Le Sans Souci - a hidden gem

Located up in the mountains and away from the main towns, Le Sans Souci is a gem. The owners were onsite and could not have been more helpful or attentive. It is a small property and the feeling is that you are staying among friends. One evening we were invited up for dessert, even though we had not opted to have dinner at the property. Truly a gracious hostess!

The rooms had everything we needed, and the view from the deck was magnificent.

Le Sans Souci includes a car rental with the room. As it is out of town this makes a great deal of sense, but as North Americans used to wide highways and easy grades we found driving on Mahe to be daunting. The roads are narrow and the curves are out of this world. We only took advantage of the car one day.

We would recommend Le Sans Souci, particularly to adventurous drivers.

Le Sans Souci

A wonderful experience!

The rooms are big, airy and immaculate. The view over Victoria is stunning.

If that wasn't enough, what really sets this place apart is the hospitality from the owners. I ate there every night as they were so hospitable and the food so good. As a single traveller it was great to have some wonderful company!

I'd recommend Le Sans Souci to anyone.

Very welcoming and great food

1. The welcome was exceptionally friendly and the owners were extremely helpful and informative by providing maps and suggestions on where to visit.
2. The free wi-fi was much appreciated.
3. The quality of the room was excellent and the standard of cleaning was very high.
4. The food was very good with particularly good use of fresh and local produce. Breakfasts were feshly prepared and very tasty.
5. Having dinner together with the owners and other guest was particularly pleasant and enjoyable.
6. It would be quite difficult to find the site on your own so being collected by the owner was desirable and appreciated.
7. Being able to hire a car from the site was a bonus.
8. Made an interesting contrast to the Coco de Mer Hotel, in terms of location and intimacy.

Le Sans Souci review

The accommodation was lovely. The bedroom and bathroom were really clean. One fault was that there were no toileteries supplied and there was a small leak in the shower.

The proprieters were extremely hospitable, gave very good advice on areas to explore. We also had dinner on the premises one evening and really enjoyed the experience. They were so hospitable and the food was lovely.

The drive up the accommodation is not for the faint-hearted. I can see why they have complimentary car hire because the property is isolated from nearest town of Victoria. If travellers were not willing to drive they might perhaps feel very isolated away from all those lovely beaches.

Le Sans Souci review

You would be quite mad to stay anywhere else on Mahe. It is in the middle of the national park with unbelievable views over the bay and across to Praslin fruit bats flying beneath your balcony/terrace. We were there with the owners, some Canadian relatives of theirs and a French family.

Each evening the children sat separately and we basically had a dinner party with warm and interesting people.

The food was outstanding, distinctly better than the 2 hotels we stayed at.

The car meant we explored the island fully. We can safely say no expensive hotel on Mahe would have bettered Sans Souci.
