Brigitte was amazing! From the very beginning when her son picked my parents from the airport, to her kind send-off at 6am, our experience in Beau Vallon could not have been better. The location was perfect, less than 5min walk to the beach and to nearby supermarkets. Car rental gets dropped off right at your door, no need to go anywhere to pick it up. The house itself was the best part - well kept, gorgeous, with all the amenities you could need. My mom especially loved the kitchen. This was our home away from home from the instant we stepped inside.
There are not enough superlatives available to describe the house, the setting and the wonderful hosts.
I have recommended Delpech residence to friend who also lived their time with Brigitte
My brother and I stayed here in March for his 50th birthday. The bungalow is set in a lovely garden filled with fruit trees and wonderful exotic plants.
There is a lovely terrace for sitting out and a barbecue if you feel like cooking up some of the fresh fish landed daily on the beech by the local fishermen ( I can highly recomend the 'job fish' it's amazing).
Inside the bungalow is immaculate . A spacious, well maintained lounge leads into the dinning room with space for the whole family. A good sized kitchen with everything you will need also opens out to the garden. There is a family sized bathroom with shower and three good sized bedrooms all with air conditioning so a good nights sleep is assured.wi-fi is available upon request as a pay as you go service. Top up cards are available at the local shops. The place is a real credit to Brigitte and her husband Ralph .
The whole family are the most wonderful people and made us feel so welcome.
Brigitte had organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport taking any stress out of us finding the house.
It is only a short walk to the local supermarket and pharmacy where you will find all you will need for your day to day grocery shop.
The magnificent beach is around a ten minute walk away. Miles of golden sand and crystal clear Indian Ocean await you ! The water is wonderfully warm and I swam twice a day at least. There are many lovely bars and restaurants ( many do take out) along the beach road and along the shore. Watching the sunset is a must ! Perhaps with a glass of takamaka or an ice cold seybrew ( the local rum and beer) and let the worries of the world fade away..... Ah bliss!
I can't wait to return and can't recomend the Delpech residence highly enough.
If you want a true taste of Seychelles life, this is for you!
In May 2015 we a family of four had planned a trip to the Seychelles and had stayed in Mahe, at Delpech Residence. The owners Brigitte and her husband made us feel at home in their modest but very comfortable accommodation. It truly is value for money. We loved the location. Very quiet, clean and secluded, yet walking distance to Beau Vallon, one of the nicest beaches in the Seychelles. Brigitte gave us tips as to where to eat and places to see, and her husband organized a boat to take us on a snorkeling trip. We so enjoyed our stay that we decided to go again this year in May to them.
We were not disappointed as we received the same warm welcome as earlier and Brigitte looked after all the small nagging details that one doesn’t want on a holiday like this, such as transfers from the airport and jetty points to Delpech Residence and back.
We hope to go back again some day.
My husband and I had a very relaxing stay at the Delpech residence. The house is quite large, there are 3 bedrooms (we have used only one of them), a living-room and a full kitchen with a dining room. There is air-conditioning in the bedrooms, a TV, a DVD player, internet and a washing machine - everything you need. The garden is very nice, too. The owners live next door, anytime ready to help, but you have lots of privacy. Brigitte and her husband are most helpful. My husband has stepped on a sea urchin at the beach and they have immediately treated the wounds with vinegar, so he was completely okay soon. The house is very close to Beau Vallon beach, there is a bus stop, a supermarket and a fruit stand (which I frequented every day) nearby. It is a wonderful place to unwind and relax, and great value for money, too. We hope to be back soon.
