Located in white town this charming villa was a blessed isle of isolation from my hectic life. Simply like bed the decor and the proximity to the ocean meant every day I awoke to the gentle crashing of waves in the shore, in one word, blissful.

I did not stay here, but I desperately wanted to during the recent Good friday weekend!

Either this place has gone out of business or their communication system is seriously... More

If you want spend some quality time with your family and friends, this is the place to be. The heritage villa is a very private one with only 3 rooms, one lounge with classic furniture and a small Courtyard. We occupied 2 of the rooms (Jasmine and Frangipani), so the villa was almost ours. The property is very well maintained,... More

In the middle of the heritage town, Villa Christophe is a very good guest house. The rooms are interestingly designed, I stayed in Jasmine (it has a bed on the loft). They served a simple breakfast and the staff was very helpful. Overall a great experience!

We got here a little late - around 8PM at night so things had quietened down in the French quarter by then. The housekeeper Babulal was waiting for us and upon escorting us inside, we were charmed by the place! It's not a huge place, but its so well done and of course you get the feeling of peace and...

When we checked into this hotel, we checked into a 3 room home where each room had a different style and character. We choose the room with the split level. Since only 6 guests stay at a time the villa is very private and quiet. Its in the main french quarter with access to lots of dining options
