It was quiet and peaceful along the canal. We were within easy reach, 15mins walk of a large park , and 10 mins beyond that you are... More

Unique - Special - Wonderful - What a perfect spot to be...walking distance to town, on the canal, with a comfy bed, and enjoying a terrific host and hostess who made the first days of our adventure in France simply terrific! We were welcomed warmly, and the food (a different pastry each morning, along with juice, bread, yogurt with strawberries... More

What a great find Peniche Amboise is, for something a little different when you're staying in busy Toulouse. This converted barge is eclectic and welcoming to guests. The rooms are small but comfortable and the en suite was spotless. The communal lounge area was great fun. Breakfast included coffee, juice, flan, yoghurt, brioche and bread. The host was friendly and... More

The peniche is very well located to walk into town, we loved the setting, breakfasts were delicious and the owner, Gladys Vincent, was very kind and helpful. We almost missed our plane back because the taxi we had ordered never showed up and she chased the airport bus... More

There is something beautiful I never saw before: the movements of the water of the Canal du midi reflecting on the ceiling at night through the round windows... Believe it or not: there is no need for more for a very romantic moment. But actually, they provide much, much more: apart from the basic services of any classy hotel (they... More

Took my parents away for their 40th anniversary and wanted something a little different - Peniche Amboise was perfect. The owner is lovely, very attentive and the peniche is beautifully furnished. Breakfast is a treat with cake, pancake, yoghurt as well as bread, jam and hot drinks. There was sufficient parking right next to the boat so very easy to... More
