One of the trademark features of Amsterdam is the number of houseboats that line canals throughout the city. Living on these boats is a completely unique Dutch experience. The thing I love most about houseboats is the viewpoint, right on the water. It gives a completely new take on the streets that we think we know so well. There's also a sense of freedom living on water.

A single site for all boats

Visitors can also share in this way of life by opting for a hotel-boat. The website houseboathotel.nl, is an efficient site that brings together all boat owners that offer overnight accommodation. With Amsterdam being the European city with the most houseboats, you'll be spoilt for choice. From houseboats in the middle of the city centre to floating villas in the countryside.

The owners are individuals who often love to share their passion for this type of dwelling and their environment. They are hosts as well as guides. By looking carefully, you can find real gems, like this houseboat that I visited in the city centre. All the comforts of a house with a roof terrace, a couple of steps from the central station yet moored in a quiet quay. Do you fancy finding out more?

I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, but I prefer to be followed on a bicycle than on Twitter. I love Amsterdam for...its little streets, riches, treasures and all of the spots where you can get a really good beer. Follow the guide! My little extra: discovering nature
