Can't rave about it enough. The venue is perfect; the staff extremely accommodating; great food; fabulous in every way. And a very unique experience. Worth going out of your way for.
Nothing. Everybody in our group LOVED everything.
Unique and tasteful settings, amiable staff, optimal service.
The whole experience was better than could ever be expected.
This an incredible place. It is a beautiful barge moored on the Seine in the charming village of Samois-sur-Seine. The accommodations are lovely rooms and upstairs a very large seating area with a bar where guests can look out at the river or enjoy sitting in front of the fireplace. The proprietors make fun & merriment with each encounter. They are also gourmet chefs. We had mussels which they allowed us to watch them prepare. They were the best we've ever had. Our visit was an incredible experience! We hope to return next year.
Wonderful start to our holiday, took a dinner option on board - no regrets! Can only recommend! Hosts very attentive and humorous, overall comfort beyond imagination, spacious room with great shower and breakfast that filled us for the rest of the day ☺
Owners refused to sell us their dog
First mate very helpful, kind and a great chef. Made my kids feel right at home. Also very informative.
The captain's drunkenness scared my kids and ruined the stay. Service recovery was impossible. There is a lovely hot tub that was filled with bugs and the captain refused to turn it on for us. There is a top level patio with furniture to enjoy a view and the outdoors, but we were told that it was off limits due to the overcast weather (no rain whatsoever).
It was very clean. The place of the boot was great. But the best part is the service and the frendship of the boat team.
Peaceful relaxing surroundings, nothing too much trouble for Steve and Kay and beef bourguignon best we've ever tasted. Wonderful accommodation, looking forward to a repeat visit for a cruise.
The weather! And the roads in Samois sur Seine are dreadful. Neither of which can be blamed on La Bonne Amie.
Our stay at La Bonne Amie exceeded all our expectations, and we can be quite picky. We have never felt so welcomed at any hotel anywhere. The rooms, the common areas, the decorations, the service, the breakfast,the two staff and the dog were all top-notch. Thanks for a memorable experience from Anders & Katarina from Stockholm
What a great experience and a real hoot. Fantastic start to our holiday in France, with great hosts who could not do enough for you.
Nothing to fault
The facilities and the welcoming approach of both Steve and Kay were warm and exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble including assistance for touring the area.
Absolutely nothing ! However, would make the comment that they need to highlight the on-board meal options more - Steve is a great chef and we had a delightful farewell dinner on the barge
Everything! The quietness of being moored at a very picturesque location after four busy weeks of travel, the wonderful dinner and breakfast, friendly and charming host and hostess.
Nothing.Only negative was that we couldn't stay longer. Next time we will plan our trip to do a cruise too.
Everything - rooms were that of 5 star - staff fantastic - Steve and Kae were exceptional .- breakfast was great - best of all was the evening meal - 4 couples eating a great French meal - mainly French spoken but not a problem as the hosts were so good -- this was our best night on a trip of 4 weeks If asked to mark it 1 to 10 I would be foreced to give it a 20 -- it was so different and so relaxing -- if invited take the dinner option you won't regret it
Only one thing -- we weren't staying another 2 or 4 nights
the owner was so nice and treated us very well! He is so passionate and houmerous! and the breakfast was fantastic. You can take it anytime, just need to tell the owner:) and the view is so good! we enjoyed so much there!
Wonderfull location, close to Fontainebleau and Vaux-Le-Compte. Steve is an amazing and very warm host.Great room, beautifull bathroom and very nice living rooom. A place to return!
The hosts are very nice people, doing their utmost to make a vacation on La Bonne Amie to something special for their guests. We will certainly consider doing this again.
Nothing worth mentioning :-)
All was good
Very warm and welcome arrival, excellent evening meal, extremely comfortable accommodation, unique, restful setting, nothing too much trouble.
The peace of sleeping in the countryside on a barge on the Seine with swans gliding by, excellent hosts including a lovely friendly dog, a hearty breakfast (we wished we had taken advantage of the evening meal option, although there are restaurants nearby on the river bank) , drinks in the evening onboard in the balmy early October weather, and the fantastic unpretentious village of Samois-sur-Seine where everyone plays music like its most famous past resident - Django Reinhardt. Nearby is Fontainebleau.
What is there not to like?
Unique location with every attention to detail-gourmet dinner, peaceful float, elegant rooms with king size comfort and pure luxury linens, awakened to the view of swans floating lazily by in the morning mist-not to be missed as a superb place to stay.
אירוח מעולה. זוג מנהלים מענין ומדהים. לא לוותר על ארוחת הערב המוצעת לכם. חדרים מעולים . חוויה מעניינת ומדהימה. רצוי להשאר יותר מיום.
Staying at La Bonne Amie was the most pleasant surprise that we have ever encountered while traveling in France over the past thirty years! The over-the-top friendly, entertaining host we had in Steve made for a relaxed atmosphere while the beauty and intimacy of the boat's decor and surroundings made for the best casual vacation one can ask for! We spent four nights at La Bonne Amie and would have preferred to stay longer. The "crew" was friendly, polite, yet always highly professional and our host, Steve, an entertainer and "raconteur par excellence". We are highly reccommending a stay at La Bonne Amie to our friends in Paris, to our friends in the States and to our collegues throughout Europe. Really can't stress what a pleasant surprise awaits you if you stumble across this gite on Booking!
That our stay was a short one!
Very pleasant hotel, very family. Located on the river. Perfect for couple who are looking for romantic place. The host was amazing (even made us sandwiches, since we arrived late). We will come back!
Steve the owner is a most helpful person, and his staff are very friendly and helpful. I had a problem with my car while I was there and he went out of his way to take care of us and solve our problems: really a first rate welcome, and attention to our comfort and well being.
Warm reception. Immaculate accommodation. Peaceful river setting. Good restaurant nearby. Convenient for fontaibleau. Good breakfast. Excellent value for money.
Nothing. Everything was better than could be imagined
