Flic-en-flacq apartment description
Overlooking the lagoon of Isle aux Benetiers surrounded by the hills of Le Morne, you will be sharing the same stretch of stunning beach as the gorgeous 6 star St Regis hotel and Luxe Le Morne....at a fraction of the cost! Just a ten minute drive from the protected beaches of World Heritage Le Morne these contemporary studios [45M2] were completed in August 2011. Echo friendly, decorated using minimal concepts and neutral tones, Beautique studios has the feel of a quality 4 star hotel. Pale concrete floors, with some of the bespoke furniture and doors lovingly made by the owner.A stunning shared roof terrace with giant sunbeds & a cool off shower, Large dining table BBQ Great for sunsets and stargazers the outdoor areas of this stylish property were created with the romantic at heart...snuggle on the sunbed under the stars at night ....giant fruit bats fly overhead. These 2 spacious stylish studios on the upper floor of a villa, each have a private dining terrace with sea and mountain views Private en suite shower room with toilet and bidet .Guest toiletries Cotton towels Super king sized orthopaedic bed 100% cotton sheets changed 2 x per week Private kitchen in each studio with hob, fridge freezer. Microwave. Daily maid [not Sunday] Free WiFi, CD player with iPod dock and charger. Safe deposit . Air conditioner.
If you don't feel like cooking the best restaurant in the area is a 1 minute walk from Beautique studios
Located 1k to supermarket and bakery. 2k to the ATM : There are several inexpensive and good places to eat within easy reach..... Locally grown fruit and freshly caught fish,venison, tender dark green watercress and the small crisp lettuce are some favourites. Mauritian cooking, diverse as the many races that have ended up here, is a combination of Creole, Indian, Chinese,French and more recently has become even more international with ex-pats from places such as Italy and South Africa. A favourite French destination, there are some good bakeries in the area, and a large local super-market
just a few more miles north of Beautique studio is 'London Way' which has a great deli counter.
For the energetic and adventurous : This area is the destination for Kite and wind surfing, possible to take lessons for any activity if you are not already an expert, Diving courses are locally available.Golf here is world class with spectacular views, whilst tennis, horse riding and deep sea fishing are close by. Beautique studio overlooks the beautiful island of Isle aux Benetiers. This beauty spot is great for a picnic and snorkel expedition, arrange a trip with the local fishermen that congregate in La Gaulette in the morning. Swim with a pod of wild bottle nosed and spinner dolphins ,be sure and book with a responsible operator who will respect the animals and the environment !
A wonderful area for cycling, many are seen training on the local roads for Tour de France. Buses are not very reliable to get around, but are an authentic Mauritian experience,and the mainstay of many Mauritians
Hiking through one of the nature reserves with an expert guide to point out rare flora and animals can be easily arranged.
Authentic Mauritius, Natural Mauritus: Both studios are decorated the same and have the same facilities.
These uncluttered studios have been created to take advantage of spectacular views and the warm breezes that blow off the Indian Ocean. Ideally located to have a different experience daily if an active holiday is preferred. Romantic and intimate these studios are suitably situated for those who wish to have an authentic Mauritian experience. Found in the undeveloped hamlet of Cotteau Raffin near La Gaulette and Le Morne, visitors will quickly feel like a local.
Everyone knows everyone so the area is quite safe [ but please still act responsibly with your valuables !]
The property is fairly peaceful and quiet as it is built facing away from the road, though on the weekend you may hear some music wafting up from the odd fisherman's beach front bungalow or the sound of a dog barking.

"Welcome to Paradise.."
"Welcome to Paradise.."
A beautiful and well-maintained apartment (love the views, golden flowers, rooftop daybeds) with a great crew of people. Special thanks to manager Victor, housecleaner Amla and tourguide Ken for being the warm welcome and my guides. A car is a must on the island. It’s an easy way to get around and see the island/beauty it has to offer. Mauritians drive on the left and it takes a few moments to get used to their driving style (overtake and honk a lot and you’re fine:). The car gave me the chance to go see places as: - Le Morne: just around the corner, with world famous kite surfing and diving spots, and luscious white sandy beaches and blue ocean (spot is world heritage listed) perfect for snorkelling, sunbathing and water sports; - Chamarel, Black River Gorges Natural Park, Grand Bassin, waterfalls: visit Chamarel rum distillery for a tour/rum tastings, visit Grand Bassin to learn about (Hindu) religions/Gods, climb the stairs to the Monkey God (‘Hanuman’, God for strength/courage) for spectacular views; - Grand Gaube: stay at resort ‘Veranda Paul et Virginie’ for a few days to experience the romantic resort lifestyle and for scuba diving go visit (next doors) resort La Marina and its diving centre ‘Emperator’ (ask for owner Ludovic!) which will take you to the best spots in the North. You can book these dives at the front desk of Paul et Virginie or by going to La Marina where you find the Emperator diving centre at the water front; - Grand Baie: touristy area of the North, good for shopping, with many restaurants and bars; - Flic en Flac/Tamarin: great for scuba diving, the ‘Cathedrale’ is an absolute must for Advanced divers, so is ‘Passe Jean Jacques’ in Le Morne, and ‘Coin de Mire’ (wreck dive) in Grand Gaube; - Port Louis: busy capital, go visit the markets; - The South: take the coastal road from La Gaulette to Mahebourg. You will find yourself driving around in Paradise.. Being a female traveller/diver by myself, I absolutely loved Mauritius, the people, the culture, the beaches, ocean and diving, the food, the rum!, and will definitely come back to the island and stay at this apartment again! Due to a great hosts, owner (friendly, easy and quick to communicate with), apartment and the amazing crew of people. Dare speak a few words of French and the rest in English and it's even easier to get around. A big thanks to all of you, tu es magnifique Ile Maurice! Warm regards, Jacqueline Bom

Un accueil excellent, des hotes professionnels et efficaces et une mention speciale pour le petit bouquet de fleurs tropicales discretement changé tous les jours par la femme de menage. Que demandez de plus?! Bientot 4 studios disponibles, au pied du Morne, pres des belles plages du Sud de l'Ile ou l'on peut kiter toute la journée!!!, et au depart des randonnées du PN. Nous esperons qu'il y en aura un de libre quand nous nous deciderons à retourner nous ressourcer au soleil ! Merci!

Cotteau Raffin - Le Morne
We really enjoyed the stay at Beautique Studios and in the southwest of Mauritius! Nature is beautiful with the mountains (most beautiful part of the island, I think) and the beaches on the peninsula are not so crowded and just wonderful! The apartment was great, just as described,well-maintained and the housekeeper and the housemaid did an excellent job. Everything you need he would organise in a few minutes. But since the whole area is not that touristical yet, you´re also a bit depended on him, because there are not so many offers. This is not bad, because he is nice and does a good job, but without him it´s a bit tough to get around and organize things on your own down there. But thats why Victor is there for you! What you really might consider and plan into your budget is renting a car or scooter to have your freedom to do and go where you want. Even for the supermarket to do your groceries (in the heat it can be an exhausting walk). Then bargain a bit with the prices, I think we paid too much for a scooter (800Rs a day - in the north it was much cheaper, but there is also more competition and offers). Taking busses also works, is much cheaper, but costs you more time and patience and for the beaches on the peninsula it doesn´t work. We really enjoyed the apartment and the roof terrace, also the advices on the homepage were helpful, for the restaurants for example. Note that most of them are only open for lunch! The most authentic, nicest and cheapest is definitely Liverpool Snack in La Gaulette. If you want to have peace, freedom and individuality this place is perfect! It doesn´t really offer all the tourist attractions like the north and doesn´t have a lot of restaurants, nothing really to do at night, but we didn´t miss it and felt really comfortable down there. We would definitely return to that place and the village and recommend to stay there! It really makes you come down and feel satisfied. The contact with the owner was also always very nice, comforting and helpful. We would like to thank them again!!!

Beautiful calm near sights in the South
Beautiful calm near sights in the South
In the Beautique Studios everything was really super, this accomodation was a good choice!! It was calm and clean with modern atmosphere. We could see from the balcony into the lives of the local people, they played Pétang ... :) It was very close the sights, for example La Morne, Chamarel, Vanille Crocodile Park, Black River Nationale Park, Casela lion walk ... We spent half our holiday there (6 days), the other half (6 days) in Grand Bay in the North, because we did not want to spend much time on the car, but we want to see complete Mauritius. :) So we liked the southern part of island much better, the nature, the sights, the peace... we saw wild monkeys, fruit bats, parrots, pink pigeons in the nature (no in cage!) ..., but the truth is, however, the beaches are more beautiful in the North (but in the North nothing else is, unless crowd and a lot of dirt). Therefore: I think the best if you have two accomodations, one from South (to explore the beautiful nature), and one from North (bathing on the beautiful beaches). And in the South the best choice is La Galette, and the Beautique Studios!! If I would choose again, I would choose it again! :) It was super!! We were very satisfied with everything. The roof terrace is supersonic!!!!! :) Thank you! Hi, Zalan & Erika Bugyi from Hungary

Owner response: Wow, what a generous review....thank you very much. at our local beach the water quality and visibility for snorkelling IS perfection at Le Morne, the coral reef still healthy & close to shore....for us Le Morne beach has star quality and the cast away effect ,this stretch of beach is largely undeveloped apart from the stunning St. Regis and Luxe Le Morne hotels.

About the owner: We built this place. We have always dreamed of creating a beautiful place we would enjoy staying in ourselves...Ravin is a native born Mauritian and myself (Trisha) am English. We frequently travel, we love hotels and wanted to create a hotel feel. We are are a romantic couple and wanted to create potential for romance in the outside and inside spaces. We poured our love for this beautiful environment into every nook and cranny and want to express love through this building to our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Flic-en-flacq:
Adventurers, beach bums, bird watchers and lovers alike will get so much out of this lush green pocket of Mauritius. A quiet area that has not yet been overwhelmed by tourism although there is amenity close by,for a wonderful holiday, your neighbours will be mostly Mauritian. Sunset and rainbow watch while you barbecue a catch of the day, sun worshippers can cool off under the roof shower . At night star gazers can snuggle on the giant sunbed on the roof of Beautique studios. You will share the same stretch of pristine sand as the luxury hotels in Le Morne at a fraction of the price, whilst enjoying more privacy, more space (the rooms are a generous size) and have a much more authentic experience.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The area of Petite Morne feels like Mauritius would have been 30 years ago, it doesn't take long to feel like a local.... a real gem of a location. All of the nature highlights are nearby
