This is a hidden paradise. We had a fantastic stay at francoise villa. His staffs are helpful. The multilevel living area and the panorama ocean view make it a perfect place for a large group gathering and celebration. Balian has the finest black sand beach in bali. We are surprised that not many tourist know about this part of the island. I highly recommend it.

Very nice stay in a gorgeous location.
We had a very nice stay in this beautiful and new renovated flat. On arrival we were picked up at the ferry and guided to the apartment. Clean and very light atmosphere. The sea view is extraordinary, especially on sunrise. I can absolutely recommend.
Francoise's place on Cheung Chau Island was exactly what we were looking for. The pictures sort of say it all and it is as advertised. Living right on the beach on the little island was a great change of pace from daily life in the city. The island has plenty of good food and outdoor activities, of if you want to stay in there is a full kitchen and sitting out on the deck watching the waves is a highly recommended way to spend the evening.
We had a wonderful stay at Francoise's ocean front apartment. Communication was effortless with Francoise, and she promptly answered any queries we had. We were met by Francoise's friend who took us to the apartment, and answered showed us where everything was. The living room has fantastic views, and when the bifold doors are opened up fully it really feels like you are on top of the ocean. Fabulous! The apartment was lovely and clean and the linen, towels etc crisp and fresh. We really appreciated a cold beer in the fridge and the fresh flowers. Cheung Chau is a fantastic escape from Hong Kong, and the plethora of delicious seafood restaurants on your doorstep makes it a wonderful getaway from the city, not to mention the great walks on the island and some really lovely little swimming coves. Loved it and would highly recommend it!
We had a really Nice stay at Villa Tao! the place is gorgeous with an amazing view and direct access to the beach which is quite unique. If you are looking for calm vacation, far form Kuta or Seminiak area to discover a different face of Bali, it is definitely the place. you can go for walks from the villa or rent surfboards! Francoise was very responsive and helped us organize our trip well...
We had a very nice stay at Francoise's apartment. The island itself is a refreshing change from Hong Kong's big city hustle and bustle. A very charming break which was enjoyed by the whole family.
Communication with Francoise was precise and clear. She arranged for someone to meet us at the ferry station on arrival and everything worked out smoothly.
The apartment pictures I have to say have been taken with a particularly good wide angle lens ;-) It does seem to appear larger than it actually is. Also, there's one picture of the recliner's with the red cushions - well that is not part of the apartment - we could see the pictured terrace from the apartment minus the chairs so the picture was probably taken when one of the neighbours had them laid out ;-) But I guess we can allow that much leverage as part of self promotion activities. Francoise could rightfully claim that picture is not shown amongst the primary pictures but amongst the general pictures about the island.
In any case I don't want to nit pick too much. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Francoise's beachfront property in Cheung Chau. The apartment was a relaxing getaway from HK Island for a few days.
The apartment is only a five minute walk to the main square where there's an abundance of delicious seafood restaurants and a great little bakery we visited quite often!
Our favorite part of the apartment was the alcove bedroom. It's netted so you can leave the patio doors open and fall asleep and wake up listening to the waves. So relaxing!
Wifi worked great. Bathroom plumbing is a bit slow but works fine. Shower water pressure is good.
Only feedback is that the floors were a bit dirty and we found some sugar ants in the kitchen. Not a big deal to us though. Also recommend bringing your own bath towel as only hand towels were provided.
Pica, a friend of Francoise's, graciously met us at the ferry and walked us to the apartment. She was also on call if we had any issues.
Definitely recommend this apartment if you're looking for a relaxing getaway!!
La villa Tao est un petit paradis à Bali. Très bien située, sur une magnifique plage de sable noire, elle est également très confortable. Le personnel est professionnel et souriant et Wayan, la cuisinière nous a régalés avec son muesli à la coco et ses spring rolls fait maison (petit bémol : les prix des repas étaient un peu élevés en comparaison aux bons restaurants du village). Nous avons passé 8 jours à deux familles (4 adultes et 6 jeunes entre 11 et 17 ans) et toute notre joyeuse bande à adoré les lieux : surf le matin, jeux dans les vagues, balade dans les rizières et couché de soleil au village de Balian. La vue sur l'océan depuis les chambres ou le salon reste pour moi la plus belle de tous mes voyages. Une adresse que je recommande à ceux qui recherchent l'authenticité des paysages, loin des spots touristiques.
Enfin, Françoise a toujours été une interlocutrice disponible et efficace lors de nos nombreux échanges avant et pendant notre séjour.
