After a month in Seychelles (Mahé, Praslin, La Digue) Hirondelle won the price as "best pension" voted by the whole family (party of 4) It's just crossing the route from a great beach. You find anything you need in terms of service (ATM, Shops) just a few meters around. And the new, fully equipped apartment was the best in terms... More

I would choose to stay here time and time again. The hotel is directly opposite one of the most beautiful, white sand beaches I've ever seen. The smattering of restaurants are a 2-3 minute walk away and there's a handful of well priced mini-markets. We stayed in 2 hotels on our visit to The Seychelles and they could not be... More

Stayed for 4 nights in april 14. Rooms were very clean and confortable. Very convinient location since it's just across the Anse Volbert beach, which is a good place to sunbath and swim. Also, it's close to the white tip diving center. It's also right next to the Cote d'Or Village.

We have traveled with a couple of friends and we have been at the apartment at the top with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen, it was very comfortable. The hotel is almost new, rooms are clean and the position is good to reach the famous and nice Anse Lazio. In front of the hotel there is the beautiful beach of... More

L'Hirondelle was the perfect place for our first visit to the Seychelles. The rooms are set up like a little apartment that completely opens up during the day and a separate bedroom with air con that doesn't open up. Bathroom has an amazing rain shower. They have everything to cook breakfast and are within walking distance of lots of little... More

This was our second stay at L'Hirondelle - they have done extensive renovations since our first stay and it is a huge improvement. The suites are large and modern, the staff and owners super friendly and accommodating, the facilities perfect, even for a group of 12. The location of L'Hirondelle could not be more perfect - opposite the most beautiful... More

First of all, we were in the new section just recently renovated. The room was spacious and very cozy, and the kitchen was fully furnished. In terms of location, the guest house is located in front of the bus stop, hence it's very convenient to move around. If you want to dine outside, there are a few restourants nearby as... More

We just returned from Praslin island and had a wonderful few days at L'Hirondelle Guesthouse. The location is fantastic if you are looking for self-catering - its close to shops and restaurants, and just across the road from the beautiful beach of Anse Volbert.

Situated a stone's throw from the famous Anse Volbert / Côte d'Or beach, this place is ideally situated - you literally cross the road in your costume and you are on the beach which was always virtually empty when we were there. The warm still waters and powdery white sand makes you want to stay in the water for hours!... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was a good experience, as the price is affordable and that is difficult to find on Praslin! The best restaurant we found is next door, and it is safe walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants and beaches. Our only problem being that our room was directly beside the road and the bus... More
