Mont Choisy villa description

This 6 years old villa is artistically decorated and elegantly furnished with locally handcrafted teak furniture. It is located in a very peaceful and traditionally old residential area of Grand Baie. The village with its supermarkets, shops, bars, cafes, discotheques and beaches are easily reached on foot from Villa La Chaulee.
Maximum occupancy : 6 adults
Extravagantly large Master bedroom with double bed, 2nd/3rd bedroom with twin beds - all bedrooms have air conditioners & ceiling fans. Bathrooms with separate WC, showers with sliding doors, bidet etc . Fully equipped kitchen with gas/electric cooker, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, etc. Very spacious living room with 6 single sofas, TV, video, radio, CD player. The veranda leads to the swimming pool with large dining table and sofas. In the garden, a pavilion with dining table/benches for 10 is set for BBQ. Towels and linen are provided & property is cleaned daily by cleaner except Sundays/public holiday

Villa La Chaulee is quite unique in its kind. It was built with the purpose of receiving our sons who live abroad, our international friends and family, therefore whatever is found in the villa is of quality and of refined taste . Many guests who arrive for the first time in the villa are quite impressed, because we did not remove anything that were personal and dear to us. Everything was left in the Villa as if we were living there ourselves.

The garden around the Pool is really nice and quite a rarity these days. Not many rented villas still have tall old trees that are over 50 years in their courtyard. Most of them have been cut down to make place for the construction of more concrete villas for rental. We are happy to have kept our beautiful old trees because they continue to inspire admiration to those who see them for the first time.
Of course, there are bougainvillas, night jasmin, y-lang y-lang, hibiscus, flaming trees etc. and that the alley way from the entrance gate is bordered with tall Manilla Palm trees where creepers grow. Indeed, all the tropical plants are there also to remind us of the tropical origin of this Island. If you love nature and you are an ecologist and want to save the planet, you will experience what we, on a small scale, are trying to do.

In summer (December, January, February, March) when the temperature can reach 36o C, it is marvellous to be able to jump out of the Pool and have your meals under the shaded roof of our beautiful pavilion. 4 large, thick rustic wooden benches and a mega table can accommodate more than 6 persons. There is always a nice breeze blowing in that direction coming from the East which makes it even more pleasant to enjoy your food.
Barbecue can be organised, everything is provided for.
Many guests coming for longer stay bring their hammocks and hang them on the pillars of the pavilion to sit and read or just watch birds in the trees and admire the sky.
If you are tired sitting around the villa and garden, you can walk to the village (about 15 -20 min.) and go shopping. On the way from the villa on the main road, there are already, hotels, Italian & Mauritian restaurants, delicatessen, a supermarket, beauty salons, massage parlours, art gallery, football ground, sailing club, etc.

The most famous and beautiful public beaches are to be found nearby - local residents and tourists spend time lazying in the sun, swimming, or practicing water sports. Some of our Catholic churches are quite old and have a distinct architecture, either lying on the edge of the sea with astonishing background or placed just in the middle of sugar cane fields. There are reminders of our past as a sugar producing Island . Deep sea fishing boats set sail from the pier in Grand Baie every day taking tourists out for big game fishing. snorkeling on the reefs is a favourite sport

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About: Born in Mauritius, studied in London. Lived in Switzerland, Belgium, Africa and the Eastern Bloc. Enjoy living in Grand Baie now with my Swiss husband.

                          Why Mont Choisy:
                          We bought this property because we used to come very frequently on holiday here and spend time in this house. We loved it and decided to buy it and make it our holiday home. Since we decided to make Grand Baie our home base, we have renovated and enlarged the main house and built a separate 'Guest House' on the same compound. The 'Guest House' is what is being offered for rent. It is equally beautifully built in the typically 'creole style' with lots of wooden beams and ceiling, a scenic veranda that leads straight to the eco-friendly swimming pool, a kiosque for barbecue in the middle of a lush tropical garden with half centenary pine trees and flaming trees. It is really a dream place.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Because of its location in a highly residential area of Grand Baie, it is very peaceful, quiet, zen, away from the noise of the main coastal road and the village. But it is still very near to bus stops and taxi stands and other public facilities, like restaurants, beaches, banks and super-markets. If you are looking for privacy, security and a perfect place to unwind, this is the place par excellence.
