The colonial-style Villa de Cerf is a 'small hotel' located on the beach on Cerf Island. This small island is located off the coast of Mahé in the middle of the protected Sainte Anne Marine Park. This concentration of small islands is unique and the extensive coral reef and the fish population makes Cerf Island popular amongst snorkelling fans.
The Villa de Cerf is located on the northernmost tip of the island, and therefore offers a view of the main island Mahé, as well as of the Marine Park.
Cerf Island's second advantage is its quiet, serene location. The island measures just 1 km (0.6 miles) in length, and there are no cars or vehicles, and little in the way of infrastructure. In fact, the beach that circles the island is the closest thing there is to a proper 'road'. This means that you can comfortably walk from your accommodation to one of the island's two restaurants (one at the Hotel L'Habitation hotel and one at the Cerf Island Resort). However, the Villa de Cerf has its own chef, who serves up delicious Creole and international dishes each morning and evening. Don't miss the special smoked fish salad and the typical grilled fish! In addition, a welcome cocktail will be offered on arrival.
Cerf Island is just a short 5-minute boat trip from the main island of Mahé. The hotel's own taxi-boat makes the trip several times each day, allowing guests to easily reach Mahé's many sights, including the colourful market in Victoria, the Seychelles capital, or one of its many stunning beaches.

We chose Cerf Island because according to SeyVillas "so popular with snorkelers". That was a big disappointment. As in the entire marine park, the corals on the house reef have been destroyed. The villa itself is beautiful. Ate a very good lunch and dinner there, which was not too expensive despite the island location. The hotel organized our transfers including a taxi to the airport, which worked out great. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice location, large rooms, clean., Food was very good and mostly adequate. The facility was run privately, the staff also during the day not always reachable and a bit reserved in the communication. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
As there was a double booking, we were "upgraded" from the Villa de Cerf to the Takamaka Villa, which we naturally accepted. In the villa we were for us, it was spacious and clean. However, we always had to go via the sandy beach to Villa de Cerf to eat, which brought wet, sandy feet with it. Unfortunately we had in the 2 days stay a lot of rain and therefore could not enjoy the beautiful snorkeling area in front of the hotel area and the free kayak extensively. The lunch and dinner was relatively expensive. There are not really any alternatives on the island. Tootsie, the hostess was friendly, but not cordial. Her cook was rather buttoned up, without emotions. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A very good accommodation with only (!) 4 double rooms. As a result, we were optimally cared for and cooked. Outstanding: Pool from the room 5 meters away, sea from the room 25 meters away! Super hospitable people, own taxi service (motor boat). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Fabulous, huge and well-kept room. Relaxation guaranteed. Friendly staff and excellent dinner. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
for the price too many shortcomings: alternately goes the water or it is again not in the shower and the sink. Hair dryer does not work. Food too expensive for quality and quantity. Information could be improved. If you have tried it on your own, you come to the fact that it is completely different (eg if you can walk around the island). But nice people Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A nice finish for the trip. You spend a few days completely relaxed, away from the traffic, but with a wonderful view of Mahé. Small, familiar and absolutely recommendable. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The 4-room hotel is located directly on the beach. The room and bathroom are huge and beautifully decorated. We had a room on the ground floor and could so directly in front of our room on the sun loungers by the pool. Service and friendliness were very good. The breakfast, as everywhere in the Seychelles, with eggs, toast, fruit and jam. There are no shops on Cerf Island. So you are dependent on the hotel and minibar. But it drives a hotel boat in less than 10 minutes to Mahe, where you can shop comfortably. Since we were only 3 days in the Villa de Cerf, we have dinner booked. It was very good, but with 30 € / person quite expensive. In order not to be dependent on the expensive minibar, we had taken 5 L canister water from Mahe. An electric kettle with free coffee and tea is available in the rooms. On the beach, right in front of the hotel, there is a small coral reef where you can snorkel wonderfully. The illuminated pier in the evening is really a nice place to watch fish. Since we did not have to return until the afternoon of the last day, we could still use everything in the hotel after rooms of the room and could also take a shower and freshen up before leaving. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Large villa with large room (only 4), which was decorated with many hibiscus flowers on arrival. Unfortunately, the transport (it was the Villa Cerf responsible for it) did not work out well. Unfortunately, there was no boat on the jetty to Cerf. We then asked the waiter from the restaurant Maharaja to call. Then we were told that the boat will come in 2 hours. We ate and waited in the maharaja. The food in the villa consisted of rather small breakfast and dinner for € 30, - (three-course and very good). Large pool and enough beach chairs in a very nice garden. For snorkeling only the sea section between Villa Cerf and Resort Cerf well suited (some coral sticks) otherwise sea grass meadows. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Friendly welcome, luckily a large room with huge bathroom on the upper floor get, with a large balcony and sea view; also very good food, good service, fast booking of a spontaneously planned shore excursion with a very good guide in Mahé by the manager of the house. As everywhere, everything was very clean and well maintained. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Well maintained. Instead of cycling, you can explore the area by kayak and find secluded beaches. If you do not buy something from Mahe you are 100% on the minibar. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Villa de Cerf is something special for people looking for peace and snorkeling. You can watch the fish in calm water. The cleanliness of the small hotel and the food was great. Wishes were gladly fulfilled. We have felt very comfortable here. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were here for the second time. Very nice house. The rooms on the first floor are wonderful. The lower one a little musty, because you can not leave open all the time, especially when sleeping. Food very good. For breakfast unfortunately rarely fruits. They left us here. Tootsie, the manager and the chef are very helpful and friendly, also the cleaning ladies. Everything is very clean, some things start to look a bit shabby (bath), but that is whining on a high level. Since only 4 rooms are rented, every guest also takes the food in the house, sometimes you can not quite get along, when other guests are a bit difficult. You can not stay out of the way. This year, unfortunately, was a bit difficult with a lady who said she had the right to certain beach chairs and then even the stranger things just put away. But we did not spoil this wonderful place. Very comfortable beach chairs and quite large pool. Wonderful to relax! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
a very nice hotel with friendly staff. In a great location with a very well-kept garden and pool. You should but with food stock as the kitchen quality is a catastrophe to absolutely exorbitant prices. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Small island and small accommodation with only four rooms. You did not notice the service. Attentive and always ready to organize excursions or just to be recommended. Here it is worthwhile to book the dinner. The island itself does not offer much, but the snorkeling area between Cerf Island and St. Anne. The room was for us 3 rather small and above all it had too little storage space. Otherwise, the room was modern and well furnished. The covered balcony facing the beach was an evening invitation to watch the sunset. That was really relaxing before the return flight. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
outstanding Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Fantastic accommodation. Very nice room with a balcony overlooking the sea. Nice area and good pool. Small staff team, all very nice, the service was great. Great food. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice accommodation. However, unfortunately you can not rely on information in the room. For example, there is an info in the room, at what times the in-house boat to Mahé drives. So we booked with a guide, with consideration of this "timetable", a trip from Mahé. When we were early in the morning at the front desk for the crossing reported, it was said, no, the boat only 30 minutes later. You would have the dinner at the Voraben (where we were not present) agreed. This Villa de Cerf has only 4 rooms and 1 suite. It is already clear to me that not every 30 minutes drives a boat. But if these few 3 times extra in the room for the guests are deposited, then you should already comply! Or you should inform the guests that you should inform yourself the evening before, how binding the time is for the next day. Also, we wanted to ask at the front desk for a trip - there were brochures. The front desk was always occupied until 4 pm and then again in the evening. When we went to the reception at 2.30 pm, it was said that the responsible lady was not there, that she was feeling unwell. It would probably come at 16 o'clock ... we are still waiting today! We then had to search for the Internet ourselves ... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice stay, good food Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very familiar small accommodation with only 4 rooms. There is both a lunch snack and dinner on reservation. Rita, the manager is extremely helpful and accommodating and also the rest of the staff was always friendly. An oasis of peace with a pool on the already quiet Cerf Island. Swimming is possible in front of the property. For snorkeling, totzdem the island is already in nature conservation, rather not. The water is just too dull. There was something to see. Even with our 1/2 day trip to the island of Moyenne Island, there was hardly anything worth seeing while snorkeling. The few coral there are all destroyed and in the area where seagrass is, you just see a little fish. In summary, a very nice accommodation for those seeking peace that you can definitely recommend. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was great, exactly what we were looking for (friendly and private atmosphere, good food, great service) We will be back next year !!!! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A good tip from Julia not to take the neighboring L`Habitation, but this small, fine "Villa de Cerfe" - here we had again a wonderful end to our Seychelles time Location great, right on the beach - great to relax, since we in the sometimes only 4, maximum 8 guests were - Rita (manager) and the staff pleasantly friendly and helpful - absolute highlight the dinner, the super-friendly chef Ravi (?) conjured up - a total of beautiful 5 last days Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A dream, landed in paradise. Beautiful room on the floor, all decorated with flowers. Rita, the manager is lovely. The cook too and cooks deliciously. We can only recommend the half board. Very nice facility, fine pool, enough beach chairs, quiet, relaxed atmosphere to relax. Priced higher, but really great! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Small family pension with very nice operator and very nice staff. Large, clean room with a very nice terrace and high quality patio furniture. Very good breakfast, lunch and dinner also very good at acceptable prices. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Just perfect!!! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Yes Perfect. Best accommodation on vacation. Humane prices, quality 1a. Chef Robin is a true master. This hotel on a better beach .... would probably be priceless ;-) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The transfer worked great, we were warmly welcomed! The guesthouse small but nice ....... food and service - :) The room big, the bathroom huge ...! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The transfer worked as mentioned on time and without problems. We arrived at the Villa Cerf and received a welcome drink, cold towels, we got upstairs the wonderful room overlooking Mahe and the sea, the decor was bright and friendly. The dinner was always fresh and delicious, as well as the breakfast, we enjoyed the whole privacy and the peace. Everything was wonderful. Thank you Anna and her team.
