About Florence du Buisson

We are a Mauritian-French couple (engineer/ communication specialist), with 3 children.

Florence du Buisson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Florence du Buisson chose Trou-aux-Biches

I always truly loved that part of the island. The beach is beautiful and calm with great swimming. Sunsets are unbelievable.

The atmosphere is typically Mauritian and allows you to live independently while enjoying a great service. I could not help but share that little gem with you. A lot of our holiday guests just cannot get enough and come back every year.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartments are located right on the beach, a little haven on the island with the ocean just a few meters away through the garden.

You will enjoy the comfort of those well equipped and sunny apartments as well as the great service. The garden is large and private. You will enjoy beautiful sunsets.

There are many activities and restaurants around.

Ahh once again we had a Truly Magnificent 20 day vacation in Trou aux Biche at the beautiful L'Abri Coutier appartments .what more could one ask for, white sand and gentle lapping waves just steps from your porch , Palm Trees swaying in the gentle breeze. and thats before you start exploring the "Beautiful Island"and all that it offers... Our apartment were beautifully furnished and wonderfully comfortable .We engaged/hired our lovely daily char lady " Marci" to cook for us on occasions, fantastic Creole and Mauritian dishes..." Popo's Supermarket " is literally "over the road" ,.and the smell of his fresh baked croissants , pastries and crispy baguettes' is mouthwatering to say the least.. ! Roll on next year ...Thank you all... and especially the lovely Alexandra, the caretaker who welcomed us, settled us in and made sure we had everything we needed and beyond, during our stay.. 'see you again soon everybody ! ...Sandy and Robin Balch, Zimbabwe

Awesome view

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our 2 week stay. Perfect location. Beautiful beach. beautiful swim. Next to Popo supermarket. negative comments would be that there is no fan in the living area balcony/ and some blinds/sun filter to block the sun. Toilet way too small. A tall person has to leave the door open.

A wonderful view from the balcony

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Trou aux Biches. We stayed with 4 Persons in the first floor for three weeks. We have spend the most time of the balcony, because the view was wonderful! Sometimes we have cooked yourself. The supermarket was directly on the other side of the road, where we were able to buy everything. The restaurant Oaks next to on is also highly recommended and very friendly. By bus you can go to Grand Bay, Port Luis, it is very cheap. Or you order a taxi all day, to look at sights (in the wintertime it costs ca. 2500 - 3000 Rp). We had good weather around 23°, sometimes rain and warm wind. For us it was a perfect weather.

Every day Maseline came, she cleaned the apartment, even cooked for us once or bought fish. She was very nice and we laughed a lot together.

I can only recommend it, we enjoy the time very much and we were very happy not to stay at a hotel resort.
