Nestled in Hiva Oa, Marquesas Islands, made famous by painter Paul Gauguin and singer Jacques Brel who are buried here, on 1,5 acres of land, facing the Pacific Ocean, a comfortable "fare" (house in Maori) in the archeological valley of TAAOA.

The space
At the edge of the world, on an island many times visited and recounted by great sailors Mendoza, Bougainville and Cook, it is rare to find a clean and comfortable lodging to Western standards where you will be greeted by a Marquesian who will be able to guide you in your exploration of the island. The setting remains wild and beautiful, untouched by pollution.

Guest access
The different valleys of the island and their Maori arheological remains can be accessed by 4x4 car which can be rented on location, or by hiking with a guide. A small museum celebrating Gauguin and the cemetary where Paul Gauguin and Jacques Brel are buried. Also possibility to do scuba diving and deep sea fishing.

Other things to note
Tui, the guardian of the house can rent a 4X4 car and electric bicycles

I am married to a Polynesian wife from the Marquesas islands, more precisely the island of Hiva Oa, in the middle of the Pacific, one of the arhipelagos of French Polynesia. We have four children aged 24 to 37 and grand children. We live in Paris (France) as I am still working. We have recently built a small house on the island of TAAOA, in Hiva Oa, and wish to host guests as we can only spend 3 weeks per year at the moment. The island of Hiva Oa is beautiful and pristine. It was made famous by painter Paul Gauguin and singer Jacques Brel. We have travelled to many places.
