About this location
The Riviere Noire District
There is so much to say about in the western region of Mauritius, that we can concentrate only on its southerly part starting from Flic-en-Flac to Le Morne. The region between Port Louis and Tamarin hides two fairly nice spots that are the Albion lighthouse and "Montagne Jacquot." However, these spots are best appreciated when visited by sea.
The climate on the west coast is relatively dry and can get very hot in summer. It is therefore a pleasant region all year round, especially during the windy month of June to August. A T-Shirt (or less) is all you need in summer (November to March.) A sweatshirt or something warmer is necessary for winter evenings (June to August).
Up the mountains near Chamarel, it is advisable to bring warm, long-sleeved clothes, as it can get cool at any time.
Flic En Flac
Flic en Flac is a seaside village on the western part of the island of Mauritius in the district of Rivière Noire. Its public white sandy beach is one of the longest and nicest on the island, its lagoon is protected by the surrounding coral reefs, the beach provide spectacular views over the Indian Ocean horizon and of Le Morne Brabant Peninsula located in the south west of Mauritius. Flic en Flac is also home to some of the most luxury hotels in Mauritius, the Tamarin beach is situated a few kilometres away.
The southern half of the west looks and feels very different to the rest of Mauritius. Being inhabited in vast majority by the "Creole" population (i.e. from African origin) and with its savannas, the west definitely feels like Africa.
Due to the presence of several rivers and streams, the western coast does not have many bright white beaches; adding to its peculiarity. The west has also magnificent inland sceneries, which are easily accessible. It is the combination of these two aspects that makes the west a place to see absolutely.
There are several small and picturesque villages in that region; among them we would mention Flic-en-Flac, Tamarin, Chamarel and Le Morne Brabant.

"A Great Apartment in a Great Location"
The Good Bits:
Opposite the Spar for your shopping - we found it had everything we needed
Next to the ATM/cashpoint
Very close to the beach
Good nearby bars Mafiozzo & Kenzi Bar
We particularly enjoyed Kenzi bar such a cool place to hang out.
Good restaurants within a few minutes walk - Rib & Reef (Great Food), The Beach Shack (Great Food but a bit pricey), Tidez Cafe (Great for a lunch time drink or snack), Sunset Garden (Good food, music on the weekend), Bois Noir (Good food and Inexpensive), Twins Garden (Good food and entertainment on the weekend).
Close to Sea Urchin Dive Centre - Fabulous diving, lovely people http://www.sea-urchin-diving.com/html/start_en.html
Close to Tropic Dream tours swimming with dolphins is a must and this company were great http://www.tropic-dream.com/tours.htm
Flic En Flac Taxis located outside Spar will take you on a tour if you wish.
Close to the bus stops, 34Rs per person to Port Louis, much cheaper than a taxi.
Lovely pool if a bit cold
Very well furnished apartment, all the fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and it had everything we needed.
An additional hot plate although one was enough for us (Prawns, garlic, chilli paste and wine fried up with some fresh bread lovely.
A Washer dryer.
The Not So Good Bits:
The sheets, as a few other reviews suggested the sheets smelt unpleasant, we have spoken to the owner and she is contacting the cleaners to remedy the situation although once the washer dryer is installed the problem should be resolved.
Anything with batteries, I think due to the humidity items in the apartment like the safe and air con remote did not initially work, all we had to do was remove and replace them again and it sorted it out. The owner has said the local agents will check the appliances before people stay.
The WiFi, it always worked absolutely fine but as it was the shared complex WiFi it only worked on the patio or if close to the window.
Above all a great apartment in a great location, we would definitely stay again if we returned to Flic En Flac.

"Flic en Flac Peuplier"
We spent 18 nights stay in a very good studio. Our goal was to spend our holiday in a warm country. Mauritius is this country. Perfect stay. Our studio was large and confortable. It was located on groundfloor. In the first moment we were not so satisfied, thru the days we changed the opinion. The studio was very good equipped: bathroom, kitchen, bed, services also. We appreciate a cleaning services on a week basis, because we do not like daily cleaning services. The pool was also perfect. Besides many many pluses I have some small minuses: Wifi connection was not stable and we could not anticipate the time when the Wifi goes or not. The signal was not very good. The second thing in the kitchen there is only one induction cooker. I would be better to have two ones for preparing the food. At the end we spent the fabulous stay. If it is possible we will repeat this holiday.
Dear Milan, thank you again for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Please accept our apologies again for the WiFi disagreement: the internet service provider let us down on New Year's eve and took a couple of days to resolve the situation. Happily enough, the situation improved in the early days of January and the WiFi issues are now solved. Regarding the cooking plates, we have already provisioned new dual induction cooking plates and I will be installing them in person this March. Kindly Yours, Vivien

"Nice studio but........"
Les Peupliers is a very nice and well kept residence, there's everything nearby - beach, shops etc.... The studio is big and has, more or less, everything you need. Unfortunately, we had a coupl… More
Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate your comments about the apartment, but we are surprised to learn that you did not find the bathroom clean enough. We can assure you that the cleaning lady was at the apartment on the eve of your arrival and cleaned the place thoroughly. My mother-in-law who stayed in the apartment above did double-check the apartment prior to your arrival and assured me that it was clean. As for the stains on the bed cover, again the cleaning lady had put clean sheets on the bed on the day prior to your arrival. I do not understand why they had stains (and apologise if there were any) but my mother-in-law who was there informed me she handed you two new pair of sheets. Unfortunately, I understand it was raining for a good few days and some of the towels were humid – as you know in Mauritius, all clothes are air-dried. Due to the heavy rain, some remained humid which later gave a damp smell. However, I understand as soon as you mentioned this to my mother-in-law, she gave you new towels. I agree sometimes these little things can be very annoying but my mother-in-law was there and she made herself available to ensure your stay was a pleasant one. I am sure you would agree that she has replaced and given you everything you had asked her during your stay.
I am pleased however to hear that in the end you had a nice stay.

"A well-kept residence and apartment"
It was our first time in Mauritius and, as we later realised, we chose a well-kept, secure and orderly residence, which, in addition, was 5 min. walk from the beach, and with an excellent supermarket, bars and restaurants across the road or near the residence.
All in all, we were quite satisfied with the apartment and the amenities offered.
The cleaning lady, who came by once a week to clean and change sheets and towels, was extremely thorough and diligent in her work, and left the apartment spick and span.
The garden and facilities were very well looked after.
There is free access to Wi-Fi except that is is very slow.
There were only 3 TV channels, two of which were in Indian and Creole languages.
The beach is very nice and ideal for long walks, but bring some suitable footwear along because the beach is strewn with pieces of coral which can be rather painful when stepped upon. The area is ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Bus services are cheap and go regularly.
Taxis are also inexpensive provided you are prepared to haggle about the price.

We enjoyed our stay at the Stunning Flic & Flac studo apartment. It is brand new apartment and everything inside the apartment is also brand new. The beach is a few steps away and the local SPAR has everything you need. There is a lovely sparkling pool right at your doorstep. The owner Vivien and his partner Nadia are very nice people. They will be able to answer any questions you have with regard to touring and shops and entertainment. There are some beautiful places to visit close by, Tamarin with beautiful sunsets and Le Mornay where you can go visit neighbouring islands on a Catamaran. We will most definately stay at this beautful apartment again. The room has an airconditioner which helps at night when it gets too hot ;- ) There is a safe and everything else a person would need during your stay. I miss the smell of Frangipani ;- )
Thank you very much for your review. It was very nice to meet the two of you and have you as guests in the apartment. We are very happy you enjoyed the apartment and its convenient location to local shops, the beach and the beautiful sites and islands on the West Coast of the island. As frequent travellers, we are keen to visit what the locals recommend, because we believe they are more likely to tell you about the hidden places of interest, their favourite restaurants and the shops where you can get a good bargain! So, we try to do the same as well for all our holiday makers! We always try our best to make holidaymakers feel welcome and have a wonderful holiday – and we are so pleased you guys had a good time! We cannot wait to see both of you again and remember, next time: canyoning!
