We stayed here for a week with our 4 kids in August and love the wilderness and freedom of our week. The kids spent a lot of time with the horses and Freddie at the stables was so good including them in his daily brushing and caring for the animals. We walked a lot, ate lovely local food, rode the...

Campement is a brilliant self-catering cottage. It is well appointed and spacious and a fire can be set in the fireplace for you at night. Remember that you are up in the mountains so water can be slightly less reliable than in Europe! The staff (especially Mirielle, Christelle and Frederick) are very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast and evening meal can...

We stayed here for 2 nights so we could visit the 7 Earths, the waterfall and the Rum Distillery. I think this was my favourite place in Mauritius. BUT... come with a car. We were so pleased we did. Otherwise you will be walking for a long time to get anywhere. There is absolutely no where to eat in Chamarel...

I booked La Vielle Cheminee on line and did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation, location and friendliness of the staff. I would honestly recommend this amazing retreat in Nature to all the people I know visiting Mauritius. My boyfriend and I will definitely be back!

We received a great and warm welcome by the staff. The reception is well situated with a stunning view over the mountain and the surroundings. The room was clean and decorated with taste. We had a room with a chimney where we have the opportunity to make a fire. The pool was well maintained really well situated. Overall, I recommend...

Three nights on this serene place were like the whole holiday itself. Unspoiled and yet welcoming jungle (is that even possible), friendly horses (like well-behaved dogs), smell of the room that reminds you a visit at your grandma's rural cottage (I got somewhat carried away here, sic), and the quiet evening with barbecue... unforgettabe. We plan to return here. Difficult...

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a true break free from stress. You will learn again what it is to be in the nature. Such a change from our hotels where everything breathe luxury. You will enjoy the bird singing in the morning, nice walk and above all unpoluted air. The staff is so discreet yet...

We stayed here for 5 nights while we explored various activities in the region. Our room had a great view and was well set-up for self-catering although the BBQ was a bit temperamental and needed care to use. It was great to sit out outside watching the various birds and wildlife, listening to the different sounds at different times of...

Our experience of a back to the roots concept was beyond expectation. The view at was so relaxing, the only sound that could be heard was birds chirping and the wind through branches and leaves. As a morning alarm we were granted the gunshots of a hunter along with the barking of his hound, which was quite an experience to...
