We stayed at this eco villa in the rainforest in Praslin in July 2015. It is an eco villa, so built in great sympathy to the environment.
The staff were attentive and provided a good level of service. In summary, their level of cooking was excellent, specialising in Creole food. The clients pay for the food and Stella and George cook it.
The beds are comfortable.
Downsides are that the villa is dark as it is in a forest. The lighting inside is not very bright, making it hard to read. We found the indoor seating uncomfortable. The main area is not air conditioned meaning it gets hot when you are cooking, cleaning up or ironing.
Our preference is for La Digue and Mahe with regard to the 3 islands, so we spent a great deal of time on La Digue, which has a light hearted seaside feel about it, with easy to cycle trails.
We (4 people) stayed 9 days at this very nicely decorated house and really liked it a lot!
Meanwhile (since 4 months) there are new house keepers, Stella and George, and they are absolutely lovely people and we spent quite some time with them during their great cooking for us and various dinners. Their hosptality is splendid and their cooking skills as well...
The standard of the house is high and you immediately feel at home.
However, the pool and the beach close to the house are not great, so it is recommendable to have a car (or to take the bus) to be able to reach various beaches on the island.
The Ferry station is only 10 min away, and 1-2 day trips to La Digue is strongly recommendable!
Overall, the house offers really good value for money!
I've stayed in VILLA PAILLE EN QUEUE with my friends and we've had a great time! The villa it's absolutely amazing! We've loved everything: the terrace, the lounge, the pool, the bedrooms. We were very lucky with Stella and George! Stella is an amazing cook and George helped us renting a car and gave us all the informations we need. We definitely want to come back here!
We lived in Villa PEQ more than two weeks. For a couple like us it was huge. Anyway, we enjoyed the space a lot. We can both highly recommend the place!
The house is very nice and clean. Typical decoration from the Seychelles makes it even nicer. It looks exactly as the pictures show. We had everything we needed and more in Villa PEQ. Kitchen is very well equiped and the Creole cooking was amazing.
The veranda and the garden including the pool are very nice and we spend several whole days there to enjoy the privacy. The view from the veranda towards the bay is stunning.
You can feel that there was a lot of love involved when the place was build. The flowers and plants in the garden and the small and beautiful details in the house make it really special.
I stayed at villa Paye en Queue with my sister, son and his fiancée . First my apologies to Captain Jonathan and Dan for not reviewing the property sooner. From the moment we contacted Jonathan until the day we left the villa the service was above excellent. The booking, our requests, and collection from Praslin Airport were all organized with no problems. The villa was a dream clean tidy plenty of lovely white towels a welcome pack. Dan and his lovely wife Nadia looked after everything. The food was everything we could have wished for always local cuisine which we loved. Dan kindly arranged a number of trips for us and accompanied us. His knowledge of the area made the trips even more interesting. This was my son and his fiancées first visit to the Seychelles , they fell in love with Praslin and the care and attention we all received from Dan and Nadia made a very special holiday even more special. I would recommend the hire of a car which Dan can arrange and the pizza place in Cote D'Or has lovely ice cream! We went out a few evenings but the meals prepared by Dan and Nadia were much nicer. A wonderful place to have fun and chill. We will be back
