Villa Osumare is good. I think that the owners have made an effort to make it really nice. It had everything I wanted: A clean room, air con, a safe, a fridge, access to a reasonable taxi driver, friendly staff and, something that is becoming increasingly important, Wi Fi. Oh! And of course very reasonable prices.
Some people might find that it’s away from the main part of Flic-en-Flac but I thought the location was very nice and peaceful. It’s an old 60s house that for me has a lot of charm, it might not suit people who like Atlantis but then there are plenty of soulless resorts further up the beach for people who want to spend an extra 100 or so euros a night.
People I knew who saw Villa Osumare and were staying at other places all said the Osumare was the better than were they were staying which says it all really.
+ There was a mosquito net. I only got bitten at other places in Flic-en-Flac.
