Air-conditioned ground-floor apartment featuring open plan living and dining area and a newly fitted, modern, well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar (microwave, oven, hob, kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer, washing machine, place settings for six, cooking utensils, iron and ironing board all provided). The living area benefits from satellite television. Sheets and towels are also provided for our guests. Our apartment is situated on a small upmarket complex of 36 apartments in Flic en Flac on the sunny West coast of Mauritius. The complex benefits from 2 swimming pools (one of which is only a few paces from the front door!), one with a children's pool. It is only a 5 minute walk from the renowned Flic en Flac beach as well as all local facilities including supermarkets, banks, pharmacy, taxi rank and a selection of restaurants. The complex has 24 hour security and there is a secure parking place available.
Local Facilties: Flic en Flac has everything required for a relaxing beach holiday. Within a 5 minute walk of the apartment, there is a supermarket which provides fresh bread each morning as well as all requirements for a self-catering holiday. There is also a small shopping centre with shops selling beachwear and souvenirs, a pharmacy and a cashpoint. Also within 5 minutes are a number of good local restaurants including Chinese, Italian and local cuisine, as well as bars and the casino. Life in Mauritius is inexpensive (provided you stay out of the big hotels!!!) and a three course meal for two with drinks will cost approximately £10 - £12. Many of the restaurants offer a takeaway service should you fancy a quiet evening in the apartment!! Flic en Flac beach is one of the best on the island and only 5 minutes from the apartment. Its fine white sand stretches for several miles and the beach slopes gently into the sea making it ideal for children.
Local Excursions: Close to Flic-en-Flac are several interesting excursions: Quatre Bournes market: Quatre Bournes is located 20 minutes inland from Flic en Flac by local bus service (bus stop 300 metres from the apartment) or taxi. Thurs/ Sun are best for clothes/souvenirs and Wed / Sat for vegetables / local produce. Markets offer a wonderful opportunity to see local life and to buy good value local crafts, but do remember to barter!! Quatre Bournes also has a shopping centre (Orchard) next to the market.
Casela: Casela is only 10 minutes from Flic-en-Flac and is a must for families. There is a small zoo with local wildlife, a safari ride and you can fish for little tilapia fish which the children love. Located on a hillside, the views from the restaurant are spectacular and the food is excellent and inexpensive.
Exploring further afield is worthwhile. Coach trips can be arranged through the tourist office or a taxi hired for a full or half day. Car hire is also easily arranged.
Holidaying in Mauritius - yes, it is affordable!!: A holiday in our apartment makes Mauritius affordable. Air Fares are £500 - £600 through much of the year, rising up to £800 in peak Christmas and school summer holiday periods. However, the cost of living in Mauritius is less than half what it is in Europe so your spending money will go so much further.......Mauritius with its uncrowded beaches of fine white sand, warm clear waters, friendly people, staying in a spacious 2 bed air conditioned apartment with swimming pools and tennis court costs little more than a holiday in Europe, especially for those impacted by the fall of the pound. Our apartment is also an excellent, affordable option for either honeymooners or people wishing to attend weddings in Mauritius, particularly those taking place in the West Coast hotels which are around 5 minutes away by taxi (we can arrange taxi transfers to hotels across the island if required). We can comfortably accommodate up to six people.
Bedrooms are well appointed with plenty of storage space. Bed linen is provided and changed twice weekly. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned.
The bedrooms sleep a maximum of 4 people (plus a cot for a baby). In addition, a double sofa bed is available in the living area to accommodate a 5th and 6th person. For over 4 people, please add an extra £5 to the nightly rate....moreless
Towels are provided and changed three times per week.
Maid Service is included three times per week;
Transport from the airport can be arranged for an additional charge.
A 'baby kit' can be provided including cot and high chair, and 2 days supply of baby essentials (milk, jars of food, nappies and wipes) for an additional £15 per week.

Our apartment is situated in the small resort of Flic en Flac on the West Coast of Mauritius. The beach is only a 5 minute walk from the property and is a long stretch of fine white sand backed by shady filao trees which slopes gently into the warm Indian Ocean. The sunsets are particularly beautiful from Flic en Flac Beach. Within Flic en Flac are all requirements for a self catering holiday (shops, restaurants, taxi rank, pharmacy, bank). Many activities can be arranged locally including trips to points of interest across the island. Of particularly interest are trips to see the dolphins in neighbouring Tamarin Bay, visits to the Hindu Holy Site of Grand Bassin in the Southern Mountains, trips to Casela Park which is a zoo with examples of local Mauritian wildlife (and some animals from further afield!!) and lots of activities for children and the unforgettable Ile aux Cerfs on the East Coast. Car hire can also be arranged for those preferring to explore themselves!!
Other Activities: zoo, quad biking, local markets, traditional Mauritian folklore evenings (sega dancing)
