Some of the most enjoyable hikes in Seychelles are in the North of Mahé and located close to Marie Laure Suites. These range in difficulty and offer scenic adventures through the lush forests, mountains and coastal vistas of this beautiful part of the island.
The popular Anse Major hike starts close by our property, on the same road as Marie Laure Suites. This relatively easy hike winds along the coast over granite slopes that fall into azure seas, through lush tropical forests and ends on the Anse Major beach - the perfect reward for your efforts.
Starting higher up on the Le Noile road that winds along the mountain above Marie Laure Suites are two more adventurous hikes. Dan Gallas offers a short and a full route taking you through the mountain forests and offering scenic views of Beau Vallon Bay below, as well as Silhouette and North Island in the distance. Opt for the full route and it’s a steep climb to the top to a viewing platform that looks over Victoria, the port and the islands of the St. Anne Marine Park.
The Mare aux Cochons trail also starts on Le Niole and this full-day hike takes you deep into the forest and high on to the mountain, before emerging on the North-Western side of the island as you wind your way down to the coast and the beautiful bay of Port Launay. Chat to our friendly staff, they will be able to help you plan your hiking adventures.
More Things To Do . . .
Great value for money: you get a private villa type of life, super quiet, with a pool, a bus to go downtown within 15 minutes and the Meridien 5 minutes walk away where you can have dinners or drinks. 2 minutes walk away there is also a fantastic little beach which is a lot less crowded than the others, but you can also walk to Beau Vallon from Marie-Laure Suites. The rooms are very clean, there is 24/7 surveillance and a/c + fans installed. The wi-fi speed is good and the couple running the place, absolutely adorable and available.
We were very pleased to find this wonderful gem of a place. This place is brand new and located just down the street from Beau Vallon, the suites were fantastically clean, tastefully furnished, and very spacious. It had internet in the rooms which we found rare in the Seychelles unless you went to the high-end hotels.
“Fantastic for families & couples alike.”
I can't recommend this beautiful place enough! We are a family of 7, we occupied 2 of the wonderful apartments at Marie Laure. One of which had a veranda which opened out on to pool side. The other was on the top floor and overlooked the beautiful coast line as well as a great view of the mountains.
“Excellent choice for a business trip”
Jack is an excellent host and runs a first class B&B operation. Clean, friendly, modern and well furnished. Excellent WiFi made it an idea location for my business trip as did the quiet atmosphere and wonderful mountain views. Although not on the beach the sea is only a few minutes walk away and can be reached through the Fisherman's Cove Hotel. Highly recommended.
“More than happy to recommend”
We stayed for two weeks. From airport pick up to departing Mahe our stay was a dream. Jack and Vanessa were the perfect hosts and could not do enough to make our stay an absolute pleasure. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the atmosphere is friendly and hospitable. Location is perfect with the beach a couple of minutes walk away and a convenience store a few minutes walk up the road, it is also very accessible to Beau Vallon beach which is a wonderful place to chill out. Happy to recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Jack and Vanessa for making our stay memorable.
“value for money!”
We stayed 6 nights in Marie Laure Suites. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and new. It is situated very good in the proximity of Beau Vallon, with enough restaurants. Le Corsaire is very good! The pool is good. Most important; it's a small, intimate self-catering complex that is very spacious, inside and outside the apartments. The managers are very willing to help you with any kind of requests.
I stayed for 4 nights at the Marie Laure and can really recommend it! Jack and his team are very friendly, flexible and helpful. This was the best B&B during my two weeks in the Seychelles. The small breakfast buffet is nice, my two dinners were lovely and the room is comfy and clean. Also, ideal distance to the smaller, quiet beach which is fantastic. I'd definitely come back!
“Great little complex, lovely pool”
We stayed 4 days it was clean comfortable and the managers couldn't do enough to make us at home. It's a wonderful base if you fancy hiking in the Morne National Park, very beautiful forest and cliff walks. Just down the road is a night club and Beau Vallon a short walk is a good beach and buzzing at weekends.
“My Island Home”
It is with great pleasure that I comment on my recent stay at Marie Laure. The managers and staff were very friendly, approachable and welcoming, they are a excellent team and deserve great recognition for their excellent customer service skills.
“Friendly and Clean”
Jack and Maya really know how to take care of people. This is possibly the best value in the Seychelles. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. They are a 15 minute walk to Beau Vallon Beach, one of the best beaches in the world. 5 minute walk to a little store for beer and snacks. In walking distance of some very good restaurants. The managers are a wealth of information and will help you in every way possible.
