Even from the outside of this quaint holiday home on La Digue, guests will be struck by the unique architecture of the building, which, being a two-storey house, is a rarity on La Digue. Anyone staying here can be sure of a holiday full of peace and tranquility, and will surely find themselves to be right at home both in the house itself and on the island of La Digue. The grace and elegance of the property and its tree and shrub-lined estate works well, and there is the possibility to look out at the shimmering ocean from the comfort of your bed, making the Granite Self Catering a real pearl of a holiday house. Even from the outside, it is clear to see the extensive, effective use of natural wood all over the property, including doors, windows, and the façade of the gable roof, which emit warm natural or reddish wood tones.
After being greeted by the owners, guests will immediately relax into a wonderful ‘home away from home’ feeling. Once you’ve settled in and unpacked a little, it is time to sit on the quaint veranda area and enjoy a cooling drink in breathtaking surroundings. Furthermore, there is a beautiful garden for you to enjoy, where you can sit back and relax, even under cover, or serve up a delicious grilled barbeque in the evening. The friendly owners of the estate, Sylvia and Aime, practically live next door, and are always available for questions.
The direct entry into the house across the veranda blends the interior into the exterior of the house, allowing you to always find the most appropriate place at any point for you to relax. The combined living/dining room includes an integrated kitchen, making it a likely candidate for the main living area of your holiday, provided you don’t spend your time outside that is. The interior is also augmented by the charming use of wood, creating a wonderful atmosphere as well as ensuring that the house has a real one-of-a-kind feel to it. In the fully-equipped kitchen, you will find everything you need to ensure simple self-catering, and you can buy fresh ingredients in the villa’s surroundings. Enjoy your meals either at the wooden table in the window-corner, or on the terrace (in fact, it tends to taste best under the open Seychelles sky anyway!) A small WC is also available on the ground floor of the house, ensuring daily comfort during your holiday and avoiding the need to go traipsing up and down stairs all day.
That said, the upstairs area is certainly worth seeing: there is a beautiful bedroom, furnished entirely using wood, and with charming, inviting colours, creating a wonderful, relaxing atmosphere. On the glass-paned veranda, you can sit back and enjoy the stunning view of the surrounding greenery from the comfort of your own chair; this is also the ideal spot to enjoy a good book. Thick pillows lie on the large mattress, ensuring a soft, inviting place to lie down at night or during the day. Wake up refreshed in your bed in the morning and listen to the relaxing sounds of the waves, or peek out at the blue of the sea, visible between the palm trees. Just next door, guests will find a black-and-white bathroom where they can freshen up for the day before enjoying a delicious breakfast. Or, for those who'd prefer the added comfort of catering, breakfast, a delicious Creole evening meal, or even barbeques can all be booked on request.
Granite Self Catering offers also a lovely apartment for up to three persons. It has one main bedroom, one bathroom together with a toilet area, one verandah and kitchen. It is partially made of brick and all the ceilings inside are covered with wood.The location is just beside the Granite Self Catering house but total privacy is assured as the garden in front is planted with flowers and a wooden friendly barrier is in-place as a separation. It is facing the outside kiosk and garden area. Guests have access to the garden area, even if the apartment verandah is not just on the garden ground directly.
The House and the Apartment both are ideal for couples or guests travelling in a group, families, friends etc) as they can just book both the house and the apartment and be close enough throughout the stay.
Thanks to the easy-access to several beautiful beaches, this accommodation is the ideal starting point for a relaxing beach holiday, where you can sit back and relax, leaving the stress of daily life far behind you. The nearby beach of Anse Severe ranks among the most beautiful on La Digue, and offers shallow, calm waters and an offshore coral reef that protects the bay from the open ocean. Therefore, this is the ideal place for families and snorkelling fans, who can enjoy the rocks at low tide and the beautiful coral reef at high tide. Thanks to the Granite Self-Catering’s location in the small harbour town of La Passe, guests also benefit from easy-access to some of the island’s infrastructure, including restaurants, cafés, bars, and small supermarkets, as well as to the authentic Seychelles flair that this brings. Finally, boat trips are popular from here, and you can also wander or cycle through the lush green vegetation of La Digue.

Spacious and very modern, excellently equipped, well-kept and clean guest house and very friendly owners who cooked us a super delicious dinner - booking highly recommended. The whole island is easy to explore with bicycles. Accommodation is a bit hidden, but you are very quickly at the beautiful Turtle Beach (Anse Severe), where you can do great snorkeling.

Very nice accommodation in a 2-storey house. The hosts Sylvia and Emil were super friendly and super helpful - almost amicable/familiar! The highlight were 2 Creole dinners cooked by Emil! Delicious! Both were also very helpful when it came to booking excursions. Cottage was very clean! Nothing to complain about. Since we had a great location with a private beach on Praslin before, I unfortunately have to deduct 1 star in comparison. The location here was towards the center of the island and with no access to the beach. But you could reach the "downtown" relatively quickly on foot or by bike. In addition, everything on La Digue seemed a bit more touristy/expensive - also in terms of the "subscriptions" of the hosts. Faster Internet eg for a surcharge. I can understand that, but something like that was simply standard on Praslin, for example, and I simply have to include it in the assessment. You could also rent bikes here, which was very convenient. As for sleeping: Subjectively, the bed was a bit too hard for me and the rooster woke up quite early sometimes (and so did I :D). But had a nice terrace and great facilities in the house and an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt. All in all a great, clean place to stay for a few nights on La Digue! Hereby recommended!
