Welcome to Mauritius

« Mauritius was created first, then Paradise; Paradise was copied from Mauritius. » - Mark Twain 

Mauritius, jewel of the Mascarene islands

A veritable jewel in the heart of the Mascarene islands, Mauritius is the dream destination for your holidays in the heart of the Indian Ocean. Situated some 2,000 km from the African coast, it welcomes you with its heavenly beaches, lush countryside and unique cultural heritage. Its small size is perfect for exploring by car before returning to your villa.

With its generous nature, white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and exceptionally mild climate, Mauritius is like paradise. Renowned for its magnificent scenery, this volcanic island offers exceptional walks to waterfalls such as the Chamarel waterfall in the Valley of 7 Colours or the Grand-Rivière Sud-Est waterfall, easily accessible by boat from the Golf d'Anahita.

Mauritius offers a multitude of activities to suit all tastes. Water sports enthusiasts will be delighted with the possibility of scuba diving, kitesurfing, deep-sea fishing and snorkelling. Put on your flippers and mask and set off to discover the seabed, where you'll meet surgeon fish, parrot fish, butterfly fish and clown fish. Dolphin-watching boat trips are also available not far from Île aux Cerfs.

Discover the Black River Gorges National Park. Covered in tropical forests and dotted with waterfalls, it is home to, among other animals, Mauritius's flying fox.

On the island's south coast, Morne Brabant, an imposing basalt mountain listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, also offers a breathtaking view of the ocean and surrounding area and will delight trekking enthusiasts.

Some of the finest 18-hole golf courses are to be found on this island today. These include Anahita Golf Club, with its course designed by Ernie Els, and Île aux Cerfs, designed by Bernhard Langer.

You can discover the fascinating history of Mauritius by visiting the Mauritius Sugar Museum, concluding your visit by tasting the island's best sugar products and a selection of exceptional local rums.

The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden, often referred to as the Pamplemousse Garden, is a must-see in Mauritius. The oldest botanical garden in the southern hemisphere, it was created in the 18th century by Pierre Poivre. It extends over 37 hectares and contains plant species from all over the world, remarkable trees, medicinal plants and animals such as deer and giant tortoises. Guides will accompany you on your tour to help you discover the plants and spices that grow there. This botanical garden is the oldest in the southern hemisphere.
The capital Port-Louis awaits you with its covered market. Here you'll find all the fruit and vegetables for which the island's gastronomic reputation is famous, as well as a vast selection of Mauritian handicrafts on the first floor. Textiles, sculptures and vanilla pods make perfect gifts.

Mauritius is in the southern hemisphere, so the seasons are reversed compared with Europe. From May to September - the austral winter - the climate is hot and dry, with temperatures fluctuating between 20° and 26°. It's also a less busy time of year, perfect for leisurely visits.
The Anahita and Île aux Cerfs golf courses are open all year round. Golf carts ensure you get around smoothly while enjoying the tropical vegetation that changes with the seasons.

Before flying to Mauritius, make sure you have a valid passport and check whether a visa is required depending on your nationality. French nationals do not require a visa for a stay of less than 90 days. Don't forget to take out travel insurance tailored to your needs.

There are several options for getting around the island: car hire, taxi or public transport. The comfortable and safe taxis can accompany you on your day of sightseeing. If you prefer to drive independently, note that driving is on the left and that, outside the capital, the roads are narrower and pedestrians have priority.

Finally, don't forget a hat and sun cream with at least SPF 30!

It would be a shame not to enjoy your stay in paradise because of sunburn.
