The well-maintained Hirondelle apartments are located on one of the most beautiful beaches on Praslin, Anse Volbert. From here, you'll have a wonderful view of the beach, and the ocean is just a short walk across a small road. Besides that, the location is rounded off by a number of shops, restaurants, and supermarkets in the surrounding area.
5 × Sea View Apartment (up to 2 people)
1 × Ocean View Loft Apartment (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- L'Hirondelle apartments are located next to one of the best beaches in the entire Seychelles archipelago, and are therefore the ideal starting point for a seaside holiday.
- People who like snorkelling will be extremely happy in this location, as there are several small boats which depart to explore the area around St. Pierre, which is the best place to snorkel in the whole archipelago.
- Shops, restaurants, and supermarkets can all be found in the immediate surroundings of the apartments, so self-catering is far from a problem.
- L'Hirondelle also offers an excellent continental breakfast service.
Precy and Emilia have been running l'Hirondelle for well over a decade, so their guesthouse is one of the more-established on Praslin. This well-maintained, spotless estate is located next to Anse Volbert, which is an incredible sandy beach which slopes gently into the water. Just offshore from the beach here is the beautiful island of St. Pierre, which is surrounded by one of the most incredible snorkelling reefs in the Seychelles. A number of other smaller islands add to the tropical paradise scenery. You can see all of this from l'Hirondelle, making this one of the most beautiful views you can have anywhere on Praslin.
A further advantage of the accommodation is the short walking distance to the small town of the Cote d'Or, which offers a number of shops, restaurants, and cocktail bars. This small town is located right next to the beach, and the extremely lively centre here contrasts the rest of the island of Praslin. This excellent location, combined with the apartments' excellent fittings, means self-catering here is a breeze.
Besides the kitchen, each of the 10 apartments offers a small lounge, a huge ocean-view veranda, and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. Thanks to the hotel's daily maid service, the rooms are always spotless, a real plus point for the accommodation. This fact, plus the excellent care that the owners take of the apartments, means that there is much to recommend about l'Hirondelle.
The ocean-view loft apartment is located in a separate building, and offers two bedrooms, making it great for groups. Alternatively, a larger group could rent out two of the regular apartments. Please note, however, that the apartments cannot be inter-connected; each apartment is fully-independent and private. However, the verandas of two of the sea-view apartments or two of the garden-view apartments can be joined up on request, creating a larger veranda, ideal for groups or families. This way, each family can have their own private apartment, but share the large outdoor space.

Additional Price Information
Minimum stay: 3 nights.
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 nice house with a great service and absolutely clean. Very friendly and courteous staff. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Of the us selected guest houses us the Hirondelle liked the best !! Everything was just right (location, room ...) Great we found that the breakfast in our own kitchen was prepared and we could have breakfast on our balcony overlooking the sea. Just great; what more could you want ... <3 If we come back to Praslin, we would probably book this guesthouse again! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Hirondelle is a very clean, nice guesthouse with a very nice owner. Maggie was always there to fulfill our wishes or to answer questions. We had the Ocean View Loft apartment and could see the sea from the breakfast table. A wonderful experience in this apartment! Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were pure luxury for us. A supermarket is a few meters away, so we could eat great. Any time!! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Perfect location to visit Praslin, directly in front of one of the most beautiful beaches of the island in a strategic point to reach other locations. Warm welcome and availability always given with a smile by all the staff. Good breakfast served on the terrace of the room with sea view. Excellent cleaning. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Perfect location right in front of the sea, very nice apartment and well cared for smiling and helpful staff. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
We had a large apartment on the top floor with a terrace overlooking the beach (Anse Volbert). You still have a small road in between, but the beach is gorgeous and was our highlight despite the Anse Lazio. The breakfast was a hit. Always a large fresh fruit plate and then the staff in our kitchen always fresh scrambled eggs, omelet and bread toasted prepared. The house is very clean, well-kept gardens, every day the apartment was cleaned. Excursions can also be booked directly from Hirondelle. Is much cheaper than the agency and you will be picked up directly from the front door, goes over the beach, gets into the motorboat and off you go. The Vallée de Mai is an absolute must. If you have a rental car, then you should be at the latest at 9 clock at the entrance. There are few parking spaces that are occupied very quickly and there is no parking nearby. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was fine, especially the view Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
just wonderful, everything absolutely perfect, first choice on Praslin! The Cote d`Or on the doorstep is in my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches on Praslin, rental car would be an advantage, but not essential, bus stop in front of the house. Great restaurants in the immediate vicinity, you have to try, not cheap, but first class food and service! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything here was perfect and very clean. There was always an answer to every question. Even when it came to excursions, we were great helped. The owners always very friendly and helpful. The location and the view unbeatable. Shops in the immediate vicinity. Top. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very spacious and very well decorated apartment. Delicious breakfast made to measure at the time you want (until noon !!) Only downside: the road a little noisy when you're on the terrace Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very central and very clean. The cleaning service and the reception has worked thoroughly and always satisfied. The security has given us a very safe feeling. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very friendly staff, good location near the beach. Breakfast was prepared on the terrace. Simple meal, but probably a European-standard breakfast is also not typical for the Seychelles Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super nice staff. Great location, great clean room. I can only recommend Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful housing. Very nice home. Ideal location on the Gold Coast. The accommodation (# 3) was spacious and very clean. Housekeeping done daily. We appreciated the kindness of Maggy at the reception and the loan of beach towels. The advice for renting cars or excursions was always very wise and the best value for money. Go without worry, you will not go wrong by booking in this guest house. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Everything perfect. The location right on the Anse Volbert outstanding. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Hirondelle is a property located in Cote d'Or, facing the beach of Anse Volbert from which it is separated only by road. The location is perfect and central to walk to everything you need: restaurants, bank, market etc. For those who do not own a car, the bus stop is right in front. The apartments, all with private terrace or patio are very nice, very clean and equipped with an equipped kitchen. All the staff, starting from Mrs. Emilia is very kind and always ready to meet the needs of the guest. Excellent value for money Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Great apartment. Great service. At breakfast everything was there. Small and therefore good privacy. From the balcony we had sea view. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Location and cleanliness were excellent. The staff in the house was average friendly. Especially great we found the breakfast service with order at the desired time and preparation in the apartment. That was really great. Unfortunately, right next to the apartment there was a construction site, where "only" 9-16 hours worked, but that was the breakfast was affected every day and we were practically during the day not in the apartment, because you especially in the Holiday wants to have his peace. Without this impairment, I would have given 4 stars. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The apartment was very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Everyone had an open ear for questions or problems. The breakfast in our kitchen we found great. It was every day inquired what we wanted for eggs, fried eggs, scrambled eggs or similar. Everything was delicious. Especially the banana bread was delicious. Unfortunately only once because it is only on Sundays. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The guest house is a smaller complex with only a few rooms. The highlight for us was the breakfast, which was prepared in the room and prepared. The staff was great, be it at the front desk with excursion tips, organizing a rental car, by telephone reservation on a special beach or booking a boat trip. Here you could have waived the tour guide on site. Due to the immediate location at the center of a village you could use everything for dinner. From take away to a simple Creole restaurant to a good restaurant. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation is 100% recommended, be it the location, the friendliness of the front desk or the breakfast staff. Information and recommendations have a hand and foot and brought wonderful impressions. Garden, house and rooms were bicobello clean. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Excellent accommodation, reception and service perfect. Would book this accommodation again anytime! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice accommodation; good and friendly service; very clean. We had an apartment on the ground floor; However, the rooms on the first floor have a view of the sea, and you will not be disturbed by the noise of the guests in the floor above (the house is quite noisy). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation fully met our expectations. The room was spacious the equipment of the kitchen was good. There was even a freezer. At low tide the beach was a bit narrow and after heavy wind we had to fight partly with seagrass. Then you had to walk a few meters further. We missed the market stalls in the evening. There was only one food truck which closed at around 19:00 o'clock. But there were many different restaurants and an Italian ice cream parlor. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The location right on the beach is perfect. Various restaurants and small supermarkets, as well as a barter school and a massage studio are within walking distance. The staff is very nice and accommodating, the breakfast is freshly prepared in the room and is very rich. Nice furniture, very good quality, everything was very clean. We felt very comfortable Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super nice reception Good service Ideal location right on the beach super for swimming Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The facilities, the service and in particular the room service are in no way inferior to a luxury resort! At the reception you have with Maggie or the boss competent contact persons who always help you: In the morning ask for a rental car for the same day? No problem, works! The location at the Anse Volbert is great. The infrastructure around it (bus stops, ATMs, several small supermarkets, a food truck, several restaurants) is also great! The house beach meets all clichés (super fine light sand, palm trees, rocks & the turquoise blue Indian Ocean). The kitchen is very well equipped and that the room service also does the dishes, we were completely thrilled. Speaking of room service: The cleanliness of the apartment was absolutely perfect, daily towel change (including towel for the sink) and beach towels included. The Wi-Fi Seychelles is probably also very good. (Video) calls with Facetime / Skype or sometimes even Netflix went well. So far we can recommend this accommodation without reservation. The only downer I would not hide: The location right on the main street. The traffic has disturbed us differently: one hardly, the other at times. Noise-sensitive contemporaries or people looking for heavenly tranquility, we would not recommend the property. Overall rating: Very good performance at a very good price! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
1a. Very friendly owners - Emilia speaks German. Very clean - the staff all very friendly. Any time Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
One thing in advance! Our apartment had a great view to the beach Cote dÒr, was very clean and with great attention to detail. The breakfast on the terrace was prepared every morning to our liking. Fresh fruits, juice, coffee, toast, croissant, etc. The location is outstanding. You can start right in front of the house by bus on time, nearby there are good restaurants, ice cream parlor, small supermarket, traders with fresh fruits, souvenir shop, bank, etc. The take aways were good. The owner is super nice and speaks German. She gave us a lot of good tips. It also offers its own, very good trips to the surrounding islands. Only to recommend. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All bingo in Hirondelle Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our favourite! Great location !! Very clean and well maintained. Very nice hosts. Warm welcome! The room was just beautiful and we felt right at home! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation is simply magnificent, located on the beach Anse Volbert on the Cote d'or and is ideally located for all kinds of excursions. The bus stops are right outside the door. The accommodation is well maintained and the rooms very clean. The owner Emilia was very nice and helpful, by the way speaks very good German. The absolute highlight is the breakfast, which is served directly in the room on the terrace or balcony. Highly recommended. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were greeted very friendly in the Hirondelle and had a spacious and well-kept suite. The breakfast was served in the room, which we found very nice. The location of the Hirondelle right on the Anse Volbert was perfect. Even though we visited many other beaches during the day, it was always like coming home in the evening and we always let the day fade away on this beautiful beach. Supermarket was not far. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
a place to feel good, hospitality and cleanliness top Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The best of our accommodations. Very nice reception. Rooms were ready early. Fantastic sea view. Very friendly and helpful owners. Emilia speak very good German. We also booked a trip. This one was very nice too. Wi-Fi for free. Beach towels are provided. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Outstanding. Everything was clean and well maintained. Owner and staff super nice and helpful. Very good location. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Highly recommended - small drawback: beach view just across the street in between. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Excellent Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean, very good and modern equipped accommodation. Everything as described available. From our Seaview apartment we had a magnificent view of the Indian Ocean. The owner speaks excellent German and is very helpful. The location on the Cote D'Or is excellent. Only a short drive to Anse Lazio. Several bars, restaurants and supermarkets are in the immediate vicinity, so that the food is not a problem. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our first accommodation. We had room 4 which has enchanted us with super nice view of the beach every night. The owner greeted us very friendly and gave us great tips. Breakfast was prepared in the room and we were able to eat on the terrace. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Absolutely recommendable. Everything you need. The owner is also German-speaking and is with advice and support to the side. But you have to live with the morning traffic. It did not bother us as big city dwellers. The bus stop nearby is advantageous as you can explore the island wonderfully with these funds. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Landlord nice. Good trip to Aride. Apartment spacious and clean. The ordered breakfast is prepared in the unit, eaten on the terrace. Very conveniently located for the long beach, take-away and shop. Bed was a bit narrow for 2. The road runs between the garden and the beach, but that was known. Positive: value for money and location. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything great !!! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The apartment was very nice and right on the beach (you just have to cross a street). We were very satisfied here and can recommend the apartment. Breakfast is always brought into the room and is really something new but delicious. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Courteous and friendly service. Very modern and beautifully maintained accommodation. The location is perfect for excursions. The bus stop is right in front of the property. Perfect! Delicious restaurant right next door. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The apartment is very nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. The Hirondelle is very convenient, a bit disturbing is perhaps the street right in front of the house. We had booked without food, you can go shopping a few meters further. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great apartment right on the beach. Unfortunately, the wifi was not unlocked for free, although this has been booked. The owner is rather cool and not very helpful, but her husband helps where he can. The breakfast, which was prepared in the room, was very good and varied. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
