Welcome to Soamahatony, near Antananarivo, Madagascar

            Barely 20 minutes from Ivato International Airport, Daniel And Sahondra, a French-Malagasy couple, manage a Bed and Breakfast in at home, in SOAMAHATONY. They will welcome you into an appeasing rural location (this is precisely what Soamahatony means), in the very heart of Madagascar. The bed and breakfast is a mere 30 minutes from Antananarivo, the capital town, and the means of transport are far from lacking.

            Curious minds and partisans of sustainable and fair tourism will be able to find here the alternative they are seeking instead of the average hotel: the bed and breakfast, with its five guest rooms divided up between the main house and "Villa Oliver"; the annex, on a 2 hectare country domain, will provide you with a comfortable and warm-hearted accomodation.

           Apart from the countryside strolls on the terraces of the domain, whose landscaping blends in with nature without denying the original work of the people who have occupied these lands for generations, ecotouristical tracks devised by Daniel and Sahondra in partnership with EcoTanana will immerse you into the history of Imerina.

             Thus, for a few hours' time, you will be immersed into the history and the natural and human environment which weave the unique charm of this ancient kingdom, which became a province, of inland Madagascar. You will have touched and witnessed a rural life and patrimonial heritages, through sharing and exchanging, which are really the sole mean through which sustainable tourism can be achieved.
