Very relaxing, looking over the Rhone to Avignon in a modern fit out.

  • 4 of 5

Must eat at the Treille. Lovely food, great waitress, in an old house.

Barge was comfortable, spacious and quiet, 20min walk into town.

Philippe was friendly and easy going.

Fantastic holiday on a fantastic houseboat!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us went to stay on this houseboat and we all loved it. It is very clean, modern, spacious, fully equipped, great location - perfect for a great holiday.

The air conditioning is great to have as Avignon can be quite hot. We had a BBQ and tried the pool - all great. It has brilliant views (over the river) of Avignon, the centre of which is a 15 minute walk away, so you get the proximity with not so much of the noise!

Philippe provided good customer service (with little English) and I am definitely recommending this property to my friends and family.

All in all a great holiday!

Beautiful, Well Laid out Modern Boat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully thought out and well maintained boat in a great location with superb views. Great facilities on board, all you could need, and in a great location. About a 15 minute walk into the old town, some steps up to the bridge, but a nice stroll. Lots to do in the nearby areas. Phillipe (who doesn't actually speak English) lives on the front of the boat but he is completely self contained and you wouldn't know he was there.

Laid back luxe!

  • 5 of 5

This delightful, well thought out, modern houseboat was a great location for our family stay. Not too much or too little and Philippe was friendly and helpful (though we didn't hear him speak any English!). Air conditioning was a big help as the sun really did heat up the inside kitchen area! Thankfully we were able to retreat down below when it got too much. Children found the walk into town a challenge in the heat as there are few facilities on the island. We hired bikes and cycled which was delightful. Highly recommended though a week was enough to enjoy Avignon.

just amazing !

  • 5 of 5

It is an extremly beautiful, modern and well equipped boat, just as seen in the pictures. We were eight people and we were all stunned. The kitchen has everything you might need, including a dishwasher, oven, induction cooker, coffemaker, watercooker, toaster and a fridge/freezer big enough to be filled with food (and beer) for 8 people. The whole Boat is also very spacious, so that you can easily sit inside with eight people when it gets too cold outside. If it isn't, you have plenty of space outside, have a nice bbq or enjoy the pool.

Mr. Capelli is very obliging and we all loved our stay.

very recommendable !
