Our stunning villa is right on Beau Vallon beach, Mahe's longest and most beautiful. The villa can cater perfectly for a romantic couple, a family or a group of friends. This luxurious and elegant home from home is user friendly and a really fun place to kick back and relax in. Step off the deck walk twenty steps through your garden and you will find yourself treading the fine white sand of Beau Vallon beach where swimming conditions are ideal all year round. Where better to watch the sun go down than reclined on the swinging sofa on the verandah. When you are feeling the need for a dip you can virtually roll into our plunge pool.

We also have an integrated music system throughout the villa, just plug your tablet or smart phone into one of the amplifiers and away you go. There is free unlimited download Wifi The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, en suite bathroom, gorgeous sea views and a charming built in tea, coffee and cold drinks station! The second bedroom has a kingsize bed and amazing sea views on both sides. The third bedroom has a double bed and again gorgeous sea views. All these rooms lead onto the large first floor terrace. The fourth bed/study has a double bed and a single pull down top bunk. It has beautiful mountain views and a private balcony. We think its important you sleep extremely well and have provided super luxurious and comfortable mattresses throughout. Cooking is a dream in our well equipped kitchen. We have an additional steam oven, a dishwasher and wine coolers. If you don't fancy cooking the area has many delightful restaurants including La Scala and La Perle Noire. Feeling lazy? why not have your own chef ( we have one in mind) come to the villa and cook up a treat for you. More

How to get there
Here are directions from the Airport to the Villa When you leave the Airport, turn right. You are now on the main road that goes straight to the capital Victoria. On this road you will come to several roundabouts. Just keep heading straight. Eventually, after about 10 to 15 minutes you will enter town and will come to a very distinctive silver coloured clock tower. Carry on straight until you come to a set of traffic lights. The road will take you to the left. After about 150 metres, there is a fork to the right. Do not take the fork but head straight. The road will now go up hill and twist and turn for about 2 kilometres. Then you will begin a descent for about another 2 kilometres and will arrive in Beau Vallon. Look out for a petrol station on the left then after another 100 m...
