Praslin, the second-largest of the Seychelles islands, is inhabited by a multicultural population of around 5000 residents, and offers a variety of unique fauna and flora species.

The La Modestie villa is located within walking distance of the white sandy beach, as well as of Grand Anse shopping centre, a cinema, banks, discos, and restaurants. Be sure to also visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, while the island's other beaches, such as Anse Possession or Anse Takamaka, are also well-worth a visit.

The trade winds between June and October 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.

Well, a clothes horse should be on the p. But the standard equipment of each apartment - the TV is a little loveless with various "stripping" on the wall mounted (but can also be that the installation was done recently) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast (Seychelles style). Room generous and clean. Negative (unfortunately): Feathers of the mattress press so much through the thin fabric that you wake up in pain. The foam pad from the second night has the a bit softened ... Info from the manager, that new mattresses are already "in progress" ... On our arrival, the manager asked us a little patience, until he serves the guests in front of us Has. In the meantime we could look at our own turtles in the garden. Good idea, because we were looking forward to the giant tortoises. And then the shock right at the arrival in paradise Seychelles. These beautiful, remarkable giants are living a dull existence in this corner of a very spacious garden. That is not how it works!! To this hotel on the other side of the access road is a green, apparently unused lot (except that there is a Volleyballnetzt curious that probably never used anyone). We wonder why it is not used for the turtles? Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
welcoming host, very clean room Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Totally trying to use the days on the island as meaningfully as possible. It felt like a king. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
luckily I also speak German Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very nice accommodation with German speaking hotel manager. Everything is taken care of. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were received very friendly and very well looked after by Emir. He gave us additional tips that we all gladly followed. The day started with a great breakfast and a huge fruit breakfast. With the waste of the fruit we were able to feed the 5 giant tortoises. The room and the whole house was very clean. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A very friendly atmosphere. An advantage that the manager speaks German and you can receive so many helpful information. The offered breakfast we found good, as we could also exchange our impressions with other guests. The bus stop was quick to reach, as was the small self-catering shop. If you like it quiet, that is right there. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Accommodation very clean, neat, lovingly decorated, staff extremely friendly. Since the manager speaks German, he has given us many valuable tips and information about the country and its people. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very friendly host and great accommodation with friendly and helpful people. Unfortunately a bit away from the nearest shops, but quiet and pleasant. The cleanliness was great and the breakfast was adequate and well presented. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The best guesthouse of the 3 we had. The apartment was really nice and very big and clean. The location was perfect for us, it was pleasant that a supermarket was nearby. Great breakfast and hosts and staff very friendly and helpful. We really liked it a lot! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The service was great and the staff very nice. The accommodation was clean. Gladly again. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The location of the property is a bit out of the way. The front desk was friendly, the room in a nice size, the bathroom but unfortunately with mold. The breakfast terrace seemed altogether dirty. (Dirty seat cushions, unsuspected tables) The young man who runs the house was always friendly, but worked in the service and general overwhelmed. The offered breakfast was very poor, the coffee inedible. A car is recommended. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The stay was great. The service is excellent for a guesthouse, very attentive and ready to help any questions and concerns. And very pleasant and sympathetic! Breakfast is good with a small selection of toast with jams, honey, butter and great fruit plate. There is also good coffee and tea. The room with a beautiful view of the countryside was super clean and was cleaned every day. We felt very well and look forward to a return. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The owner speaks German and has brought us closer to the check in Praslin. He showed us the "TO-DOs" and reserved us a visit to the Anse Georgette. The breakfast was very good and the room (except for the moldy shower) clean. The air conditioning had a defect that made us startle at night when we started this (loud rumble). In addition, the safe was broken, which was a pity. All in all but a recommended accommodation! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This house is located on a coast that does not undergo (for now?) Mass tourism and hotels next to each other. Here, we are quiet, few people on the beach, little commerce, and it's very good like that. The apartment is large, comfortable. Breakfast good and hearty. Small flat for the reception, cold and conventional. A small garden table behind the property would be a little extra for picnicking as there is no table in the apartment. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Your proposal for this guesthouse left me unhappy: The access road to the property is totally under water after a tropical spill (I can send you a photo), no safe in the room ("out of order" - photo also possible), how do you do that a beach day? No lighting next to, behind or over the bed, so three quarters of the room from 19 clock in the gloom, no mosquito net, not even a hook for a brought blatant hygiene deficits, because cats with Krätzespuren on the covered breakfast tables and tolerated by the manager, that they can eat from his own plate. Four days without hot water ("the electric dosn't work"). Room service not every day, noticeable on not emptied bucket and used dishes. Only the location with bus stop, beach, restaurant, supermarket and take away made it bearable, otherwise I would have moved out. You can not seriously convey this house. The owner lives on Mahé, that explains a lot. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very friendly, breakfast was very good and adequate, room was large, the water was yellowish and in the shower until suddenly cold, location good: bus station nearby, as well as a beautiful, quiet beach and the Whole Food shop for shopping and for small snacks and great wine Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Compliant with the documentation the safe does not work and the wifi very bad but overall We are not disappointed the breakfasts property Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
"Emir" has the 4 days made sure that we could enjoy our holiday relaxed. Thank you! Praslin! Has become our favorite island. The vegetation, the beaches, the water ... A DREAM! No umbrellas, no beach chairs and hardly any people ??? We had a rental car for 3 days and explored every corner (a must) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
