed was provided. It was so nice to be able to prepare a meal on the boat and enjoy it on the deck as we watched the tour boats pass by or to be sitting there, sipping wine, as the Eiffel Tower lights up at night. We lingered over breakfast at the large dining room table as we planned our days in Paris.
We failed to take note that there were two bathrooms on the houseboat but only one toilet, however we adapted and it worked out fine.

As mentioned in other reviews, the location was fantastic. We were able to walk to the Champs Elysees (at night, in the rain). Tuileries Garden, a short walk from the boat, was busy on a Saturday afternoon. It's such a beautiful place to relax and people watch. Try the delicious hot chocolate at one of the lovely cafes. On the opposite side of the river is the wonderful Musse d'Orsay...such easy walks to so many Paris destinations. We gave the metro a try and found that that was a great way to see the city...it's a short ride to Montmarte or Montparnasse where we found a very interesting old cemetery.

The property manager was friendly and helpful, giving us many suggestions on how to navigate the city, buy groceries, where to eat, etc. She also helped us arrange transportation to the boat from the train station. All six of us agreed that living on a houseboat on the Seine was absolutely the coolest way to stay in Paris. Hopefully, we'll be back.

ROMANTIC AND SECLUDED, IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a perfect week on the houseboat Aug 31- Sept 7. First, the disclaimer. Staying on Risico is in one way similar to being aboard a large sailboat, in that access is via a small set of steep stairs, and that the ceiling is low (6', as noted by another reviewer.) Apparently, the owner has had a few conflicts regarding that fact. So, if you are not boat people, keep looking. Once aboard, however, the space is astonishing.
That said, if you want to stay in the very heart of Paris, and feel as if you live there, Risico is your place. We cannot describe how wonderfully romantic it is to wake up and fall asleep to the sounds of the river, and the view of the Eiffel Tower each day. We imagined all the other tourists, who, stuck in hotels or cramped apartments, had to go out of their way just to see the Seine on their trip, while we called it home each and every night. Strolling the riverwalk, after watching the sunset and the lights come on at the Tower, we were enchanted by the mood. Here is where Parisians come to relax in the evenings, enjoy a picnic, and even throw impromptu parties with music and dancing.
The location can not be better. A block from the Louvre and the Jardin des Tuileries, within sight of the Orsay, and walking distance to Notre Dame and the beautiful Alexander Bridge. Truly in the center of everything, yet on a quiet quay set below street level, so that the nights are serene. Head to the St. Germaine neighborhood across the river for great cafes (the Saint Germaine was our favorite), or hit the market on Rue de Bellechasse, just south of Blvd St Germaine, for wine and cheese to take back to the boat (open late!), because, really, your deck is the best place to dine and watch the sunset!
Also, take advantage of the Velib bike rental system! Best thing we have ever seen - 8E to get a week membership, and bike stations are everywhere. And if you only ride 30 minutes or less (easy, with all the things to see and do), there are no further charges.
We found the boat clean and tidy, with everything we needed to stay in whenever we wanted. A bonus is that despite the lower overhead, the shower is placed near a skylight, so that you have plenty of room, and a high shower head, so no stooping to get wet! Really, the master bath is more like what you would find in a hotel.
My wife and I agreed that to stay in a hotel, on our next visit, would only invite disappointing comparisons. We will return!

ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5
The RISICO was in an ideal location for visiting the heart of Paris - surrounded by great museums and monuments on all sides. The amenities were all as described, and we enjoyed sitting on the sundeck in the evenings sipping cognac and watching the various boats passing by. The boats passed by until about 12:30PM and resumed at about 5:00AM during our stay.

In booking this place one needs to keep in mind that it is a boat and that fact does impact the physical layout somewhat. I stand six feet tall and with my shoes on I could not stand up fully inside the boat - but with my shoes off I could. People over six feet tall should be aware of this fact. Also because it is floating on water it does rock, more so when the boat traffic is active.

Access to the second guest bedroom as well as the clothes washer & dryer is also limited by a access port through the bulkhead that is about four feet high (I hit my head a few times passing through this portal).

Due to the height restrictions and the access from the pier to the boat I would not recommend this to people with mobility problems or height of more that six feet. I would also be concerned about small children because the ships railing has large gaps and you wouldn't want a child to slip through and fall into the river.

We were glad we stayed here and we really enjoyed the location. I would recommend it to the adventurous Paris visitor who wants a one-of-a-kind stay in the fabulous city.
