“Privacy in a relaxing place with stunning view”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

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!

We stayed at Villas de Jardin for three weeks and it was just the perfect choice. Stayed in villa that was the highest in the resort. The view of the Indian Ocean was just perfect especially from spacious terrace where we usually had lunch or dinner. The villa was very new, the resort must have been just opened. When we entered the villa we were surprised how large it was. It's nicely decorated, great simple design that met all of our expectations.
We would like to thank to the staff, especially Ulrike - the manager - who helped us with arrangements such as restaurants, car hire, snorkelling etc. Cleaning was done daily except Sundays, they changed towels every day, did the washing up and just made the place clean and tidy.
We rented a car for all three weeks and I would recommend that to everyone who comes to Seychelles. There is plenty to see on Mahé Island and the car made it much easier.
There are some good restaurants on the island, but again we needed to drive there.
We also enjoyed feeding the tortoises that were behind the reception at the garden - they have 4 giant tortoises. Also the feeling when you pick up a papaya in the garden is unforgettable, especially for a European city man.
We will come back to Seychelles and definitely stay at Villas de Jardin.
