The villas are simply out of a dream and the staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel like home (away from home). The manager, Pierre, who has lived on the estate for 17 years, obviously loves the place and manages to make you fall in love with it too. Do not hesitate to ask him and he would make anything possible - from calling a sea taxi to pick you up from the beach to little islands for snorkeling, to giving you kayaks, bikes or movies to watch at home on a rainy day... or butter for pancakes... your can ask him anything. We had extremely hot days and extremely rainy days. so we have seen all sides of the place and we love it.There are 7 giant turtles on the estate and all the Seychelloius birds and lizzards that you would otherwise have to search for in the national park Valles de Mai, so it really cannot get much better on Praslin.
