Relais Des Plateaux

Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

La Varangue £££££

  • Madagascar
  • City

This lovely old creole style house oozes colonial charm with the brightly painted shutters and national flags on the outside a colourful contrast to the whitewashed walls and corridors. Vintage cars parked outside and the cool, darkly wooded interiors lit at night by hurricane lamps complete the picture, but its location, hidden away down a steep lane next to the Presidential Palace makes it feel even more exclusive.

Maison Gallieni £££££

  • Madagascar
  • Boutique

Maison Gallieni is located within the Consulate of Monaco’s building in a side street along the middle of town, with good views across the city of Antananarivo. With just four rooms, enjoy being treated like a visiting dignitary – it’s not every day you get to stay in an Ambassador’s home, particularly one as stylish and welcoming as this. As you enter the cool, spacious lobby you notice the impeccable design and contemporary furnishings that make this a very special place indeed. With attentive staff, fascinating portraits and a number of interesting pieces of art adorning the walls of the main lounge and dining room upstairs, this is a place to relax and unwind enjoying a moment of serenity amidst the buzz of Antananarivo.
