We stayed for four nghts in the utterly lovely Jamm, and wished we had stayed longer. The hotel is beautifully restored, and decorated with Yves Lamour's own collection of art, books and textiles. The pictures can't do justice to the feeling of space and the calm tanquility of the courtyard and veranda. The food is without doubt the best we had over two weeks in Senegal, with sumptuous breakfasts and memorable dinners in the evening (with relaxed multilingual conversation!). The warmth and generosity of Yves Lamour and his family and staff makes the experience of staying at Jamm much more like staying with old friends or favourite relatives than at a hotel (although we were always free to do exactly what we chose). Don't miss the opportunity to visit the local textiles maker and shop, which gives the best variety and best prices in all Senegal.
