Joffreville is apeaceful little town near Diégo-Suarez.. 

My review

The town was founded in 1903 by Colonel Joffre and used to be a garrison for the Foreign Legion, who enjoyed a fresher climate here than in Diégo-Suarez bay.

Nowadays, the little town of Joffreville mostly welcomes tourists come to explore the Amber Mountain National Park , whose entry is 3 km away down a bumpy road. Joffreville has 5,000 inhabitants and is just a sleepy village with some hotels and charming B&Bs where you can stay if you want to spend several days visiting the park, or if you just want to escape the region's heat during your trip to Madagascar.

Recently a cooperation between Saint Denis in Reunion, and Joffreville has led to the renovation of some public buildings, which has strengthened the links between these two regions.
