Guestbook comments from the owner

“The villa at La Mangrove was fabulous - even better than the photos and description. We were 1 minute from the beach and 1 minute from the pool. This was a great house for small kids, and a great spot too. Really could not have been happier!”

Catherine our full time maid is wonderful.She works from 9-4, 6 days a week and cooks lunch,cleans the villa,does your washing and ironing and generally spoils us all.She is available for further babysitting at a small fee. If you would like evening dinners created also this can be arranged. Nothing is too much trouble,really. She just makes the holiday even that bit better!! The gardener comes in every day to maintain the garden and to water. A driver can be arranged for any excursions you wish to make. You can really relax the minute you arrive and just enjoy your holiday to the full. The top Hotel Lamentin is just some 150yds along the beach with bars and restaurants,thalassotherapie and a marina with fishing club offering world class deep sea fishing....Senegal is reknowned for its big game fishing.

Prestigious beach villa at La Mangrove,Saly,Senegal

Small asylum you come back always with pleasure

  • 5 of 5

It is our fifth stay in the wonderful villa in Saly and, like previous times, we are leaving with recharged batteries. Many words can be written about La Mangrove Village, but nothing compare with the reality: well arranged equipped and maintained property, well-cooking and kind housemaid, huge swimming pool, ending with sandy and clean beach - those are not expat's legend. When you stay in Senegal, visit in that place is a must. Each time we visited Villa Nala, we experienced our stay other ways and never got enough, always finding tranquility and balance which couldn't be achieved in other places we had visited in Senegal. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is already based in Senegal and frustrated with the day-by-day reality as well as to people who consider short adventure and want to taste the Senegalese culture, cuisine and landscapes from their best side.

Beautiful villa in Saly

  • 5 of 5

My parents and my family of four stayed at this lovely villa in Saly, Senegal. It is located close to the beach and pool and there are many grocery stores nearby. The rooms are well appointed and there is a very nice outside space. The best part of the villa is the lady who cooks and cleans as part of the price of the villa. She is very efficient, cooks delicious meals AND does your grocery shopping. It was very relaxing to her there. We will definitely go back to the house.

Beautiful,comfortable villa set in a peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the villa the minute we arrived,the exterior was so inviting and the interior offered very spacious,modern,quality comfort.We felt very much at home in this tastefully decorated villa which was very well equipped,the owners had obviously put alot of thought into the comfort and requirements of their guests.We enjoyed the calm of 'La Mangrove' and the wonderful,private,safe beach at a stones throw.The luxurious communal pool of 'La Mangrove'offered an alternative for a quick dip

.A perfect destination in the sun, to get away from it all without having to go 'long haul'.Suited us completely and hope to return with our children and 2 grandchildren,who'd love it there.Lots of choice for eating out and a well equipped supermarket close by.My husband enjoyed an early morning coffee while getting fresh bread from the local bakery.Everyone very friendly and Catharine, the maid and cook was a real treasure.loved her local rum punch and delicious meals.She was so helpful and kept everything spotlessly clean .

There was plenty to see and do in the region,but we just loved lazing around the villa and on the beach reading and just relaxing in this little corner of paradise.

Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa combines exotic surroundings with the chance to totally switch off from daily life. Equidistant from the beach and the pool, the weather was just perfect! Also had the chance to go fishing Senegalese style - well worth it if you have the opportunity - and riding along the beach was breathtaking. House lovely and clean, well-equipped and agents very helpful. An amazing two weeks - would love to come back very soon!

Great place for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday, the beach, location and villa with sytlish decor and furnishings where all first class. The villa is just a short walk from a great uncrowded beach and hardly any hassle from locals wanting to sell goods. Beach bar for drinks and snacks. The pool at the villa complex was uncrowded and better than many of the hotel pools that we saw nearby. Local shops and stalls supplied all we needed for our 2 week stay. We ate at the adjcent hotel which was superb. Most people spoke French with very little English so a good phrase book is a must. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this villa to friends.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to come for a relaxing get away with a young family. The beach and pool were fantastic for the children and the villa itself was very comfortable, well designed and tastefully decorated. Shops etc were also accessible. We'll definitely come again!
