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

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 6 nights


Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Mauritius North Coast - Villa La Chaulee, Grand Baie

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 Mauritius North Coast

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.

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.

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!

-Five friends from Finland

Vacances inoubliables !!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passez de très bonnes vacances...au calme... au soleil, sous la pluie, puis à nouveau au soleil. Il a fait entre 28° et 30° pendant 15 jours : le bonheur ! Les photos de la maison sont fidèles à la réalité, et les prestations ont été à la hauteur de nos attentes (clim, propreté, etc). Mireille et Gottfried sont vraiment des hôtes adorables et très accueillants, toujours aux petits soins pour nous. Ils nous ont fait découvrir des fruits et des légumes exotiques que nous ne connaissions pas. Les Mauriciens ont toujours le sourire : comme c'est agréable ! Les bus sont typiques. Si vous prenez les taxis, pensez à marchander.. Beaucoup de choses différentes à visiter : pas de quoi s'ennuyer durant votre séjour.

Aucune hésitation à louer cette demeure créole, vous serez enchantés !!! (seul bémol : les moustiques adorent les peaux blanches ! prévoyez de la lotion anti-moustiques). Excellent séjour à vous !!!.. Merci encore à Mireille et Gottfried

Cela nous a fait grand plasir de vous connaître et de partager un peu cette façon de vivre à la mauricienne et de vous faire goûter les fruits tropicaux fraîchement cueillis. En effet, le temps fut très capricieux lors de votre séjours içi- tantôt ensolleillé et beau et tantôt pluvieux. Mais cela ne vous pas empêcher de visiter les endroits qui vous intéressaient. Merci encore d'avoir choisi notre villa pour vos vacances! Meilleures salutations de Grand Baie Mireille et Gottfried

Un séjour de rêve comme d'habitude.

  • 5 of 5

Comme l'année dernière, j'ai passé trois semaines à "la Chaulée", demeure que j'apprécie particulièrement. J'y ai retrouvé un vaste espace fonctionnel, en parfait état, d'une propreté irréprochable et correspondant toujours à la description qui en est faite. Le jardin particulièrement bien entretenu, agrémenté de la piscine face à la terrasse permettent de passer des heure particulièrement agréables quand on est à la maison. Le stationnement de la voiture de location est parfait et permet de décharger les courses sans problème. Proche de toute commodités, pour ceux qui n'aiment pas rouler à gauche, les transports en commun (bus, taxis) sont très commodes. Le personnel qui vient entretenir les locaux est particulièrement bien choisi: honnête, dévoué et compétent, c'est un plaisir de les voir tous les jours (sauf le dimanche). Enfin je tiens à souligner la qualité et la spontanéité de l'accueil des propriétaires que je qualifierais maintenant d'amis. Ils ne savent quoi faire pour rendre le séjour agréable en maintenant une totale discrétion. Je conseille tout particulièrement cette location aux familles mais aussi à un couple ou une personne seule qui souhaite trouver du confort et de la tranquillité. Ma conclusion: à l'année prochaine pour peut être plus de trois semaines.

Je dois avouer que Gottfried se fait un plaisir d'aller discuter avec vous et je pense que vous aimez ces échanges d'idées. Le personnel aussi maintenant habitué à vos passages réguliers à "La Chaulée", se rejouissent que cette année encore vous reviendrez séjourner parmi nous. Merci pour vos bienveillants commentaires et excellentes appréciations. A bientôt pour votre 3ème séjours içi! Meilleures salutations de Grand Baie Mireille et Gottfried

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
