We stayed in the Clef des Iles on the last leg of our 2 week tour of the Seychelles. We could have not picked a better place to spend the last few days of an incredible holiday. . The property literally is located on the beach only 50 meters from the sea. The beach is nice and clean and there...

First, let me say that the location of the Clef des Iles was exactly as advertised....firmly planted on the sandy beach of Beau Vallon, less than 50m from the Indian Ocean, within short walking distance to restaurants, etc. And, the owners and staff were first-rate, offering excellent service with a very friendly demeanor. However, there were some small items lacking...

We visited the Seychelles in July 2009 and stayed at Clef Des Iles. We travelled with our 12 month old twins and must say we could not have picked a better destination nor a better place to stay.

Without a shadow of a doubt Seychelles is one of the most beautiful places in the world and the location of the Clef de Iles (on the renowned Beau Vallon beach) definitely makes for a fabulous experience. Marquise & Stephane, the owners, are amazing and make you feel completely welcome – nothing was too much trouble for them. The accommodation...

We spent several days with our 3 children (19-17-14) at la Clef des Iles. We highly recommend this place: not only it is right on the beach, but the situation in the Beau Vallon long beach is excellent. We have been able to do snorkeling (much to see just right Clef des Iles), do swimming (not too flat and not...

We stayed at Clef des Iles in September 2008 for our honeymoon. It was actually our first accommodation and it turned out to be the best one!

The Clef is a phenomenal guest house that we basically stumbled on when our vacation plans to Bangkok fell through.
