Intimate tropical atmosphere at Kaz Koz-Kozé …

“The house where we chat” where the hammocks are swaying alongside the banana trees, coffee, kaffir lime and other passion fruit, or under the brightly colored veranda.

A spa and a massage table are at your disposal.

Located at Ermitage les Hauts, 6 km from the lagoon and its beach and 400m above sea level, La Kaz Koz-Kozé enjoys the sunshine of Western Reunion at an altitude ideal to escape the heat of the coastline of the austral summer and the winter chill of July-August. Here, no need for air conditioners or heating.

The courtyard

The garden of Genevieve and Andrew, the “court”, or the “kour”, as the Creoles say …

Geneviève and André are naturalists, amateurs but passionate. Naturalists is a big word if it evokes the university degrees of the field “nature” that they do not have, but it is the right word if it qualifies a panel of values ​​related to the protection, the valuation and especially to the love of the nature of Reunion, values ​​that animate them and will have great pleasure to share with you.

Metropolitan, having made the choice to take root in the land of Réunion for 23 years, Geneviève, recently retired, was an environmental technician at the Reunion National Park and a former mountain guide. André is an avid ornithologist and hiker. Together, they “root” also many plant species in their garden, favoring native species and endemic (existing only in Reunion) adapted to the climate of their living space.

They will be happy to show you their “courtyard” where indigenous and endemic as scented wood, damsel, red latanier and other benzoin or wood of the arnette, compete with exotic passion fruit, avocado, lemongrass or frangipani.

The courtyard, the garden, the veranda of Geneviève and André, it is also a space of expression for their friend storytellers, actors, musicians, singers or poets, a place of “kozman” (“causement”), of where the name of the cottage. Their anchorage in the land of Réunion is illustrated not only in the roots of trees they plant in their garden, but also in the provision of their court for different artistic expressions. Thus, it may happen that one evening during your stay, one of their storytellers comes “koz-kozer”, a way to approach the Creole culture of Reunion with his talk and his stories.
