Guests now have the chance to be lulled to sleep by the lapping of the waves on the river Seine … by spending the night aboard one of the two barges Le boudoir de Serendipity and Johanna.
Loving couples looking for ideas for a romantic break can opt for these floating hotels, which offer intimacy and an unusual setting. The barges and yacht each offer different atmospheres onboard, adapted to their clients moods and wishes. Moored close to the Musée d’Orsay, the barge Johanna has a welcoming rustic setting with lacquered wood panelling dating back to the 1930s. It has two comfortable cabins and offers the advantage of being centrally-located in the capital. Situated in the Paris region, at Asnières-sur-Seine, Le boudoir de Serendipity offers an unusual setting and eccentric bedrooms, created by a young Breton, passionate about interior decoration.
The barge Johanna offers the exceptional experience of admiring one of the finest views of Paris from a floating bedroom. Moored alongside the Léopold-Sédar-Senghor footbridge, a few metres from the Musée d'Orsay, the barge offers guests two cabins with all modern conveniences, with a double bed, shower room, private toilets and Wi-Fi connection. A small room, decorated with wood panelling dating back to the creation of the barge in 1936, welcomes residents for breakfast.

Le boudoir de Serendipity
In English, the term ‘serendipity’ is the capacity for finding marvellous things not looked for. Marie chose this word to invite guests aboard the barge to enjoy new and enriching experiences. Moored at Asnières-sur-Seine, the little boat has been fully converted by the young Breton and her husband.
A passionate decorator, she has chosen to mix contemporary and antique furniture to give their barge an unusual and timeless atmosphere.
Le boudoir de Serendipity has three bedrooms each with its own unique atmosphere, created by the mix of second-hand furniture, perfumed candles and bunches of flowers. The salon and the terraces by the water’s edge welcome guests in the morning for a gourmet and romantic breakfast.
