Lovely villa
We only stayed there one one night, before flying back, but Adrian was really helpful and we had a lovely home cooked creol meal. The room was decorated in a Marrocan style, which we liked. The internet didn’t work great in the room, but it was fine downstairs on the terrace. It is rather remote from the beach, so you really need a car, but the views from the balcony are stunning.

Highly recommended
Nice place in the mountains, but just a short bus trip from many of the sights. And the manager Adrian and his cousin were both very kind and helpful, going out of their way to help me plan trips.

Amazing Seychelles
Beautiful villa on top of the hill with great views. You'd need to hire a car. Adrian was the perfect host and an amazing cook. Beautiful place beautiful island. Will definitely be back!

Perfect for my one night layover
I read all of the reviews and I couldn't get a sense of how close Villa Citronella was to the airport, as I had a quick overnight stay before catching the morning ferry to La Digue Island. Adrian was a star in welcoming me and has the CLEANEST room ready for me, along with my welcome juice (always a part of a welcome on Africa and Asia, it seems...). My driver was a no-show the following morning and Adrian arranged super quickly a cab to get me to my ferry. This was after an AMAZING breakfast with world class bacon, eggs, toast... and wow the chirping of the birds int he al fresco dining spot was unforgettable. The place was UTTERLY silent and pitch black dark after hours. I don't think I have ever had such a type of quiet in my life. It was extraordinary. I didn't rent a car and was glad I had not... even though my driver had never been there before (he had no difficulty finding it because he asked around before driving me there.). It was remote. The morning views were lovely. There are only four rooms at Vila Citronella. I loved being in a large old house. The bed was SUPERB, the shower was good. I was quite comfortable for my short stay. I recommend it!

Very friendly and clean
I stayed here for one night when I had a flight cancelation and needed something relatively near the airport and with airport pickup service. It was comfortable, very clean, and very friendly. The atmosphere was very peaceful, but there is not much that is easy to walk to.
