This room contains a double bed. It is designed for 2 people but it is possible for 3 people to sleep in. The room has a shared bathroom, a kitchen, a living/dinning room, and a veranda.
In Sector cinq, a quiet neighborhood not far from downtown Bobo Dioulasso you will find a beautiful villa with charming custom made furniture, equipment and decoration, a big lush garden with nine mango trees, medicinal plants, and three friendly dogs.
In our home you can have as much privacy and peace as you need - a welcome respite from often too intensive African street life.
The villa offers a double air-conditioned room (+1 person), a double ventilated room (+1 person), a kitchen, a bathroom with toilet, a huge living/dining room with a sewing/medicinal plants corner, a large veranda with a view over the garden, and a big terrace with a view over the neighborhood.
The bungalow is hidden in the greenery of the garden, with a ventilated double room, a handcrafted outdoor bathroom with a French toilet.
The veranda is equipped with a dining table, as well as a double bed. A perfect place to eat, chill out and rest.
The terrace is covered with a straw roof and equipped with a double bed (+ 2 persons).
The villa can host 10 to 14 persons, 6 - 8 in the rooms, 2 - 4 on the terrace, and 2 on the veranda. You are also welcome to pitch your tent in the garden and overland travelers are welcome.

I am from Slovenia and I have been living in Burkina Faso since 2012. I live in a beautiful house with a big garden and have decided to share the extra space with people who want to visit Bobo-Dioulasso.
Since 2007 I have spent most of the time in West Africa and have travelled extensively with a 4x4 mobile home around Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Guinea, and Burkina Faso, where I decided to settle down for a while.
I am an anthropologist and I do many different things. I work on various researches and applied projects, write scientific and popular articles, take photos and conduct interviews. I like to travel and as a skilled off-road driver I have crossed most of the West African dirt roads and the Sahara. Among others, I used to work as a translator, a journalist, an editor, and a tourist guide.
I am interested in medicinal plants and natural pharmacopeia, and I love to exchange my knowledge with other people. I adore African textiles. I have created Shamanic, a fair to wear label made of African fabrics that assist African tailors, seamstresses and fabric producers to earn a fair wage.
I am fluent in Slovenian (my mother tongue), Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, English and Russian. My French, especially African version, is not bad at all ;) I speak some German and Italian, and manage basic colloquial phrases in Darija Arab. I am learning Jula, the language of Bobo-Dioulasso region.
