Built just a few years ago Maison Vue Des Iles has the character and appearance of a traditional plantation property. The private drive is gated and the gardens have a fine collection of tropical plants. Behind the house is a wind-cut granite outcrop covered in Bougainvillea. The interior is a real contrast, the decor is a modern take on colonial style, with white walls and sofas softened by wooden floors and furniture, a mezzanine level doesn't obstruct a view upwards 30ft to the rafters. There are huge oil paintings by local artists (including our famous neighbour Raymond Dubuisson) to provide color, none however can compete with the vivid turquoise of the sea that can be seen straight ahead through the folding veranda doors. Stepping through is breathtaking, locals believe there is no more beautiful spot on what is a tropical island paradise. The property has a range cooker, fridge, dishwasher, laundry, hifi and library. Most of your time will be spent outside, either in the ocean or looking at it from the sun deck or veranda.
The Master bedroom enjoys access onto a small private side balcony. Bedroom 2, also downstairs, has a bathroom across a small hallway, as with the Master bedroom there are folding doors onto a side balcony. Both bedrooms have a ceiling fan as well as air-conditioning. The mezzanine, when required can become an additional bed space sharing a bathroom with bedroom 2 on the floor below, to meet license requirements this space is described as suitable for children. The mezzanine is many guests favorite room due to the sense of space and the amazing panoramic ocean views from the balcony. It also has a library of books and DVDs as well as a comfortable reading area....moreless
Maison Vue des Iles is on land that slopes steeply down to the small beach and has terracing and steps. This means that children will need close supervision. The house is wooden and thatched and so the no smoking requirement is as much about guest safety as it is about personal preferences. Access to the house is through electric gates and along a steep driveway. Praslin is the ultimate destination for anyone wanting to visit a tropical paradise that has local life and culture. The house manager and house keeper speak English, Creole and French. We endeavour to provide the very best service we can. However Maison vue des Iles' incredible oceanfront position means that the wear and tear on the building and its contents is considerable. When items fail we try to replace them as swiftly as possible, but the Seychelles is a geographically isolated developing nation and some services and products are not immediately to hand. We hope you will understand. ...moreless

Maison Vue Des Iles stands down a private drive shared with one other small guest house and just 12 meters from the Indian Ocean; just below the house lies a small beach to which the house has it's own access. Immediately off shore is a shallow reef and the tiny island of Ile Malice, there are few better snorkeling spots in all of the Seychelles. The property derives its name from the collection of tropical islands which are the focal point of the stunning view from the balcony and sun deck. Anse La Blague is a quiet village it has a bus stop and a fabulous calm white sand beach protected by a shallow reef. Praslin boasts some of the most incredible beaches on Earth, plus a world heritage site The Valley De Mai once thought to be the original Garden of Eden. There are also excellent diving, snorkeling, hill walking, mountain biking, game-fishing and island hopping opportunities as well as championship golf course at the 5* Lemuria Hotel. All this and the Creole cuisine is amazing!
