Welcome on board ! A barge in Paris, it's so romantic !

We choose a barge in Paris:

  • to have a drink there often, it is so pleasant
  • for a little stroll on the Seine, it's so romantic
  • and sometimes, to live simply

Having a drink on board a barge has become so trendy!

  • Can not name all addresses! Along the Seine, you will find many floating terraces on barges, at the quay or for a little stroll on the Seine and / or its canals
  • To enjoy a panoramic view, the calm of the banks of the Seine, to feel like you are at the sea or on a dance floor, all reasons are good to spend a moment on the water with family or friends.
  • The offer of peniche in Paris, has developed a lot in the last years and knows a new craze since the quays of the Seine have become pedestrians.
  • Even the traditional Seine cruise companies have their own terrace on the quay. To name but a few, let us mention the Vedettes de Paris with their pizza option and also Bateaux-Mouches with their rooftop "le Mouche
  • Sorry, but it is impossible for us to recommend a particular barge restaurant. You should know that some of them offer very interesting promotions.

A cruise on board a barge or a boat to enjoy the Seine and its canals

  • If you are not an everyday sailor, take a barge cruise on the Seine
  • Sail for an hour or a day on a tour on the Seine to enjoy the Seine and its canals at your own pace. It is the occasion of an unforgettable moment between friends or family and it is also the opportunity to discover Paris differently.
  • Barge, panoramic boat of the type Bateau Mouche, Batobusinflatable canoe, electric boat or a small yacht? many boats ply the Seine and its canals.
  • And nothing is more romantic than a cruise at dusk, or a lunch or dinner on the water.

Living on board a barge, a dream for some but it is far from easy

  • Life on the water is a dream for many city dwellers. However, it is not not so simple to be a freshwater sailor.
  • You don't moor at a dock without permission and it is often an expensive and administratively complicated dream. Thus, not only do you have to wait a long time for administrative authorization (currently more than 200 people are on the waiting list in the Ile-de-France), but the price has become totally exorbitant. In the center of Paris, you won't find anything under 900,000 euros," explains Sylvie Desbonnet, manager of the Seine Plus river real estate agency. And to get your hands on a barge in front of Eiffel Tower, you will have to pay at least 1.5 million euros.
  • In short, while waiting to live on your own barge in Paris, console yourself by having a drink on one of the new barges moored along the Seine or offer yourself a cruise on the Seine by barge for a few hours. It's much easier!
