Beach front paradise - an architects delight

  • 5 of 5

With the risk of sounding like parrots repeating all the previous positive reviews we must say: This place is paradise.

January 2017 we stayed two weeks in La petite Villa, and everything is like described and like on the photos – just real time. The climate is lovely – warm but not too hot and humid, the scent from the laburnum (golden chain) on the terrace is sweet and fragrant, the sea warm but still refreshing.

The house and surrounding garden and sea is so beautiful that we spent most of our time ”at home”. The location is perfect – no car necessary – you can shop at Popo supermarket in walking distance from the house – and they provide a free taxi ride back if you buy for a certain amount.

In Gran Baye, which can be reached by bus, there is a very big supermarket that provides everything. A taxi fare there and back is worthwhile if you want to stock up big time.

Gran Baye, is the closest place to experience a bit of “city –life” by the sea, and fishermen sell their catch right on the beach. Josée (La petite Maisons housekeeper) can also arrange for a fisherman to come by the house with fresh fish.

Josée took great care of us while we stayed in La petite Villa. For at small tip she helped with cooking and shopping and suggested what to eat. Josée is lovely company and very considerate: she taught me how to cook Briani and Vinday (curries), and even bought spices for me to take home.

We have enjoyed a bit of sightseeing by bus – great fun – and been on a full day trip by taxi. But mostly we have enjoyed the house, the garden and the lovely beach.

We have had such a good time – and are already hoping to return to this paradise one day!

Merci & au revoir!

Jan & Elsebeth (from Denmark)

A relaxing paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful and elegant beach villa has a gorgeous location right on the beach in Trou aux Biches. Still very private and relaxing garden where you can swim in the pool and eat Josée’s well prepared and tasty meals on the patio under the sun shade overlooking the ocean.

We walked the beach for hours, we dived on the reef and wrecks, we sailed, we hiked, we discovered the beautiful island of Mauritius. We just love to stay in La Petite Villa!

Bertrand and Stephanie are absolutely the best hosts, supported our one-month stay to be one of our best vacations.

It is second to none!

Incredible in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter (aged 8) and I have just returned from the most magical time staying at La Petite Villa. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Mr Piat and Josee who made us feel very welcome. Josee had cooked us a delicious chicken curry for lunch and then we walked on to the gorgeous white sand beach where you can snorkel to the reef and see the most beautiful fishes. We stayed for 10 nights and didn't need to rent a car as we just loved snorkelling and taking boats trips and swimming in the sea water pool. The house is very comfortable. It has everything that you could possibly want or need. Josee cooked us delicious breakfasts and suppers and she is wonderful. Roger was lovely and very helpful too. We loved sitting on the beach every evening watching the beautiful sunsets and walking down the beach at dusk. Lunches were by the pool looking out at the sea and having beautiful parakeets joining us for lunch!!This holiday was even better than we could possibly have ever imagined and we cannot wait to return. La Peite Villa is a little piece of paradise so thank you to Mr Piat and his family for sharing it with us. Best wishes The Grist Family

Great family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the grand villa which is spacious with three large sleeping areas comfortably sleeping six. With a generous kitchen and outside veranda only 50 yards from the quiet (in August) beach this was a safe and fun location for us and the kids. There is a small plunge pool if you need it too. The beach is clean and the sea is great for paddling or swimming. There is a supermarket and a couple of good restaurants close by but we found hiring a car pretty essential to get around the island. Weather was mostly good in August daytime but it gets dark by 6:30 with a slight chill in the air so you need extra layers. Sandana (the maid) was excellent cooking us breakfasts and keeping the place presentable. DVD players play English DVD's if you have kids! Good value for the price. Highly recommend.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 lovely weeks at La Petite Villa. The villa is very comfortable & the garden rolls onto the beautiful beach. The birds are delightful in the garden. We travelled a lot on the local buses to Grand Bay, Port Louis & Botanical gardens. There is a supermarket within walking distance of villa (20 mins). The maid was very pleasant & helpful. Thankyou Bertrand & your lovely family for welcoming us. We would certainly recommend the villa to family & friends.

Amazing Villa, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks and what can we say....AMAZING!! We have stayed in many villas before but La Petite Villa surpassed all our expectations. Bertrand, the owner was most helpful during the booking process and whilst we stayed at the villa.

Josee was there every day to cook our breakfast and if we had any washing to do she would ask us in the morning and by the afternoon it was laundered and retuned to us! She was truly amazing! If we needed, at an extra cost, she would cook our evening meal for us.

Its a great villa for families and Mauritius as an island has loads for families. We had a day out at La Vanille Crocodile Park which the kids loved (10 & 7) and also we did a boat trip to swim with dolphins, there was lots more to do but we did not want to leave the villa / beach as it was just so relaxing!

We definitely hope to return here again!
