La Maison Gallieni

Antananarivo, Madagascar

Part of the Madagascar Holiday & African Safari Collection

Antananarivo, also known as Tana, is Madagascar’s capital city. It is perched at 1200 meters above sea level crowning a mountain range. Founded in 1625, Antananarivo boasts a rich historical heritage that is complemented by scenic landscapes covered in a large network of popular hiking routes. Known for its vibrant nightlife, Antananarivo features local live music at a variety of clubs and bars. Visitors can look forward to exploring the remnants of the French colonial era in the old heart of the city, as well as discovering ancient Malagasy palaces interspersed between the faded grandeur of these colonial relics. A melting pot of cultures, interesting markets and friendly people.

Maison Gallieni is located on the hillside in the historic district of Antananarivo, offering spectacular views over the city. Built in 1879 as the headquarters of the largest bank based in Madagascar, Maison Gallieni is now the official residence of the Consul of Monaco. There are only four bedrooms, each decorated differently and each with their own charm. They are all air-conditioned, equipped with a flat screen tv, safe, tea/coffee facilities, telephone and wireless internet access.

Within the boundary of this luxury establishment is a cosy lounge, open plan dining area, library, heated pool and small but tranquil gardens.
