Doug368's review nicely encapsulates our experience too. The villa is in a quiet and reasonably remote setting, but if you're fit and don't mind a 15 minute stroll to Vieux Fort it's a perfect location. Brigitte readily offered us lifts when she was going to the beach/on errands, so we never felt cut off despite not having a hire car.
Beautiful house and well-equipped kitchen. Mai house (cheaper) rooms compact but nicely laid out. Chalet and garden rooms also available. Dogs were no problem at all - not smelly or intrusive so fear not on that count. Brigitte is very friendly and welcoming; yes, she's hoping to sell on the business and is open about her struggles to maintain the high standards at the villa. We found it refreshing to stay with an accessible and helpful hostess and would recommend a stay here 'away from the madding crowd'.
