About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose 7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower

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.

What makes this house boat unique

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.

Remarkable location but challenging in other ways

  • 3 of 5
When you climb on deck and see the Eiffel Tower each morning and night, you forgive the spiders and the frequent head-bumping. I'd read all the amazing reviews, and truly did love being here in many ways, but anyone above 5'10" will not be able to stand up inside, and anyone else will constantly bump their head getting into the rear bedroom, laundry crawl space, and up and down the entrance ladder. Despite clearing the deck of spiderwebs at least twice a day, my kids suffered frequent bites, and Carlos had no suggestions to help with that. I would highly recommend that they get a pest control company to spray. There is only one toilet, not in the master ensuite but in the main area, and its flushing capabilities are very sensitive (reminds you of being in an airplane or RV bathroom). Also, be aware that there is no nearby grocery store, so it's a very long walk to bring back any provisions, and having no real address to give taxi drivers is definitely confusing. It's a very unique property, and glad we tried it, but wouldn't return. Just had to give some warnings along with the glowing reviews here.

Owner's Response: Dear Anita,
We are a bit saddened to read your comments. We have rented the houseboat over 50 times and often to guests who come back year after year. But it is true that a houseboat is not for everyone.
A houseboat has low ceilings. It's just a fact and that's why we were careful to point out that fact in our first correspondence with you back in December 2013. And as for having just 1 toilet, the description of the boat and its amenities as well as the floor plan clearly list 1 toilet. We're sorry you felt that wasn't adequate for your family. The boat is located in the heart of Paris and is within easy walking distance to so many tourist attractions and shopping. A 10 minute walk along the Seine and you're at rue du Bac and so many wonderful grocery shops and bakeries. Most of our guests are happy to make that walk and discover the charms of Paris. Given this is a houseboat, it is on the water surrounded by trees so yes we have spiders who leave spider webs. There really isn't much we can do about them. We sweep, they come back. We do appreciate however you taking the time to send us your comments and we hope you all had a nice stay in Paris.

Best Seat in the House

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay on Risico. It is a wonderful base from which to explore Paris. The boat is extremely comfortable and modern. It accommodates 6 people with ease and we enjoyed sharing meals together there and relaxing after full days of Paris sightseeing to compare notes. The location at Place de la Concorde is perfect. We look forward to another opportunity to stay on Risico in the future

Great Hotel / Apartment Alternative

  • 5 of 5
We chose the RISICO for its excellent location and large deck top outdoor space. We were not disappointed! We had a great view of Bastille Day fireworks and every day the Eiffel Tower put on an entertaining light show. Despite is small size the kitchen is well designed and very useful. We were able to take advantage of the specialty food shops on nearby Rue Cler and had several memorable meals on the water. Appliances, water and wifi all worked well although the AC unit struggled somewhat on two unusually hot days. Christine was great to work with and very responsive when we had a slight plumbing issue. We found photos / information in earlier reviews to be accurate and reliable - so read those carefully! Will definitely consider this when we return.

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
