I stayed at Maison du Pyla for about 3 weeks in total over my 3-month visit to Madagascar. I stayed there as part of a big group (taking up the whole place), in a small group, on my own, and as part of a couple. It really was the home away from home that allowed me to relax and re-charge my batteries. The rooms are comfortable, beds good (a little short for me, as everywhere!) and the general decor and atmosphere very homely. The hot power showers are great and the best I experienced in Madagascar. the rooftop terrace affords beautiful views at dawn and dusk. Mme Fanja is an amazing and very attentive host, and her cooking rivals some of the expensive restaurants in Tana. Any job that neeed doing, from ordering a taxi, making a packed lunch or doing the laundry was done. Her staff are very helpful and now are starting to learn English. I can't recommend this place enough, and when I return again later this year it will certainly be my base.
