I cannot understate how beautiful Santeur Vanille is. The bungalows are magnificent and spotlessly clean. Marie-Claude and Guillaume and all members of the family and staff cannot do enough to make your holiday a fantastic experience. We have stayed there on 5 or 6 occasions and it only gets better on each visit. Growing fruit on the site makes it...

Arranged on two spacious floors, the shop offers jewellery spices and toiletries. I bought a lovely necklace made of paper and there are many unusual hand made items. The staff allow you to browse on peace, which is a much welcome change from other sellers in the town who tend to follow you at round the shop , which is...

I travelled here with my friend Fanny. We loved the view and the Mangoes and the beautiful hosts. Guillaume is so helpful and his mum too. English speakers will love this!! I certainly did before Fanny arrived. The lodging is creole style and breezy and secluded. I stayed in a lodge and would recommend this and picked mangoes each morning...

We spent a few days of our recent honeymoon in La Reunion here and wish we had stayed longer. The villa was beautifully clean, comfortable, looked fantastic and was well-equipped. The setting was also great: a working fruit plantation which we were given fruit from to enjoy. We used the kitchen to make Creole meals from a Reunionaise cookery book,...

Beautiful setting. Lovely owners. Fantastic fruit bowl on arrival that lasted us all week. Lodge has fantastic views over the sea and are very well equipped. Beautifully constructed. Supermarket is 10 minutes walk and the beach is about 30 minutes walk.

It should be the 5th time that we stay by Senteur Vanille. We love it. If possible take the lodges with a beautiful view on the sea and between June and October, you can observe the wales from the balcony. Booking is no problem, the arrival was also good and if you have any questions, you can just ask Marie-Claude...

Rarely I felt so much at home so far from home. We - a family of 2 adults and 2 kids - spent 10 days at Villa Creole, one of the bigger Creole style houses of Senteur Vanille. A beautiful villa, with perfect garden, view on the bay, supernice veranda and everything you'd like to have at home, including all...

We stayed 5 nights. The booking was very good, and no problems with contacting Marie Claude to confirm the booking. We arrived late at night, it would be difficult to find without a navigation system, but we had no problems. On arrival we were brought straight to our lodge, it was beautiful and very clean. The next morning the view...

Having arrived late at night, courtesy of kind pick up by owner's son (in his pick-up!), we entered a gorgeous room+kitchen (must see pic). Next morning woke up to open-deck patio/balcony (equipped with a table, chairs and a sun chair) for view over a forest of beautiful palm trees, with the sea in the distance. This chalet is utterly wonderful....

We stayed twice at Senteur Vanille and we have always enjoyed it. Don’t be put off by pathway to reach the property, at the end you will find a hidden gem. Having experienced both the lodge and the studio, here are our feedback. Both, lodges and studios, are well decorated, nicely furnished and well equipped. They offer a quiet and...
