We stayed here for 2 nights and wished we'd stayed for longer. What a perfect spot for relaxing! You step out from the apartments right on to a beautiful sandy beach; if sun worshipping is your thing, you won't be disappointed! This is not a private beach although we weren't bothered by people passing by (and no-one ever sat on... More

I absolutely recommend this place :)) We were a travelling party of 3 adults and 3 children (aged 8, 6 & 2) and stayed for 6 nights at the Clef Des Iles in early June 2014. We chose this accommodation because of generally great reviews but also because of its location and its a self serving apartment which is what... More

The apartments are right on the beach so other people will sit on your steps. The pizza restaurant is right next door so other people will come by your door to get to there. The road is right behind the apartments but you won't hear the traffic because the noise of the waves is louder. The bathroom is downstairs and... More

Wonderful place -- we only stayed one night, but the decor is great and the beach is right outside your door....overall, it had everything we wanted in a self-catering apartment. We were greeted with fruit juice and fresh fruit on check in, and the staff was very friendly but unobtrusive. Beau Vallon beach isn't secluded or tranquil, but there are... More

The outside of Clef Des Iles is deceptive as you just step in off the main road but once inside it is like you have awoken in another world.We booked the Duplex with two bedrooms as there were 5 of us and they did not even charge for the fifth person.We opted not to get the breakfast each morning but...

What a great place. Very well set up. Sitting right on the beach. Each night we sat with a drink watching the perfect sunsets. Wonderful staff and owners who really care about their guests, flowers on the bed, offers of advice and bookings, platters of fruit each morning and even laundered our clothes! Beau Vallon was the best beach on... More

My family stayed here for three nights, May 30-June 2, 2013. Beau Vallon is a stunning beach, and Clef des Iles offered us the perfect set up to enjoy our (too) short stay. The property is literally on the white sandy beach, just steps from the water. Full kitchen, bathroom, and living room on first floor, with two bedrooms upstairs;... More

My new wife and I spent 3 nights here during our honeymoon and we highly recommend this place if you want a chilled out break that has paradise at the door. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, and stepping right from the apartment into the gorgeous soft sand of a magnificent beach is one of life's great pleasures.

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. It is located on a beautiful stretch of public beach. We didn't mind that but you do have people who go right by the front deck looking in at you as you eat your meals.If this would bother you , there is a breakfast bar to eat at... More
