A great location with a quasi private beach + benefits from nearby and readily available restaurants, shops and services. Anse Forbans is located in the tranquil and peaceful south of Mahe. It is 200 meters away from a leading Hilton 4 star resort which offers dining spa, an ocean view bar to the Forbans Beachfront Villa clients yet the Beachfront Villa is secluded away on its own quasi private beach. Anse Forbans is considered by many to be one of the finest beaches on Mahe yet it remains quite and serene without a deluge of tourists during the week.

The Beachfront Villa itself is in a private enclave shared by only one other residence and is buffered from the main road by 20 meter high boulders to the rear. The Beachfront Villa is 14 Km from the airport with 20 minutes driving time on a scenic coastal road.

While the Beachfront Villa is secluded in the tranquil and peaceful south of Mahe, it has ready access to many nearby restaurants, shops and services, including:
