The extensive Domaine de Bacova estate is located in the south-east of Mahé, on the coast, and consists of two villas, each with space for four people, and a two-person bungalow. The closest beach, the Pointe au Sel, is located just 50 metres away, and the famous Anse Royale beach is about ten minutes' walk away. Besides the three beautiful houses, the estate offers a large garden where guests can relax and grill freshly-caught fish in the evenings.
2 × First Floor Studio (up to 2 people)
2 × Ground Floor Apartment (up to 2 people)
1 × Two Bedroom Villa (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- The estate is located right on the Pointe au Sel beach, and the famous beach of Anse Royale is just 1 km (0.6 miles) away.
- The estate is home to an extensive evergreen garden with tropical plants.
- Restaurants and bars can be reached in just a few minutes on-foot.
- The villas and bungalows can be cleaned on a daily basis on request.
The well-maintained Domaine de Bacova estate consists of two villas and a bungalow where guests can spend an unforgettable self-catering holiday. The large garden also offers an outside area to relax, especially in the evenings, where freshly-caught fish can be prepared on the grill while guests admire the surrounding tropical plants and palm trees.
Over 100 years ago, the estate's surroundings formed part of a plantation for bananas, coconuts, and vanilla, hence the Bacova name. Today, Le Domaine de Bacova has grown into one of the best self-catering resorts on Mahé.
Thanks to the close proximity of the beach, guests can look forward to a fabulous tropical Seychelles holiday. The stunning sandy landscapes and excellent climate of the Seychelles will allow you to forget the worries of daily life as you relax under the tropical sun.
The bungalow and two villas, which can also be rented as two separate studio apartments, are furnished in a friendly, welcoming manner, and offer a charming modern atmosphere to guests.
Besides relaxing at the Pointe au Sel beach, we also recommend a trip across the island. You should definitely go on a trip to Grande Anse and Beau Vallon, as the beauty of both beaches shouldn't be missed by anyone!

All the best, is to be recommended !! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful estate with all the comforts and an owner who remains available. He can also prepare a meal of very good quality better than at the restaurant. Only negative point the busy road nearby. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation is very well equipped and clean. The staff and the owner are friendly and helpful. As far as good, only the passing road is sometimes a bit noisy. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Apartment "Rafael" not very big, but clean and functional. Henri has found a rental car for the last 2 days. Our departure was late, we were able to keep the apartment until 21H. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Henri the owner was helpful and speaks German, his little watchdog came to greet us every morning ???? Mahé was great. The bus rides an adventure. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Apartment Le Domaine de Bacova was one category lower than Villa Zananas. Here everything went well and the owner Ralf was also very nice and helpful. The location was on the much-traveled Hautstraße, but still it was quiet here. We did not take a rental car and only drove with the public bosom. It is an experience to travel with the locals. The grocery stores were very close. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location Unimpressive check in spite of early arrival Very nice and helpful staff Good service Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Sharon has received us very charming + friendly. Very nice apartment. On the balcony it was a bit loud through the street. But at night everything was quiet. Very well-kept domain. Was a good ending to the holiday. Sharon came to the car extra at 5:30 am Thanks Sharon Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were very satisfied! We booked the smaller apartment, but got the larger one on the ground floor. Everything was very clean. Generously and tastefully furnished. Outstanding was the extremely quiet and efficient air conditioning. The best was the daybed and the lounge chair on the porch. Good accessibility of the beaches - by car. Small local beach in the immediate vicinity - very nice. Friendly and helpful landlord. Only the street has been clearly heard. At night, however, there was very little traffic. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
clean, big, everything available - only the location on the street was not so ideal, as it was already very loud Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super nice accommodation for a great price. Our best accommodation in the Seychelles. Any time. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Unfortunately, construction site on the doorstep, otherwise excellent value for money and attentive, fluent German-speaking host. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The owner was particularly to occurring and not only advised us on the choice of grilled fish, but also went to the fish shop and there with us shopped. In the evening there was a large gas grill on our veranda and we prepared the most delicious fish imaginable. That was the icing on the cake of our stay on Mahé. The accommodation is absolutely recommended! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This accommodation is about 80m from the beach. The road to the beach was over a busy road. The apartment complex was well maintained and made a very good impression. We were in the bungalow "Rafael" untergepracht. This was clean and lovingly decorated. The integrated kitchenette was equipped with the necessary. The air conditioning worked perfectly. Jimmy and his colleague (Servickräfte) always made for cleanliness and order. Henry the owner (German speaking) and his family were always available for questions and organizational matters (car rental). Our tip: Please do not try to walk to the nearby Anse Royal! The walk along the road takes at least half an hour and is far too dangerous! Then rather in the bus (stop about 100m) and two stops further you're there or the best way to rent a car. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This was our nicest place to stay. The room upstairs of the villa was very comfortably furnished. We even had beach towels available. A small functional kitchen was available. But we missed the bathroom a power socket to blow dry hair. The owner was very courteous and spoke perfect German, which of course was very accommodating. On the last day after check-out we even had a shower in the evening, because our flight was only at night and we were swimming again in the daytime. That is certainly not self-evident and we found it extremely nice. The airport is not far. It only takes 15 - 20 minutes by car. The only downside was the street noise. We would book the accommodation but immediately. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was very clean, very nicely decorated and in the kitchen, nothing was missing, the shower was nice and wide at ground level. I always think that's really good. And the air conditioning was perfect. We were in the house Rafael. Ideal for 2 people. The staff and the owner were super friendly. We were chilled at the reception champagne, because it was our honeymoon. Very friendly. Also we felt very safe there, as there was a wall around and you only came through a gate in the area. The gate then always had to open an employee, we got a separate key and there were also enough parking spaces for the cars. The area was very well maintained and we liked it. The WLAn was sometimes overloaded, so we had the impression. But it was enough. We were allowed to stay 1 hour earlier when we arrived, which was very good for us, as we were extremely exhausted from the trip. The location was also great, it was close to several bars and restaurants and also the gas station was nearby. Here you should definitely have a rental car, the buses are very unreliable in terms of time. We would go here again. clearly! Thank you all, for the great holiday! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great accommodation - nicely decorated, clean, great service (laundry was washed when needed, dishes were rinsed), there was even a little surprise to our wedding day! Both the owner Henri and the staff were very nice and helpful! The only downside is the quite noisy street, but that was fine for us too. The location of the accommodation on the island is great. Price-performance simply great! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Spacious, elegant apartment, well supplied even with beach towels. Kind reception (eg accompanied to the apartment, given information with availability). Good location even if you need to travel by public transport or car. Internet included Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The owner offered us a free late check-out (until 4pm) on the day of departure. So our vacation was very relaxed until the end. At this point again a big thank you to Henry! We felt very comfortable in the bungalow. Point deduction because of the street noise. At night with the windows closed, however, the noise is very muted. Please contact Seyvillas to update the location description: The beach opposite is only accessible at low tide and VERY small. The Anse Royale is NOT within walking distance. And if footpath only on the busy winding mountain road certainly not in 10 minutes. By car, the Anse Royale can be reached in 3-4 minutes or a bit more by bus. The bus stop is almost in front of the house. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Mega lot of space was very well maintained and in the situation there were hardly any tourists, so that you almost always alone was very nice and peaceful. The service was great Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good and clean accommodation, owner very helpful and nice! Have been there for the second time, good starting point on Mahe. Passing main street is a bit noisy .... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A crowning glory of our Seychelles trip we had in the apartment Le Domaine de Bacova. The apartment was great, the complex was well maintained. Here you just have to feel good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great accommodation with laundry service and daily cleaning. The owner even gave us fresh bananas on the day of departure because we had to leave very early. The rooms upstairs with balcony were very nice and cozy. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The apartment is spacious and nicely furnished, but has a certain "shabby chic". A little more cleanliness and a few cosmetic repairs would improve the impression. The roadside situation causes a lot of noise, and when traffic stops, the dogs in the neighborhood bark at night. Advantage: the nearest bus stop is not far. And all you have to do is cross the street and be on the beach, where you can snorkel well. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
For 6 days we were in April 2018 in Bungalow Rafael. The bungalow was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Very nice ! We lacked nothing. Henri, his family and the staff were always helpful and very friendly and accommodating. The bungalow with its equipment left nothing to be desired. The big bed was super comfortable. Due to the heat it was after a day trip every time a rest to return to a well tempered and cleaned bungalow. The fan and the air conditioning was a big plus! Free wifi including connection was great too. Noise from the street was not noticed. The beach across the street was nice too and we were able to snorkel in the water. The facility itself has given us a good sense of security. We had been to La Digue and Praslin before, and at the end of our Seychelles dream trip the "Le Domaine de Bacova" accommodation was a very, very good choice. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This accommodation was nice, big enough and we were well looked after by the staff. It's loud through the street. For us, the proximity to the water was the more important selection criterion. If the 4 to 5 dogs on the other side of the street did not disturb our last night with almost constant barking, it would have been a very good one. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were well looked after, the apartment was very clean and well furnished, the people helpful, the location very well. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything great, except for the street noise that bothered us. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Staff was very friendly and helpful, location and cleanliness very good Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The apartment is large and well furnished. The terrace is very big. Unfortunately, the road passes right there. This very loud. Since our flight was only in the evening we were allowed to store the suitcases. Showers only went with cold water and imn bathing in the yard. Bad service on the part of the owner of little interest shows. His staff was totally friendly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
