Seychelles and Travel in 2021
It certainly has been a year for us all worldwide with COVID and we all need a break. Seychelles offers you the getaway you need and Chalets d Anse Forbans can offer you the accommodation away from it all. Located on Mahe in the small village of Anse Forbans on the beach you get to enjoy a home away from home.
We have happily hosted guests and workcation guests from all over the world in our family run self catering beach chalets/bungalows. Offering everyone the space they wanted while they relaxed or worked on the latest project while enjoying the fresh sea air and beach views.
Many guests have enjoyed the delivery services for groceries etc so they have just stayed at the complex and not needed to travel anywhere unless they wanted to. They have rather spent their days relaxing in the ocean and enjoying the sunshine and large gardens we host.
Not sure how to travel with COVID to Seychelles- just ask us we will help you each step of the way.
