I must say that contrary to some of the negative reviews here I very much enjoyed it and would definitely go back. As stated in a number of other reviews, it is under new management and most of the negative reviews...

Me and my husband stayed at Villa Flamboyant for 5 nights during our honeymoon to the Seychelles in September 2011 (former management). We paid a relatively low price for this accommodation (just 55 Euro per room including B&B). We rented a car so we had no problem whatsoever traveling all over the island. It is much more economical to rent...

Rooms are nothing special, a bit run down. There were tropical ants in our bathroom. There's nothing outside villa, beach isn't good for swimming, if you'd like to eat out you should get a car or bus to get somewhere. So if you are looking for solitude and unpretentious concerning rooms this place will be ok. Though unpossibility to swim...

This stay was not like our previous wonderful visits to Villa Flamboyant. Sadly we won't be returning unless there is significant quality maintenance and more attention to detail. Natalie is welcoming and knowledgeable about how to get around. The chef was also very friendly and hard working.
