Madagascar will for always be in my heart!
We stayed at Casa Faly in August 2017, during a two week trip to Madagascar.
We were two families, nine people in total, and Casa Faly was the perfect size for our group. There were plenty of bedrooms, and bathrooms, for everybody.
The staff and the cooks were incredibly good. Which was great, because we had some kids and picky eaters in the group.
A driver picked us up at the airport with fresh flower lays from the gardens, and drove us straight to the property.
And then we saw the views. As the sun sets, at "golden hour", you sort of can't believe how lucky you are to be there, at the end of the Earth. It's just breathtaking.
We were at the house for 6 days. And that was a perfect amount of time (although I could have stayed longer!). We took day trips, via boat, to nearby sights. Nosy Iranja is a beautiful beach, about an 1:20 ride away. Sakatia is much closer and has a nice little beach and fishing village. Nosy Komba has lemurs and wildlife, and there is a Marine Park near it with great coral reefs and snorkeling.
One of the days, I went with the cook into Hell-Ville, to shop for dinner in the market, and that was great. To wander among the spices and super-fresh produce, and mangrove-mud covered crabs, is just a great experience. Local fisherman also walked up to the Casa with some of their fresh catch from the waters below - we had some amazing calamari thanks to one of them.
And the team at Casa Faly can arrange everything. They connected us with a local guide who spoke English, French, and Italian, and he arranged all of our outings. We had a masseuse come by one day. The refrigerator was stocked when we got there, with wine and beer, and all sorts of much-needed kid-friendly foods. We had to order Wi-Fi and buy a certain amount of it, but it was all pretty easy.
If you are going to Madagascar, you should go to Nosy Be.
And if you are going to Nosy Be, you absolutely should stay at Casa Faly. I have traveled all over the world and stayed at lots of nice places. But I have never stayed anywhere quite like Casa Faly.
(I just wish there was a way to give it six stars!)
It was a long trip to Nosy Be, but when we arrived have realized that every single mile was worth it. It is simply a fairy tale.
Beautiful house, relaxed atmosphere, amazing ocean view. The house stuff was extremely nice and helpful and pampered us in any way. This was the vacation I was looking for. And I am so sorry that the villa is already booked for the next August.
We (4 people) spent a wonderful week at Casa Faly. Everything worked out perfectly.
Stunning villa, amazing view, excellent food, great weather.
The staff was very well organized and very professional – they made our stay a pleasure!
Madagascar was quite a unique experience - the people, the nature, the animals, we loved it.
