LA CIGALE ESTATE
Welcome to our ultra-exclusive 4.5 acre private estate, nestled amongst the
coconut palms on the edge of Cote d’Or, a 2km powder-white sand beach.
Our family has been farming land in the Seychelles since the 17th Century, and
this traditional plantation house was built to pay tribute to our ancestors. It has 5
grand en-suite bedrooms overlooking either the Indian Ocean or the tropical
landscaped gardens, wrap-around verandas, and plenty of living space including a
fully-equipped Techno Gym, tennis court, wine cellar and home cinema. There are
4 additional garden pool suites for larger groups or private staff.
The Estate is hosted by our fabulous GM, Maxime Rachel, who has years of
experience managing luxury hotels from Positano to Phuket. He will personally
take care of you alongside his team of 25 dedicated staff members including
attentive butlers, a Spa and Wellness Manager and cocktail mixologist.
The team are discreet and will respect your privacy while providing a 5 star service
infused with heartfelt Seychellois hospitality. A first-rate private chef and his team
create unscripted menus according to your taste, and meals are served
in picturesque locations throughout the property and surrounding beaches.
Sunshine drenched days can be filled with adventure and exploration, or spent relaxing and indulging in wellness,
long lunches and the best night sleep you have had in a long time.
We believe privacy is the ultimate luxury, and authentic cultural experiences are the spice of travel. Praslin has so
much to offer, with guided nature walks through the pristine Valley de Mai – a UNESCO World Heritage Site,
spectacular beaches, abundant coral reefs and a superb golf course. Guests can also sail to neighbouring islands
discovering hidden coves, free roaming giant tortoises and world class dive sites. We encourage our guests to
engage with local Seychellois life on the island, meet our characterful friends, and then retreat back to our
private, peaceful oasis.
As a family, we want to share our home with discerning travellers seeking an exclusive retreat on a culturally
exciting, geographically diverse and rich island, abundant in nature.
