Green Houseboats

Continuing the French theme, we couldn't visit Paris without walking along the Seine to take in some of the boats. You can't get more central than the Port des Champs Elysees, the most exclusive, grand and undoubtedly expensive area of Paris, yet in admirable French character, the river bank marina has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site which houses some delightful houseboats.


 What an address and with views of the Eiffel Tower, good on the French and shame on our local authority who have recently supported the eviction of some of the old established Hamble houseboats.



Nice to see the residents of Port des Champs Elysees taking environmental issues so seriously, there were wind generators, solar panels gardens and even a living green roof.
