Victoria (sometimes called Port Victoria) is the capital of the Seychelles and is situated on the north-eastern side of Mahe Island, which is the main island of the archipelago. Attractions in the town include a clock tower modelled on that of Vauxhall Clock Tower in London, England, the Courthouse, the Victoria Botanical Gardens, the Victoria National Museum of History, the Victoria Natural History Museum and the Sir Selwyn-Clarke Market. The town is also home to the national stadium, while the inner harbour lies immediately east of the town, around which tuna fishing and canning form a major local industry.

Beau Vallon is a bay on the north western coast of Mahe. It is located 3 kilometers from Victoria. Beau Vallon Beach, which stretches for miles, is a very frequented and maybe the most popular on the island. It is known as a base for diving and snorkeling due to its clear waters and coral reefs. Beau Vallon is the site of a bazaar of small food and souvenir stands every Wednesday and Saturday evening, year round. During the afternoon you’ll find local fishermen selling their fresh fish and farmers selling their tropical fruit in the shade of the big Takamaka trees. Beau Vallon also hosts a variety of restaurants including the iconic white building of Al Mare, and the pizzeria Sun Coco which is very popular with the locals and tourists alike. Across the bay is Silhouette Island and North Island.

The Victoria Botanical Gardens (also called Mont Fleuri Botanical Gardens Seychelles) was established in 1901. Today the Ministry of Environment is responsible for the Botanical Gardens and has its headquarters in it. The main objective of the gardens is to contribute towards the national efforts in environmental education, plant conservation, landscape management, passive recreation and eco-tourism. Some of the main attractions for tourists are the Coco de Mer trees, giant tortoises and fruit bats.

Our stay at this property was very pleasant and hostess Juliette was really helpful and friendly person. Property was very clean and had everything and more than we needed. It is right in the centre of the city and if you are too lazy to cook, the take away is just around the block :) Bus station near by, as well as the food supermarket and souvenir stands. Would love to come back in the future and will definitely recommend to all my friends! Have a nice holiday :)

My wife and I spent two weeks at les maisonettes with our two daughters and our daughters boyfriend.The property was spacious and bright,air con in both bedrooms and ceilng fan in living room.property was slightly difficult to find being tucked away behind other buildings.The location was better than expected as it was quite secluded with greenery all around. There was some noise but nothing too intrusive. We self catered which was a challenge at first but we soon got used to the market (10 mins walk) and enjoyed the fresh fish and veg.We did think it was quite expensive compared to the UK.We hjred a car as no beaches in walking distance but you could use local bus at around 40p a journey.Juliette the owners daughter lives next door and was helpful when we had any questions.Overall a very pleasant stay on a beautiful island,would use again.
