ideal boat, ideal location, welcoming fulco

  • 5 of 5

L emplacement de la péniche est idéale, nous avons passé 5 jours à pied et à vélo sans aucune nécessité de prendre un autre type de transport.

La péniche est aussi belle qu'en photo. Son piano, qui plus est si on sait en jouer, vous ravira.

Location idéale pour les musiciens soigneux : guitare et piano à dispo.

Petite attention à l'arrivée hyper appréciée , hôte de confiance , à vivement recommander.

Les tulipes nous ont encensées :-)

Séjour parfait hormis une petite tempête ... mais bon, autant on peut réserver un beau logement à l'avance , mais malheuresement Fulco ne maitrise pas la météo ;-)

Si la vie nous ramène à Amsterdam nous n'hésiterons pas une seconde !! Réservez !!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Fulco's houseboat last Fall, while attending an event in Amsterdam at which I also had to perform as a pianist. The boat turned out a lovely home base during my stay.

The situation is very good, near many nice shops (several supermarkets and specialty shops, but also various restaurants), and not far from Central Station. While there are many public transport options around, Fulco's bikes also were extremely helpful in navigating the city. Even though there are many tourists in Amsterdam (in the end, my stay overlapped with the Amsterdam Dance Event), the canal is slightly away from the largest crowds, so the surroundings generally are quiet.

The grand piano was in great shape, and as the boat is a separate unit, I could play it anytime, which was a huge bonus for me as a musician. Furthermore, the Internet worked great and the boat was well equipped overall, so I couldn't wish for anything more.

The boat's main room can be separated into two halves; this way, I could accommodate a colleague on a separate mattress in the living room corner while each of us retained some own personal space.

Finally, Fulco was a very pleasant and flexible host, who always was reachable in case I had any questions. Highly recommended!

gemütliches Hausboot, super zentral gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Das Hausboot ist durch seine Lage an der Brouwersgracht für alle Unternehmungen sehr gut gelegen. Die 4 Hauptgrachten (Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht) enden in der Brouwersgracht. Unweit des Hausbootes sind Cafes, Restaurants, Lebensmittelschäfte sowie diverse Shops. Montags ist in der Nähe ein großer Flohmarkt, Samstags Lebensmittelmarkt und Flohmarkt. Nicht weit entfernt ist der Hauptbahnhof (ca. 8 Minuten Fußmarsch), hier starten alle Straßenbahnen und viele Grachtenausflugsschiffe beginnen hier ihre Rundfahrten. Das Hausboot liegt unweit der Linie 3, diese Linie fährt zum Museumsplatz mit Rijksmuseum, Van-Gogh-Museum, Stedelijk-Museum und Diamantmuseum. Der Vermieter des Hausbootes erklärt kurz und knapp das Inventar und die technischen Gerätschaften des Hausbootes. Er bietet auch zwei Fahrräder zur Nutzung an, haben wir selber aber nicht genutzt. Er ist telefonisch und per Mail bei Bedarf jederzeit zu erreichen. Das Hausboot selber ist gemütlich eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet und bietet alles für einen Stadturlaub. Mit Parkplätzen sieht es eher schlecht aus, haben daher die sehr kostengünstige P+R Möglichkeit genutzt, sind nur zum Be- und Entladen zum Hausboot gefahren, danach haben wir das Hausboot am P+R Zeeburg (Zuiderzeeweg 46A) abgestellt. Die Parkgebühren einschließlich Straßenbahnticketes hat für 8 Tage zusammen 22,00 € gekostet, über die Modalitäten des P+R sollte man sich vorher im Internet schlau machen. Also, viel Spaß in Amsterdam, eine der schönsten, aufregendsten und interessantesten Städte Europas.

idéal pour découvrir Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Petite péniche lumineuse et calme sur très joli canal en centre ville.on peut tout faire à pied..tous les commerces sont à 5 mns et la gare centrale à 10 mns avec départ de tous les trams. Le propriétaire, qui parle bien anglais et français nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et est resté très disponible..

A voir le magnifique Rijksmuseum et le parc zoologique Artis, varié et passionnant, même sans enfants.Il y a beaucoup de petits cafés pour manger des en-cas, et des restaurants du monde entier dans toutes les rues voisines

Idéal pour 2 personnes, l'ameublement est moderne et fonctionnel, tout est impeccable.

Je recommanderai cette adresse à nos amis

Nous avons passé un séjour court mais très agréable.

Evelyne et Jacques

Car: not necessary

Cozy houseboat located near the shopping street with the most unusual shops and restaurants in Amsterdam.

This street has been voted the best shopping in the Netherlands in 2011.

Beautiful warehouses from the 17th century.

Time has stood still here.

Many markets and museums within walking distance.

Besides Jordan.
