“Zoli zil Sesel”

An Island Tour, Anse de Beau Vallon, Anse Etoile, Grande Anse, Anse à la Mouche, Anse Soleil, Baie Lazare, Anse Bougainville...white sands, majestic coconut trees, riotous lush vegetation, rustic fishing boats and rainbows of the day’s catch…
Off to the capital, Victoria, the fish market, the adjacent streets cluttered with “Laboutik”stalls.
East of Victoria, its port, gateway to exports of vanilla, coconut, turtle shells, guano...
The shaded and winding “Sans Souci road”, with its treacherous storm drains, leads to the "Mission", mystical site of a former school for liberated slave children, which invites to meditation under the shade of its old sandragon trees.
Breathtaking views of verdant mountainsides set on the turquoise sea jewel case of the west coast.
Tea plantations on the slopes, and buried deep in the countryside, at the turn of a path, "Lakaz", a Creole dwelling symbol of the Seychellois family unity.

Tour de l’île, Anse de Beau Vallon, Anse Etoile, Grande Anse, Anse à la Mouche, Anse Soleil, Baie Lazare, Anse Bougainville…sables blancs, cocotiers majestueux, retour à la nature d’une végétation luxuriante, butin de la pêche…
Arrêt à la capitale, Victoria, son marché aux poissons, les rues adjacentes truffées d’échoppes dites « laboutik ». Collé à l’est de Victoria, son port, exportateur de vanille, noix de coco, carapaces de tortues, guano…
La route ombragée et tortueuse de Sans-Souci aux bas côtés taillés à la machette, mène à la « Mission » lieu mystique, site d’une ancienne école pour enfants d’esclaves libérés, qui invite au recueillement sous le frémissement de ses sandragons centenaires. Vue à couper le souffle de collines verdoyantes sur fond de mer turquoise de la côte ouest. Plantations de thé sur les coteaux, et enfouies dans la verdure au détour d’un chemin une case créole « Lakaz » symbole de l’unité de la famille Seychelloise.
