We are on Praslin Island, the second largest granite island of Seychelles. Praslin is about 22 miles from Mahe' Island and you can choose one of the 20 scheduled flights a day operated by Air Seychelles (it takes about 10 minutes) or the fast boat "cat cocos" (it takes about 1 hour). Praslin is not as mountainous as Mahe', the highest point being 330 metres, but it has similarly great granite outcrops surrounded by beautiful beaches, and a coral reef enclosing the crystal-clear waters which are so typical of Seychelles.
The amazing bays and beaches on which, even in the busy season, you could believe you were the only person on the island. The sandy beach in front of the garden is a soft white powder that you'll not find easily anywhere else in the world. Fantastic granite masses form striking backgrounds to the beaches of Anse Boudin and Anse Kerlan, where the villa is located. And just 500 metres away is the five-star Lemuria Resort that has an 18 hole championship golf course. One of the famous symbols of Seychelles, the huge Coco de Mer nut, grows in the Vallee de Mai forest of Praslin, also home to one of the world's rarest birds, the black parrot.
The Vallee, a world heritage site, is just 5 minutes away from the villa and is open from 08:30 to 16:30. Paths are well mantained and clearly marked, and a nature trail leads you to all the interesting botanical species. To walk through the Vallee is to step back in time into a primeval forest, canopied by thick palm fronds that block out the sun. The silence is broken only by the call of the black parrott and the clatter of huge sturdy leaves as the wind blows through the trees.
In streams, freshwater crayfish and crabs can be seen, and the plants around you include the coco de mer, bois rouge, ferns, lataniers, coco marron, screwpines and orchids, all growing around the granite mass. fruit bats, blue pigeons, bulbuls, lizards, geckos, chameleons, snails and insects can also be observed in the Vallee de Mai.
Praslin is perfect to explore on foot and is covered by a network of walkways. There is no danger of getting lost as the island is so small that one needs only an hour or less to cross it widthwise
The garden is about 2.500 sqm and it is fenced with a granite wall (1.80 metres high) along the road. There is a pedestrian gate and a 4 metre wide gate with digi key pad outdoor and indoor. Along the 2 sides of the property there is a green fence 1.80 metres high covered with latanier leaves to ensure more privacy. Behind the house there is a putting green (5 holes) and a practice fence.
In front of the house the garden meets the beach. There are 25 big palm trees, and for safety reasons, we regularly cut the coconuts! We also have papayas, frangipanis, a breadfruit tree and flowers on the property. There is also and open air shower with hot/cold water, for rinsing of after those long days on the beach.
There is a fish cleaning area with barbecue. Parking area for 6 cars. The area is safe and the house is equipped with an alarm system connected to security.
