Guests staying in the villa will find lots of places in interest to visit in the region such as : Casela Nature & Leisure park, 7- coloured earths in Chamarel, more shopping and casino in Flic en Flac, Kite-surf in Le Morne, beautiful land and seascapes along the coast.

"Beautiful house and very kind staff"
We were in Mauritius in February 2013 , we was four adults. The Villa Filao responds precisely to the description and foto! Staff very kind and present. In the villa nothing was lacking to spend a beautiful holiday! Only a deficit, (for us italians) the television did not receive any italian channel and perhaps a more frequent cleaning of the pool.

"A memorable holiday in an idyllic location"
We couldn't recommend this Villa highly enough. The villa itself is newly built, and decorated to a high standard. It has all the benefits of staying in a five star hotel, but you get so much more space, privacy and facilities like the full kitchen, washing machine private pool and garden. Housekeeping each morning meant that we could relax and didn't have to worry about housework as one would at home. The meals we had cooked by the staff were delightful - very tasty local cuisine, which we ate al fresco looking out onto the sleepy, picturesque bay. A real bonus, and far better than eating in a restaurant, especially with young children. We were able to put our son to bed and spend the evening outside star gazing, drinking wine and listening to the gentle waves (not before walking to the end of the garden and out onto the beach to watch the sunsets and build sandcastles). Tamarin is very quiet & laid back - you get a real sense of what Mauritius is really like rather than being surrounded by the huge imposing (and luxurious) hotels. I think the Villa will be ideally suited to those looking for a relaxing or romantic holiday. It's very family friendly too (we had an attractive wooden pool fence put up for peace of mind) , and baby sitters on offer too. However if you wanted bars and restaurants, Flic en Flaq is not too far away (20 mins drive) or you could drive up to the clubs in the north (about an hour away, perhaps less at night). I have enjoyed diving on the West Coast and best of all the worlds top kite surfing location (and beach) can be found 20 mins away at Le Morne. We generally felt that nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Villa Salines, they were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. It felt like a home from home. We will definitely be returning.
Thanks Sara, it was a pleasure having you, Cristian and baby Joshua stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you again at the villa for your next holidays in Riviere Noire, Mauritius. Marjory
