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

We were looking for a reasonable priced accommodation but at the same time great location. We thought we would never find one, but luckily we found Clef Des Iles! A beautiful, quaint, simple property in Beau Vallon. You will really have island life feel when you stay here. There's a kitchenette if you wish to do a self catering or... More

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days in May 2012. We looked hard for accommodation and chose this place over the hugely expensive resorts. What a great decision!! The location of the apartments on the beach is second to none and it's handy to any number of shops and places to eat. There's fresh fish for sale at... More

I stayed in four different places in the Seychelles and this was my favorite.  Not a resort, Clef des Iles is instead an intimate place consisting of just four large comfortable bungalows set directly on a beautiful beach.  I loved seeing the ocean view from every room, and falling asleep to ocean breezes and the sound of the waves.  The...
