Three Houseboats That Will Float Your Boat!

Good things come in small packages, especially when it’s a beautiful designed houseboat! From Paris to Lake Eildon, these spaces prove that while they might be petite in size, they seriously punch above their weight when it comes to personality, creativity and verve. Let’s go sailing!

What could be better than living in the heart of Paris? Living in the heart of Paris on a houseboat!

Belonging to a Parisan lady called Valérie, this 100 year old barge is moored on the River Siene and is pitch-perfect modern bohemian living. Oh là là!

 

Lake Eildon

My grandparent’s house was just around the corner from Lake Eildon, and I can’t say I ever saw a boathouse as sublime as this one!

Designed by Melbourne interior design firm, Pipkorn & Kilpatrick, this three level, four bedroom, two bathroom and two galley kitchen houseboat is a masterclass in understated design. The result is a space that feels generous and free flowing – two things I bet you’d never hear about a houseboat!

Moored on London’s Regent’s Canal, Bert’s Barges is a boutique barge hotel that proves small can be beautiful.

Constructed by boat builder in Liverpool, Bert’s Barges took eight months to complete. The result is a sophisticated space that mixes Scandinavian vintage with modern luxe perfectly.
