The Litchi Tree
The Litchi Tree, Amber Mountain National Park and Joffreville, Madagascar
This beautiful property was built in 1902 for Joffre, the Marchal of the town. Having stood empty for years, Herve has lovingly restored it to its former glory and into a boutique hotel.
The grand stairs lead into a hallway which is now an intimate dining area with whitewashed walls, minimal but beautiful carved wooden decorations, a fully stocked bar and small library and lounge off to the side. To the back of the house are the stable blocks that have been converted into five well-sized rooms. Each room has a double bed and en suite bathroom with large shower. The décor is elegant with striking colours contrasting with the white walls and simple but tasteful furnishings.
