We (me and my girlfriend) stayed here on Nov. 2012 during our vacation in Seychelles which was as we planned a magical one. We arrived in the morning of 15th of Nov. from Mahe with Cat Cocos up to Praslin and from there with the Inter Island Ferry up to La Passe Jetty. We booked the transfer from the jetty to the villa through La Diguoise for 150 Rs/one way. The check-in was fast and we received our Passion Villa very fast at 10 a.m. even if the check-in starts at 12 a.m. The guesthouse is located in a very nice garden of coconuts, hibiscus, water lily and ylan ylan palm trees. We were on B&B basis and we paid 100 euro / night, the reservation being made via agoda.com.
The accomodation has a nice veranda where you have the breakfast every morning, an outdoor shower (very useful when you are coming from snorkeling) and fridge. Inside there were 2 beds and seemed that the room was built for 3 people. The room was equipped with a TV (only SBC and TV5 channels), safe, A/C (which did not work quite properly) one king size bed, one small bed and a wardrobe. It is basic, very clean and it is everything that we needed in Paradise.
We rent 2 GIANT bikes from reception for 100 Rs per day and they let us to use them for an extra 2 hours on the last day without charging us.
When we arrived there we booked also the dinner for 23 euro / pers which is served at 7.30 pm and is very good, with dishes like grilled fish, chicken creole coco, saffron rice, vegetables, pancakes or icecream. The price of the dinner does not include the drinks (a Coke is 2 euro and a beer 3).
The breakfast was good but not enough for us which are used to eat also ham and cheese in the morning, not only omlette, butter, jam, a few fruits and coffee / tea.
When we left the guesthouse my girlfriend let her watch near the sink of the toilet and we realized when we reached the jetty. Alberic our driver went back to La Diguoise and bring us very quickly the watch just in time to catch the ferry to Praslin. We have to thank La Diguoise and Alberic for their help.
The guesthouse is located 400 m from the main road and 1 km away from Anse Source D'Argent probably the best beach in the world. The sunset on Anse Source d'Argent is really great but try to reach L'Union Estate before 5 otherwise the gate will close for tourists.
You have supermarkets 500 m away from the guesthouse but the supplies are limited:you can buy water, juices, beer, wine, chocolate, spices and hygienical products.
If you want to discover the whole island and spend some time also on the beaches you need at least one week here. You can snorkel on Anse Severe, have a nice hiking up to Nid d'Aigle peak, rent a guide to visit Anse Marron, go by bike to Grand Anse and from there by foot to Petite Anse and Anse Cocos.
We will come back soon to La Digue and we will definitely stay again on La Diguoise. If you need any info about Seychelles you can write me on PM.
