  • What a great experience!

    We stayed as a couple for 2 nights in a tente, Alexandra and Thomas were amazing as they catered to our needs and questions before and during our stay. The lodge is as beautiful as the location! Very peaceful! The food was perfect mixing local and the french cuisine we know at home . A true success story! Only one regret: We could not adapt our vacations to stay longer.

  • Simply amazing

    Amazing, beautiful, friendly, simply great. We were supposed to stay only two nights nights, ended up staying four. The accommodation is great, and the food is delicious! Loved everything! The fresh water lake is perfect for a morning paddle, with a nice walk down the lake. The guide was great. It is also good to see how much the community has benefited from the lodge.

  • A Special experience

    Had a lovely stay at Dunes de Dovela! Beautifully built cottages that blend nicely into the surrounding natural beauty. Spactacular sea views, miles of forested surroundings for nature walks, and gourmet food too! Above all, Alexandra and Thomas were wonderfully gracious hosts.
