Flic-en-flacq apartment description

B8 Laurier is part of a tranquil complex situated on the west coast of the island in Flic en Flac. This touristic area is renowned for its luxurious, shimmering, white beach, which stretches for over five kilometres, its restaurants serving Mauritian delicacies, and for Casela Nature Park, which could be described as a zoo with a safari theme. The apartment is only 300 metres from the beach and, within a one-kilometre radius, you will find all your basic holiday needs: supermarkets, snack bars, licensed bars, restaurants and car rental. Daytime activities include water sports and diving classes. There is the added attraction of a casino.

As you enter through the gate you will be welcomed by Steward, the daytime gardener and security guard. He is always ready to offer assistance and can also help to transport your luggage up to the second floor. Beyond the security hut you will pass through an alleyway of palm trees and bushes in bloom. This alleyway leads to the staircase and to the shared – usually unoccupied – swimming pool. Surrounded by deckchairs, the pool is an ideal spot for relaxing in the shade of the coconut trees. It is worth noting that this swimming pool never gets direct sunlight, which means that you can spend hours around the pool without the risk of sunburn.

Arriving on the second floor, you will certainly enjoy the splendid view of the pool and the garden around the complex. You will also catch a glimpse of the beach, which is just a few minutes away. In the living room, you can relax on the spacious two-seater leather couch, perhaps doing nothing more than enjoying an evening film on the 32-inch flat-screen TV. The kitchen has a modern look and is well equipped with oven, induction cooker top, microwave and coffee maker. Through the door leading to the terrace, you can’t fail to be awestruck by the magnificent mountain views – like a picturesque painting – a constant reminder of how beautiful and magical this place really is! We’ve arranged an unlimited Internet connection via Wi-Fi so that you can share these exceptional moments with your loved ones and friends.
The mountain views can also be enjoyed through the windows of the bedroom, which is furnished beautifully in modern and tropical style. There is also a digital safe in the wardrobe for secure storage of valuables as required. On the bed you can sink into a thick and comfortable mattress; there is luxurious bedding with synthetic, anti-allergic pillows. The air conditioning in the bedroom ensures a comfortable temperature for a good night’s sleep.

The terrace with the amazing panoramic mountain views is covered with an attractive synthetic lawn giving you the feeling of being in a magical garden. You can relax on one of the deckchairs and just admire the view while being caressed by a gentle breeze. This is surely the ideal place to chill out!

The bathroom is equipped with a washing machine and an ironing board, under which there is a storage area.

                          Flic En Flac beach is one of the most beautiful beach on the island. The area is still in development but already features some 4.5 to 5 star rated restaurants and night clubs. With authentic Mauritian, Indian and Chinese cuisine, Flic En Flac offers a great variety of dishes at affordable prices. Of course if you fancy fine dining for a special day, the famous luxury hotels are just around the corner.

                          'Black River (or Rivière Noire) is currently the place to stay as a holiday destination in Mauritius. It is the most popular touristic region of the island – not only because of its luxurious, sparkling beaches of white sand and its turquoise water, but also for its tropical scenery and nature reserves. When it comes to weather, Black River is the epitome of summer; it boasts the best holiday weather in Mauritius, making it the ideal place to enjoy your grand summer vacation. You will fall in love with the cuisine – both local and international – offered by the cosy restaurants in the region. Unlike other parts of Mauritius, Black River remains very much alive at night with a great selection of pubs and discotheques along with a casino.

                          Mauritius is renowned for being one of the best golf destinations in the world; the Tamarina Golf Club lays claim to having the supreme golf course on the island by way of its 18-hole championship course in Black River. It is worth noting that the club offers courses for beginners. Black River is also very popular for big-game fishing – just a few miles off the coral reef you will discover areas teeming with tropical marine life, including the yellowfin tuna and even ‘the king of game’, namely the blue marlin. Water sports are a must for many visitors to Mauritius and are readily accessible in the region: water-sports specialists offer diving, kite surfing and even snorkelling lessons. Most of the water-sports shops also rent equipment at a reasonable cost, enabling enthusiasts to admire the world’s most breathtaking coral reef and marine life.

                          Black River is also known for its variety of natural attractions, which include the following:

                          • Black River Gorges, a nature reserve with trekking and hiking trails;

                          • Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire, the highest mountain peak in Mauritius, where you can have a perfect hiking experience;

                          • Casela, a unique zoo, where you can enjoy an endemic dry forest, animals roaming freely (except for the dangerous ones), hiking and zip lines, not to mention having fun in their cute little farm;

                          • The Chamarel, where you can enjoy the stunning view of the highest waterfall on the island, the seven-coloured earth, and an adventure in the wild in its very own Adventure Park.

                          From Black River you can also take a boat for a memorable trip to the virgin islands around Mauritius. This area really has everything you could wish for – so don’t miss out on an amazing holiday in Mauritius.

                          As travellers ourselves, we are accustomed to the needs of tourists and we try our level best to satisfy all our guests. For a trouble-free stay in Mauritius this apartment is the perfect choice. We don't just give you the keys and walk away! We care about your stay and cater for your requirements.'

                          About the owner: We are young travellers who happen to own this amazing accommodation in Mauritius.

We will therefore try our level best to make your stay in our apartment memorable. We've arranged a 24-hour maintenance service if any issue arises; we also conduct a thorough check every month to make sure your stay is not disturbed. We believe that prevention is better than cure. Being tech-savvy youngsters, we are always connected one way or the other.

Kunal and Reshma Oogorah purchased this apartment in 2013.

                          Why the Owner Chose Flic-en-flacq:
                          This holiday apartment is our Zen getaway. Whenever we want to get away from the hectic working life, we just get a flight to Mauritius and enjoy the sea breeze, the mountain scenery, and the combination of silence and beauty. It is close to almost everything we need: beach, spa, massage, bar, restaurants, grocery shops – and especially the hawkers of pickled fruit! Being a small complex of only eight apartments, Le Laurier is very quiet most of the time.
