Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Baie Sainte Anne - Maison Vue Des Iles

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom sleeps 4 massive veranda sun decks & private beach access

Built just a few years ago Maison Vue Des Iles has the character and appearance of a traditional plantation property. The private drive is gated and the gardens have a fine collection of tropical plants. Behind the house is a wind-cut granite outcrop covered in Bougainvillea. The interior is a real contrast, the decor is a modern take on colonial style, with white walls and sofas softened by wooden floors and furniture, a mezzanine level doesn't obstruct a view upwards 30ft to the rafters. There are huge oil paintings by local artists (including our famous neighbour Raymond Dubuisson) to provide color, none however can compete with the vivid turquoise of the sea that can be seen straight ahead through the folding veranda doors. Stepping through is breathtaking, locals believe there is no more beautiful spot on what is a tropical island paradise. The property has a range cooker, fridge, dishwasher, laundry, hifi and library. Most of your time will be spent outside, either in the ocean or looking at it from the sun deck or veranda.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Maison Vue Des Iles is the place to be if you want a totally private, relaxing holiday with a view from the verandah to die for! My wife and I spent most of our time enjoying the view, which included a stunning little island right in front of the villa, crystal clear water, rolling surf and colors only seen in magazines: glistening white sandy beaches, unbelievably green vegetation and the magical blues of the ocean. Claudette and her team (Ryan and Debbie) made our stay dream-easy, from the beginning of the booking process through to the end of our stay. We were collected at the airport and driven to the villa, the rented car was delivered there, we were shown the property and the normal ins and outs of the various electrical implements (which included dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier) and were helped getting online for our internet addictions. All in all, our weeks' stay there was one of the best breaks of my life and I can recommend this property absolutely wholeheartedly. Thanks so much Claudette - we will cherish these memories forever.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such lovely comments. We do try to be as helpful as we can, and, yes, I am happy with our staff team. It as a fabulous property in an incredible situation. The sea and sky are ever changing and it is quite therapeutic to just sit and watch and listen, We are also lucky to be just along the coast from Anse La Blaque one of the quietest but prettiest beaches on the island.

Living the dream.

Maison vue des Iles

Living the dream.... My husband and I celebrated my 50th Birthday by visiting the Island of Praslin during the fist two weeks of May 2016, I will never forget the moment I walked into the house after a long journey from the uk, to be offered a fresh orange juice and a fridge cold cloth on arrival from Ryan who had collected us from the airport. The veranda doors were open and the ocean view was breathtaking we couldn't have wished for a better welcome. The house was just how it is described and met my expectations and beyond, our home for the next two weeks invited us to enjoy the sheer beauty that this location and home provides, it was paradise in front of our eyes.

We hired a car for the length of our stay and after a few days of doing very little except enjoying the house and sea on our doorstep, we explored the Island and all it provides. The guide at the house is helpful and Claudette is very quick to reply to any questions that we had.

Maison vue des Iles is a special place of which we hold memories, to treasure forever.

Owner's Response: I am delighted you and your party of friends had such a great time and that we looked after you well. There are more things to do around Praslin these days. My husband Jos and I particularly enjoy walking the old trails which are being opened up again after decades of underuse. Of the more commonly used paths The Fond Ferdinand at Consolation is our favourite with staggering views from every turn.

A most amazing place to stay in the Seychelles.

  • 5 of 5

We had a short 6 days vacation and wanted to relax and do some scuba diving with the kids. The choise of this wanderfull villa prooved to be fantastic.

Claudette , the owner was extreamly helpfull in all the arrangements and got us a rental car as well as Rayen who took us from the airport and helped when needed.

The villa is situated at the end of an incredible road, just above the sea shore with islends just in front.

The villa is great and has all the you need for relaxtion and is very comfertable and spacious. We went snorkling everey mornig just in front of the house (with the villa masks and fins) and then went scuba diving later on.

You need a rental car to get around but this makes all the more fun!

Time zipped and we are back home and we miss this villa and the seychelles very much.

Hope to come again to this perfect place again soon...

Owner's Response: I am delighted the family enjoyed the Villa and the island so much. We also enjoy diving and snorkelling, both Dive Schools on Praslin are excellent, Octopus and White Tip, they may even collect and return our clients from the Villa. At the moment it is turtle nesting season and staff from Nature Seychelles have marked and put signs on turtle nests along Anse La Blague. There are many turtles in the sea in front of the house, it is common to see two or three in one snorkelling trip. We hope to see you again one day Yoav.

Villa in lush wilderness with a breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at Villa Maison Vue Des Iles and we enjoyed every day!

The villa was exactly as described in the internet, and particularly the ocean view was just breathtaking. Not surprisingly we spent a lot of time outdoors and on the spacious veranda.

Thank you, Claudette and Joop, for the warm welcome and your kind hospitality!

Perfect getaway in Praslin!

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 6 adults) spent almost two weeks in this spacious villa, and found the stay too short... The large roofed terrace permits both dining and relaxing outdoors in the case of rain, and the even larger "sun deck" overlooking the sea invites to view the little island and minibeach below. The kitchen is equipped with all you need for fixing your meals, and there is also a charcoal grill on the patio, if you don't want to eat out. A nice maid came in on a daily basis and took care of the housekeeping matters to our complete satisfaction. In short, just the perfect holiday. You do want to rent a car, however, to get around, and the short final access to the villa is rather steep and may be demanding should you have a problem walking or your knees or hips are weak. Apart from that, a full five-star experience! Praslin is a calm uncrowded friendly island with wonderful lush nature, virtually empty beaches, extensive marine life and scuba opportunities, and it even boasts a golfcourse with breathtaking scenery. We will return ...

Maison Vue Des Iles Beach
Car: necessary

Maison Vue Des Iles stands down a private drive shared with one other small guest house and just 12 meters from the Indian Ocean; just below the house lies a small beach to which the house has it's own access. Immediately off shore is a shallow reef and the tiny island of Ile Malice, there are few better snorkeling spots in all of the Seychelles. The property derives its name from the collection of tropical islands which are the focal point of the stunning view from the balcony and sun deck. Anse La Blague is a quiet village it has a bus stop and a fabulous calm white sand beach protected by a shallow reef. Praslin boasts some of the most incredible beaches on Earth, plus a world heritage site The Valley De Mai once thought to be the original Garden of Eden. There are also excellent diving, snorkeling, hill walking, mountain biking, game-fishing and island hopping opportunities as well as championship golf course at the 5* Lemuria Hotel. All this and the Creole cuisine is amazing!

Maison Vue des Iles is on land that slopes steeply down to the small beach and has terracing and steps. This means that children will need close supervision. The house is wooden and thatched and so the no smoking requirement is as much about guest safety as it is about personal preferences. Access to the house is through electric gates and along a steep driveway. Praslin is the ultimate destination for anyone wanting to visit a tropical paradise that has local life and culture. The house manager and house keeper speak English, Creole and French. We endeavour to provide the very best service we can. However Maison vue des Iles' incredible oceanfront position means that the wear and tear on the building and its contents is considerable. When items fail we try to replace them as swiftly as possible, but the Seychelles is a geographically isolated developing nation and some services and products are not immediately to hand. We hope you will understand.
