Then look no further than Villa La Chaloupe which offers a large private terrace and swimming pool that can cater for exactly what you wish for.
This private villa is situated close to the beautiful Marine Park where you can swim with tropical fish and admire the magnificent coral reefs. The area is ideal for those who love to dive and snorkel in a superb lagoon with crystal clear waters. Visitors may also enjoy just lying on the beach, and relaxing as they look across this magical lagoon, protected by the reef 25 km long from south-east to east of the island. Many beautiful islands, easily accessible by boat, await your visit.
The villa has a luxurious, tropical garden with local fruit trees which produce mangoes and coconuts, as well as displaying beautiful plants and flowers. It is located in the South East of the Island in quiet and natural surroundings, which is ideal for couples or families of up to six persons. The spacious rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated in order to make you feel at home.
The Villa is located 10 minutes away from the town of Mahébourg where you can discover the Mahébourg Bazaar which is open every day. The Bazaar is far more authentic than the one in Port-Louis and is easily accessible. The Market Fair is held on Mondays, and offers a friendly, lively and cheerful atmosphere where you can buy local products, crafts, clothes and souvenirs!
Blue Bay Marine Park
The Blue Bay Marine Park is a must see situated 100 meters from the villa! There you will find rare corals and fish species in a depth of 5.5 metres. There is more than 50 different species of corals that have been identified, and more than 80% are alive.
Due to constant degradation of this marine environment caused by urbanization, and the tourism industry, this Park is now protected by the government.Take a glass bottom boat from Blue Bay Public Beach, or put on your own mask, palm and discover the wonderful marine life in the crystal clear blue water of the Marine Park.
Traditional Boat trips & Catamaran Cruises
To discover the largest lagoon of the island, you can choose from a wide variety of half-day or full-day boat trips and catamaran cruises to the historical islands of Ile aux Cerfs, Ile aux Aigrettes, Ile aux Deux Cocos, Ile aux Phare, and Ile de la Passe. The latter is a famous historical island going back to the time of the Battle of Vieux Grand Port (1810), when the British fleet was defeated by the French settlers on the island.
Pointe d’Esny, being a sailing paradise, we strongly recommend an unforgettable way to discover the magnificent lagoon on a multi coloured typical Mauritian pirogue. You will discover the pleasures of sailing like never before.
The factory was founded by Jean Fabien Rault who originally produced the famous manioc biscuits, the first commercially manufactured biscuits sold in 1870. Being the sole manioc biscuit factory in Mauritius and on the African continent, Rault has continued to make a name since 1870. Today the 4th generation of the Rault family still run the business. After touring the factory there is a chance to sample the biscuits – together with a nice cup of tea.
The Naval Museum
The Naval Museum of Mahébourg is ten minutes from the villa by bicycle. A show-case of the naval battle of Vieux Grand-Port is a visit not to be missed.
Ferney Nature Reserve
