La Ferme du Pêcher Gourmand

Inn in Plaine-des-Cafres

This modern auberge (farm inn) is run by a friendly couple and is surrounded by a pleasant garden. The five adjoining rooms are a bit of a squeeze and bathrooms are tiny, but the setting more than compensates. There's also a stand-alone bungalow, which offers more privacy, and two larger cases (Creole-style houses) that are ideal for families.

Bonus: there's a widely acclaimed on-site restaurant – it's worth opting for half board.
