    Le Nautique

    Although this small boutique offering opened in 2018, owner Natasha's family has longstanding roots on the island. Together with her Australian husband Stuart, the pair have created a fantastic retreat that feels both casual and luxurious. The Creole-style cottages with gabled roofs and shady verandahs have airy, nautical-themed rooms that would sit comfortably on the pages of House & Garden magazine.

    Le Domaine de L'Orangeraie Resort & Spa

    This dramatic 63-suite resort climbs its way up the tree-covered slope that overlooks the harbour, with spacious, well-appointed villas nestled among giant granite boulders. Its two restaurants, bar area and private pool are all on the oceanfront, which is just a skip across the road from reception. The spa, with staggering views, sits at the top of the hill.

    Maison Charme de L'Île

    Maison Charme de L'île offers home-style comfort, friendly staff and a super-quiet location for an affordable price. A two-minute bike ride from the waterfront, the four roomy, light-drenched, lovingly kept apartments have been styled with flair (even the kitchens), and there's a tiny corner pool to beat the heat. Each unit has a front veranda and small backyard.

    Cabanes des Anges

    This peaceful place is set around a shapely pool and deck area. There are three rooms (two doubles and a triple), as well as six one-bedroom apartments that feature open-plan kitchens with bar seats, satellite TVs and large verandas. Everything has been designed with a cool contemporary crispness. Bedrooms are big and flooded with light, with tiled floors and shiny-clean bathrooms.

    Pension Michel

    Loungers, hammocks and other areas of quiet respite are just a few of the treats found in this pension's lovely garden. And set between the flowers, shrubs and trees are some beautiful little white bungalows, with peaceful verandas and vibrant trimmings of yellow and green. Rooms are flooded with light, as well as being comfy and clean.

    Anse Sévère Beach Villas

    Across the road from Anse Sévère (and one of the island's sweetest juice stalls), these three villas host six self-catering apartments. Apart from Number 6 in the original small villa, the five new arrivals feature spacious open-plan layouts with log-post beds, well-kitted out kitchens and plenty of stone mosaics. Numbers 4 and 5 have the best views and the most private verandahs.

    La Digue Holiday Villa

    These six stylish apartments nestled in a magnificently landscaped plot are decorated with the design-conscious in mind: a cheerful mix of wood and stone, sparkling kitchens, quality fixtures, and a soothing yellow and green palette. To top it off, there's a pool in the flowering garden. Breakfast can be arranged for €10 per person. Anse Coco (room 1) is the most private.

    La Digue Island Lodge

    Set along a beautiful section of Anse Réunion, this resort has a variety of revamped A-frame chalets and rooms. The best budget options are in the charming Yellow House, a colonial mansion at the back of the carefully manicured gardens. The most alluring are the towering beach chalets, which stare out to sea and feature ultramodern, semi-open plan bathrooms of dark stone.

    Calou Guest House

    This well-established venture continues to go from strength to strength, adding two new rooms with an extra bed for kids, and updating the other four doubles with hardwood floors, raised ceilings, large closets and bathrooms featuring design touches such as inlaid stone surrounds. There's also a three-bedroom family house (€50 per person) at the top of the rambling property.

    Cocotier du Rocher

    Although prettily decorated with local stone, wood and the odd sea shell, the real charm of this place is how the four bungalows (eight rooms in total) are embedded in blooming tropical gardens. Relax on your roomy veranda, complete with loungers and dining table, in privacy.

    Kaz Digwa Self Catering

    Serviceable and cosy are the watchwords at this welcoming abode that comprises two wooden chalet-like bungalows with shady wraparound verandas. Set in a beautifully manicured garden, complete with a hammock between two palms, the chalets are well appointed, relaxing and spacious – the larger one has two bedrooms – and the kitchens are brilliantly equipped. If you're too lazy to cook, meals are possible.

    Villa Charme De L'Île

    The new sister property to longstanding favourite Maison Charme De L'Île, Villa features five spacious self-catering apartments around a rather lovely pool. The open-plan interiors are bright and crisp, and everything from the bleached wood furniture and artwork to the royal blue and turquoise accents is ocean themed. The modern bathrooms are lovely and large, and feature freestanding soaker tubs.

    Château St Cloud

    Both eclectic and peaceful, this long-standing favourite has three room categories squeezed into its green confines. There's also a cavernous restaurant and a lovely little pool surrounded by towering palms. Pick of the bunch are the superior rooms, which are dotted on a forest-clad hillside, while the four deluxe rooms, set in a former colonial building, are super-spacious and marry modern and Creole design influences.

    Domaine Les Rochers

    Found down a lovely palm-lined road on the edge of La Réunion and La Passe, this verdant place offers four large, well-thought-out apartments with open-plan bedroom-sitting-rooms, immaculate en suites and well-equipped kitchens. There are also two separate rooms available in Villa Palmier, which share a kitchen (families can combine them for €240), and the smaller Kaz Vileya self-catering bungalow.

    Le Repaire

    Design-savvy travellers will enjoy the stylish furniture, boldly coloured feature walls, soothing tones and vibrant George Camille artwork in the spacious rooms. Outside is a lovely garden, a couple of petite pools and a spiffing seaside location (albeit one that's no good for swimming).

    Patatran Hotel

    With day beds on the edge of Anse Patates and a pool set into oceanfront rocks, this quirky hotel offers a few great perks and a wide variety of ocean-view rooms. Standard rooms (cosy, kitsch and dated, but clean and comfy) sit just above the road, though there's no traffic noise to speak of, only the sound of crashing waves below.

    Chalets de Palma

    Beneath the bougainvillea-draped arch welcoming you at Chalets de Palma is a delightful little pool and eight simple rooms found in four red-roofed bungalows. All rooms are clean and well organised (satellite TV, air-con, a private terrace, daily cleaning). The larger 'superior' options feature sliding glass doors and can accommodate an additional adult or child.

    La Diguoise

    An expansive, lush garden and lovely pool are the highlights of this well-run venture. The rooms in the two main houses are scrupulously clean and a healthy size. There are also two smaller, less exciting rooms in a low-rise building at the back of the garden. Several rooms can accommodate families (€50 extra per child aged two to 12).

  • Lodging in La Digue

    Bois d'Amour

    Privacy is put on a premium at Bois d'Amour, with just three beautifully designed and constructed wooden chalets (six rooms in total) spread out in its Eden-like garden of tropical flowers and exotic fruit trees. They're amply sized, equipped with kitchens, cleaned daily and have fans instead of air-con.

    Marie France Beachfront Apartments

    Yes, the three apartments above the owners' house don't have much island flavour (the white colour scheme is a bit too clinical, particularly in the dining room downstairs), but they open onto the seashore (no beach) and offer fab sea views – a rarity in this price bracket on La Digue. They all come with a balcony and a kitchenette equipped with a fridge and microwave.
