Corinne and Marc O. are living on the beautiful island of Mauritius. It is situated at approximately 2000 km to the south eastern coast of Africa and lies east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. From Europe it takes nonstop up to twelve hours by air.
They are a creol-german couple. Fluent in german, english and french. Marc O. was a successful Graphic-Designer. He loved to travel around the world and his wish was coming true when he opened this Bed & Breakfast. Corinne got years of good experiences as a hostess in a Restaurant of a Five-Star-Hotel on Mauritius. Their hobbies are hiking, designing, taking pictures, swimming and to enjoy life.
The Bed & Breakfast "La Reine Créole" (The Creole Queen) opened in June 2006. It is situated in the south west of the island. This area has subtropical forests, rivers, steams and waterfalls and is the last most untouched nature allover. If you seek for silence and romance, this is the right place for you. The property with about 5600 sqft. has a tropical garden and two roof-top verandas. From here you will have a gorgeous view on the sea and the impressive Le Morne Brabant.
The Sea is only 100 m far and the beach - set on the turquoise lagoon of Le Morne peninsula - is just 4 km far from here. You can reach it by Bus or bike in around six minutes. A large golf-course is just around the corner. At La Gaulette (ten minutes by walk) some shops offer fashion from top designers like Ralph Lauren, or you can purchase your souvenirs at local stores. Beside this here are numerous supermarkets, one Cyber-Café with a Café for Ice cream and Cappuccino. Some good Restaurants offer chinese, creol and european meals.
Six hours of sun throughout the year are for sure! So, everyday is a beautiful day. On one of these days relax on the gardenview veranda. Watch the sunset on the sea and enjoy a local beer.
Mostly all sightseeing spots or places of interest on Mauritius are around La Gaulette. This place is indeed the best link for excursions. For a paradise vacation there are some organized tours with a speed-boat for dolphin-watching or a day on a snorkeling-trip with an afternoon-BBQ on the "Ile aux Benitiers", the island offshore La Gaulette.
Corinne and Marc O. welcome all friendly guests, wish a pleasant stay and an unforgetable relaxing vacation on Mauritius.
See you soon Corinne and Marc O.
