45 photos of the beach house, beach and garden




Welcome to the Forbans Beach House - a secluded villa ideal for large groups up to 10 people and that is only 15 steps from one of the Seychelles' best beaches. It was our family home for over 3 years and we are pleased to offer our Beach House to you with the benefit of our significant upgrade and refurbishment which we have completed in October, 2014. Our upgrade was designed to enable two families/groups travelling together to share the same villa yet maintain intimacy and privacy.
Our house is truly private and beach front - see the google earth photo of the beach house at http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=5742368662941008373#editor/target=post;postID=2605899064523393815
