Iles des Palmes is renowned to be the place where “Le Vasseur La Buse” deposited a cache of treasure at Anse Badamier. Hence the new restaurant is named in honor of this great pirate who sailed the Indian Ocean, and rest along the shores of Praslin and provisioned. Evidence of his visit or pirate presence in the area has been found, and placed in the restaurant.
The property is a former great plantation of Praslin under Myse Harry Berlouis. Preserved have been the Calorifer and distillery named as National Heritage Sites in 2013.
Old Pirate Oven has been discovered, which predates the Harry Berlouis era. We are working in conjunction with the National Heritage Foundation to take steps to preserve this valuable historical asset, of which only three are known to exist in Seychelles. The Heritage Foundation believes these oven predate the slave period in Seychelles.
