Make a holiday rental accommodation or villa in Mauritius your home away from home

The North Coast of Mauritius, the ultimate island paradise, is the most developed for the demands of tourism, with many excellent restaurants, luxury self catering accommodation and a handful of bars and clubs. There is a massive amount to do, and even more to see in Mauritius, so this short article is the briefest guide to Mauritius possible!

Things to do on holiday on the North Coast of Mauritius

Many of the activities available from holiday accommodation in Mauritius are water based. Catamaran trips to the outlying islands are great fun, and can be arranged from Grand Bay. Sailing holidays to Mauritius are unbeatable, with many delightful coves and inlets to be explored from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The scuba diving is also exceptional; again, it is the warm clear waters which make diving holidays to Mauritius such a genuine treat, with so many unbelievable things to see living on the coral reefs. Subscooters or submarine rides can also be hired. On water, windsurfing, water skiing, surfing, kite surfing and swimming make taking a holiday rental in Mauritius an ideal family holiday option. The deep-sea fishing is at its height from October until April, when huge marlin, tuna, barracuda and a range of sharks are regularly caught.

On land, horse riding in the Mont Choisy Park and trekking and mountain biking in La Nicoliere are magnificent ways to relax and see natural interior of the island. Mountain climbing, karting, kayaking and walking are other superb options to explore, and there is even an 18 hole golf course.

Of course, a holiday to Mauritius could be spent entirely on the unrivalled white coral sand beaches, especially the powder beach of Coral Bay and Belle Mare.

Un grand merci à Linlay qui est là au petit soin du début à la fin comme toujours. 1000 mercis à toutes les 2 qui font que ce séjour est différent des autres ! A très vite pour un 3ème séjour à Villa Rosa :) Gros bisous à toutes les 2

The garden is pleasant with the grass established and other plants growing. The villa is secure with a gated entrance and wall around. Garcon is on hand should he be needed and can arrange boat trips or recommend restaurants etc. should they be required otherwise is discreet and you have your privacy in the villa. The garden offers plenty of outdoor space and the pool and BBQ area are separated off by a small fence and gate so should you be travelling with children this would be safe for them. The villa is near town but I would recommend a car. Driving is mostly easy, but busy in the capital and we felt safe when we travelled around the island. Lots of lovely beaches and we had good weather in December.

Always happy, and so very helpful. If we needed anything, it was never a problem. The standard of the property impeccable. It was all that we wished for and much more. It will be difficult to ever find a stay this great elsewhere, Villa Paprika has set a very high standard. Thank you all for making our stay so special.
