Excellent choice if you want to stay in Mahé. The cottages are cozy, very clean and location is stunning. The beach itself is great and the position in Mahé is also good if you want to hang around the southern beaches. They are run by a British/Seychellois family who are always very helpful and welcoming. The cottages are self-catering and... More

This place was our first stay at one-month trip to Seychelles.

We stayed in March 2015. Good sized semi detached one bedroom chalets - no noise or interference from other chalet, even on verandah. Views due east onto the beach, worth getting up early for the sunrises. Can swim at low tide (just), good snorkelling, especially if you venture (at own risk) over the reef at half tide as the tide... More

My first comment to my husband when we arrived on this beautiful (family owned and run!) property was, 'Paradise Found!' From the beautiful (natural) garden areas to the gently sloping, long and secluded beach...all the way to the sweet giant tortoises that enjoy a daily neck rub, everything was perfect. The wonderful owners have thought of everything when it comes... More

We just returned from an amazing four days at Chalets d'Anse Forbans. The location was perfect in a quiet part of Mahe with a beautiful beach and excellent snorkelling. The chalets were clean and comfortable with everything we needed for self-catering, and the owners were really helpful and made sure that we enjoyed our stay. Thank you ! Janine, Inspired2Explore
