About FRANCIS MASSON

I own personally 2 holiday villas in Mauritius and I occupy my time renting them to holidaymakers. I also manage the rental of several villas belonging to our family and to close friends, the payments being made to each individual owner. The villa Piambelle is one of my properties. This occupation keeps me active and allows me to socialize with tenants worldwide. I am the proud father of four daughters and the eldest is the one who is with me on my presentation photo. I am a retired Managing Director. My ancestor on the side of my father landed on the island in 1762 and, on my mother's side, I am the eldest of the descendants of the English officer who conquered the island in 1810 from the French. I look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you in Mauritius. See you soon! Francis Masson.

FRANCIS MASSON purchased this villa in 2009

Why FRANCIS MASSON chose Mauritius

Mark Twain wrote that God first created Mauritius and then Paradise to its image. My villa RIAMBELLE inspires the same feeling!

A hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We are fortunate to come across Villa Riambele when we were searching for vacation in Mauritius. Coming from United States (Chicago), I was initially a bit hesitant, but after speaking to Francis Masson I felt at ease. Mr Masson is very prompt with his email reply. There were times I would hear back from him in matter of minutes and was surprised by his customer service, hospitality and care he provided throughout our stay. He came to greet us when we arrived and to say farewell when we left. He even took our entire family for dinner before our last day.

The villa is absolutely beautiful!! It had everything we needed, Many spacious rooms, beautiful garden, excellent kitchen and restrooms. It is literally few steps away from the beach. The villa is located at the south part of the island so although it is far away from the city, you get peace of mind. The south part of the island is nice and quiet which is something we were looking for! Transportation arrangement were made for pickups and drop offs and drivers were exceptionally nice themselves. I must commend Nazim who arranged this along with Yusuf, Belal and the entire crew of transportation! They were there ontime and waited on us while we would get ready esp with a 16 month old baby. The people Francis employs are exceptional themselves. Naushad Ali who is the house keeper, and he is such a kind person that my few words would do him injustice for his hospitality and care. Every time we needed something Naushad was there. My younger brother's 16 month daughter became sick and Naushad was there taking us to the hospital. Naushad would make sure we were comfortable beyond our expectations. He even came at night when we needed something.

The housekeeper provided meals for us and kept the villa nice and clean.

In essence, we could not have asked for more. It is a very long flight from Chicago (where I flew out from) and Houston (where my family flew out from) to Mauritius. When we finally reached to Mauritius, we were exhausted and jet lagged. Francis made sure we stayed comfortable which is what you need when are on a 30 hour travel time.

I want to say this was perhaps the best villa I have ever stayed and if i ever return to Mauritius, I will be staying at this place!

Owner's Response: We must say in return that we very very fortunate that you selected our villa for your holidays. I have been active on the private villa holiday market for a few years and it is the very first time we received tourists from the USA. There are very few people that travel 2 whole days both ways to satisfy their curiosity of knowing Mauritius. I have been touched that you all came here to experience, as you stated to me, the uniquenees of our multicultural society of all religions living at peace with one another. Mauritius is indeed an exemple to the world to-day and I am very glad to have had here you to share the great hospitality of our people. You have a great family and we earnestly look forward to hosting you again. Warm regards from Villa Riambelle.

"We have as a family traveled a fair amount during the last 10 years and I can confirm that the service we received from Mr Masson and his staff was as good as anything we have experienced around the world. The home that we rented was fantastic and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet holiday."

3 weeks is not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed house in a wonderful beachfront position. Excellent staff. Nothing too much trouble. Great location for many enjoyable trips. In the less developed part of the island giving a good sense of true Mauritius. One of the best Indian cuisine restaurants in short walking distance. Hope to return soon.

Great Location to Relax & Explore

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier herrliche 10 Tage Urlaub verbracht und jeden Tag genossen. Die Villa ist außergewöhnlich, denn sie verbindet Erholung und Genuss miteinander.

Marietta bereitet Frühstück und kocht jeden Tag frisch auf die typisch kreolische Art (nach gemeinsamer Absprache).

Stephanie und Daisy kümmern sich am Morgen ums Haus und die Anlage. Und Nauchad ist der Housekeeper und kümmert sich um die große Anlage ums Haus und Reparaturen im Haus. Besser kann man es auch in einem 5*Sterne-Hotel nicht haben. Hier ist aber alles viel individueller und natürlicher.

Francis Masson hat uns viele kostbare Tips und Hilfen gegeben, so dass wir sehr gut ausgewählt und vorbereitet auf unsere Touren gehen konnten. Darüber hinaus ist der Transferservice zum Flughafen hervorragend organisiert. Auch bei der Autovermietung nutzten wir den Service und so wurde uns das Auto für einen sehr fairen Preis zur Villa gebracht und auch wieder abgeholt.

Die Insel Mauritius bietet viel mehr als nur Tauchen/Schnorcheln und Abhängen in 5*-Sterne-Hotels oder -clubs. Es ist ein Stück Afrika und man kann dies hier in dieser Villa erleben. Denn Riambel ist ein guter Startpunkt, um zu allen wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten und Stränden zu kommen. Von hier aus kannst Du alle Aktivitäten direkt per Telefon oder Internet buchen.

Diese Villa ist wärmstens zu empfehlen und sie ist ihren Preis mehr als wert. Wir hatten eine großartige Zeit in der Villa Riambelle und auf Mauritius und wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.

We spent wonderful 10 days vacation and enjoyed every day. The Villa is exceptional because it combines relaxation and pleasure.

Marietta prepares breakfast and cooked daily in the typical Creole style (by mutual agreement). Stephanie and Daisy take care in the morning around the house and grounds. And Nauchad is the housekeeper and takes care of the large garden and repairing the house. There´s no better way to relax, even not in a 5* Stars Hotel. But here everything is much more individual and more natural.

Francis Masson has given us many precious tips and proposals so that we could go very well chosen and prepared for our tours. [...]

The island of Mauritius offers much more than just diving / snorkeling and hanging out in 5 * star hotel. It is a beautiful piece of Africa and you can feel it here in this villa. Because Riambel is a good starting point to get to all major attractions and beaches. [...]

We can highly and warmest recommended this villa. We will come back!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the villa was a nice change after spending a week in 5 star hotel. The staff of the villa took care of us preparing food, cleaning, washing and keeping the pool and garden in perfect stage. The heated pool was great solution for a poor weather which accompanied us for 2 weeks of our stay. The pool is small and shallow at one end what was good for kids but of you like swimming like me you still can use it - simply ask Francis the owner about my invention.

The garden is large with tall coconut palms. It's surrounded by the fence which can be slide open giving a nice view on the lagoon.

The near beach is public what means well maintained. In this location far from touristic traffic it is quiet and secluded.

You can swim or snorkel at high tide (be aware of the current increasing in strength with the distance from the shore) or waddle at low tide.

There is a beach restaurant nearby which we newer tried being well fed by Margitta. Local shops and supermarket is in 10 - 15 minutes walking distance. To visit touristic attractions you need to order the taxi which will take you where ever you wish and wait for you to return at a good price.

Strongly recommend to all who wish to spend a lazy and quiet family holiday in the part of Mauritius which remains undusturbed by the touristic traffic.

Owner's Response: Hello, It was jolly nice having you at Villa Riambelle. I will definitely tell my future guests of your invention for swimming in the pool. However I will surely keep secret the improvement I suggested to improve that invention. I am still laughing...! Please come back, we will be very glad to host you again. Very warm regards from my native island.
