    Villa Yiri Suma

    Yiri Suma is all about art: Lucien, the owner, is passionate about African art and likes nothing better than to share his passion with guests via displaying contemporary Burkinabé works in the courtyard. The villa regularly houses exhibitions and cultural events, and the five spotless rooms enjoy their own contemporary decor and unique works.

    Cocooning

    Cocooning's great selling point is its delightful owner, Dalila, a French-Algerian woman who fell in love with Burkina and never left. She runs an NGO to help destitute families and it is her welcome, grace and knowledge that make staying here special (rather than the utilitarian rooms).
