One Rare Holiday Villa in Serene Seychelles

by Paola Fiocchi Van den Brande

Welcome to a glimpse of paradise! Dive into luxury with our exquisite Seychelles villa, meticulously curated to indulge even the most discerning tastes.

As luxury villa rental agents, we meticulously curate our portfolio, ensuring every property meets the highest standards. Recently, I had the privilege to explore one of Mahe’s most elegant private villas, nestled in the serene Anse Barbarons. Accessible to just a selected clientele, Passepartout Homes is proud to have been selected as one of its preferred agencies.

Just a scenic 20-minute drive from Mahe’s International Airport, this villa boasts unrivaled exclusivity and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and surrounding islands. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the Property Manager, was offered a fresh towel and a home-made drink by the friendly housekeeper. A much appreciated refreshment on that very hot day.

Pictures do not do justice to the uniqueness of this private estate. Stepping through the imposing main door, I was in awe. Prepare to be enchanted. Adorned with an impressive collection of art, artifacts, and rare treasures from around the world, every corner tells a story of history and tradition. A collection of antique walking sticks and panama hats, family portraits, rare carpets, and exotic statues. You are instantly immersed in history and traditions. Impeccably designed, no detail is overlooked, ensuring each stay is unforgettable.

With a dedicated team including villa hosts, private chef, and security personnel, your every need is anticipated and catered to. The classic colonial architecture and lush surroundings exude elegance and tranquility, providing the perfect backdrop for relaxation.

Built in a classic colonial style with a wraparound patio, the villa features a large entrance hall adorned by a central indoor flowerbed and 5m high ceilings. The house, which has been owned by the same family for 3 generations, was built using luxurious, locally sourced materials, including an impressive coconut roof . Constantly maintained to very high standards, the home and its surroundings are kept in a pristine state and working order.

Bedrooms are incredibly spacious with open en-suite bathrooms as the traditional colonial style dictates. Each bedroom is uniquely styled, with large beds, fine linen and draping, antique furnishings and large French windows overlooking the lush vegetation.

The elegant formal dining room is adorned with silver ornaments and a crystal chandelier. The main living room offers a fully stocked bar and a rare selection of Baccarat crystal glasses. Evenings can be spent reading in the library filled with rare antique books, playing chess or backgammon in the purposely decorated games area or playing billiard in the expansive family room in the mezzanine.

A casual lunch can be served in the Moroccan themed snug room or in the pool house equipped with a fully stocked bar, tables, and sitting corners.

Days can be spent by the pool, resting under a patio, laying on your very own private beach or being treated with a relaxing massage. Walk around the estate through paths created with pulverised corals and shells or learn how to cook creole recipes with a local Chef. Fitness enthusiasts can enjoy a professionally equipped Technogym fitness room or with a personal yoga instructor.


The expansive private estate is filled with a lush tropica vegetation including rare trees and flowers to envy Kew Gardens in London. The manicured gardens offer plenty of space for relaxation including a kids’ playground and a turtle sanctuary. Tropical birds visit the garden daily expected to be fed. A handcrafted wooden door opens onto a private sandy beach surrounded by the typical tropical vegetation and soft white sand.

I left the villa with a sense of gratitude. True gems are rare to find.
