Introducing Joffreville (Ambohitra)
Its name evokes images of colonial pomp, and indeed, Joffreville, established in 1902, was once a pleasure resort for the French military. Today it’s little more than a small village with battered signs and plenty of small shacks. Still the place manages to retain a relaxing country ambiance and there are excellent views of the surrounding bays from all sides. It is also home to several excellent hotels. Most people use the town as a jumping off point to visit the fabulous and adjacent Parc National de Montagne d’Ambre.
