The Villas Valriche Estate development is part of the Domaine de Bel Ombre, a former 18th-century sugar plantation, complete with its own beautifully restored château, now a restaurant.
Stargazer is built in contemporary plantation-house style, with open timber ceilings in several of the rooms. The villa fronts a beautiful infinity pool surrounded by sun loungers, with a shingle-roof gazebo with more seating to the right - perfect for breakfast or early evening drinks while watching the sun set. On the terraces you'll find relaxed seating, a dining area, and a bar with high stools. The garden has an open aspect, with sweeping views over the estate to the ocean.
The open-plan interior of this home in Bel Ombre is divided into a dining area, kitchen and a sitting room. Décor is neutral, with accent colours in tropical shades of citrus green and orchid. Artwork and decorative accessories are carefully chosen to reflect the environment.
Bedrooms - three on the ground floor and the master bedroom on the first floor - are light and airy, with direct access to the terrace or gardens.
A tennis club, beach club and a championship golf course are just some of the sports facilities available on the estate. The private beach gives access to numerous water sports, including kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing and sailing. The Valriche Nature Reserve, home to deer, wild boar, monkeys and rare birds not to mention spectacular scenery, is within easy walking distance.
Lapped by the Indian Ocean, Mauritius offers more than 160km of talcum white, sandy beaches, shaded by casuarina trees. It's further blessed with a landscape of wooded mountain peaks, sugar cane plains and extinct volcanoes, while its cuisine, a mouthwatering blend of Indian, French, Chinese and Creole influences, is among the finest in the region.
