“Stay at Villas de Jardin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

This was an outstanding vacation villa on so many levels. The view was magnificent; the villa was a gorgeous design; spacious, warm, welcoming and very well thought out. We loved the pool although small it was tremendous to swim in a pool hanging off the cliffside and built partly within a boulder. The landscaping was tremendous; gardens brilliantly laid out and designed. Gardeners were hard at work daily and you could see that they took so much pride in their creations. The large turtuoises were a lovely touch. Management was professional, helpful, friendly, welcoming and extremely thoughtful. Ulrike went out of her way for us to find out about things we had wanted to do. The only thing that I think would add to the stay is a phone in the villa, TV, better wireless reception and an inclusive pick up from the airport and drop off to the airport or jetty.

We stayed in Villas de Jardin for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon in Seychelles - we always wanted to see the islands and were looking for nice but affordable place to stay and
Villas fulfilled all our expectations and we found it a great place to enjoy our time there in privacy.
Accomodation was very spacious, modern and extremly clean. It was great to have a choice to cook something for ourselves as restaurants can be very expensive in Seychelles and not always serving great food...
We really enjoyed our meals on our terrace above the Indian ocean.
Ulrike - Manager of the Villas was very friendly and helpfull, arranged transport, booked a car hire and gave us all information needed about day trips, beaches, restaurants, places to visit...
Would love to come back one day.

This self-catering place with 7 units has opened in 2011 and lies in Port Glaud at the west coast of Mahe. We stayed in villa no.1 for two weeks and were absolutely happy about our decision. The rooms in the villa are huge - nicely furnitured - huge bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower and a giant terrasse. From every place in the villa you can enjoy a stunning view over the Indian Ocean. If you like a peaceful accomodation in a wonderfull surrounding where you can enjoy absolute privacy you should choose Villas de Jardin!

Ulrike, the german-speaking host, was very kind and helpful. She helped us organising tours, booked our reservations in restaurants and also gave us some very useful tips that made our first stay on Seychelles a memorable experience.

As everywhere on Mahe be sure to rent a car. Driving our own car was easier than expected und helped us to explore the island individually. The hillside villas are accesible by car (very steep road). A very nice beach at Port Launay is a short 5 minutes drive away. This place is also a good suggestion for a drink in the evening.

So, if you plan to go to Mahe and you are looking for an individual but superb place with great value then you should not hesitate and choose Villas de Jardin - you will not be disappointed!

We had a great time and loved the Villas de Jardin. Absolutely the best value for the money. Villas are new and immaculate. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Huge rooms, great views, and a quick walk to awesome beaches. We would highly recommend this hotel over the pricy and commericalized resorts. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Higher villas have best views. We were in #1 and it was amazing.

Beginning of August, we decided with our two kids to take a trip to the Seychelles and found the place on the web. Frankly speaking the website did not look so good but could not find anything else at a reasonable price. We booked 5 days at one of the villas with a single bedroom with the idea of looking for another place while we where there.

The german lady that we contacted over the phone was kind enough to book for us a car at the airport. Once we arrived in Mahe the car was there and we drove to the villas that are located on the other side of the island which in my opinion in the best area.
When we reached the villa we where really surprised to find such a nice place, all was new, nicely decorated in modern style with very good taste, the bathroom was as good as a bathroom you could find in a 5 star hotel. Huge terrace and very nice ocean view.One bed was arranged for the kids in the spacious living room and placed in a way that was not at all disturbing during the day.

One side of the villa has full height windows so that you can always enjoy the view wherever you are in the house. The villa complex includes 7 villas that are all at a good distance from each other so that you feel full privacy. A swimming pool with a "piano" shape is also available but it very small however very pleasant to have a quick refreshing swim after a full day at the beach.
The German lady was always very nice to us and very cordial. I would highly recommend the place if you are traveling in family and do not want to go in a hotel, we really felt very comfortable.

We toured the island and can say that the location of the villa was the most convenient to reach the nicest beaches and a few good restaurants.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at Villas de Jardin. Very beautiful, clean and nicely located villas. Staff was very helpful about trip inquiries and friendly at all times. We especially enjoyed the hillside pool with the amazing view. The nearby located beach Port Launay was one of the most beautiful beaches we found on the island. We will definitely try to come back!
