Availability and prices
Story

Five reasons why a houseboat holiday is ideal for small families, from comfort to convenience for an unforgettable experience.

Houseboat holidays are increasingly becoming a popular choice for small families looking for a unique and customised experience. This is why a houseboat holiday perfectly suits the needs of families of 2 or 3 people:

1. Higher quality and attention to detail

Small families, just like a close-knit group of friends, appreciate surroundings that are reminiscent of the warm atmosphere of home. That is why a well-appointed houseboat, with attention to detail, offers the warmth and comfort of a home, where the quality of the ambience becomes paramount. Imagine waking up with the view of the sunrise, or falling asleep lulled by the slow movements of the water, or sipping local wine at sunset. Imagine all this in an environment that combines home comforts with the uniqueness of a holiday on the water. Our houseboats are designed to make you feel pampered and comfortable, with spaces optimised for privacy and conviviality at the same time.

 

 

2. Value for money

When it comes to small families, the holiday budget must be adapted to the number of people. Our offers are designed precisely to meet this need, with value for money that makes a houseboat holiday accessible and affordable. Instead of worrying about overspending, you can enjoy every moment of your trip, knowing that you have made a smart choice for your wallet and your spirit of adventure. And then there are unique, one-off offers every month that will make your houseboat holiday even more worthwhile.

3. Decision-making speed and wealth of experience

You know, often during holidays you want to do a thousand things but time always seems to be short. The smaller group size, however, encourages faster decision-making, allowing you to make the most of your time. This results in a holiday with more events, activities and experiences to enjoy. You can quickly decide what to do each day, whether it's exploring a new cycling route, visiting a picturesque village along the shore, or simply enjoying relaxing aboard your houseboat. Each day becomes a tailor-made adventure for you.

 

 

4. The right size for maximum fun

No one wants to deal with the stress of manoeuvring a boat that is too big and cumbersome, with all the anxiety this can entail. Our houseboats are designed to be easy to manoeuvre, even without a boat licence, making it simple and pleasant for even the most inexperienced to steer. With a boat of the right size, the dialogue on board becomes smoother and the sailing experience more intimate and rewarding. It is the perfect solution for those seeking a balance between adventure and tranquillity.

5. Activities for Every Taste

Finally, the versatility of activities that can be enjoyed during a houseboat holiday is a big plus for small families. From romantic walks in Venice to cycling adventures along nature trails, from relaxing dinners on board to discovering hidden corners of Veneto and Friuli - there is always something new and exciting to do. And for those looking for more ideas, our article on holidays for couples and small families offers interesting ideas to make every day unforgettable.

A houseboat holiday is an experience full of comfort, adventure and customisation, perfect for small families looking for a unique and unforgettable way to spend their holiday.
