What to visit round and about Madagascar's capital

"B&B-Chambre d'Hôtes familiale Villa V Antananarivo Antsobolo (ISPM)" is situated close to the route nationale RN2 where it leaves Antananarivo's suburb of Mahazo direction East coast / Tamatave (Toamasina).  

The RN2 winds through a beautiful hilly landscape until it reaches the Rainforest of Andasibe after 2 hours drive. There you can watch lemurs in their natural habitat  (best very early in the morning).

A visit to the Zoo of Zimbazaza gives a glimpse at lemurs right in the centre of Antananarivo. A still better inlook offers an excursion to the Lemurs Park at 30 km distance on the RN1 where you can watch 9 species living freely in a beautiful botanic garden of 5 hectares . 

At 25km north of Villa Vergissmeinnicht the Royal City of Ambohimanga, summer residence of the queens of Madagascar is not to be missed. A visit to the Croc Farm close to the Ivato airport is also entertaining.

The city centre with its hustle, colourful markets and great ethnic diversity is reached in less than 30 minutes.

The list of places to be visited in the city itself  is long enough to keep you busy for a good few days. The most popular ones are the markets of Analakely and Andravoahangy, Lizzy's art boutique, the Royal Rova, the Palais de la Reine, the Pirates Museum etc.

While in town you may have lunch at the fashionable  "Café de La Gare", a beer in the "Buffet du Jardin" (Hotel Colbert)  or an afternoon tea on the terrace of Hotel Pallisandre from which you have a view over the Analakely market. The greatest view over the city and the surrounding hills offers the terrace of the Grill du Rova (best at sunset). Before returning to Villa Vergissmeinnicht at night listen to some popular live-music in the Hotel Glacier, Analakely (don't stay too late, never mind the girls, be polite and beware of pickpockets - watch the show and enjoy  great malagasy rhythms, dance and music). 

At Villa Vergissmeinnicht Family Guesthouse Antananarivo-Antsobolo (ISPM) Madagascar you can relax, enjoy a bath in the sun and in the pool, or have an espresso on one of the café terraces, listening to music or answering your emails while sitting in the garden under the shady branches of a jacaranda tree.

You are welcome to order your food at any time during the day. If you feel like eating out we will assist you in reserving your table at one of the renowned or fashionable restaurants of your choice.

For those interested in leaving a trace: a mining pit where men work like in ancient times is in walking distance and granite products made for export may be seen and ordered in an exposition nearby. A visit to one of the 18 villages for the poorest erected by  AKAMASOA the humanitarian organisation founded by Père Pedro can be arranged. There is also a small school to be visited next door which takes in about 200 children who otherwise would be on the streets. Last year it received some help through donations organised by former visitors of Villa Vergissmeinnicht.
