The house is ideally located on the north east of the island by Anse Gaulettes. The house is just a 15min cycle to bustling La Passe, but far enough away to provide a quieter and more relaxing spot. There is a small convenience store about 100meters away and 2 restaurants within a 10min walk.
Although popular with visitors, La Digue has retained it’s local touch, providing a glimpse into a very laid back and friendly lifestyle.
The fourth largest island of the Seychelles group, La Digue is considered to be one of the most beautiful islands with palm–fringed beaches, towering granite boulders and turquoise waters. It is also only a short sail away from the larger island of Praslin.
There is much to explore on the island – the fish market in La Passe is often bustling with fishermen selling their catch, bicycles are also for hire and provide the best way to explore the flat coastal plateau and beaches from Grand Anse to Anse Fourmis.
Situated further inland is the Veuve Reserve, home to a variety of birds including the beautiful Seychelles paradise flycatcher. The island also features one of the Seychelles’ most beautiful beaches, Anse Source d’Argent where silver white sand and exotic palms have made it a favourite for many photo shoots, as well as regularly featuring in Conde Naste’s top 10 beaches of the world list.
The wild, unspoilt scenery and friendly, laid back atmosphere of this exotic island make it a destination not to be missed.
La Digue is perfectly located discovering the surrounding islands. Praslin island (with its ‘Garden of Eden’ UNESCO site) is a great day trip from La Digue with regular ferry services taking about 20-30mins. Also, nearby Felicite Island, Sister Island, Cousin nature reserve, Isle Coco and Curieuse can be explored by a private tour.
To reach La Digue you can fly directly from Mahe by helicopter, however if you don’t want to take that option you must go via Praslin first. You can either reach Praslin by small plane or by boat. Although the plane is faster, the airport is on the other side of the island from the harbour, so you must then take a taxi across to join the boat for La Digue.
