“Average location, No privacy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I recently spent a week in Villa in Green with my husband. We were met off the ferry by Marcus who organised our bike hire for the week. We were then escorted to the house with luggage taken care of in the tricycle and after about a 20 minute ride we arrived at Villa in green. On arrival we were quite disappointed in the lack of privacy and lack of garden. Next-door neighbour is a carpenter and the constant noise of sanding timber became annoying. The villa is in the middle of other local houses and the approach to the house is down a bumpy track (not good on bicycles in the dark with no lighting!) There are other houses being built very close by.
The house itself is attractive and the bedrooms and bathrooms comfortable.
It lacks a few extras to make your stay comfortable and homely such as a sound system and books and games. The washing machine was not available for use. Fans would have been an advantage in the main living area.
Sabrina the housekeeper is excellent and was helpful on several occasions and nothing was too much trouble.
The villa is close by to Source d' Argent beach however a daily fee of 100 rupee is required.

“Bella ma da condividere con le formiche”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015
Google Translation

Abbiamo soggiornato qui sei giorni io la mia compagna e una coppia di amici.
La villa è molto grande potrebbe ospitare otto persone tranquillametnte,e ben arredata e dispone di quel che serve,anche se la lavatrice e sotto chiave qujndi inaccessibile,la cucina e un po da organizzare e purtroppo piena di formiche.La casa e situata in una zona tranquilla circondata da case di seychelliani a meno di un kn dal mare e circa due dal porto,consiglio il noleggio della bici.
Sarebbe stato un plus nella valutazione un connessione wi-fi.
La digue e molto bella e nel complesso è stata una bella esperienza.
La persona con cui ho prenotata la casa è stata utile e disponibile,anche se avrei preferito pagare con carta di credito sul posto.Spero di essere chiaro e che la recensione sia utile

Salve Daniele, grazie molto per il pronto feedback.
Sì, a La Digue ci sono anche le formiche, come nella maggior parte dei paesi di fascia tropicale, noi usiamo l'insetticida (purtroppo) e risolviamo il problema. Non siamo d'accordo nell'effettuare una disinfestazione totale, primo per non inquinare l'ambiente, secondo perchè il problema, che per noi non è mai stato tale, è fondamentalmente circoscritto alla zona cucina. Se si lasciano i cibi ben chiusi ed anche i rifiuti isolati, la situazione è perfettamente sotto controllo. Nello spazio esterno alla cucina c'è anche il bidone grande per i rifiuti e possono essere isolati lì.
Noi siamo privati, non abbiamo possibilità di pagamento con carta di credito come in un esercizio commerciale (albergo/pensione), l'alternativa al bonifico bancario, che è stata la modalità scelta da Voi per il pagamento, è pagare tramite Paypal.
Cordialmente.
Marcella Nardi

“Bellissima villa in una location da cartolina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
Google Translation

Abbiamo soggiornato in questa villa per un periodo di 8 giorni. L'abitazione é esattamente come da foto illustrate sul sito, situata in un contesto residenziale e tranquillo, a 10 minuti di bicicletta da La Passe e a 5 dalla spiaggia di Anse Source d'Argent. La Sig.ra Marcella, sempre molto disponibile, ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni necessarie prima della partenza mentre in loco siamo stati assistiti da Aldo e dalla figlia Stefania, che si sono prodigati per prenotarci il taxi da/per il porto all'arrivo e alla partenza, ci hanno fatto trovare le bici a casa, e ci hanno prenotato diversi ristoranti. Adatta per il soggiorno di due coppie (camere e bagni separati) o come nel nostro caso due famiglie con bambini (in totale eravamo in 7). Non possiamo esprimere un giudizio sul servizio di housekeeping, in quanto, durante il nostro soggiorno, la governante era in maternità. Sciuramente ci sentiamo di consigliarla!

“Un paradiso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
Google Translation

Esperienza bellissima, prima volta che affittavamo una villa con amici ma è andato tutto benissimo! Marcella, la proprietaria, squisita e professionale, ci ha sempre seguito dall'inizio e anche alla Digue l'abbiamo interpellata tranquillamente... La casa immersa nella foresta, molto confortevole, a 5 min in bicicletta dalla spiaggia più bella dell'isola. Che dire dell'isola... Un paradiso, dal mare dalle acque cristalline al fatto di girare in bicicletta xché ci sono pochissime auto, la sera si gira solo con le torce xché manca l'elettricità ... ( in casa si)!!!! Cibo creolo speziato , pollo e pesce in abbondanza... Una vacanza che mi rimarrà nel cuore!!!!

“meraviglioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

la villa è situata in una zona un pò distante da la passe ma a due passi da anse source d'argent e di strada per grand anse e le spiagge del sud. , la villa è finemente arredata ha due camere matrimoniali con bagno e una mansarda con 4 posti letto oltre ad un immenso salone con angolo cucina ed un grande terrazzo/veranda con tavolo per i pasti e angolo salotto per relax. oltre ad un grande giardino con doccia e barbeque . abbiamo soggiornato in 6 due famiglie con figlie teen ager quindi la soluzione si è rivelata ottima sia per la privacy che per l'autonomia. ogni giorno la casa viene pulita e le camere rifatte da Sabrina che è anche un eccellente cuoca. vi consiglio vivamente di chiedere di cucinare per voi. l'ubicazione proprio nel centro dell'isola con vicinissimi supermarket e take away. comunque consiglio noleggio bici
Consigliatissimo.

“tra la gente del posto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

la casa è esattamente come viene presentata, un ambiente pulito, confortevole, spazioso. E' un po' appartato rispetto al porto, ma molto vicino alle spiagge più belle.ad ogni modo consiglio a tutti di affittare le bici, perchè sono molto utili per spostarsi anche per chi, come noi, preferisce camminare a pedalare. La casa è in un quartiere residenziale, molto silenzioso e gli ambienti sono spaziosi, adatti ad un gruppo di amici o a due famiglie. E' possibile cucinare, ma vi consiglio assolutamente di provare la cucina di sabrina, che supera per qualità tutti i ristoranti che abbiamo provato a la digue. Se avete diversi bagagli è utile contrattare nel prezzo il trasporto da e per il traghetto. Per il resto portate solo la vostra voglia di scoprire e godevi il ritmo lento di la digue!
