Creole Recipes: Breadfruit

Exploring the Seychelles Islands you are bound to come across many soaring trees teaming with large, green, round, lumpy looking fruits – but what are they? This is “Breadfruit”.     Breadfruit has lumpy green flesh and a potato-like texture which can be served as part of a main meal[…]

Renovation: Anse Royale Sneak Peek

If you have been following us from the beginning, you would know that asides from taking on our huge construction project in La Digue, we have also been simultaneously renovating our other property in Anse Royale, “Le Nautique Mahe”. When we purchased the Anse Royale property back in 2015, we[…]

Hiking Trails Around Mahe

The Seychelles is renowned for it’s tropical beauty, white sandy beaches and lush green forests. While many holiday-makers prefer to laze on our warm sands with a cocktail in hand (who could blame them), the more adventurous travellers chose to lace up their hiking boots and explore the wilder side of the[…]

Timeline: Seychelles History

Working in La Digue this week, I stumbled across the latest copy of “Seyguide” magazine – a fantastic free tourist information guide on beautiful island paradise.

All About Seychelles

  Unhurried. Unspoiled. A hidden treasure. Just a few degrees south of the Equator lies a hidden treasure in the Ocean… like scattered jewels… garden islands hidden away from all but the most discerning visitor… a visitor looking for warm turquoise blue waters lapping gently onto soft white sandy beaches… but[…]

Creole Classic perfect for Labour Day

Here in Seychelles we love our curries hot and spicy, full of fragrance and flavour and with lashings of coconut milk (or even coconut cream if we’re feeling naughty – sorry waistline). Kari Koko Poul (chicken curry) is by far the island’s favourite dish, available in almost all restaurants and take-aways and the[…]

Seychelles National Botanical Gardens

The past two weeks we have been enjoying the ultimate #staycation, playing tourist as we show our good friend Sophie around our beautiful island nation. Last week was spent island hopping between Praslin and La Digue, seeing all of the tourist hotspots such as the Vallee de Mai, L’Union Estate and[…]
