The villa will interest those in quest of an authentic Mauritius and in search of a true contact with the friendly people of the island.The 2,500 square meters of the property with its secular tropical trees lead directly to a magnificient beach of granular golden coral sand and which extends for kilometres.With only one neighbouring villa La Villa Riambelle offers total intimacy.The 300 square meters of living space, the refinement of the furniture, the 30 square meter kitchen with its professional stainless steel equipment and the carefully selected staff guaranty the excellence of the residence. The secured swimming pool with salt treatment, completes the comfort of the villa and adds to the pleasure of swimming in the lagoon. The bowls yard awaits those interested in the game.
