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.
