Sri Lanka

Sometimes called the drop of water fallen from India, Sri Lanka is a dream destination that has a lot to offer its visitors. Still spared from mass tourism, it offers this pleasant feeling of being disconnected from the world, but the adventure is at the heart of it. Nicknamed the island of jewels, it carries its name particularly well with its many activities (beaches, water sports, hiking...), its unique cultural offer, very important religious rituals (dance shows, traditions and customs, Buddhist temples, remains and historical and prehistoric sites...), its unusual nature (protected parks, mangroves, highlands, mountains, various crops - tea, latex, fruit, coconut, sugar cane...). You will have the chance to discover a unique culture with its customs and traditions to respect, but also a gastronomy high in flavours that promises a journey rich in spices and discoveries.

Between Mahé and Praslin, you will inevitably find the place that suits your expectations! With a villa rental in the Seychelles, you will have your own little piece of paradise. On the island of Praslin, you will have the chance to relax on the beach of Anse Lazio and swim in the turquoise waters that border it. As a side excursion, head in the direction of the Valley of May, inscribed with the World inheritance of UNESCO for its floristic richness. You will discover the famous coconut palms, whose fruit, the coco-buttock, has become the emblem of the country, not only for its form, but also for its taste. On the island of La Digue, the experience is even more authentic with the opportunity to go for a walk, bike or oxcart through green ridges, to a sandy beach bathed by crystal clear water, Grand'Anse.
