Guest House of Domaine de Florette

domaine de florette nosy be

It was not until 2006 that the Domaine de Florette really took off and opened up to tourism with the construction of the guest house, a house made of local materials and 100% self-sufficient in solar energy. Thus, during your visit, in the heart of the island of Nosy Be, lost in the middle of nowhere, you have in a magnificent double room with panoramic view of all comfort, hot water, music, DVD, library, etc …

The Domaine de Florette is made for lovers of nature and history, a guide is directly “included” in the room, so no need to budget each excursion! Indeed, with more than 10 different circuits the question could arise. There is something for every level, from 1 to 8 hours, these circuits will be the opportunity to learn and discover a multitude of information on the endemic flora and fauna of Nosy Be – Madagascar.

In addition they are not simple guides of the forest, they are guides lovers of their stories, and they will share it with you with great pleasure, so you will learn the legends stories (hard to differentiate sometimes) of Nosy Be which are transmitted orally in Madagascar.
For example, did you know that chewing strangler fig leaves made it difficult to deliver while the use of the stems could save you a court case? That the lengomantsiny leaves hardened the teeth and strengthened the gums, that the woodforia fruticia was the equivalent of viagra, and many others, but I let the guides introduce them to you.
