Fantastic location and beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday with our children and their two friends. Great space to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The house could not be in a better location with a beautiful view of the sea. Lots of water sports available right on the beach. The house has everything you need, with the help of Sadhana and Brinda. They were so kind and welcoming. Breakfast was laid out every morning, with pancakes waiting for us. Delicious curry was made numerous times for our evening meal. A little supermarket is within walking distance to pick up all you need. Very nice touch of embroidered towels and robes left in all the bathrooms.

Thank you

dream place friendly spaceful service-included

  • 5 of 5

one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius, facing the Coin de Mire, a quiet and splendid place, close to Grand Baie

the Grande Villa is directly on a private beach, this means we dined every evening on the terrace facing the sea, next to the pool and under the moonlight....

All the rooms face the see, you wake up with the birds walk out your room directly on the green to have a little bath before the sun burns you too much, and at 6p.m take a drink in the pool with magnificent tropical sunsets,...

The house is a two floor spaceful and well ventilated place, made for an easy tropical living

Most of all the maid is included and the service is perfect: for parents this is the key for great private holidays!!

We spent the week, adults and teen agers, eating typical mauritius and exotic spicy food, but you can ask Sadna the maid whatever you like, it was so restful and delicious!

Bertrand and Stephanie, the owners, are altogether friendly, boat-lovers and completely discrete

To make it short, a really magic stay, private comfortable and easy, in a splendid spot

Trip of a dream

  • 5 of 5

We are grateful to Bertrand for possibility to stay in his beautiful villa! We had unforgettable time and everything was perfect.

Villa is located in the centre of Treu aux Biches, 10 min by car to the big shopping center, and about an hour to the airport. Comparing with eastern part of the island It got a good, not windy weather, what makes it a magic place.

On the day of arrival Bertrand organised a transfer for us.

The area of the villa is secure, it has a private garden, pool, parking. Everything is well kept and comfortable in use.

The villa is very big, it has 3 bedrooms, big kitchen, living room, 3 bathrooms, and some technical rooms. Wonderful sea view from any room.

Kitchen is modern equipped, so one can feel convenient cooking any dish. On day of arrival the maid cooked us local traditional lunch, we tried mauritius cuisine. She offered to cook every day but it was not necessary for us.

Free WiFi works on the whole territory, even if you want to lay on the beach you can watch movies on-line.

Sadna, the maid, came daily, keeping everything clean, she was very polite and friendly.

On the beach you will see a big modern speedboat, if you want you can go for a trip, just ask Bertrand and arrange a day.

We were admired of a beach. It got white sand, good entrance into water and few people around. Undoubtedly it is the best beach of that we saw at the island (Flicq en Flacq, Tamarin, Le Morne, Blue Bay, Treu deau Dauce, Belle Mare).

In the sunrise or sunset you can walk or run along the beach or simply seat near villa and have a cup of coffee outdoor.

Overall it is an amazing villa with great facilities in a great location and I would recommend it to anyone.

Wunderbare Ferien in der Grande Villa

  • 4 of 5

Vom 19.04.2014 - 02.05.2014 durften wir 2 wundervolle Ferienwochen bei Mr. und Mme Piaz in der Grande Villa geniessen. Das gesamte Team insbesondere die Haushälterin Sanda waren sehr zuvorkommend und haben viel zum guten Gelingen unserer Ferien in Mauritius beigetragen.

Die Villa ist sehr grosszügig ausgelegt und hat für unsere 5-köpfige Familie mehr als genug Platz geboten; die Schlafräume sind angenehm klimatisiert und die Küche ist recht gut für die Eigenverpflegung ausgerüstet.

Alles in allem tolle Ferien an diesem wundervollen Flecken Erde.

Bis bald.

Fantastische Sonnenuntergänge an der Westküste

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei sehr schöne Wochen in der großen Villa verbracht. Zwar waren wir nur zu zweit, aber die Villa bietet bequem Platz für acht Personen. Sahdna, die Haushälterin, bereitet das Frühstück und kocht auf Wunsch für das Abendessen in der sehr gut ausgestatteten Küche vor. Die landestypischen Gerichte, die wir sehr mögen, hat sie ausgezeichnet gekocht. Fangfrischen Fisch, ausgenommen und filetiert, liefert Steve direkt am Strand vor dem Haus.

Der kleine Supermarkt Chez Popo im Ort ist mit einem Spaziergang am Strand entlang zu erreichen, den großen Einkauf erledigt man am besten im Super U in Grand Baie, für kleines Geld mit dem Taxi, wer keinen Mietwagen hat.

Spektakulär sind die Sonnenuntergänge. Die Sonne fällt um diese Jahreszeit genau vor der Villa ins Meer und der Sternenhimmel in der Winterzeit ist unbeschreiblich.

Empfehlenswert ist der Ausflug mit dem Boot des Vermieters Bertrand der direkt nebenan wohnt. Wir sind zu der vorgelagerten Insel "Coin de mire" gefahren, von der aus man -nach einer kleinen Wanderung auf die Spitze einer Anhöhe - fast ganz Mauritius aus einer besonderen Perspektive bewundern kann. Kamera nicht vergessen! Ganz herzlichen Dank an Bertrand für dieses einmalige Erlebnis und die fürsorgliche Betreuung auf ungewohntem Terrain!

Wer zum ersten Mal mit dem Gedanken spielt, nicht im Hotel den Urlaub zu verbringen sondern ein Haus oder eine Wohnung zu mieten, den können wir nur ermutigen. Wir waren zum vierten Mal auf unseren Trauminsel, das zweite Mal nicht im Hotel sondern ganz für uns in einem Haus. Mit allen Menschen auf Mauritius mit denen wir Flughafentransfer, individuelle Ausflüge (auch deutschsprachig) und Taxifahrten vereinbart haben, sind absolut zuverlässig, freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Nochmals ganz herzlichen Dank an alle in der "Grand Villa", die dazu beigetragen haben, dass dies ein unvergesslicher Urlaub für uns war. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen.

Britta und Martin aus Dortmund
