      wonderful staff, room at least 10 star plus

      Ross & Bianca are truly magnificent in evry single way possible. I am in business myself and believe that the small things count which is certainly the ethos at Villa Afrikana ! There experience in the cruise line industry shows and they certainly make you feel more than welcome. I would literally travel from the UK just to stay at Villa Afrikana. When i left it was fair well not goodbye as i will be back.

      Great hospitality, food and art”

      View from bedroom is fascinating, breakfast is delicious and beautifully served, room and building decor is stunning

      Local art is collected and celebrated at Villa Afrikana. Local artists are regularly invited to decorate the house and rooms. The rooms are large with wonderful views to the inlet. You can easily let time pass here sitting on the balcony watching the water. We were made very welcome, with drinks offered as soon as we arrived, but also the owners were happy to chat and share their genuine enjoyment of the area. Breakfast on the balcony was unforgettable!

      The property and the staff was first class. Nothing was too much effort for the team. The breakfasts were great, the complimentary afternoon tea/cakes and the evening wine were excellent touches and also a great way to meet other guests. Location wise you definitely need a car, however if that's not an issue I would 100% recommend this place.
