BETWEEN THE SEA
AND THE RIVER
GRAND POPO'S AUBERGE
Grand Popo is located by the sea, halfway between Cotonou and Lome (TOGO), 80 kms on each side. The hostel is made of old colonial buildings that we renovated. Everything is set in a large park, the beach on one side and the track on the other. The vegetation is made of Australian pine trees, bougainvillea, banana trees and coconut palms.
Open all year
THE GRAND POPO’s AUBERGE HAS
- A restaurant with a terrace on the beach
- A large hut for group meals and other events.
- A building with 12 rooms on the ground floor with a direct access to the garden on the north side of the track.
- A building by the beach with 8 rooms (4 downstairs and 4 upstairs). A large terrace goes around the building upstairs and on the ground floor.
- 2 bungalows with 2 communicating rooms.
The bungalows and rooms on the ground floor have A/C and are equipped with TV and Canal +.
- A shallow swimming pool of 60 m2, so that children do not go in the sea as it is very dangerous + a paddling pool for the little ones.
Trips are organized in motorized small boats to go to the "Bouches du Roi" to visit fishermen’s villages or simply to picnic in the coconut plantation, where the lagoon flows into the sea.
