“Hideaway In The Hills”
Reviewed September 26, 2017 for a stay in September 2017
person found this review helpful

Hidden away in La Misere, Helvetia is a quiet retreat from the busy Victoria. We arrived in the morning, our pickup was not available due to a mix-up and I called Mona and she spoke to a taxi driver explaining the location. The taxi from the airport cost 35 euros and takes around 25 minutes to reach.
The room is basic, however for the money and beautiful location it is perfect. I stay in hotels as part of my work regularly, so to come to a private self catering unit is a welcome change from the lack of personal touch in many hotels and resorts.
You are very much left to your own devices, Mona makes herself available if you need anything and left some bread, coffee, tea etc in the apartment to get us started. I recommend bringing some food with you as it is expensive in Seychelles for even the basics, so we greatly appreciated the starter pack!
She called and arranged for a car hire to visit us around midday and Grace car hire brought a Kia Piccanto for 40 euros a day. A car is essential due to the hilltop location and distance from shops.
You are nestled in the heart of the beautiful nature of the Seychelles, the fruit bats soar past the balcony that faces out over Grande Anse beach. Many insects, birds and lizards visit the property (it is open fronted) so if you would rather be coddled up in air conditioning and a bug net kindly avoid, after all, the wildlife is one of the most amazing things about this location.
Mona is extremely welcoming, as well as her two sons Paul and Manu. They have a small pack of very endearing and friendly dogs that were a pleasure to be greeted by each morning, Whisky being my favourite! There are also six Aldabra tortoises on site that we brought veggie treats from the supermarket.
We were invited to dinner in the main house with Mona and her family on our last night and she made a massive spread of beautifully cooked food, it was a pleasure to get to meet her and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal!
Thanks again Mona and we wish you all the best.
