It would be hard to imagine a better place to stay in Saint Louis, Senegal. But the owner, Yves Lamour, only has four rooms, so don't delay making your reservation once you know you're going to visit Saint Louis. Yves also has a gourmet cook and unless your stay is an extended one and you really want to explore other restaurants, taking dinner with Yves and his Senegalese wife adds an extra benefit to your stay. The house is charming, centrally located, the Lamours are excellent conversationalists (he speaks English but prefers French), and the staff is warm, welcoming, and helpful. I also had Yves arrange a half-day walking guide for me, and he provided a knowledgeable one fluent in English. My room was cozy, with mosquito net, working a/c, spotless bathroom with tub and shower, and absolutely quiet. I doubt that there's any place better in Saint Louis.
