Always book your houseboat reservations early, as the number of rooms on the vessels is limited, and they sell out quickly. Marie Anne's Houseboat Marie Anne's is around 10 minutes away from the Central Station and the rest of the city, but the short walk, or even shorter bicycle ride, is a small trade-off for the quiet and secluded atmosphere.

If you like fishing, reading and generally lazing around then a houseboat holiday could be just the answer. We have had several and cant wait to go on the next one in a couple of months. We stock up on a week's food, the niceties of life like chocolate and liquor, fishing lines, bait and take off for a week. If money is tight one of the beauties of these holidays is that they are a fixed cost. No extras being spent on retail therapy or extra dining and wining. Once you are on the boat that is it! We have found the boat hirers to be so well organised and have all the information you need. The boats do not go very fast so you don't feel threatened by speed. If you drive a car you should be able to handle a houseboat. Holiday Experiences The first holiday we had was a long weekend and we cruised up a river, stopping close to an island with a local hotel.

It got a bit rough and was wet enough that
