We rented 2x 2-bedroom Villas.
All amenities were in perfect condition and very spacious. Beautiful view on the sea and surrounding tropical forest. Huge bathrooms, outside showers, pool... all very clean. The beds were decorated with flowers from the garden every day!
The bonus: You are allowed to pick and eat fruit from all trees in the garden: Papaya, Starfruit Banana and Passionfruit were ripe, when we were there.
A bit off the main tourist areas but perfect if you are looking for a more quiet place - Rent a car recommended. Only a BBQ in the villa is missing.

we stayed for 6 nights and it was one of the best, The manager - Mrs, Ulrika did everything to help us
pool location is amazing
rooms are big with large terrace overlooking the sea where my child enjoyed having meals - but mosquitoes were a bit of menace which the staff immediately took care of
there is a superstore named seekar closeby

outdoor showers was fun
Must do - Praslin and la digue island tour which includes anse source de argent beach and vallee de mai forest reserve
there is a picturesque waterfall close to the villa
there is a small island close to the beach opposite the villa where we walked trough the water to reach it but was one of the best beaches with soft sands and clear waters

Room Tip: hire a car because public transport is not so good - any country valid license is ok to drive in sey...

We arrived with the usual jet-lag but it immediately vanished with the reception and recomendations for spots to go. Spendt 3 nites in this wonderful two-bd-2bath villa. Breakfast and dinners on the terrace with the finest view in Mahe. Bathrooms are 5-star, everything extremely clean. Teenage girls loved the pool to relax after the days at the beaches. Highly reccomend Mahe(western end-secluded) and this is the place to stay.

The very steep road leading to our villa (the highest up the hill in the complex) was intimidating but the car just made it up. The villa itself is modern, spacious, and has an unbeatable view over the bay. The villa is adequately furnished (except for matches, needed for the mosquito coils), well cleaned, and has one of the largest bathrooms we have seen. The location on the opposite side of the island from Victoria means it is very quiet but a long drive from shops and ATMs, so be prepared. A car is pretty much a necessity but that is also true of Mahe in general. Some of the best snorkeling around Mahe is close to this area, so we were pleased with that. Staff was helpful and pleasant. The fruit plants (papaya, bananas, etc) on the property were appreciated. Also, a nice small pool that also has an incredible view.

My husband and I felt that we could happily grow old in this place sitting on the wooden terrace listening to the waves crashing on to the coral. The very high ceilings huge open doors and space meant that the villa was cool airy and confortable We loved the outside showers and the over sized bathrooms. The swimming pool is niched into the rock the kids loved it.We were staying in a two bedroom villa and the staff had added three extra beds for kids wich was wonderful,finding accomadation for a family of seven when you are not millionaires is very tricky! There is abeautiful beach five minutes walk away with an island to swim to and typical seychelles rock formations.We met Mickey and Melvin local fishermen here (opposite the church) they took us on a boat trip snorkling, beaches and BBQ ( delicious fish caught and cooked by Mickeys wife who had been left on an island to prepare and wait for us in the morning. We would definately return to villasde jardin .

An excellent place to stay if you want peace and tranquility in your own villa. The villas are spacious, modern and well-designed and with large glass doors opening to a fantastic balcony overlooking the indian ocean. Really a place to relax while watching the sunsets.The staff is friendly and service- minded, and the manager Ulrika is making sure your stay is perfect. One of the best beaches in the Seychelles is 5 min by car from the villas, in a marine park. There you can sunbathe, go snorkeling and swimming. On the resort Ephelia located at the beach, there is also an excellent dive center. We enjoyed our stay at Villas De jardin, and would love to come back.

We spent last new year at Villas de Jardin and had a super time. We travelled the world, but this is truly one of the top locations to spend a totally relaxed holiday in peace and beauty. A place to return to for sure.

The view was stunning and invited to just stay on the large terras and do nothing but enjoy.

The Villas are well equipped, comfortable, very clean and on top equipped with free internet. Service is impecable and the resort manager Ulrike extremey helpfull. It has been a long time since people anticipated possible problems and also acted on them so we would have the most comfortable stay possible. This means : they care!

Port Glaud and surroundings are extremly quiet with lots of virgin beaches where coral grows almost up to the beach. However perhaps not so good for people looking for bars and restaurants. They are just not there. Just the local Indian shop, which has most ingredients to cook your own meals. Great if you're into this.
