Enjoy the Seychelles on this fantastic 14-night island holiday to Mahé and Praslin, whilst staying at three lovely places in contrasting locations; spend 4 nights at the friendly, owner-run Le Sans Souci, high up in the mountains above Victoria; then relax for 7 nights at the great value Coco de Mer; and finally, you'll be welcome at the laid-back Clef des Iles on Beau Vallon beach, where you'll spend 3 nights right on the 2km golden sands.
On arrival in the Seychelles, you'll pick up a Mahe hire car. Your first hideaway stands in an impressive location high in the lush mountains above the Seychelles' capital, Victoria. Its location isn't a 'classic' Seychelles beach, but it is absolutely magnificent. To drive there will take about 30 minutes, and you can then enjoy 4 nights at the small, friendly Le Sans Souci. Although not on the beach, Le Sans Souci is no less attractive than other places - this retreat presents you with terrific views over Victoria's harbour and the islands of Sainte Anne Marine Park. It's very friendly, and you're likely to have a relaxed, family-style banquet on the open-air terrace with your host Janine.
You'll drive to the ferry terminal near Victoria to drop your rental car before the 45-minute catamaran crossing to Praslin. At Praslin's jetty you'll be met, collect another hire car, and potter over to the northern coast of the island, where you'll spend 7 nights amidst beautiful tropical gardens at Coco de Mer Hotel. Perched on a gentle hillside, this family-friendly hotel overlooks 1.8km of white sandy coastline. Activities may include mini-golf, giant chess, walks on the free guided nature trail, or snorkelling – and if Anse Bois de Rose ever seems too busy for you, simply take the hotels free bus service to the secluded Anse Lazio in the north of the island!
Leaving Coco de Mer, you'll drive over to the ferry terminal and drop your car, before the 45-minute crossing back to Mahé Island. There you'll be met by one of our representatives and collect another rental car at the ferry terminal close to Victoria. It's then about 90 minutes' drive to the south-west of the island – where you'll spend the next 3 nights at Clef des Iles. Standing right on the golden sands of Beau Vallon, Clef des Iles is a simple and relaxed self-catering property. There are a number of local bars and restaurants nearby - including the popular Baobab Pizzeria just next door!
From Clef des Iles, it's perhaps 45 minutes' drive back to the the airport if you are heading home or elsewhere in Africa - or you may choose to extend your trip, perhaps by visiting one of the private islands!
