For lovers of authenticity and a real homecoming. The Saloum delta is certainly one of the most amazing and beautiful natural regions of Senegal. Creeks, forests, mangroves, lagoons, sandbars form a rich variety of landscapes not to mention the wildlife and birds Saloum National Park, the small villages of fishermen and welcoming inhabitants.
Eco-villa for rent with an area of over 250 sqm was built by a French architect very oriented sustainable development. It is located in a very beautiful landscaped park of 5000 m² (feeling of space, rare in rentals in Senegal where the land is of the order of 1 500/2000 m²) directly in 1st line in board of a large bolong (inland arm of the sea), on the most beautiful part of the island of Mar Lodj, "quiet paradise where life is good" according to the Guide du Routard. It should be noted that this island is an island without cars and where the inhabitants, very attached to the traditions, still move there in cart on horseback, which makes its charm.
The villa has been built in an ecological spirit (solar panels, natural ventilation regulated by the winds blowing on the island, local materials like shelled soil picked up on the beaches by the Senegalese women, serer boudins for the decoration of the ceiling, sliding panels in frake allowing a total or partial opening on the nature ...) and integrates perfectly in the superb natural environment. It is located in Fandi Madior in a landscaped area with purely local species (roniers, coconut trees, bougainvillea, mango trees, ...). Built on 2 levels, you can, from the large terrace of the villa, enjoy a panoramic view of the bolong (rising sea inland) and the beautiful landscapes of Saloum without any opposite. You can, at your leisure, enjoy the passing time in the sun loungers or in the hammocks in the shade of coconut palms, go to discover on foot or by horse cart the beauties of the island, or go fishing or sailing at heart Saloum to discover its fauna and flora. If you are sporting a kayak 2 places is at your disposal to discover in silence the places inaccessible by boat. For a pleasant change, a beach volleyball court is available and a set of boules. The beach is accessible directly from the garden and unlike the ocean, the waters in the bolongs are calm and warm all year round, ideal for children.
Unlike many places in Senegal, you will not live in isolation in villas surrounded by walls and cut off from the local population. The contact with the inhabitants of the island is very simple and always friendly exchanges, respectful and friendly.
The rental of the villa includes a complete cleaning before the arrival of the hosts and after their departure as well as the maintenance of the garden realized by a team on the spot.
In additional services, our local contacts can organize, if you wish, your transfer from the airport to the villa as well as your excursions or fishing parties in the area. If you wish, to make your stay as relaxing as possible, meals (breakfast / lunch / dinner) can also be cooked on site or delivered directly to the villa (a list of additional services to the rental of the villa is available on request). We would like to point out that we do not take any commission on these additional services.
