The well-maintained L'Hirondelle apartments are located on one of the most beautiful beaches on Praslin, Anse Volbert. From here, you'll have a wonderful view of the beach, and the ocean is just a short walk across a small road. Besides that, the location is rounded off by a number of shops, restaurants, and supermarkets in the surrounding area.
5 × Sea View Apartment (up to 2 people)
1 × Ocean View Loft Apartment (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- L'Hirondelle apartments are located next to one of the best beaches in the entire Seychelles archipelago, and are therefore the ideal starting point for a seaside holiday.
- People who like snorkelling will be extremely happy in this location, as there are several small boats which depart to explore the area around St. Pierre, which is the best place to snorkel in the whole archipelago.
- Shops, restaurants, and supermarkets can all be found in the immediate surroundings of the apartments, so self-catering is far from a problem.
- L'Hirondelle also offers an excellent continental breakfast service.
Precy and Emilia have been running L'Hirondelle for well over a decade, so their guesthouse is one of the more-established on Praslin. This well-maintained, spotless estate is located next to Anse Volbert, which is an incredible sandy beach which slopes gently into the water. Just offshore from the beach here is the beautiful island of St. Pierre, which is surrounded by one of the most incredible snorkelling reefs in the Seychelles. A number of other smaller islands add to the tropical paradise scenery. You can see all of this from L'Hirondelle, making this one of the most beautiful views you can have anywhere on Praslin.
A further advantage of the accommodation is the short walking distance to the small town of the Cote d'Or, which offers a number of shops, restaurants, and cocktail bars. This small town is located right next to the beach, and the extremely lively centre here contrasts the rest of the island of Praslin. This excellent location, combined with the apartments' excellent fittings, means self-catering here is a breeze.
Besides the kitchen, each of the 10 apartments offers a small lounge, a huge ocean-view veranda, and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. Thanks to the hotel's daily maid service, the rooms are always spotless, a real plus point for the accommodation. This fact, plus the excellent care that the owners take of the apartments, means that there is much to recommend about L'Hirondelle.
The ocean-view loft apartment is located in a separate building, and offers two bedrooms, making it great for groups. Alternatively, a larger group could rent out two of the regular apartments. Please note, however, that the apartments cannot be inter-connected; each apartment is fully-independent and private. However, the verandas of two of the sea-view apartments or two of the garden-view apartments can be joined up on request, creating a larger veranda, ideal for groups or families. This way, each family can have their own private apartment, but share the large outdoor space.

The trade winds between December and February will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin. This may make the water a little cloudy but also provides yet more evidence that the underwater world around the Seychelles is in top health. Please note that the opposite coast of the island of Praslin does not have this effect.

Excellent establishment. Warm welcome, impeccable room, breakfast prepared in the room (kitchen) and served on the terrace. Magnificent sea view. Close to shops, restaurants and Take away. Bus at the foot of the establishment to get around the island. We are delighted with our stay at L'Hirondelle in Praslin! Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
We have chosen the accommodation again due to the very good experience of the previous year. It is located directly on the seemingly endless white sandy beach of Anse Volbert, which is deserted compared to European beaches, even during weddings. In October, however, you should be careful of the sand flies on the beach (mainly in the shade) and lubricate well. We had booked the accommodation with breakfast, which was served to us in the room and partly prepared. As everywhere in the Seychelles, you always have to deal with a stunning friendliness of the people. The owner speaks very good German and is always helpful with advice of any kind. She also brokered a rental car for us from a competent rental company on good terms. All in all, we can only recommend the L'Hirondelle. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
