Top 5 Unusual Boat Accommodations in Occitanie: Perfect for Families

Family Adventures: Unusual Boat Accommodation in the Heart of Occitania

Looking for a unique, memorable and super fun experience for the whole family? I have specially selected for you accommodations such as an unusual night on a boat or péniche (a typical barge) moored or sailing. This unconventional type of accommodation is ideal for families with children, offering an exciting and unique stay surrounded by water.

Imagine the adventure of sleeping on a houseboat, yacht or cabin on the water, where spending a night rocking with the waves will be a refreshing and fun experience for the little ones. If you are looking for something special and adapted to your needs for your next family vacation, an unusual night on a boat is just what I recommend.

Close to these exclusive, unusual and fun accommodations, you have many charming villages to visit such as Aigues-Mortes, Pézenas, Sète or Uzès with lots of activities to enjoy with the family.

What is a Péniche?

A peniche is a type of river boat traditionally used for transporting goods on the rivers and canals of France and Belgium. They were originally long, flat cargo boats, designed to navigate narrow, shallow channels. Over time, many peniches have been transformed into habitable boats or converted into houseboats, restaurants, hotels or even event venues.

These adapted boats offer a unique living experience, combining rustic charm with modern conveniences, and are popular with those seeking unusual accommodations or a different living experience on the water.
