Our small and charming newly built Creole style semi-detached house is located in the authentic and lovely fishing village of Le Morne Village, with direct access to the beach just across the coast road in front of the cottage.
Great emphasis was placed on meeting ecological aspects in the design phase. An example is the installation of a solar thermal system for water heating for the kitchen, bathroom and washing machine. The house consists of 2 water waste circuits with 2 biological clarification plants, one for cooking fats from the kitchen and one for sanitary wast water.
Each apartment is a duplex Maisonette, the upper floor comes with two bedrooms and a separate bathroom. One bedroom is equipped with a king-size bed and sea view, while the second bedroom is equipped with two single beds and a mountain view.
You find the spacious living / dining room, bathroom and kitchen on the ground floor, where there is also a Patio for out door dining.
Le Morne Village is off the beaten track, so it’s a place to feel the Creole soul and to discover the original way of living on the island.
The cottage is located in a Mauritian fishing village – this means that you can hear the normal sounds of daily life in the village i.e. music, singing under the bath, acoustic guitar and bongo playing, children etc. At weekends parties are sometimes held on the beach or at people’s homes.
Sometimes however, the tranquility is only interrupted by happy children playing with mom’s stolen curtains - used as sail on an old surfboard, discovering the huge lagoon of Le Morne.
You find the nearest supermarket in the neighboring village of La Gaulette, approximately 8 minutes by car. Food, local dishes and beverages can be bought in the snack shop just next door to the cottage. If you want to have a seafood barbecue on the Patio you can buy fresh fish and other seafood from the fishermen at the beach just across from the cottage.
There is a bus stop close to the cottage, but we recommend a rental car for better mobility during your stay on the island.
The best travel time for surfing on the island is from May to October, this is winter on Mauritius (22-25 degrees) and you have reliable winds. Midsummer is from December to February, great beach weather with approximately 30 degrees, but changing wind conditions!
You find anything that makes the heart of a surfer beat faster: flat water, and a shallow area, just in front of the house and not crowded. After a downwind trip of 10 minutes you can find waves for beginners (little reef), waves for advanced surfers (manawa) and expert waves (one eye). Depending on the wind direction surfing and kite surfing is possible right from your doorstep.
