Description:

Upon arrival at the Acquario Villa on Praslin, natural stone walls and beautiful tropical plants and palm trees greet you, along with white banisters and bright yellow pillars. On the left-hand side stands the quaint reception house, which shares many stylistic features with the rest of the estate. A few steps further, guests are met by a staircase, flanked by huge granite boulders, leading up to the villa's restaurant. Behind the saloon-style door at the top lies a comfortable dining area, where breakfast is served each morning for those who want it.
Besides that, what else does this simple accommodation offer on first glance? As well as the excellent location, close to the beach, the house is surrounded by unbelievable peace and quiet, as well as the tranquil sounds of nature. The tropical garden ensures a stay with plenty of privacy, during which you can get away from the stress of daily life and breathe. Simply relax and do absolutely nothing in the furnished outdoor area that surrounds the property.

The interior of the Acquario Villa serves up a wide range of possibilities in Creole ambience, ensuring an authentic background for your holiday. The four Standard Rooms each offer a comfortable double room with a spacious bathroom and shower. A lounge area with kitchen, as well as a veranda, are also available for use, but are to be shared with the neighbouring rooms of the same category (assuming these are also booked when you go). These rooms are therefore particularly attractive for couples travelling together, or for families who want to relax in freedom here. Those looking for a greater degree of privacy can consider the two Superior Rooms, which have kingsize beds, a bathroom, and their own lounge/kitchen each, as well as a private veranda. The separate house - the Family Villa - with two bedrooms and bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a veranda allows yet more independence; even if just two people book this house, the other room will not be rented out at the same time. All of the units come with air-conditioning, as well as a TV, radio, stereo and WiFi, allowing you to stay caught up with your loved ones back home via your smartphone or tablet.

Praslin offers several options for excursions and other possibilities. The Vallée de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Park, for example, contains the Seychelles-typical Coco de Mer palm tree, as well as numerous bird species. Besides that, the nearby island of Curieuse with its giant tortoise population can be reached swiftly by boat, as can La Digue. In the evening, why not take a stroll along the beach and watch the sunset, or settle down on the villa’s balcony and let the day fade away.

Activities and specials:

  • The villa is located just a stone’s throw from the north end of Cote d’Or/Anse Volbert beach.
  • Shops, restaurants, charter boats, rental cars, a diving school, and a bank can all be found nearby as well.
  • Decorative granite rocks lend the estate an imposing, individual Seychelles flair.
  • You have the choice between self-catering or booking breakfast.

The trade winds between December and February will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin. This may make the water a little cloudy but also provides yet more evidence that the underwater world around the Seychelles is in top health. Please note that the opposite coast of the island of Praslin does not have this effect.
