Heritage home and delicious croissants ”

The rooms had tall doors and the bathroom was huge. The staff were courteous and friendly, breakfast was brought to your room. The owner allowed us to have a late checkin at 2pm. They were very helpful and it’s in white town. Perfect place. It’s run by a French lady, the quality is amazing.

What a gem! ”

Villa Helena is both beautiful and calm, taking you back to French colonial times. The staff are very friendly, and will provide plenty of recommendations. The breakfast is an attraction in itself to be enjoyed in a quant backyard. Highly recommended!
