A secluded rural location where you will appreciate both the privacy and tranquility whilst being within easy distance of a local village shop, and a little further afield, Mahebourg town's banks, shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and other amenities.

The sea-shore (which is un-developed) is a 5 minute walk away. The nearest Tourist Beaches of Blue Bay or Trou d' Deuce are a 20 minute drive along the coastal road, where you will discover long white sandy beaches with restaurants, bars and children's play areas.
The immediate shore-line although rocky, offers opportunities for fishing, snorkeling and boat trips.

Bird Watching and Animal Watching
Mauritius has some of the rarest birds on Earth. The Mauritius Kestrel, once the world's rarest bird, the Pink Pigeon and the Echo Parakeet, to name only a few, could be found here in the forested slopes of Lion & Bamboo mountains and the nature reserve of Kestrel Valley (formally Domaine du Chasseur)
There is plenty of wildlife resident in the area. You may spot Java deer, forest monkeys, feral pigs, hares, mongoose and tang. Fruit bats are the only mammals endemic to the island you will see them flying past you at night. One of the oldest creatures to inhabit the island is the giant tortoise. Other reptiles you will spot are the day-gecko, and skinks, which may be smaller, but are colourful and interesting to look at.
Trekking and Mountain Biking
The surrounding country side, is quite mountainous with forested valleys, rivers, sparkling clear streams and unexpected waterfalls. The exotic foliage is lush and tropical. Explore on your own or use our guide - there are many trails, of an easy or strenuous nature.
Bikes are available for hire on site. Use them for an invigorating off road adventure on the trails through the sugar cane fields and mountain slopes. You can also hire them for a leisurely trip to the local shop, or ride along the coastal road, with glorious ocean views.

The most beautiful place on the Island! I had a real pleasure to meet this people Paul and Maryline. Very comfortable, beautiful garden, view, delicious breakfast and dinner, fast wifi, dogs, walking in the forest, evening with some vine, life music and songs of local people... I had a few places to live in Mauritius and this one was so close to the nature and real non touristic part of the island. If you dont interested of only visiting beaches and touristic places, want to relax and feel the real nature of this beautiful island - my recommendations! Hope to visit Mauritius again... Svetlana Batura October 2014

Paul and Maryline are most friendly and welcoming without being at all intrusive. Their place is in a delightfully secluded valley a short drive from the airport along the attractive coastal road. I enjoyed both Paul and Marylines great local style cuisine. Good internet/wifi. Chris Harborne November 2014
