A place, a lake

40 miles from Antananarivo, there is a magical place. This place is called "Lake Mantasoa".

On the road to Toamasina, Foulpointe, Sainte Marie ... take a break in a unique place that has seen the finest hour of the first Malagasy industry about 150 years ago.

Whether for a weekend with friends or a week in family, Mantasoa Tour and its leisure and boating center will do everything to offer all the comforts and pleasures in an environment like no other.

On an artificial lake of 2,000 hectares and 95 miles of shoreline surrounded by pine forests and eucalyptus trees, with hundreds of kilometers of tracks, all kinds of stays are possible. Whether for relaxation in a perfect tranquility, intensive sports and trips by ATV or spend hours to go wakeboarding, water skiing or tubing ...

Mantasoa is of course the historic site where Jean Laborde spent most of his life and where he undertook most of his work in Madagascar. To him we owe this famous first industry.
