Sleeps 4/6 massive veranda sun decks & private beach access

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.

About Claudette Otten

Dear Client, Welcome to the Seychelles, 'Paradise', 'Islands of Love', 'Lost Garden of Eden' - to name but a few of the names attributed to our beautiful islands, The Seychelles! Welcome, Bien venue to Maison Vue Des Isles! My husband and I and our team look forward to receiving your at MVDI and making your stay with us a pleasurable and unforgettable one! I am Claudette Otten née Jean-Louis. Although I am Seychelloise by origin, I was born and raised in Kenya and lived there for twenty-four years. In 1983 I met and married Jos Otten, a Dutchman and went to live in The Netherlands, where I have been living for thirty-three years. Jos and I have two sons. My husband and I both love doing nature walks/trails, we love gardening and snorkelling. Jos loves cycling and diving and I love making stone schulptures. Maison Vue Des Isles was built in 2008 by our dear friends Simon and Jan Rouse of The UK. Occasionally, Jos and I would give them a hand back then doing DIY jobs. My husband and I started running Maison Vue Des Isles as a Holiday Home in August of 2012. We do so with great pleasure. Since Jos' retirement two years ago, we run the establishment personally part of the year, and the other half of the year it is run by our very capable manager Ryan Savy. Please be our guest and see for yourselves just how beautiful The Seychelles really is. I promise you will not be disappointed! Thank you, and looking forward to seeing you in the very near future! Claudette Otten

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.

                                                                    Amazing property on a beautiful beach next to a small island. A car is a must, and the drive to town at night a little challenging first time around. Raymond the neighbor next door is a talented artist who is very welcoming, and has two tortoises on his property! We purchased a beautiful painting from Raymond as a remembrance of our honeymoon and stay. We were there for 5 nights during the middle of our honeymoon, and wish we had stayed longer.

                                                                    Ryan was superb helping us with car/pick up/directions/advice/restaurant reservations, etc.

                                                                    what a kind man!

                                                                    Plan on returning, maybe with friends next time.

                                                                    Incredible villa and location- beyond stellar!

                                                                    Tracy G.Northern CA

                                                                    La Maison Vues Des Isles is magnificent... the location is literally heaven on earth and the most pristine part of the island. We have traveled all over the world and have never experienced such a tranquil, beautiful and private site. The house is perfect, the swimming amazing, Claudette the manager is a total sweetheart and takes care of her guests like family. We barely left the villa, only to see Anse Georgette and buy food, because it was so extraordinary. The sunsets and stars are spectacular. The only neighbor is a super cool renaissance man and artist named Raymond, who is one of a kind and he treats guests like family too. We recommend this villa with the highest esteem.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Great stay!

                                                                    The villa contains everything you need.

                                                                    Maison Vue Des Isles was the perfect place for us. It was very clean and comfortable. We left the villa only twice to get groceries. Otherwise we were on the veranda enjoying the incredible view or in the ocean snorkeling off the beach finding fish, turtles, octopus, rays. We would highly recommend it for a quiet get away. Thank you for a very relaxing stay at your home.

                                                                    Mary and Mike, it was a real pleasure to meet you both. I could see you were in need of some rest and relaxation and I am delighted we were able to provide exactly what you required. There was really no need for a present, but I know whatever it is you have put in the post will be a pleasant reminder of a lovely couple and their stay at Maison vue des Iles. If you should ever return I would love to help you explore and discover the attractions the rest of the island has to offer!

                                                                    Island Paradise

                                                                    Maison Vue Des Iles is the place to be if you want a totally private, relaxing holiday with a view from the verandah to die for! My wife and I spent most of our time enjoying the view, which included a stunning little island right in front of the villa, crystal clear water, rolling surf and colors only seen in magazines: glistening white sandy beaches, unbelievably green vegetation and the magical blues of the ocean. Claudette and her team (Ryan and Debbie) made our stay dream-easy, from the beginning of the booking process through to the end of our stay. We were collected at the airport and driven to the villa, the rented car was delivered there, we were shown the property and the normal ins and outs of the various electrical implements (which included dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier) and were helped getting online for our internet addictions. All in all, our weeks' stay there was one of the best breaks of my life and I can recommend this property absolutely wholeheartedly. Thanks so much Claudette - we will cherish these memories forever.

It as a fabulous property in an incredible situation. The sea and sky are ever changing and it is quite therapeutic to just sit and watch and listen, We are also lucky to be just along the coast from Anse La Blaque one of the quietest but prettiest beaches on the island.

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 a championship golf course at the 5* Lemuria Hotel. All this and the Creole cuisine is amazing!
