We had a wonderful stay at the Chalets d'Anse Forbans. The Chalets are very well equipped and the location is just perfect. We felt very pleasent during our whole stay. There are 2 things that are improvable in our point of view: 1) We stayed for 10 nights. We kindly asked to check out at 11 instead of 10, as... More

Very clean and well designed "chalets" located on the beach; this self catering camp is very well maintained and the family running these facilities is very fair and agreable. A car is needed to go to restaurants in the vicinity. My next time in the Seychelles will be there...A quite area with space and not overcrowded

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

Views due east onto the beach, worth getting up early for the sunrises.
