Bois d'Amour


In the humid heat of the tropics you will appreciate the soothing breeze from the sea to cool you down. To invite every breath of wind, the traditional Creole House is built on stilts, with high walls and wood slaps above doors and windows, allowing the air to circulate beneath the house and throughout the rooms. This is emission free natural air-conditioning.

Widely spread in a large tropical garden at the bottom of the hill, four half chalets for two and one detached bungalow for four persons provide lots of space and privacy and everything you need for a relaxed self-catering holiday. Grocery shops are near and you will find supermarkets, restaurants and pizzerias within a radius of 1 km. Several takeaways offer good lunch and dinner at affordable rates.

You prefer to be served on your private veranda? With pleasure, feel free to order our breakfast from day to day, you are on holiday.


What our guests say

  • Beautiful

    Beautiful wooden houses, in the middle of a lush garden, bikes at the best price on the island, food on site if you want, proximity to a great take away, plenty of restaurant less than 10 minutes of cycling distance, close to anse source d’argent. Anyway everything is close on la digue, and you’ll have an amazing experience. Birgit and her companion will make you feel super welcome. The difficult part is leaving.

  • One of the most beautiful resorts we have seen on La Digue with it’s wonderful chalets and the tropical garden. The chalets are made out of tropical wood with lots of love and details. We really enjoyed the daily housekeeping service with the blossoms on the bed. Our hosts Birgit and Alvis were really friendly and helpful, gave us advice and tipps throughout our stay. We enjoyed their hospitality and focus on satisfaction of every single guest. They were always responding quickly to every request we had. The Bois d’Amour is perfect to explore every little corner of the island by bike, which Alvis had prepared already for us when we arrived (they are by the way in perfect shape and much cheaper than other offers). We definitely recommend Birgits and Alvis little Paradise and advice to stay longer on La Digue. We stayed for 7 days at the Bois D’Amour and have met lots of “sad” neighbours who only stayed for 2-3 days and wished to have stayed longer. La Digue is perfect to relax and calm down, its atmosphere is unique. For sure we want to come back. Thank you Birgit and Alvis for the nice time we had at your place.
