Both self catering accommodations gives you complete flexibility to come and go as you please, offering a home-from-home in a romantic and relaxing holiday retreat in the heart of the Anse Etoile district.

The accommodation offers guests the kind of comfort and standard the owner themselves seek in a holiday home.

With a fervent passion for gardening developed during his time in Seychelles, the garden with its numerous fruit trees and well-designed garden is a showcase of the owner's love for horticulture. You are bound during your stay to have the opportunity to taste the fruits of the orchard including some imported fruits from Guadeloupe; the owner's birth country.

Staying at Chant d'oiseau you can be assured of a calm tropical holiday and a real Seychellois experience with your host, whose house is located next door. They will you treat you like family friends that deserve the finest hospitality.

Whether you book the villa for your holiday, or both the villa and the apartment for a special celebration or group venue, you will find spacious accommodation in a wonderful corner of Mahé. They can be sold separately or together.

We look forward to your visit.

The Mahe region

The Seychelles are made up of 115 islands, a real tropical paradise with perfect beaches and clear seas. The Seychelles have a strong African influence in everything from food to the music. The islands are home to one of the largest coral reefs in the world, as well as a host of exotic wildlife. The beaches draw most visitors in, but there’s also great snorkelling and some great restaurants.

Once a fishing village, Anse Etoile is now a well sought after district because of its close proximity to town, 3 mins by car.Restaurants, coastal walks, beach

"Maison et séjour agréables"

La maison est à la hauteur de la description : spacieuse, bien équipée et bien située car proche de Victoria et de Beau Vallon. Dans l'ensemble la maison est propre et bien entretenue, idem p… More

"I stayed at Chant d'Oiseau trice in the last three years"

We enjoyed our vacation mainly because of.
- the fine assistance of the house manager and her extended family
- the always new beautiful sites, flora and fauna we saw under and above the sea
- the people we met

"One month stay in paradise"

We stayed in the basement appartment for one month and it was great! It suited our needs perfectly since we were doing thesis study in the capitol Victoria, which is only ten minutes by bus from Anse Etoile. The bus station is just down the road were you also will find two small shops.

The area is very calm and though the guest house lies close to a school this is not a problem since you are mostly away during the day. We would describe the basement appartment as spartanly luxurious, you will have everything essential like a washing machine and ok kitchen but not much more. The garden is absolutely lovely with many fruit trees like banana, papaya and pomelo, be sure to try out the coconuts too! Buy a fish from the market and have a barbeque in the garden is also a thing we recommend.

Our stay in the Seychelles was truly great and the stay at Chant d'Oiseau suited our needs perfectly. The hosts are really helpful and will assist when needed. Only downside might be that there isn't a beach close by, but there are some really great ones 30 min walk away. If staying on Mahé you will probably rent a car, or go around by bus like we did for 5 rupees a trip, and then you will surely visit a lot of beautiful beaches!

"A lovely home with beautiful gardens and easy access to Mahe beaches"

A really lovely home which my family made our home for two weeks over xmas and new year. Gardens are beautiful with flowers and fruit trees enabling you to pick your fruit for breakfast or flowers for the table!
Great location with local shop for simple things and only a 10 minute drive to Victoria for supermarket.
Christina and Anne were great in arranging everything we needed and in advance the car hire arranged locally which is recommended to travel around mahe to the many beaches.
Top beaches are petit anse, anse soleill, beau vallon and anse intendance. port launay and petit anse best for snorkelling.
Local chinese restaurant really nice and good value for eat in or take away. Best eating on the island at marias rock cafe and kaz kreol ! Veranda (near barbarons), sams pizza and pirates arms (in Victoria) also good.
Great diving with Blue Sea divers at beau vallon - eating at beau vallon good in fontaine, la plage and pizza barboa.
Would strongly recommend chant d'oiseau to families looking for a home feel rather than hotel and flexibility to travel around the islands.
Best trip was the day trip to st anne for snorkelling, tour of moyenne and creole lunch on the beach at cerf island - arranged locally by anne rather than with large tour group and fantastic day.
Look forward to visiting again with the family as soon as we have the chance.
Thank you ever so much to Christina, family and Anne for a great stay.

"Good house and friendly family : perfect stay in Mahe"

We can´t forget our holidays in Mahe. Mahe is a
wonderful island and its people very friendly. I have visited a lot of
islands of Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, but I think that Mahe
is special and more beautiful. The beaches and sea are the best that
I have visited.

But in the afternoon, when you return home, you need a good accomodation. And Chant D´oiseau has been the perfect place for our relax at the end of the day. Good bedrooms, big kitchen, living room to watch the tv or veranda for have a good conversation . . . well furnished, clean . . . quiet area . . .

And finally your attention and help,

Christina, since I contacted to you to book the house, the procedure was very easy and quick.

Anne, your help preparing the tranfer and car hire, the welcome, your
disponibility any time, has been perfect.

And of course send greetings to mum. Always ready to help. When you know that close to you is someone for any problem, you are quiet.

Simply perfect, thank you very much.

The world is so wide and has a lot of places to visit, but I hope return to
Seychelles. In all case if anybody ask me information about accomodation in Mahe, the answer is Chant D´oiseau.

"Very nice and comfortable house with beautiful garden in a quite neighborhood"

We did spend 6 days in "Chant d'oiseau". The house is recent, clean and big and easily allows 6-8 persons to stay and live without any problem. It is secured as the family of the owner just lives close to it. The garden is very nice with tables to eat, seats to hang out and fruit trees (mangos, grape fruits, lemons) and nice flowers. Anne is the perfect resident manager and helped us a lot to fulfill our needs and was always available.

The only drawback I can see is the fact that you need to walk about 20 minutes to access the nice beach of North Point. A car might be useful although there are many buses and the bus stop is very close to the house.
