Marie and Mario own one of the most beautiful pieces of land that you can possibly find on this island. Only 2 appartments and 1 guesthouse plus their own house are surrounded by a huge and extremely well-tended garden, no neighboring buildings around and a superb beach just in front of the door. Marie takes so much care of her guests which made us feel almost like members of the family. She helps with all issues, such as arranging a rental car or a taxi boat to St. Pierre (which actually picks you up just at the beach next to the house) or the compulsory registration to go to Anse Georgette, negotiates taxi rates and is an outstanding conversation partner for all relevant and interesting topics from botany over local food to traditional seychellois medicine. Take the chance and ask her to show and explain the garden!
Rooms are absolutely clean and spotless, the interior is typical for the Seychelles: everything you need, simple and no hosh-posh design. Marie even provided us with breakfast basics so that we did not have to shop on the very first day.
A rental car is recommended - not only because of the location of Jardin Marron, but to explore the island the easiest way. We definitely want to come back!
PS: Mario runs another business: Edelweiss tours, however we do not have further information about it.
