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.

About TRISHA VALAYDON
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.
TRISHA VALAYDON purchased this apartment in 2011
Why TRISHA VALAYDON chose Mauritius West Coast and Center
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.
What makes this apartment unique
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
Guestbook comments from the owner
Liked: Very new property - beautifully decorated and lovely styling throughout. Free Wifi - great views over Le Morne. Daily maid service was faultless. Few minutes from Le Morne and the 5 star hotels that are 10 times the nightly price of this place. Great base for kitesurfing.
