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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

We do love a good conversation, especially a humorous one. On the other hand we appreciate independency and self-initiative.

Other things to note

We have acupuncture, acupressure and bioenergy specialist and friend, wonderful Laure Darga-Condec, who can come and give you a treat at your wish.

We organise individual spiritual journeys/healing with local shamans.

We produce natural cosmetics from local oils, shea butter, medicinal plants and essential oils. It is possible to get a product done by measure which will meet your specific needs.

With us you can buy our Shamanic labeled clothes made of West African fabrics such as wax (Fr. 'pagne'), danfani, damast (Fr. 'basin'), etc.

Spela is a wonderfull host. Her house is spacious, but still cozy and feels like home. Beautiful veranda with a view on her green garden is one of the best features and absolutely perfect when you decide to take a breake from lively markets of Bobo and just play lazy

Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina FasoJoined in March 2014
Špela User ProfileŠpela is a superhost.

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.
