About the property

360° views on the lake in cosy cabins (5 Double & 1 Single) with warm personalized welcome by the owner

Unique B&B next to the Jet d'Eau fountain with a view on the Rade. Enjoy its quiet deck one step from downtown. Breakfast is included in the price for the overnight stay.

If you have time, we recommend investing in a one day or longer cruise on Lake Geneva where you can visit lakeside sites and local restaurants of your choice thanks to our Zodiac. Navigating on the Floatinn means you are taken in charge by a friendly, multilingual crew who can cook for you and your friends or family on board having planned with you in advance. We welcome your ideas to organize your dream trip. For more ideas or to take a virtual visit, go to www.floatinn.swiss

About Floatinn

Former physiotherapist, hit by osteoarthritis, I had to move from my first passion to my second one: sailing. I love to meet new people and enjoy welcoming and cooking and taking care of details that make all the difference.

Floatinn purchased this boat in 2014

Why Floatinn chose Geneva

I dreamed about a way of sharing my passion of sailing with others and give them the really wonderful experience of living, eating and sleeping on the water. In the past, I had spent a beautiful time on the Mediterranean sea with a disabled man named Rolf who owned a catamaran and who I assisted with everything on board. This came just at a time when I had to think about a new job. My family supported me totally in what seemed like a crazy project, that is, bringing a luxury catamaran to my hometown lake.

What makes this boat unique

Sailing is like flying and feels really special. Playing with the power of nature - the wind, the waves, the changes in the weather makes for a lot of joy. But especially on a catamaran, sailing is even more special - the space is open, even immense, and free and makes sailing a real pleasure, in a secure and confortable environment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Un accueil extrêmement chaleureux de Jean-Luc et de Mitsuko, des repas préparés avec amour, des petits déjeuners exceptionnels, un cadre hors du temps, un sommeil réparateur, doucement bercée par les flots, franchement, que demander de plus ? N'hésitez pas, vous passerez sur le FloatInn des moments magiques!

Isabelle



L'originalité du lieu, le port de plaisance des Eaux-Vives à Genève, un cadre sensationnel dans la rade de Genève, accessible en bus à deux pas du centre. Lever et coucher de soleil sur le lac, merveilleux. L'accueil chaleureux et discret du couple, la propreté et l'équipement rationnel et moderne de la chambre. Le tout est très original. Le petit déjeuner copieux avec des produits sains (confiture maison). On peut partager la passion du bateau, de la voile, du Léman. Enfin le prix est très attractif, introuvable ailleurs à Genève. Alors qu'attendez-vous pour embarquez ?

Bruno



Il se trouve que tous les hôtels à prix accessibles étaient complets ce jour-là à Genève et je me suis rabattue sur un Bed & Breakfast qui s'avérait être un yacht luxueux dans le port de Genève. Ce fût un séjour de haute qualité à tout niveau et une experience insolite et inattendue. A recommender à tout ceux qui veulent sortir des chemins battus en matière de logement à Genève.
