“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!
