From the owner

Kontanno Villa is a large basic block built villa with 3 double bedrooms (one is a twin) all with en suite shower rooms. All the beds have mosquito nets.There is a generous living dining space and a large basic kitchen with a 3 ring gas hob and a refrigerator. All the floors and surfaces are tiled and the furnishings are simple.The villa is in a rural location, adjacent to an eco lodge with a good restaurant, bar, plunge pool.and friendly staff. The villa is about a 1km from vast deserted sandy beaches bordering the warm Atlantic. It is owned by the founders of a nearby charitable farm project which receives all the rental income. Visitors are welcome to visit the farm but amongst activities possible are bird watching expeditions, various excursions, fishing trips by boat or from the beach and even aerobics sessions can all be arranged to enhance your experience. But many find the hammocks and the beaches and the garden sufficient to enjoy their Gambia experience.
