Well, where can I start? Travelled to Port Vila for 5 nights on business and stayed with Françoise (owner) at Le Maison Bleue. From when I arrived, to when I left, I was treated like royalty. Françoise was always at hand to answer any questions or give some advice on some things to do during downtime and managed to achieve... More

I stayed a total of 3 days on my way to and from Tanna, on the recommendation of a local. The breakfast of garden fruit and charming building were great, but the service really stood out. Françoise bought packing tape for me, was flexible with the time I left, and made me feel really welcome. I liked the convivial feel... More

I stayed overnight at the beginning of my trip and returned 3 weeks later for overnight again. Francoise tried so hard to make my stay enjoyable and even had my breakfast ready at 5 am the next morning for my early departure, and the continental breakfast was so good! My room on both occasions was large, clean and comfortable, and... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed 4 nights after our trip on Tanna! Access: Really easy to reach from bauerfield Airport by local bus (any vehicle with a red "B" on the mineral plate). Really easy to reach by foot from the city center. Just ask Françoise how to get to her, she'll explainn it all (french, english or bislama). Situation:... More

Food is great any time of year but now in the SP "winter" especially so with the bowls of fresh raspberries every day....always a pleasure to stay here, quiet and clean, good company, none of the annoying characteristics of hotels

This is by far one of the best places I've stayed at over my many years of travelling the Pacific. The hostess, Francoise, is absolutely lovely and so vivacious. She is a real treasure trove of knowledge about Vanuatu, and skilfully blends French finesse and elegance with ni-Vanuatu charm and hospitality. The view from the balcony as you eat your... More

Spent a week in Vila for work and a colleague recommended La Maison Bleue. I loved it! I am very fussy: although I do not need fancy, I need clean and comfortable. This was perfect. Four bedrooms (double beds, desk, side tables and lamps, small closet) with two shared baths and two toilets in two separate wings of the house.... More

If you're in Vila and want to experience real hospitality, freedom of mind and your own plans, be it for a holiday or for business, make the blue house this your sanctuary! Owner and host Françoise's legendary languid breakfast on the deck overlooking the harbour is a consistently delightful partner to the stunning sunrise. Guests have use of the upstairs... More

I have stayed here 5 times and will keep coming back! Francoise is a welcoming host and the rooms are always spotless, tidy and comfortable. Breakfast is incredible in an amazing setting - my favorite part of the day. I work on a remote island in Vanuatu and I am always grateful to come back to La maison Bleue!

Can not fault it. Had such a great time in Vanuatu and Le Maison Bleue made it all the better. The service was fantastic and we were so well looked after. Francois could not be more accomodating. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the heart of Port Villa.
