Peaceful garden paradise

5 of 5
One of three chalets and a larger bungalow set well apart in a beautiful tropical garden with wonderful views of the hills around Point Noire. Very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for a week's stay. Sophie and her mother in law Marie-Helene were wonderful hosts providing us with home-made rum punch and a basket of fruit and food to get us started. They were very knowledgeable about the area and helped us have a wonderful stay.
