About the property

2,000 m2 of greenery and birds, the heart of a privileged site, quiet and safe

For the design of the villa on a plot all in length, it was used a architect who built the center, combining contemporary styles, Oriental and traditional local.

Very functional, it has a large living through bright, with large volumes, adjoining 3 airconditioned rooms with bathrooms.

Upstairs, a mezzanine provides access to the circular terrace with an unobstructed view of the residential area quiet and wooded and the neighboring hotel with the ocean and the lagoon in the background.

Open to the living room by a bar, the kitchen is fully equipped with modern and latest technology.

On the facade, sheltered terrace access full foot in the pool of 4 x 8 m, with its shelly beach, pool house and outdoor kitchen with sink, barbecue and stove.

Behind, a shaded and vegetated patio leads to the two independent twin boxes with bathroom, WC and Rochelle, each able to accommodate 2 adults and 1 child / teenager. Each box is air conditioned.

In front, pool side and lodge, the main gate gives access to the gravelled parking. Behind the huts, a 50-meter sand court opens onto a locked gated gate in front of the hotel, providing access to beaches within walking distance, and to the village on foot, by bike or by taxi. The space provides good insulation against the nuisances of the neighboring hotel while enjoying the benefits. It lights up at night automatically and is well suited to petanque and ping-pong around its central baobab.

A hedge bougainvillea closing the set for maximum security and privacy.

Junior, goalkeeper, lives on site discreetly at one end of the property. It manages the plantations, pool, solar energy, stewardship and can provide useful tourist tips. From Monday to Saturday, his wife Danielle takes care of the housework, the linen, the dishes and, on request, meals.

Water stored in a reserve is distributed under pressure, immune to cuts.

A solar installation supplies the essential electrical needs (fridge, water pump, lighting, swimming pool filter ...) and makes it possible to ignore without any nuisance the possible load shedding.

Smoke detectors are operational at strategic locations.

Une maison enfin une villa exceptionnelle avec un charme de dingue

Nous sommes venus à 3 couples avec un bébé de un an et nous avons passé 10 jours magnifiques.

Mais ce séjour n'aurai pas été aussi merveilleux si Danielle et Junior n'avait pas était là, mis à part les plats succulents que Danielle nous faisait à notre demande, leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité était parfaite....

Nous y retournerons c'est sûrrrrrrr

Nous avons aimé tout:

- maison: excellente, conforme les normes Européennes;

- situation: proche de probablement la plus belle plage du Sénégal;

- la communication souple avec le propriétaire,

- et surtout Junior en Daniella et ces enfants.

Si nous retournons à Sénégal, cette villa sera notre 1er choix.

Wij verbleven hier 9 dagen en hadden hier een heel fijne tijd.

De villa is groot, zoals beschreven in de advertentie, en ruim voorzien van alle comfort.

De communicatie met de eigenaar verliep bijzonder soepel.

De ligging van de villa is uitzonderlijk gunstig. Vanaf de tuin tot de mooie lagune is het nauwelijks 100 meter wandelen. Nergens in Senegal hebben we een mooier (properder) strand gezien.

Op het domein wonen ook Junior (tuinman), Daniella (huishoudster/kokkin) en hun twee schattige dochtertjes. Wij vonden het bijzonder fijn om contact met hen te hebben en Daniella kan echt heel goed koken.

Kortom, wij kunnen deze villa 100% aanbevelen.

Ce fut un réel plaisir …......

  • 5 of 5

Nous avions séjourné 15 jours dans cette villa en 2013 (5 personnes) et avions grandement apprécié cette villa spacieuse, bien aménagée, calme, avec comme seul bruit le gazouillis des oiseaux et par dessus tout, la gentillesse, la disponibilité et le sourire de Junior et de Danielle, celle-ci nous ayant régalés avec sa cuisine authentique.

C'est donc avec enthousiasme que nous sommes revenus cette année et cette fois pour trois semaines. Ce fut un réel plaisir de retrouver Danielle et Junior ainsi que Natacha et Élisabeth, leurs adorables petites filles. Ce fut comme si on s'était quittés la veille... et nous avons retrouvé nos discussions toujours aussi agréables. Leurs conseils sont toujours aussi avisés et à nouveau tout à été fait pour nous rendre le séjour agréable. Quel ravissement pour les papilles de retrouver également les bons petits plats préparés tous les jours par Danielle … ses filets de sole marinés, ses fatayas extraordinaires, ses calamars (+++) et bien d'autres plats, dignes de la cuisine d'un restaurant …

Nous avons également de nouveau très apprécié la proximité de la maison avec la plage où nous avons fait de belles ballades au petit matin, à la rencontre des pêcheurs qui rentraient après une nuit en mer et auxquels on peut acheter directement du poisson. N'hésitez pas en outre à demander à Junior de vous mettre en contact avec « le capitaine » avec qui vous pourrez partir pêcher...

En conclusion, nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison que nous recommandons pour les raisons évoquées ci-dessus.

Owner's Response: Merci d'avoir pris sur votre temps afin de formuler cette appréciation dès votre retour. Nous sommes ravis que votre deuxième séjour s'est aussi bien passé que le précédent. Votre avis sur la villa nous fait plaisir car il confirme que le choix initial de son emplacement et les efforts prodigués en permanence pour l'entretenir et l'améliorer sont payant. Cependant, celui relatif à la prestation de Junior et Danielle nous touche particulièrement car à nos yeux l'accueil et l'intendance sont des points aussi importants. Finalement, vous avez bien fait de braver le virus Ebola et espérons avoir le plaisir de vous recevoir de nouveau. Guy et Amy
