“The photos don't lie......”

We stayed for 7 nights on the amazing Bateau Simpatico and could not find any fault with it. This amazing canal boat is exactly as the photos show and even better, if that is possible. The location is excellent, being at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, near a Metro station, close to restaurants, bars and grocery stores, not to mention the Sunday and Wednesday fresh market stalls. The Simpatico is spacious and superbly appointed with comfortable bedding, roomy bathroom and full kitchen facilities.
The only point I would make is that we were unaware, until about our 4th day, that the owner, Cpt Bob, actually resides in the forward part of the boat.....the only reason I make mention of this is that he seemed to keep that fact a secret and never once during our 8+ months of correspondence did he mention it......a bit strange, we thought.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here and couldn't have wished for better. It is a great location for exploring the city as both the metro & RER stations are very close by. Alternatively if you fancy a chill out holiday you can just sit on the boat with a cold beer or a nice glass of wine or two watching the city life go on around you. At night this is spectacular as the city lights up and the Eiffel towers twinkling lights are not to be missed.

“The perfect place to stay in Paris”
Reviewed 18 May 2012 for a stay in August 2010

We stayed on Bob's beautiful boat for a week visting Euro Disney, Asterix Parc and the Roce en Seine Festival at Parc de St Cloud It is a great location just by the Pont Bir Hakim and the Tour Eifell and with a metro station and bus routes nearby. There are lots of restaurants and a street market a couple of minutes away, and you can walk to the Pailais Royal

The boat is quite idylic and the gentle rocking has you sleeping like a baby.

“The Simpatico was PERFECT........I felt like a true Parisian!!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012 for a stay in June 2011

person found this review helpful

Upon my first visit to Paris, I wandered the river and daydreamed about having a boat of my own on the Seine River.....When I returned home, I googled "Houseboats in Paris" and found the description of the Bateau Simpatico....The following summer, I explored Italy and Europe with my teenage son and stayed 2 weeks on the Simpatico---It was amazing to see the fireworks display around the Eiffel Tower from the boat on Bastille Day! Everything is within easy walking distance from where we stayed.....Restaurants, museums, taxi's, metro and grocery stores!! I have returned twice since then and each visit has felt like I was going "home"....."Captain Bob", the owner, is a wonderful soul!! My son still speaks of the many evenings he spent on top the boat with Captain Bob and treasures the stories and legends and advice he so eloquently shared with him!! Wine, cheese and dinners on top the boat around the old charming wooden table----Priceless!! You won't be disappointed----Just please don't make your reservations before me for 2012!!!!!
