Houseboat, your boating holiday, no license needed.
For over twenty years, our Houseboat fleet has been sailing the waters of Northern Italy.
Specialists in renting boats without drivers in the Venice lagoon, we offer you a unique opportunity: enjoying a cruise with your loved one(s), far from mass tourism. A totally customizable, healthy, and honest travel experience.
You will get in touch with nature, choosing what to do with your time: whether to visit a natural park or a museum, whether to dine in a restaurant or on a boat, or whether to stroll through the streets of a town or take a dip in the water. Because our travel options are opportunities to be experienced in the fresh air. They fulfill the desire for an active holiday, involving excellent gastronomy, secluded beaches, unknown islets, and historic villages. As well as a desire to explore another side of Italy.
Why organize a Houseboat holiday?
- To experience a different holiday, away from the classic way of spending summer days. To enjoy relaxing, sunrise at dawn, the lapping of the waves that rock the boat, a final glass of wine with your crew before going to bed in the evening, the slow flowing river, and the fiery setting sun sinking into the lagoon.
- For the adventure of driving a yacht, of challenging yourself, of rediscovering yourself as a captain and discovering unknown and isolated places; to live in nature, savor local customs and traditions, and find the adaptable spirit required by boat life.
- For the dynamism of boat living: you’ll never be short of new and exciting things to do, whether it’s crossing a navigation basin, researching your itinerary and sharing it with the crew, mooring the boat, or doing activities on land and in the open air. Kayak, standup paddleboarding and bicycle excursions are just some of the possible activities.
- To share unique emotions: sharing the boat’s space with loved ones and your closest friends, adapting your own rhythms to those of others, putting together a crew that will remain one even when the holiday is over. These activities create a strong bond between everyone who participates in the extraordinary experience.
Choosing Houseboat Holidays Italia means choosing an outstanding partner which manages its boats exclusively with qualified staff and performs all its own maintenance and technical assistance.
The itineraries are selected directly by the company, which also handles agreements with restaurants and ports, and publishes navigation maps. All this is possible thanks to our in-depth knowledge of the navigable areas of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, something we are very proud of.
