My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of June. Both La Digue Island and this guest house were our favourite place we stayed in the Seychelles. The service from the first email sent was exceptional. The room was beautiful, immaculately clean and the lovely garden outside full of fruits and singing birds. The welcome from Stephane was wonderful and for the younger female travellers, be prepared to swoon. Be aware that you will need to get hold of food if you are self-catering as there is now a welcome pack, but tea, salt and pepper etc. is provided. You may want to bring some cooking oil as this is not. It is very easy to get what you need as there are two supermarkets very close selling the basics.
Verena is not only a wonderful hostess but an exceptional cook. He grilled fish was amazing and the food she prepared was far better than the other considerably more expensive options we encountered on the island. Also you can buy some wine and eat on your terrace, which is a lovely and relatively inexpensive option in a country where eating out is very expensive. The positioning of the place is very good indeed. You are close to Belle Vue for a walk with a great view and an easily cycling distance from all of the amazing beaches. We cycled all around this beautiful island and loved every minute. The guesthouse arranged both our taxis to and from the jetty and our bike hire. They were so warm and hospitable and I very much enjoyed chatting about the island and the country with Verena and Stephane.
I have done a great deal of travelling and I can honestly say this place deserves its no. 1 spot on Tripadvisor. It is very reasonably priced for the Seychelles, especially for a little oasis so well run by such lovely people. – Stay here, relax and enjoy every minute. Feel from to PM with any additional questions.
