Overview

About the property

House with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large pool, living room, and sea views

Way off the beaten track and far away from mass tourism, in a still authentic part of Senegal, this contemporary house (built in 2012) offers all comfort. It is carefully decorated, and has large terraces with sea and jungle views. The house is situated in the village of Palmarin, at the gates of Sine Saloum Natural Park. It is a truly unique location for discovering the fauna and flora of this part of Africa, in a calm and welcoming village. Short stays (1 night) are possible. This house is completely autonomous as to electricity (solar panels) and water (a 2,000-liter tank). Anna can serve you typical Senegalese dishes, and Réné will let you discover the region (boat trips, spotting hyenas in the jungle, fishing trips at sea, and so on). A relaxed and fun-filled holiday, whilst being in contact with the local population, awaits you!

About Pierre Pirard

Hello! In 2009, we fell in love with this small village of Palmarin. After acquiring a piece of land, building this villa became our project. It is now our wish to share our discovery of the authentic Senegal with other people.

Pierre Pirard purchased this villa in 2012

What makes this villa unique

The view of the sea and a large pool. The house offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and all of the European comfort in an authentic village!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in Senegal for more than a year and the trip to Palmerin was most memorable. The villa is AMAZING and just as pictured. You truly get a feel for being in Senegal while staying in this beautiful place. Pierre (the owner) is very professional and his home staff who will meet you (Anna and Rene) are wonderful. Anna makes wonderful food and Rene (the highlight of the trip) will be able to offer you some amazing adventures! We took the Pirogue trip through the Mangroves and saw beautiful birds, mangroves, and also took a tour through a village. We also went hyena spotting and YES it really was such. We saw 3 hyenas and was the highlight of the children's trip. It was especially nice to take the daily excursions and then come back to the villa and jump in the nice clean, fantastic pool! You can also walk down to the beach which is a few steps behind the house. All of the people of the village are so kind and welcoming, you feel as though you are part of the village yourself! It is quiet and safe. The ONLY downside was that the house does not have air conditioning and it got very, very hot at night despite having ceiling fans in the room (it is also the hottest season in Senegal - Oct right now). Thank you Pierre for helping us create some wonderful family memories!

Agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour dans cette maison très agréable en famille.

Maison très bien conçue et spacieuse pour 8, située à Palmarin, un petit village de pêcheurs très reposant. Immense piscine bien entretenue à disposition.La description est par ailleurs conforme à la réalité et le propriétaire, très réactif à chaque échange, donne des informations complémentaires et communique les bonnes adresses.

A recommander sans hésiter.

Palmarin

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons choisi cette maison et ce lieu pour un séjour extrêmement reposant, calme, simple, ensoleillé, sans autres bruits que les vagues de l'océan et les chants d'oiseaux ... la maison est spacieuse, confortable, lumineuse et bien équipée. Elle est en lisière d'un village de pêcheurs d'un autre âge sans voiture, moto, les rencontres avec l'accueil des habitants est agréable tout en restant discret. Très longue plage magnifique, piscine parfaite, poisson frais à portée de main ... un lieu de ressourcement pour qui aime le calme et l'éloignement de la vie trépidante !

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux nuits dans la villa. La route jusqu'à Palmarin n'est pas évidente à cause des travaux et nous avons dût emprunter beaucoup de piste sableuses. Grace à Google map et la vue satellite (seule maison avec une piscine), nous avons très facilement trouvé la maison.

Anna et René nous ont très bien accueilli et orientés durant notre séjour.

La maison est très bien conçue, la piscine impeccable, le tout très agréable.

Bref un excellent séjour... Trop court !

Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans cette villa. Beaucoup d'espace pour notre famille (3 enfants - chacun avait sa propre chambre avec grand lit!) et tout le monde a adoré la piscine pour nous seul. C'était une bonne occasion pour nous de découvrir une région du Sénégal qu'on ne connaissait pas. Balade en piroge dans les balongs - quelle belle surprise de voir les dauphins ! Le personnel était pret a nous aider avec tout. On avait quelques problemes d'électricité mais le propriétaire nous a aidé a régler cela tout de suite. Si on veut manger 'toubab', il faut penser a tout amener car la villa est située dans un petit village ou on trouve seulement la nourriture sénégalaise (qui est tres bonne d'ailleurs!) Le poisson qu'Anna a acheté pour nous a la plage était excellent et pas cher du tout, mais il n'y a pas un grand choix de légumes/salade etc disponsible dans le village. On va recommender cette villa a tous nos amis!

Car: recommended

To reach the village, follow the asphalt road coming from Dakar until the city of Joal, then follow the motorway for about 30 km. From M'Bour you can rent a car with or without driver. You can also hire a driver as soon as from Dakar Airport (about 130 km away). Near the house, there are two hotels with a good cuisine and very affordable prices. Numerous guides can let you discover this region of baobabs from a boat, a kayak, a carriage or a quad bike. Not to be missed: discovering the new islets where thousands of birds live and, depending on the season, assisting a traditional Serer-people fight: it is Senegal's national sport. However, the biggest pleasure is to watch the sunset from ashore, facing the sea, while having a chat with the local villagers. This is the place for holidays off the beaten track and away from mass tourism!
