“Large & clean accomodation with perfect location!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Nice spacious and clean apartment on La Digue, Seychelles. They have a big and well equipped kitchen (with a good fridge) and a disent bathroom. As much hot wather as we wanted. Nice porch for breakfast and afternoon relaxing. Biking It`s an efficent way to get around. Rent a bike at the reseption and you may explore the island. The main supermarket on the island is 2min north. The Villa Creole is great value for mony.

One or two days is not enough to discover and enjoy this island. Many people stay longer at the island, Praslin, but I would recomend 50/50 split. We stayed for almost a week on La Digue.

Villa Creole has a perfect location 5min bikeride from Anse Source D`Argent and another 5minutes from the harbour. The beach is beautiful, with some incredible nice suncets. It is very shallow, so not suiteable for snorkling. When low tide you might walk for 10minutes to reach the coral wal and drop off. For snorkling/diving I would recomend a trip with a local boat out from the harbour to Coco & Felicite. We encountered turtles, eaglerays and many beautiful fish. Most of the coral are destroyed. They blamed it on earlier storms, but we saw ancors demolish while snorkeling.

The island of La Digue is remote and you might have trouble getting your hands on chips, snaks, icecream etc... Might be a good idea to bring some of your favourite snack :)

The pizzeria by the supermarket is good, but If you seek fine dining and a perfect evening - the perfect place is Le Domaine de L`Orangerie. The bufè was amazing with a wast selections of delicious foods and even sushi.

Room Tip: Oceanview is the best ones, but theyr all the same inside.

La Digue is a small island where everywhere is within 1 hours walk maximum, a lot quicker should you use the bicycles which are cheap and freely available. There are now a few vehicles around the island and tend to be for commercial use and a couple of cars, 4x4's used as taxis. Severall beaches dotted around the island are all worth trying out for a days trip, you won't be dissapointed by any of them. The restaraunts all tend to have similar food on their menus and around the the same prices, all expensive by UK standards but I guess that is due to costs involved in transporting between islands. Expect to pay £15 for a lunch or single course dinner per person. No partying late into the night at the hotels or very few bars, when the last diners leave the locals shut up shop. One disco exists near the jetty and is open late. If you are self catering don't expect to go shopping at the local shops and find everything you need, the choice is very limited. The best kept secret on the food front is the Paradise Flycatcher restaraunt, 15Euro for a 3 course dinner can't be beaten, seek it out.
As for Villa Creole, where we stayed I can wholeheartedly recommend one of these 4 attractive villas, plenty of space in each room and a nice veranda to lounge about. Each villa has it's own garden and outside shower, bike park and 20ft. across the local road is the beach and sunloungers owned by Villa Creole and is a nice place to relax watching the sunsets. You don't have to worry about the road, it is mostly bicycles that use this and the motorised vehicles chug around the roads no faster than the bicycles and always give way to pedestrians and bicycles.
The staff we had most contact with were Marina, Emma & Andrew and all 3 of them were dedicated to looking after us and making our visit an enjoyable one. Breakfasts were brought to us on a tray and consisted of fresh friut, toast with butter & marmalade, eggs, tea or coffee, a good start to the day. The villa was cleaned everyday and towels/linen changed when necessary or when requested without quibble.

Room Tip: Any one of the the 4.
