Przestronny dom, pięknie położony!!!

  • 5 of 5

To był doskonały wybór: duża, przestronna willa wśród oszałamiającej zieleni, szeroki taras z widokiem na ocean, zadbany ogród, osobna pralnia, na zewnątrz stacjonarny grill. Dom usytuowany przy bardzo malowniczej drodze w poprzek wyspy. Wystarczy zjechać z górki, by znaleźć się na pięknej plaży lub pójśc do sklepu. Świetna baza wypadowa na wycieczki po wyspie. Spędziliśmy tu 2 kojące tygodnie, w cudownym cieple. Gospodarze mieszkają po drugiej stronie drogi. Są niezwykle sympatycznymi, życzliwymi, gościnnymi ludźmi. Przygotowywali nam pyszne sosy do ryb, objaśniali nazwy roślin i owoców. Mówią po francusku i angielsku.

Polecamy to miejsce każdemu, kto ceni sobie ustronne miejsca z dala od turystycznego zamętu, kto chce bliżej poznać życie tubylców, zanurzyć się w ciszy i jednocześnie komfortowo odpocząć.

Merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné du 17 au 21 octobre 2016 dans cette magnifique Villa, nous étions 9, 6 adultes et 3 enfants de 2 ans 1/2 et 3 ans ½.

La villa est très bien située tout près d’anse Royale, la végétation qui l’entoure est luxuriante, et on ne se lasse pas de regarder la mer depuis les balcons de la maison.

Les pièces sont spacieuses, joliment décorées, propres, il y a tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner.

Nous avons été accueillis par Eliena et Mary, qui ont été à nos petits soins durant tout le séjour, elles nous ont conseillés mais aussi aidé pour la location de voiture (indispensable vu la situation de la villa).

Nous avons terminé notre séjour par un succulent repas Créole (carry poisson, poisson grillé, salade de papaye…) préparé par Mary qui est une excellente cuisinière, ce fut le meilleur repas du séjour.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location. Vous ne serez pas déçus !!!

Nous reviendrons.

Merci encore à Eliena, Mary et toute la famille Mondon.

Superb Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 nights at this fantastic getaway and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodations are very comfortable in every regard. The garden and balcony views are gorgeously peaceful. Mary's cooking is excellent, better than many of the restaurants we tried. Above all else, the hospitality was second to none. Mary and Gerard were very caring and attentive to our needs and their efforts made all the difference during our stay. When I return to Mahe in the future I will absolutely be staying at Bougainvilléa again!

Vacances au top à Bougainvilléa

  • 4 of 5

J'ai passé une semaine de vacances à Bougainvilléa avec des amis, nous étions un groupe de 8 adultes.

Bougainvilléa est la maison idéale : spacieuse, confortable, trés bien meublée, grandes terrasses,trés propre, à 500 mètres environ de la plage la plus proche .

Nous avons circulé en bus sur l'île de Mahé (un bus passe devant la maison pour ceux qui auraient des difficultés à arpenter la cote menant à la maison).

Je tiens à souligner la gentillesse de Marie, Gérard et de leurs enfants, nous avons été merveilleusement bien accueillis et avons partagé avec cette petite famille d'agréables moments de partage.

Je conseille vivement Bougainvilléa, vous ne serez pas déçus .

Super Mahe Holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was easy for us to complete the booking, Mary and Jared were very helpful with pick up at the airport, contact to rented car company and all kind of organisational things.

We loved the house at first sight, it is so beautifully located uphill in between tropical trees and flowers with the owners nearby at hand for all kind of questions, a chat or recommendations. Sea and garden view is really enchanting.

Interior of apartment is cosy and nicely decorated. All you need for a confortable stay is available. Instructions for use of laundry, air condition, ... is easily at hand and well described.

Rented car is recommended though there is also a bus stop nearby.

The most beautiful beaches in the South can be reached easily in a few minutes by car. Anse Royale is very close and has a small supermarket, sale of fish and fruit, bank, post office, pharmacy, good take-away. Anse Intendance and Anse Soleil are wonderful places for swimming and snorkeling.

Mary is a good cook: we enjoyed a nice dinner with red snapper, curry and some extras for our choosy kids.

We felt very much as guests and were treated so nicely!

Thank you, Mary and Jared, for a wonderful vacation!
