Description:

This charming, elegantly-fitted “jungle villa” is located amidst a green tropical forest on the northern edge of the Baie Sainte Anne, ideal for those looking for something a little special. Up to eight discerning holidaymakers can stay in this two-storey wooden house, not just relaxing, but also enjoying a level of living comfort that will leave an impression long after the stay is over. The villa towers over the surrounding private garden, whose impressive, lush greenery is hard to beat. Tropical plants of all sizes are spread across the lawn and the terraces, as well as the small paths that twist through the area. When it comes to looking for your favourite part of the garden, you have plenty to choose from: relaxing on the daybed surrounded by greenery, or sitting back on the relaxing chairs that can be found on the terrace; reclining on the sun-loungers in the open air, or choosing a shady spot in which to sit; perching at the small outdoor bar, or sitting in one of the balcony seating spots, such as the lounge corner in a Buddha-bar style. Finally, the private pool offers refreshment for those searching for it. However you decide to spend your time, the Gecko Villa is perfectly-suited to spending your days outside and enjoying proximity to nature and tropical Seychelles flair. The managers also live next door, and are always available for questions or to help organise excursions. That said, this is never at the detriment to privacy, which the property offers in spades.

Step into your holiday home over the bridge-like access leading to the entrance, and enjoy getting closer, step by step, to the airy heights and the green treetops. Or, take the outdoor steps on the other side of the house, leading right to the veranda. Stylish on the outside with a well-equipped interior that is ideal for hours spent indoors, the architecturally-sophisticated house serves up extensive use of wood, high ceilings, and harmoniously-arranged furniture to create a high degree of comfort and a cosy feeling. Relax on the sofa, munch on a snack at the table, prepare an evening barbeque in the fully-equipped kitchen, send your loved ones back home a few holiday pictures over the WiFi internet: all of this is possible without losing any feeling of togetherness. Romantic bedrooms draw you in for a relaxing time, while the two bathrooms, one of which is en suite, serve up style and excellent facilities. An unbeatable highlight of the Gecko Villa is also that you can enjoy a delicious Creole dinner, prepared by the managers on any day except Sunday. They will even take care of the dinner shopping, so that you only need to pay for the groceries themselves. This is not just a great offer in terms of cost and time, but also provides you with the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beautiful cuisine of the Seychelles in your own villa.

Praslin serves up numerous excursions, including the Vallée de Mai nature park, which belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage. The park itself offers paths which wind through the Seychelles-typical Coco de Mer palm trees, as well as past numerous rare birds and other exotic plants. Or, take a boat trip to one of the Seychelles' beautiful neighbouring islands, including La Digue or Curieuse, where you can take plenty of mental snaps for your interior photo album. The beach of Anse Takamaka in Baie Sainte Anne is just 200m away, but serves more as a fisherman's beach than anything else. Therefore, for a real beach experience, we'd rather recommend the popular, incredibly white Cote d'Or, with its lively atmosphere and extensive range of activities. For anyone looking for peace and solitude, the beach of Anse La Blague should also be taken into consideration. Whatever you decide, it is a good idea to rent a car for your trip. Those who are a little more flexible can also opt for the bus, or simply explore the surrounding area on-foot.

Activities and specials:

  • Dive into the idyllic nature and peace surrounding this property.
  • Use the charming villa as the ideal domicile for an unforgettable holiday with friends or family.
  • You have the possibility to enjoy a first-class, freshly cooked Creole dinner, prepared for you in your own holiday home, on every day of the week (groceries must be paid for by guests).
  • We recommend booking a rental car if you choose this property.

      The concept of the restaurant is one where no fixed a la carte menu is in place, but rather a daily changing variety of fresh fare in which the products are sourced daily from local producers and is skillfully prepared in order to enable diners to enjoy a combination of flavours and textures. Not your typical traditional creole cuisine, but a lighter interpretation.

Starter package provided upon arrival containing dishwasher and cleaning products, salt, pepper, local spices, and cooking oil.

The transfer at the arrival (from the jetty or airport) is offered from the owner of the villa and it is free of charge.

Please note that on Anse Takamaka (Baie St. Anne), seaweed is especially prominent in November.

Pets are not permitted.

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.

A very well equipped villa in a quiet location and beach in walking distance. A beautiful garden with a small pool completed the overall impression! The local contacts were super friendly and promptly helped us if we had any questions or requests. Nice it was the villa alone and you could enjoy a lot of peace for yourself alone.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
