“Very good for self catering during Island hopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Good value and well appointed self catering chalets. They hire bicycles which are a must to see the Island and get away from the tourists that flock in during the day.

Room Tip: All seem the same but watch when you get the sun which can be hot

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

We stayed at Fleur De Lys in July 2011 for 5 days. The place is very close to the jetty, a 5 minutes long walk that can be done with luggage. The direction is very careful to guests' needs. The bungalow is equipped with everything you need for self-catering. The aircon is optional (5 or 10 euros per day, not sure) but there are big fans on the ceiling that keep air circulating all the time (we didn't use aircon).
Although there was water shortage on the island, the shower was always comfortable with no water issues at all.
There's a bike rent service (100 rupies per person per day - about 7 euros) very useful if you want to go around without walking to much. The two main beaches "Anse Severe" and "Anse Source d'Argent" are easily within reach (20 mins on foot, 5-10 mins by bike).
The bungalows are clean although you can find some ants almost everywere ... but that's Seychelles, nothing to complain about.
In the end, I would definitely recommend staying at Fleur de lys. Only suggestion: double check rates over the Internet. We paid 120 Euros per night per room (by booking directly via email) whereas our bungalow neighbors paid 95 Euros (via an online booking service called "Ocean View").

P.S. Before staying there we were scared since we have read about local people trying to steal overnight. I can say that Fleur de lys is very safe now, they have put in place an alarm system with cameras and infrared sensors + security people during night. So, most important thing is to use common sense and, for the most valuable things, the safe service they offer at the reception for free.

We loved our 3 nights on La Digue at Fleur de Lys and wished we could have stayed longer. Ron was very welcoming and helpful and we loved beach-hopping with the bikes!
The Bungalows are perfect in the garden setting and we all loved the veranda...so peaceful and we loved spotting the birds and the bats.
Best beaches for us were Anse Source D'Argent and Anse Severe...we swam with a turtle - just us 4 and a turtle, magic. And the best restaurant on our whole trip would have to be L'Ocean just a little further up from Anse Severe.....friendly staff, great food and the view is perfect while you eat your lunch. It is worth the climb up the hill even on a bike in the heat! Anyway, thanks Ron and your great staff, we have some lovely memories. Best Wishes.

It would be nice to have a beach view, but you can't have everything unless you are prepared to spend alot of money. Instead I would rather chose the ideal positioning of Fleur de Lys . It is only 100 metres from teh nearest but not best beach, but more importantly you will find most of the facilities such as restaurants, shops, bike hire, tour offices, cash machines, banks, hospital, police station, harbour within 200-300 metres no matter which one you aim to go to. The cottages are immaculate and roomy for couples. More can be accomodated by arrangement. If you request it the air conditioning is excellent. And definitely wait for breakfast in the morning, brought to you on your own cottage verandah. It may well be the best meal you have each day. Ron, the owner, and David the Manager are available to assist when required but really this is a place you can book with confidence. Fleur de Lys is not as glamourous as some of the hotels, but it has high standards too which combine to make it excellent value and an excellent base for getting the most out of your time on La Digue. I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent stay with my wife and child (14 months). The garden setting is beautiful and though we are in the tropics (which in this case ment ants) we never felt the place was not clean. Our little one was greatly amused by the many beautiful birds and the chickens that were wandering the garden. We already consider returning next year!

Fleur De Lys was very nice, however upon arrival we were given a twin bunglow (they only have two double rooms and these were full) - even though we had requested a double room. Aside from this, Fleur De Lys is a really nice place - rooms are clean, good shower and friendly owner. Main downside is that it's a 10-15 mins walk to the nearest decent beach but it's convieniently located near the main shops/restuarants of La Digue.
