Bois d'Amour


La Digue, an island of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean with beaches of breath taking beauty, surreally shaped granite rocks and colours of incredible intensity. Fabulous birds enjoy fragrant fruits and flowers and a small village community shares a little piece of paradise between the sea and the lush green hillside rising up to 333 metres.

The smooth granite rocks protruding from the turquoise waters are part of the former supercontinent Gondwana, literally as old as time. With about 700 million years of age, these rounded boulders are even older than the surrounding sea.

The 115 islands of the Seychelles were initially uninhabited, people of different origin successively occupied the islands, mainly Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. To date this mixture has lived together in peace – friendly people who welcome you with a warm Bonzour.

Maybe the stunning beauty of nature ensures the peace, maybe the solid ground is the reason for stability in the islands; or simply the fact that you can neither starve nor freeze…




What our guests say

  • 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.

  • 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.
