Mauritius, A Fascinating Country and a Spectacular Holiday Destination

Although a relatively new country, Mauritius has managed to become one of the wealthiest countries in Africa, a land where people of all sorts of cultures and origins live in peace and harmony, welcoming tourists with open arms. The Republic of Mauritius is situated in the Indian Ocean and comprises the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, Agalega and the Saint Brandon Archipelago.

A few historical facts about the Republic of Mauritius



Mauritius was discovered in 1507 by Portuguese explorers who had no interest in populating it. In 1638, the Dutch arrived here but these two weren't too keen on settling here and they abandoned it in 1710. The French came in Mauritius in 1715, and the island became a French colony under the name of Isle de France.
The British conquered the land in 1810, the country remaining under their control until 1968 when it became an independent Commonwealth realm, under the ruling of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam. In 1992, it became a republic within the Commonwealth.
Although the country was inhabited by many nationalities, the overall vibe that everyone can feel once they've set foot in Mauritius is the French atmosphere. The beautiful French colonial houses and the joie de vivre that dominates the villages and resorts remind everyone of the slow-paced French lifestyle.
The current government however resembles the Westminster parliamentary system and the country is devoted to respecting the democratic principles. Most locals are multilingual and speak English, which is the official language, French, Creole and Asian languages. Mauritius is home to European, African, Indian and Chinese nationalities. The capital of the country is Port Louis, a beautiful and modern city that is an attraction for many tourists.

The attractions that await during a Mauritius holiday



It is obvious that you won't get to visit all the attractions housed by all the islands that are part of the Republic of Mauritius, but you should select at least a few of the most popular and visited ones. Mauritius Island is home to many wonderful nature reserves and places that offer the possibility to discover the local flora and fauna. You should visit the Coloured Earth in Chamarel, the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden in Pamplemousses, the Mauritius Aquarium, Casela Bird Park and the Crocodile Park.
Of course, most of the tourists come here for the spectacular beaches that hide in popular resorts such as Trou aux Biches, Mont Choisy, Pereybere, Grand Baie and Cap Malheureux. If you love hiking and outdoor experiences you should plan a trip to the Black River Gorges National Park that stretches on a surface of 6,794 hectares and is home to a trail that leads to the highest mountain in Mauritius, the Black River Peak. For snorkelling, we recommend the scenic Blue Bay, the only marine park in Mauritius. Those who prefer to practice scuba diving should plan a trip to the area around Flic en Flac, one of the most popular resorts on the island, or Trou aux Biches.
Most tourists prefer to book their accommodation on the island of Mauritius, due to the variety of holiday lodging that awaits here and for the impressive number of promotions and last minute offers. Many choose to rent beach bungalows, luxurious villas, Creole houses, duplex, penthouses, studios and flats in popular resorts such as Grand Baie, Flic en Flac, Pereybere, Trou aux Biches, Trou d'Eau Douce, Mahebourg, Blue Bay or Riviere Noire, but there are also others who prefer tranquil and small villages like Beau-Bassin Rose-Hill, Pointe d'Esny, Tamarin, Poste Lafayette or Bel Ombre.
The other popular island of Mauritius is Rodrigues Island, situated at a distance of 550 km from the island of Mauritius. You can get here from Mauritius by plane, in about two hours, or by boat, in 36 hours. The capital of the island is Port Mathurin, so your sightseeing trip will probably start here. Rodrigues Island, which is also known as the "anti-stress" island is very rich in luxuriant vegetation, nature reserves and unspoiled strips of powder-soft sand. Tourists come here for sunbathing, swimming in its crystalline lagoons, diving, kite surfing and deep sea fishing.
When it comes to accommodation on the Rodrigues island, the most popular villages are Grande Montagne, Grand Baie and Anse aux Anglais. Here you can find plenty of villas and apartments, but also rooms for rent at guest houses and gîte-self catering locations.

Nice apartment, well designed and functional. The kindness and availability of the owners were supportive having some health problems (thanks to the fishes of the corner stone!); We will never thank them enough. the pleasure of the pool, the proximity of Triolet, beaches, from "Popo" (traditional local supermarket where you can find everything) makes a perfect place to visit the North and East of the island. Very good quality-price ratio, it should note the presence of a cleaning lady once a week.

2 bedrooms House for rent from 2 to 5 people in Pointe aux Piments from £58/Night

Family holiday - June / Jul 2017
Automatically translated from: French (View the original version)
A great stay with our teens in a villa cozy colonial type.

The home was more than cordial with the caretaker and his wife: Cocktail and Cupcakes localeux, samoussa, cake chilies.

Boys benefited every day with their mask and snorkel marine funds.

The guardian's brother took us whenever we would ask him to various beaches and organized us a quad output. Really great, no need to rent a car.

The neighborhood is fairly typical of the good memories so that before we left, we were in a hotel 5 * in Blue Bay well boring.

We had a great stay in this beautiful apartment, very clean, modern, well equipped, exactly as we had announced the website IHA.com.

A superb Beach 70 meters from the property, a supermarket at 500 m, restaurants galore on the avenue.

The property is well located in the back of an alley that allows not to hear the traffic vehicles.

We will be back and thanks to Françoise and Eddy, the local representatives who us well learn to enjoy the island.

Thank you also to our COP driver Benoit in Flac.

Cheers for our next on the island!

5 bedrooms Villa for rent from 2 to 10 people in Albion from £53/Night

Family holiday - Jan / Feb 2017
Automatically translated from: French (View the original version)
Hello,

We are a small family of 3 people, a couple and a child of 5 years. We have traveled a good part of the globe and must admit that Mauritius is the destination that we most marked: warm weather without being unpleasant, affordable population if we know how to be a little open ... and other surprises to discover!

We stayed for 3 weeks in a charming house.

As for the house, it is adjacent to that of the owner but you are at home: you have 4 large rooms (3 air-conditioned), a stay to relax or watch TV, a beautiful kitchen and finally a garden Hallucinating; Several places to drink an aperitif or eat (3 separate tables and a bar) and finally the famous pool: perfect for a refreshment.

For convenience this is so almost a no-fault: you can stay up to 10 comfortable in this house of about 200 square meters. (4 couples and 2 children for example).

The house is 2 minutes from an excellent supermarket (Dodo Supermarket) and a 5 minute walk from Albion beach 2 (nicer than downtown).

Finally, and I believe the most important: the human aspect. In this villa you will be in absolute calm given the location but know that if you want to integrate and understand a part of the Mauritian culture, Marie-Michelle will always enjoy sharing a moment with you, Mauritius. She will also bring you local dishes that will have concocted to your attention: her kindness is limitless. And she cooks divinely well. To sum it up, you will have as much trouble leaving Mauritius as Marie, the owner this charming house.

A busy traveler.

Spacious and very well equipped apartment. Great location: close to the beach and all shops but slightly off the main road so as not to be bothered by the noise. Great kindness and availability of the owner Mrs Rabanel who answers your questions immediately and the lady responsible for welcoming us. No complaints !

Family holiday - August 2016

Very large house of more than 300m2, ideally located on a beach very little frequented and no rocks in the water.
The beach is at the end of the garden and in addition to the private pool, there is the pool of the Residence (9 houses) which is rather large. The house is not terraced. The Residence is secured in addition.
We had a great holiday. The pictures are identical to reality.
The housekeeper is very nice and Ludovic the manager of the house is very friendly and available.
