Peniche Barbara B&B - Paris unusual accommodation
The Peniche Barbara is an unusual type of accommodation in Paris, as you are on a barge located on the River Seine, and more like an apartment, it caters for up to four people, with a Jacuzzi, free sauna, free WiFi, terrace and breakfast available, for a tranquil break or romantic weekend.
About the Peniche Barbara
Classed as a boat and breakfast accommodation, this is like having a private hotel or apartment to yourself, but floating on water on the outskirts of Paris, which is spread over an impressive area 65 metres squared with a terrace of 40 metres squared.
The barge, which measures a length of 38.5 metres and a width of just over 5 metres, was originally manufactured in 1950 and used for transporting grains for cereals until 1998, then it was converted into living accommodations, offices, and an apartment, that you can now discover.
You will find that within the unusual accommodation it has a living room that opens with French doors onto a terrace and has a TV, kettle, coffee machine, fridge and microwave for even more added convenience, along with an exotic feel, which has been complemented by utilising the furnishings of La Maison Coloniale, and from this space you would go downstairs to the two separate bedrooms.

There are two bedrooms downstairs, that are accessed from the living room, one consisting of two single beds and a wardrobe, and the other consisting of a double bed, also has a design fireplace and an office area.
