A Rare Gem in the Indian Ocean - Residence on the Rocks

Villas De Maitre has extended its luxury Seychelles collection with the addition of this rare residence built with the nostalgia of the colonial era, real passion and love of exquisite craftmanship.

Mahe, Seychelles, October 22, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The villa is located overlooking Intendance Bay, South Mahe within a short distance to Banyan Tree Seychelles. Built in colonial style the villa has 2 bedrooms in the main building and a separate guest suite on the other side of the swimming pool. The main villa and guest suite are surrounded in front and on the side with the typical Creole colonnaded veranda. By the infinity pool on a large granite rock is the Sala, which can be used for outdoor dining or for massage. In a rock cave next to the Sala there is a large Jacuzzi. The villa has generous proportions with three spacious bedrooms, two with king size beds and the third is a twin with one king and one queen size bed. The master bedroom has a large dressing room adjacent to the bathroom and an elevated work/study area. There is a fully equipped kitchen/dining room downstairs. The main lounge designed to include a large granite rock has an elevated library with an entertainment section, Satellite TV and stereo. Two rooms have Dolby Surround Sound and wireless Internet. The villa has expansive outdoor living areas surrounded by large granite rock formations and a high perimeter wall providing absolute privacy and exclusivity.

"We welcome Residence on the Rocks to our collection for guests looking for the luxury of total privacy in beautiful surroundings. We are finding that many guests are looking for an alternative to a 5 star hotel stay on the Seychelles and this villa is a private home of exceptional quality and style," Says Julie Gauthier Director and Co-Founder of Villas de Maitre.

Style and Finishing
The owner wanted to create for his home the true Creole style and feel by mixing the blend of French, Chinese African, Indian and English cultures. Architectural antiques were painstakingly chosen and the villa built around them. The 16 large, old Haveli Palace doors sourced in India were of slightly different sizes the walls had to be "built" around them. These various open doors combined with the heavy insulation of the roof areas allow the circulation of constant sea breezes throughout reducing the need for air-conditioning. The floors are all of recycled old Burma teak. The colonial metal windows were imported from Kenya. The cast iron rail was acquired in Burma. Many of the furnishings are original antique British colonial pieces imported from India and Burma. All carpets were woven in and bought from traditional tribal village cooperatives in Northern India. The owner, a great traveller himself, has collected over the past 30 years the objects d'art from Central Africa and South East Asia, including some valuable tribal art pieces.

The Residence on the Rocks fits in well with the incredible beauty of its location and the guests enjoy an exceptional experience.
