The rooms

BOIS D'AMOUR GUESTHOUSE
The chalet bears the name of one of the many type of coconut found in the Seychelles, the “Red Coconut”, which is a big popular orange fruit well filled with delicious coconut water and which grows in the garden near the chalet.
 
Built in 2001, “Kokorouz chalet” can accommodate up  to 6 guests. With a length of 12,6 m and 8,6 m wide it is only 40 cms shorter than Kokoleo. In the middle of the veranda we there is a decorative wooden partition wall, providing privacy for the symmetrical halves - just perfect, if you don't like to rent a whole chalet.
 
Along the banana trees, a small stream naturally seperates the rather cosy garden in front of Kokorouz from the rest of the  with Kokover in the middle and Kokoleo at the back. After a sunny day on the beach you will appreciate the outdoor shower near banana leaves....enjoy sparkling rainforest feeling!

Built in 1998 “Kokover” or "Green Coconut" which bears the name of the most common coconut found on any island sof the Seychelles archipelago, was the first chalet among the three to be built.
 
Situated right in the heart of the beautiful vast garden of the property, unlike the other chalets, “Kokover” is not divisible. It is perfect if you want to rent a whole house just for you and your dear ones with just a common kitchen.
 
Designed for up to 4 persons, it provides a spacious kitchen, two double rooms, two bathrooms and a veranda.  One of the double rooms have an ensuite bathroom, while the second one, the bathroom is accessible via the veranda.

The island : La Digue

BOIS D'AMOUR GUESTHOUSE

LA DIGUE « ISLAND OF TRANQUILLITY »

The fourth largest island in the Seychelles (5km by 3km) and lies 43 kilometres from Mahé and 6 ½ km from Praslin.
La Digue is perhaps the most charming of all the Seychelles islands and is least developed and a firm favorite amongst visitors with stunning beaches, oxcarts and bicycles.
La Digue has still got all the fascination of an untouched world and it has a population with approximately 2000 inhabitants, where the rhythm of local life is relaxed and natural and should be lived as such, the beautiful colonial-style houses surrounded by greenery speak of times gone by.

Nid d’Aigle or Eagle’s Nest mountain rises to about 300 metres and covers almost the whole of the inland. The only lowland is on the west where Anse Reunion, La Passe and Union are situated. There is an extremely long beach with Pointe Cap Barbi to the northwest and Pointe Source d’Argent, backed by huge granite rocks appearing either pink or grey according to the rays of the sun

The best way to visit La Digue is to rent bicycles or ox-carts where on the south west and east coast of the island lies Anse Source d’Argent , Grand Anse, Petite Anse and Anse Coco is a film maker’s and photographers’s dream.
The island of La Digue is an invitation to a timeless paradise, where life has remained unchanged for so many years, surely deserves a longer stay.

Time seems to stand still on La Digue!
