John is a super friendly and nice host! He replies fast. The boat is full of charme and i already miss it. You can visit beautiful places like Minerve and the Lac de Juarres.

A charming stay in a beautiful and peaceful village. The houseboat is as delightful as you might imagine through John's description, would certainly recommend and hope to go back myself.

We loved our night on John's boat - wish it could have been longer! Amazing weather, peaceful surroundings, beautiful nature and wildlife, great shop and restaurant a few minutes walk away. What more could we ask?

Comfy bed on a boat with good facilities. Quiet location and enjoyed sitting on boat terrace in evening. Did not see the rowboat or the cat but may have missed it as only stayed 1 night. Good food in la guinguitte restaurant 5 mins walk

We enjoyed the time there. Everything was nice. Nature, nearby, the village and the canal.. of course the unique houseboat Artis ( not only unique, full-equiped ) was the best. We want to stay there again longer next time.
