Story

Discover romantic houseboat holidays for couples and small families. Intimate experiences and enchanting activities in Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia.

Houseboat holidays are not just for large groups or large groups of friends; they are also perfect for couples and small families looking for an intimate, romantic and adventure-filled experience. By expanding its range of boats, HOUSEBOAT HOLIDAYS ITALIA now offers boats with one or two cabins, ideal for sailing with two or four people.

Romantic and Intimate: The Ideal Holiday for Couples

Imagine a romantic getaway with your partner, where every day takes place on a stage of calm waters and breathtaking views. Our smaller boats offer maximum privacy and a cosy ambience, perfect for unforgettable moments. Not only are they easy to steer and manoeuvre, but their sleek and streamlined design ensures a pleasant and relaxing sailing experience. The beauty of a houseboat holiday lies in its flexibility. You can choose to dock in a secluded spot, where you can admire the sunset in privacy, or in small harbours to explore the most characteristic locations on the Adriatic coast together. Smaller boats, in particular, are perfect for these explorations, giving you access to lesser-known and more intimate places.

 

 

Romantic Activity: Venice and its Wonders

One of the most magical experiences for couples is exploring the city of Venice. Strolling hand in hand, getting lost in the picturesque alleyways and enjoying an authentic dinner in the small cicchetteria along the canals are just some of the romantic activities you can enjoy. Imagine exploring the Serenissima from your houseboat, discovering hidden corners and unexpected treasures of this unique city. Docking in Venice you can explore the city on foot or by gondola, immersing yourself in the romantic atmosphere of its canals. Every alley and square in Venice hides a story, anecdote or legend, making every walk a fascinating adventure. A must-see is the Bridge of Sighs, one of Venice's most romantic symbols. According to legend, lovers who exchange a kiss under the bridge at sunset will experience eternal love. This ancient bridge, with its history and evocative architecture, offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable moment with your loved one.

Bicycle Tours: Nature and Discovery

For couples and small families who enjoy physical activity and contact with nature, cycling is an ideal option. Following different routes you can immerse yourself in nature, crossing picturesque landscapes and discovering the local flora and fauna. Whether you ride along the banks of a peaceful river or explore the green hills of Friuli Venezia Giulia, each ride will be a journey of discovery of new beauty.

 

 

Candlelight Dinner on Board

After a day full of excursions and adventures, what could be more romantic than a dinner of local fish, accompanied by a glass of prosecco, under the starry sky? On board your houseboat, you can organise an intimate candlelit dinner, enjoying the sunset in the background and celebrating your holiday in a very special way.

Relaxing moments or aquatic adventures?

Among the activities, don't forget to take some moments of pure relaxation. Lie on the deck of your houseboat, letting the sun's rays caress you, or read a book in total tranquillity, lulled by the gentle movement of the waters. The freedom of having a houseboat all to yourself offers an unparalleled sense of peace and serenity.

For couples or families looking for a bit of a thrill, why not try activities such as kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding? Explore the calm waters together, discover hidden coves or simply have fun in the water, adding a touch of adventure to your holiday.
