Excellent!

5 of 5
We can recommend this appt. It is well equipped, very modern. Everything you need for a nice stay at the Seychelles. But the best of all are the hosts, Mrs and Mr Andre. They are lovely and very helpful with everything (rental car, day trips etc) and they didn't treat us as paying guests but like visiting friends. They made us familiar with local food and tradition. We had a very good time at their house. The only thing to know is that you absolutely need a car because the house is right up in the hills and it is a very steep way up to La Batie.

Amazing place in an amazing location!

5 of 5
Villa Marquise is in a great location only a few minutes from Beau Vallon with its pristine, long, sandy beach and many bars and restaurant. A handy supermarket and a small snack shop with home made cakes and sandwiches are across the road from the villa. Marc and Helen made us feel very welcome with lots of tips on where to go and what to do as well as teaching us authentic creole cooking. We stayed at Marquise Villa with our two teenage sons who spent hours snorkeling, swimming and kayaking on the beach just a few steps down from the terrace. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it!
