Located on a beach of Poste Lafayette, on the East coast of Mauritius, villa Les Dunes 1 is a typical seaside holiday villa of Mauritius, known as “Campements,” made of old stone walls and a thatch roof. Built in the late fifties it has been fully renovated in 2013, adopting a contemporary interior and modern equipment without losing any of its authentic charm.
The house counts 3 air-conditioned double bedrooms; the one on first floor has its en-suite bathroom. In-between the roof and the wooden flooring, a great view on the ocean in a unique cocoon atmosphere. The other 2 bedrooms downstairs have twin beds and share a bathroom. In the mezzanine, the TV room.
Les Dunes 1 is almost semi-detached to villa Les Dunes 2, a luxury villa with swimming pool. They are positioned in such a way that the guests of one another are not disturbed. A small garden gate can however link the two villas allowing the accommodation of up to 12 guests.
A fully-equipped American kitchen, a deck around the swimming pool sheltered by endemic shrubs contribute in the palpable charm of this villa.
The environment in Poste Lafayette is still wild and natural where the wave-break and the breeze in the “filaos” brushwood are the lullaby. It is a most relaxing and invigorating place where one is happy to land for holidays to recover from a hectic period at work.
If you have young kids, the pool is equipped with a pool safety net, available upon request and to be installed by Jim the housekeeper.<

A heartfelt ``thank you`` to Guyanne, who cooks well and to Jim, who is always helpful and prepares the garden early in the morning. For people who need action rather not suitable.

I would recommend a car if you are looking to get out and about around the island. Within walking is La Maison d'Ete which has a really good restaurant, as well as the Centara spa.
Overall a great pick in terms of a villa on Mauritius.
