We're delighted to feature this well-established hotel, sitting directly above the stunning beach of Cap Skirring in southern Senegal.

Our Expert Opinion

"We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant overlooking the stunning beach below – an impressive range of French-inspired dishes were available along with an equally appealing wine list."

- Karen, Product Manager


What we love

  • The soft white sand stretching for miles.
  • The sense of tradition – the hotel has been lovingly run by the same family for generations.


Good to know

  • As the à la carte menu is so extensive, this property is sold on a bed and breakfast basis.
  • There is no swimming pool, however you hardly notice as the main appeal here is to lounge under a palm-tree on the fantastic beach.


Escape to the sands of Senegal

This family-run property has long been popular on the French and Belgian markets, and it's easy to see why. As well as the warm welcome that you will receive from owners, Françoise and Christian Jacquot, it enjoys a sought-after beachfront location along the palm-fringed expanse of white sand found along the coast of Casamance. 

The hotel's elevated location makes the most of the fabulous views, and a sun terrace gives you space to enjoy the stunning vistas whilst soaking up the African sunshine. Although the hotel doesn't have a swimming pool, the Atlantic Ocean is never far away, and the beach can be reached by descending a series of steps. Here you will also find the beachside restaurant nestled under the palms, ideal for a lunchtime bite.

Dine and reside in quality and relaxation

Start your day with breakfast overlooking the palm trees through to the sands below, or for a change of scenery, take breakfast on your private room terrace surrounded by tropical gardens. The main restaurant is poised above the beach, offering both indoor and outdoor dining with its vast terrace. It's after nightfall that this area comes alive, with subtle lighting and candles creating an inviting atmosphere. You won't be short of choice with an extensive, French-inspired menu, accompanied by a selection of wines. You should expect to dine in the hotel as there are limited options available in Cap Skirring itself, however we do not offer the half board table d'hôte menu for purchase in advance (although it is available as an option locally) as we believe it's best to make your own selection from the à la carte menu.

Rooms at La Paillote are located in single storey bungalows dotted around the tropical gardens in the form of a traditional village, complete with Senegalese thatched diola roofs. They are comfortable and well equipped without being luxurious, complete with a mini fridge and air-conditioning.

Exploring and experiences

La Paillote can be found approximately 2km from the village of Cap Skirring which offers a chance to witness African life with a small selection of local shops, bars and restaurants as well as its artisan centre. Local excursions such as boat trips through the mangroves and 4WD trips into the Casamance hinterland can be arranged through the hotel. A 4-hour easy road transfer brings you here from The Gambia; however we would not recommend making the journey on your day of arrival. A stay here would work perfectly as a twin-centre holiday combining The Gambia and Senegal, enabling you to witness different regions of West Africa.

As in any destination, we would not recommend walking in remote areas after dark.
