The beachhouse is truly beachfront on one of best beaches of Seychelles - 15 steps away from the front door of the villa. The Anse Forbans beach directly in front our villa is white sand and unlike some 'seafront' villas, the beach house does not have a road in front of it. It is the perfect setting for large groups (such as two families/friends holidaying together) or a large family to have the perfect tropical holiday on a magnificent quasi-private beach.
Our beachfront villa offers an authentic ‘kreole’ experience in a fully serviced villa - there is an on-site Villa Manager + 2 full time housekeepers exclusively dedicated to the beachfront villa. Our traditional creole style Beach House is nestled in a tropical garden and on a quasi private beach of Anse Forbans. In fact, we have the best placement (in comparison to the 4 star Hotel down the beach — not visible from our beach side due to the topography) on Anse Forbans Beach. Anse Forbans beach has a coral reef and many of our guests enjoy snorkeling just a few meters off the beach.
Anse Forbans is a worlds away from Seychelles’ version of Dubai-esque artificially reclaimed islands where the apartments are all crammed in tight rows like a London suburb and are enveloped with sparse artificial beaches. Anse Forbans is relatively undeveloped. Not only does Anse Forbans feature one of the best beaches in the Seychelles, we have many of other top beaches just minutes away…..plus Anse Marie Louise and Anse Parnel which are both accessible on foot. You are in a private secluded environment. Our garden & Anse Forbans beach will make you feel that you have been taken away to another world far away. Imagine waking up and walking through a lush garden to lounge and swim at this magnificent beach, napping under the coco trees, swimming in the calm waters while your children play on the beach or in an enclosed private garden. The privacy and tranquility of the Beach House are further enhanced by a high wall and fence around the perimeter of the property. On the beach in the garden of the beach house, there is a corner shaded by coco trees - ideal for sundowners & evening meals. Alfresco dining takes on whole new meaning with the waves of Anse Forbans lapping at your feet.
Long peaceful nature walks whether on Anse Forbans beach or in the nearby undisturbed forests are popular with visitors. Kayaking, swimming and snorkeling amongst the schools of fish await at Anse Forbans and a short stroll away is the famous surfing beach of Anse Parnel beach. A local grocery store is only 200 meters away – step inside and you will be taken back to the Seychelles of yesterday with the warm service of the proprietor. The villa also offers a wide range of amenities for children (see below). Your children will love running through the garden or playing on the beach while the parents can lounge nearby on the beach or terrasse. The beachhouse has daily maid service and a local cook can conjure up local specialities and is highly recommended. Babysitting is also possible.
