About John Smethurst
I built the barge in Gloucester, with some help! We started in 2002, and finished the fit out in 2005. We sailed from Gloucester to the from London to Calais. We cruised a few thousand kilometers around France, and then finally moored here in Aigues-Mortes in 2007. I had previously spent 35 years in Fashion Clothing, and running a Tennis Club.
John Smethurst purchased this Houseboat in 2002
Why John Smethurst chose Aigues-Mortes
I have put my heart and soul into this magnificent project. I want to share this pleasurable experience with you. Unlike many of our competitors, our prices include cleaning, and freshly laundered linen. We are a permanently moored houseboat.
What makes this Houseboat unique
I am only letting out two cabins on my luxury barge which is my permanent home. On one side of the ship is the 'Canal Maritime' Built originally in Medieval times by King Louis, so his ships could quickly access the sea, and where two Crusades departed from. Beyond our quay, is a small lane. The 'Route du Mole', but which Google for some inexplicable reason calls 'La Rayette'! It is bordered by a field that is the start of the National Park. (La Marette). We are about 300 meters from the Grand Site de la Marette. The main benefit of our mooring is that we are quiet because there is not much traffic but. we are only a mere twelve minutes walk from the center of Aigues-Mortes. The floodlit ramparts dominate the view from our decks. After ten years we are surrounded and accepted by the wildlife. Sorry no fishing from the decks...our fish and ducks are tame. If you love nature and prefer some luxury, we are for you!
- english, poor french, but my French girl friend helps here.
