About owner/property manager

Retired from the fashion industry. A people person. A sportaholic who particpates from a sedentary position these days.

owner/property manager purchased this house boat in 2002

Why owner/property manager chose Camargue - Costieres

I built the ship from scratch. It took three years to complete. We sailed around France for 18th months, but when we arrived in Aigues-Mortes, we fell in love with it. Our mooring is close to the town, but quiet. An important consideration for some, as the main port is noisy. Following certain recent political and economic events we have dropped our prices considerably for 2017. We now do not accept any children under 13 years old.

What makes this house boat unique

You are invited into my home, which I share with you, but I take care not to intrude. there are three ship's cats, two dogs and a caged (when you are here) amazon parrot. The Capatin fulfills all normal domestic duties. You are on holiday, so NO washing up!

Klare Empfehlung für Urlauber mit Haustieren

Wir, zwei Erwachsene mit zwei Neufundländern, hatten im August 2016 das Glück, auf der Saul Nomad einen Urlaub abseits der Norm verbringen zu dürfen. Ein elegantes Hausboot in ruhiger Umgebung, ein grandioser Ausblick auf die mittelalterliche Festungsanlage von Aigues Mortes und ein unglaublich liebenswürdiger, tierlieber Kapitän als Gastgeber. Mit seiner unaufdringlichen Art, seinen grandiosen Kochkünsten (wir haben seine Currys und sein Frühstück sehr genossen) und seinen Insidertipps für die Umgebung hat John unseren Aufenthalt an Bord sehr bereichert. Da John Engländer ist war die Kommunikation auch problemlos, da unser Französischunterricht in der Schule doch ein wenig länger zurückliegt. Wer, wie wir, Hunde hat und im Urlaub nicht auf die geliebten Vierbeiner verzichten möchte, ist auf der Saul Nomad richtig. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und waren sicher nicht das letzte Mal an Bord!

We, two adults with two newfoundlands, were lucky to be on Saul Nomad in august 2016 and to spend a holiday aside the norm. An elegant houseboat in a calm environment, a marvellous view of the middle age fortress of Aigues Mortes and an unbelievable likeable, animal loving capitain as host. With his unobstrusive nature, his superb cooking skills (we enjoyed his currys and this breakfast very much) and his inside tipps for the environment John really enriched our stay on board. Because John is an Englishman the communication was easy, as our French lessons in school are a longer time ago. When you, as we, have dogs and are not willing to have holidays without your four legged friends, the Saul Nomad is the right place for you. We felt allround well and were not the last time on board, that´s for sure!
