Holiday rentals in Mauritius offer great independence to guests. No obligations to eat at set times; no need to dress-up smartly for dining, spared is the hassle of driving to a restaurant for every single meal. Renting a villa from us means preserving those advantages while lessen or avoid the hassles feeding the family.
All our rentals come with an in-house cook. In most cases, the cooking is performed by the maid who has fair to good cooking skills and training, especially for local specialties.
In nearly all villas, the cooking service is included in the rental rates. It can be limited to a single meal a day or comprise the preparation of two meals a day. In the first case second meals are available subject to a supplement varying between 3,50 € per extra hour to 13.00 € per meal prepared.
In both cases, the food is to be supplied by guests and we provide a shopping service (subject to fee) to those who wish to avoid markets and supermarkets but the drafting of shopping lists and the setting of menus remain guests’ tasks.
A chef cook at home
Those looking for a more personalised yet hassle-free service can opt for our chef@home service. Implies the presence of a chef 12 hours a day who will take care of all your shopping, including soft drinks, the preparation and cooking of meals cocktails and canapés. Depending on the rental chosen and upon the amount of guests, it may be necessary to have a second cook, who will also act as butler. This service is not available in all rentals and rates differ upon exact requirements.

Catering and delivery services are available in most regions except the south coast. If the village of Trou-d’Eau-Douce has a few options of take-away restaurants for local cuisine, street-food and pizzas, the region of Roches Noires & Poste Lafayette count three delivery options, of which one is a caterer. The choice of cuisine and dishes is very wide, from local savoury snacks, pizzas, sandwiches, maki sushis, to fine French cuisine.
In all cases of deliveries are proposed only if orders are at least for 4 persons – it can be a different choice for each, and it is advisable to book 24 hrs in advance (especially from the caterer).
Vegetarians and to some extent vegans will find more choices from the menus of the local and fusion restaurants and especially within the ready-to-cook deliveries.
With an accent on Indian / Asian cuisines, the choice is fairly wide. Delivered to wherever you are, a box with prepared but uncooked ingredients, each carefully packed, with the recipe. Preparation is eased and cooking times vary between 5 and 60 minutes. The uncooked food can be kept refrigerated for up to 3 days. This option is by far the most economical, with an average of Rs. 500 (10 €) / dish for 4 persons. Visit Saveur-en-boîte for more details.
