A unique hotel, once a former Vanilla Plantation House named after a small south Parisian town this hotel still retains the feel of its colonial past. On the estate guests can also visit one of the few coco de Mer trees still remaining on the island, or the giant tortoises which have been on the estate for generations, and now are considered part of the St Ange family. The hotel is full of old world charm and offers genuine warm Creole hospitality. It has a small and friendly relaxed atmosphere and embodies what you imagine is typical Seychellois accommodation.
