The Seychelles archipelago, lost in the middle of the turquoise and temperate waters of the Indian Ocean, is one of the most popular tourist regions in the world. Visitors flock here to swim and sunbathe on its magnificent beaches and to stroll through the tropical forest where they can sometimes come across turtles, lizards and rare birds.
About fourty kilometers from the main island of Mahé, we come upon a small island by the name of Fregate discovered, like the rest of the archipelago, in 1744 by Lazare Picault. This pirates’ hideout in the late 17th century now possesses one of the Seychelles’ most luxurious private islands.
Its seven beaches, among the most beautiful in the world, provide an ideal setting for anyone wishing to spend a vacation in a little corner of paradise. One of these beaches, the Anse Victorin, with its fine sand and transparent water, is a superb invitation to discover the marine depths and observe the multi-colored fish which add to the charm of the site.
Nestled on the coast and surrounded of the island’s lush flora, we find the 17 luxurious villas of on Fregate Island Private. Particularly popular with celebrities for their guaranteed privacy as well any vacationer seeking a peaceful venue in perfect harmony with nature, the private island offers its guests spacious residences whose traditional architecture blends in totally with the landscape.
