Right beside the powdery white sands of the Cote d'Or lie the 6 exclusive villas of Les Villas d'Or. This location is excellent for walks along the beach, and offers easy-access to a number of different restaurants within walking distance.
2 × Two Bedroom Villa (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- Take a walk along the white sandy beach that lies immediately in front of the Villas d'Or, and visit one of the exquisite beach restaurants there, such as the well-known Café Arts.
- Take the boat over to St. Pierre island, which offers one of the best snorkelling spots in the Seychelles.
- Book a boat trip Curieuse Island. The trip will include a beach barbeque and a tour of the tortoise breeding station.
- Free bicycles are available for quick shopping errands only.
The Villas d'Or were built on a 2 hectare estate that was once part of the beach, but nowadays has been transformed into a beautiful tropical garden by the Seychellois owners. As opposed to some of the foreign-owned hotels in the Seychelles, there is a great deal of attention-to-detail and love put into the maintenance of the estate, including a number of native Seychelles plants in the garden. A magnificent driveway leads from the street to the garden, where the only sounds you'll hear will be the rustling of palm trees in the wind and the splashing of the waves on the nearby beach.
The garden houses 6 spacious villas, all of which have verandas facing the sea. Small sandy paths lead through the garden and connect the villas to each other. One of the paths also leads to the entrance area of the estate, with its large reception and sheltered gazebo beside the pool.
Thanks to its beach-side location, the pool probably won't see much use. The beach here is simply too inviting thanks to its beautiful scenery and plentiful shade. The entrance to the water is also extremely shallow, and the sand underfoot is soft and white, making the beach a fantastic year-round prospect for swimming, something that doesn't necessarily ring true for all of the island's beaches.
According to the estate's charming manager, Pierre, the villas were originally designed to be high-class self-catering villas, but as time went by the services were extended to excellent breakfasts and evening meals. The Villas d'Or receive our special recommendation as they rank among the best accommodations available in this price category on Praslin. If you look at the pictures you'll see that they speak for themselves.

The trade winds between December and February will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin.

We had a beautiful, secluded bungalow, right on the sea. The decor and size were very good! The support by the local manager was also very good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location, quiet, clean, good friendly service & efficient management except for the turtles. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful large clean bungalows in a very well-kept tropical garden area. With one of the most beautiful beaches. Very friendly staff. Small drawback, had to move on the first day. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
An absolutely top accommodation on the Cote D'Or. The bungalow complex is well maintained and nicely designed, has direct beach location and is highly recommended during the time of the Southeast Passat (no seagrass). The bungalows are clean and nicely decorated. There are beach towels, which can be changed daily. The staff is very friendly and especially Pierre is always helpful and always available. On our late arrival he drove us to a small shop so we could stock up on drinks. Breakfast will be brought to the bungalow at the appointed time. If we come to Pralin again, then definitely "Les Villas D'Or" :-). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Top location on the only beach on Praslin, where you can go swimming relaxed, extremely hard-working owner, unique facility. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nicely located accommodation on the Cote d'Or, own beach, wonderful flair, a very nice receptionist (Pierre). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A great place to stay on a wonderful beach. The owner Pierre and his staff lovingly take care of their guests. The accommodation is clean and the breakfast is adequate. Even if there is something more. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
... with 3 nights even because of overbooking once inside the area to move was certainly not optimal. Otherwise, a middle class accommodation with a very hard-working boss (Pierre) Beware of sandflies and sand fleas in the area and on the beach .. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
An absolute dream-sized chalets right on the beach. great, well-kept green area and very nice staff. From the location and price / performance ratio the hammer-but not tell :). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation as well as the apartment were very well maintained. The latter was cleaned daily. In the house there are certainly smaller places that need renovation. This has our holiday experience but in no way disturbed. The location to the beach Cote d'Or is fantastic. The staff and especially the manager Pierre are very helpful. About the bookable breakfast we can not give a review, since we have completely self-catering. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Paradise on the Gold Coast of Praslin, feet in the ocean! The manager Pierre and his team are efficient, kind and caring. Their services are up to the beauty of the place. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The resort Les Villas D`or is beautiful, very clean, great location and the operator Pierre is very friendly and always endeavored to the well-being of his guests. Of all the facilities we have seen, this was actually the most beautiful and would always be our first choice. The half board service with transfer is a great thing. 5 different restaurants would not visit as a self-catering, if both guests would like to drink a wine. Precisely because the left-hand traffic should not be underestimated on the dangerous roads in the dark. The beach is very nice, deserted and very clean. But I have to deduct a star, because swimming in the Cote D`or bay only brings limited fun. The sea is consistently cloudy due to the fine sand, which is why you can hardly see fish, especially the numerous and dangerous stingray. The difference can be clearly recognized, for example, with Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. Add to that the annoying sandflies ... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice facility, very helpful operators, only the caged turtles we were sorry and the decor was a bit old Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We had booked the Villas d'Or the previous year due to the more remote location of Anse Volbert. A still nice, quiet area, but without special highlights. The hotel manager Pierre offers once a week "in-room-dining" in combination with "pay what you like". Funny, but no culinary highlight. I give three stars with a clear tendency to 4 stars. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super plant to dream, Piere is an original, takes care of the arriving guests, gives tips and hints. Offer Creole food and drop by in person. Takes care of pick-up and return to the restaurants. Highly recommended is a car, although the public bus stops in front of the door (the schedule was a bit opaque). Rooms were very well maintained. The breakfast was sufficient for us (continental). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We would be warmly welcomed in front of Pierre and informed about the area. We had a four-bungalow with a very nice terrace and garden furniture. The bedrooms were identical to identical bathrooms. After about 20 steps you are right on the sea. Right on the beach you can walk to the next village where there are supermarkets and restaurants. For the first purchase we could rent bicycles. Breakfast was brought to the bungalow, as well as we were offered the first night for us to cook, which we gratefully accepted. The tour guide from Creole got us a car, which worked very well, it was also possible to make a day trip on the last day on the spot and then dropped off directly on the next island. The rebooking of the transfers was completely unproblematic. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice apartment complex: quiet, very good quality, wonderful terrace Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very professional welcome, very nice with a welcome cocktail. The hotel is extremely well maintained by the many people who work there. The houses are superb: Creole style, rattan armchairs on the terrace, clothes rack (practical!), Beach towels provided. The manager Pierre is very attentive to his customers and especially gives very good advice on excursions to Praslin. In contrast, the breakfasts are quite disappointing: jam "industrial", not much in quantity, it lacks variety. They are expensive for the content. The beach is nice but the water was cloudy when we were there. The sandflyes are a real scourge! The bites persist even after returning to France. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Self catering houses are clean, very good and nice equipped. Friendly manager (Pierre)!
You come to a beautiful park and for me it was already something of paradise. Reception with refreshing towel and drink. I could refer the bungalow immediately (around 11.00 clock). Decor not new but still nice, kitchen very well equipped. The view is just great, behind the building the beautiful park, from the terrace you look at a flower. The beach completes this complex perfectly. The sea shows its most beautiful colors. Pool not used. Staff also very friendly. Everything was very clean. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location right on the beach of Cote D'Or. Very quiet and comfortable. Large bungalows with a very nice terrace and comfortable loungers. The breakfast was a bit monotonous. Bus stop right in front of the entrance of the complex. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Have been there for the second time and it is quiet and wonderful right on the beach. Short walk on the beach to the village. Conditioning very well maintained and clean. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice bungalow complex. Piere and his staff are very friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. The location, the eigend beach access and the beach itself are great! Very quiet and relaxing. 100% recommendation. Unfortunately it was at the travel time not possible to rent bicycles or a car. In the village there is no bike rental and a rental car was not to be found. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Staff very nice, but the complex is already getting old, the climate did not work and also the door locks were not so easy ...., but otherwise everything was great, the beach just great Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Again, everything as described, just a dream. The location of our house, last bungalow, to the beach 20 m. Again, everything was well-kept, clean and very attractive. Only here again the monotonous breakfast. This was served in the bungalow, which we found very nice. The bungalows are surrounded by a huge park. The only drawback: the too small outlet for the turtles. Pierre the manager, had even lent us money on the first day, without us knowing. He helped us with everything we did not know, no matter what kind of problem you had. A nice chat was always with him. The beach is just amazing. If you met 6 people there, that was a lot. Here you could relax. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
In and of itself very nice facility with 10 bungalows and very familiar. Deficiency is that except the sleeping area everything is designed open (slanted bars above the windows that serve as ventilation slots), so that the ants go in and out there. An anti-icing spray is provided, but the dead ameins stuck to the ceiling until we left. In addition, giant tortoises are kept on the grounds in much too small grubby cherish. In summary, a very nice facility with a lot of room for improvement Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The area is well located, clean and well maintained. A super-nice manager who really cares about every little thing, is very accommodating and helpful and actively approaches his guests. We liked it there very much. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
beautiful hotel with proximity to the sea super agréable.la super half board and very nice home especially with Mr Pierre.nous return. thank you Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Few beautiful in a very well-kept park distributed well-equipped villas that you almost never discovered in this green paradise. Very good beds, spacious wet areas, everything always spotless and everything available, which simplifies the holiday. Pierre, the host, looks after his guests very attentively. Fantastic is also the location on one of the most beautiful and longest beaches in the Seychelles. A true paradise! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All the best, very tasteful, clean accommodation, very warm and helpful staff (this also applies to the owner Pierre). Only the breakfast could be a bit better. Little downside: at the time of our stay there were many Sandfliegen on the beach, the us extremely bad (but the accommodation nothing ;-)) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We can recommend Les Villas D'Or without reservation. The boss "Pierre" takes care of all possible wishes. The villa is spacious, clean, not worn - just a short notice that someone cares. The beach right in front of the complex I liked almost the best. 15 minutes on foot is the nearest "village" with restaurants. Wifi with reasonable speed. Breakfast = toast, butter, some fruits, jam and coffee. On request we also got eggs. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Praslin was a dream. Great accommodation, clean and very good service. Can you recommend it. Friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation is located on the beach. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Top accommodation right on the beach. Very clean and quiet. Fortunately, we had the first house on the water. It was just heaven to jump in the morning just after getting up in the warm sea. A very well maintained, not too large area with friendly staff and many native fruit trees and palm trees on the property. The accommodations are very well equipped and cleaned every day. The beach in front of the accommodation has picture-book character. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A perfect spacious complex with very friendly courteous staff, especially Mr. Pierre is very hard. He gladly reserved a place in the restaurants Pirogue and Laurier (delicious buffet). Breakfast was served in the spacious bungalow (kitchen and living room in one, bedroom and bathroom and large covered terrace with two sun loungers). There was tea or coffee, toast bread (there was no black bread for us Austrians), croissants, butter, jam, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Even giant tortoises can be caressed in the area! The pool is hardly visited, since the beautiful beach is in the nose. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Top accommodation! Our bungalow was very clean, was cleaned daily. Owner and staff always friendly and helpful. If anything, there was only one missing coffee machine to complain about. Otherwise, really everything great! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very beautiful bungalows with attractive furniture and very good facilities in a beautiful garden, direct beach location, very quiet. Owner very helpful Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Aviators: seats extremely tight, no air conditioning, significant delay, not recommended. Very friendly welcome and nice advice on Praslin and, on time car rental and return. Les Villas DÓr: Very well maintained, spacious complex, beautiful villas, beautiful, almost lonely beach, great sunrises, extensive early swimming. For sensational nature experiences we especially recommend Fond Ferdinand. Defects of the area: 1. The air conditioning in one of our 2 villas fell out every night, attempts to repair unsuccessful. 2. The enclosure of the giant tortoises was much too small and stank pitifully of excrement. The manager promised remedy by donating some animals to other enclosures. The trip with Angel Tours to the islands Cousin, Curieuse and St. Pierre was a real highlight of the trip and is highly recommended. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Staff friendly, breakfast continental and fresh, location perfect, room perfect, small drawback: it was not possible to repair the television for 5 days. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
