Beautiful villa La Chaulee with private pool & garden in Grand Baie, near beach

Bedrooms 3
Space 3,229 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

One Storey villa 3 Bedrooms/bathroom, living room, kitchen/terrace & pool

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.

About Mrs Mireille Fahrni

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.

Mrs Mireille Fahrni purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mrs Mireille Fahrni chose Grand Baie

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

A slightly salty water swimming pool with beautifully coloured slates lining spreads straight from the veranda area. Living space around the pool is paved with large non-heating tiles.

Séjour exceptionnel.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour de 18 jours vraiment exceptionnel. Nous étions deux couples en famille.

La maison est tout à fait conforme aux photos présentées sur le site.

Grande, bien meublée, confortable, avec une terrasse bien aménagée et dans un jardin très verdoyant. Le tout bien entretenu par un personnel efficace et discret. Elle est située dans un quartier paisible et calme. Seuls les chants des oiseaux nous tenaient compagnie. Et proche du centre de Grand Baie.

Quant aux propriétaires, Mireille et Gottfied, nous avons reçu de leur part un accueil vraiment chaleureux. Dès notre arrivée divers fruits, pains, confiture, etc avaient été préparés avec soin par Mireille . Et tout au long de notre séjour, nous avons apprécié ses qualités d'une hôte toujours disponible, et très compétente pour nous apporter des informations sur les plantes et arbres environnants, et à nous expliquer des recettes à base de végétaux. Mireille est une artiste dans divers domaines et ses explications sur ses différentes créations nous ont enchantés.

Quant à Gottfried, toujours de bonne humeur, lui aussi n'a pas compté son temps pour nous servir de guide lors de la visite de sa plantation et nous faire connaître ainsi de nombreux végétaux et fruits que nous ne connaissions pas.

Nous ne pouvons que les remercier, et le mot est faible, du temps qu'il nous ont accordé et ils nous ont ainsi fait connaître davantage leur belle île.

Nous espérons pouvoir y revenir rapidement et bien sûr nous séjournerons à "La Chaulée" sans hésitation.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

This gem of a villa is even more lovely and spacious than the photos suggest. We were a party of 5, ages ranging from 10 to 68. We really appreciated the fact that the villa is properly equipped, like a real home, so you can easily cook meals or have a BBQ in the lovely garden. There is also a good sized pool, which my son really enjoyed. The owners live close by and were very hospitable, even giving us eggs and exotic fruit from their plantation. The location is ideal, because you can walk to Grand Baie on foot, yet the setting is tranquil and off the main road, so you can enjoy a relaxing stay. There is also a local supermarket less than 10 minutes away on foot, which was very handy. We all enjoyed our stay at Villa La Chaulee and found it to be the perfect home from home in Mauritius.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Karina, for your comments and appreciations. It is so nice of you to have taken time to do that. Yes, the villa is indeed more spacious and beautiful in reality than what is suggested by the photos. And I'm glad that you enjoyed cooking in our large and well-equipped kitchen and BBQ in the garden. Our goal is achieved when guests such as you, go away content and happy! Best wishes Mireille I think, my husband enjoyed speaking in German with all of you

Owner's Response: Un grand merci, Nadine, pour vos gentils mots. C'est toujours un plaisir pour nous quand nos clients repartent d'ici satisfaits de leur sejour et decrivent ce qu'ils ont apprecie le plus. Nous avons cette chance que la nature nous est favorable , ce qui rend encore possible de se reveiller le matin avec les chants d'oiseaux et de vivre parmi de grands arbres et cette profusion de plants tropicaux. Merci pour le miel produit sur votre domaine. Il est excellent! N'oubliez pas de m'envoyer le lien pour votre gite. Mireille pour tout ce que la villa leur a offert.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Accurate listing description as mentioned on the website., no hidden defects, feeling like being home, discreet owners who welcomed us warmly and provided us with tropical fruits and advice against mosquito bites. Villa upkeep is very well done by the two highly respectful residence employees. Lush green environment around the villa is the secrecy of this accommodation. We don't feel like we are in Pereybere. Will definitely and totally recommend this property to any friends or relatives coming to Mauritius. Thanks to its location and the warm welcome and specific attention from owners and residence employees, our stay was more than enjoyable.

It is our way of saying "thank you" for having choosen our villa for your holidays. I know that everybody who stays here appreciates this particular attention. Please come back whenever you want! Kind regards to you and your family Mireille & Gottfried

Great time in Villa La Chaulee!

  • 5 of 5

There was five of us staying in Villa La Chaulee in March, 2016. The house was very nice and big and there were all the facilities you can wish. The pool was big enough to swim and the garden was very beautiful. The location was very good as well, close enough to walk to the stores for shopping, to the restaurants and also to the beaches.

The house and the yard were clean and in good condition. We were very pleased with the owners and also with the maids and the customer service they provided. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and relatives!

In an attempt to improve our amenities and services all the time, we try to achieve our ultimate goal which is to keep all visitors to our "Villa La Chaulée" content and happy, so that they go back home with the feeling of having spent the most enjoyable and memorable time here.

Villa La Chaulee is about 10 minutes'walk from the 5 star hotel 'The Royal Palm'. in Grand Baie, the Riviera of Mauritius. This is the most developed coastal area on the Island where hotels, restaurants, boutiques, bars and discotheques are to be found. Here the local affluent society and tourists have the opportunity to meet in bars and discos for entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. 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
