Story

Discover an enchanted summer with Houseboat Holidays Italia: adventures and flavors between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, aboard dreamy houseboats.

The summer season has always been considered the season of vacations, love, fun and adventure. A time of long days in the sun, endless walks on the beaches, new forever friendships, starry nights to sing our loves to.  And while the sun plays hide-and-seek with the horizon, tinging the sky with shades of orange and pink, the day gives way to evening. It is the time for laughter that rises in the air, toasts that echo through the warm summer nights, guitars that accompany tales of unforgettable days. The summer evening is an embroidered fabric of stories, of new encounters in the moonlight, and of glances that seek each other out under a sky full of stars.

During a houseboat vacation, it is possible to experience all this and much more, for a summer you wish would never end.

Enchanted Itineraries Between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia

Every summer is a story waiting to be told, and every story needs a route to follow. Houseboat Holidays Italia knows the art of charting these routes, creating itineraries that wind through the beating heart of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. These regions, rich in history and culture, offer hidden treasures waiting to be discovered, where the past blends with the present, and each stop becomes a chapter to remember in one's personal diary.

Imagine exploring these wonders aboard a houseboat that reflects your wants and needs. Whether you are looking for an intimate boat for two, a love nest where you can share moments of complicity with your loved one, or a larger vessel capable of accommodating up to ten people, perfect for shared adventures with friends or family, you will find the ideal answer in our catalog.

 

 

Adventure and Freedom: From Pedal to Paddle

A vacation with Houseboat Holidays Italia is a hymn to adventure, a free chant that resonates along the riverbanks and spreads on hot summer days. Navigation is just the beginning of a bigger tale, a story that extends beyond the calm waters of the river, inviting you to explore the land.

Imagine getting on a bicycle in the morning, when the coolness of dawn still caresses the awakened nature, and riding along shady tracks, hidden from the world, that meander through the green heart of our regions. Paths that lead to forgotten villages, golden vineyards, and landscapes that open up unexpectedly, giving pure and genuine emotions.

That's not all, because we offer freedom with no limits: on the paddleboard, you will have the chance to dance on the waves, to feel the rhythm of the water beneath you, to explore inaccessible coastlines and secret corners of our fascinating Adriatic. It is a dance between you and the water, a silent but profound dialogue that enriches the soul and refreshes the body.

 

 

The Flavors of the Territory

After the sun has painted the sky in its hottest colors, and the day's adventures have slowly settled into your journal, it's time to sit back and enjoy the authentic flavors of the place.

With Houseboat Holidays Italia, the end of each day brings the promise of a unique and unrepeatable culinary journey.

From traditional cuisine that tells stories of Veneto and Friuli, through recipes handed down from generation to generation, to dishes that reinvent gastronomic heritage in a modern way, we have selected the best of local flavor for you. Every bite is an experience, every sip a memory that blends with the rhythm of the waves.

It doesn't matter where your adventure has taken you: whether you're anchored in a quiet bay or docked near a bustling fishing village, our delivery service guarantees the convenience of enjoying these delights right aboard your houseboat. There's no need to go ashore to find a restaurant when the most authentic flavors can reach you where you are, allowing you to dine under the stars or dine with a view of the water stretching to the horizon.

 

 

Are you ready for this adventure? Because we can’t wait to welcome you aboard, to share stories, discoveries and moments of pure joy.

We are waiting to give you summers that will remain imprinted in your memories, just like the waves that leave their mark on the sand, before retreating under the light of a summer sunset.
