1) - WELCOME ON BOARD
In this Belgian barge of 1927, the studio is what was formerly the cabin of the bargeman. Of a surface of 25 m ², he is ideal for a couple in a double bed but can also welcome the third person who will sleep in a single bed.
The studio is a perfectly privat part of the boat.
For a 1, 2 or 3 nights stay, please do a special request.
— The internal space is enlarged by numerous openings on all sides. However, because of its narrow doors and of its height of ceiling, the Studio apartment is reserved in persons of average corpulence.
— The air is there dry and the central heating guaranteed the best temperature in winter.
— The internal space is divided into a kitchen area (in the brake gear), a lounge - bedroom (in two levels), and a bathroom - toilets. It is equipped with Flat screen TV, with WIFI, with a radio - CD, with an iron and an ironing board (in the demand).
— The external space is shared in a covered terrace (surrounded with reed screening, for more intimacy) and a balcony. This space is equipped with hammocks, a table for two people with armchairs. The barbecue of the Loft apartment can be shared with the guest of the Studio apartment.
— Two bikes can be lent to you (against pledge, if you do not wish to use Vélibs).
A canoe is at your disposal to walk you in the small river's arm of Issy-les-Moulineaux.
Общение с гостями
— As the owner of the boat, I live aboard (into a separated flat) and I am there to welcome Guests and answer their questions.
— I must be there for the canoe and the bicycles; you have therefore to tell me the moment you would like to use them.
— Because it is a "Vacation Rental", normaly (according to the usual Régulation), guests should bring their towels and prepare beds by themselves, with the sheets provided to them. However, because we are on a "péniche" and because you are my guests, I put towels at your disposal (one per person), and your beds are done when your arrived (because they are a bit difficult to prepare). They will be striped the day of your departure, before your checkout.

Profit from your holiday in Paris by learning to draw/sketch. Courses of one week are proposed on the boat. The price includes accomodation and half-board.
The courses focus on self-expression through form and colour. We welcome all levels of artistic competence. The beautiful fluvail environment will stimulate the creativity of each student.
Classes take place every morning, followed, in the afternoon, by a programme combining sight-seeing with sketching.
The size of the class is restricted to a maximum of 8 people. Proposed accomodation consists in sharing the mini-loft with fellow students or alternatively, in the case of a couple desiring privacy, being loged in the "Mariner's Cabin".
Apart from the programmed courses, private classes are always available on demand.
Artistic Holidays last a week from Sunday to Sunday. Breakfast and lunch are included, as is the access to a kitchen where students may prepare their own dinner, and eventually take it on the terrace.
Drawing classes take place every morning from Monday to Friday, with 2 hours that is devoted to practical application and technique, and 1 hour to theory.
Afternoons are free, with, however, the option of participating in a 3 hour programme combining "artistic" sightseeing with sketching.
Artistic Holidays may be individual or collective. Group Artistic Holidays are programmed at specific times during the year. Individual students may chose their own Artistic Holiday formula as long as this does not clash with the already determined Group Artistic Holiday programmation.
If you are interested in the Artistic Holidays, just tell me on your demand.
