Self-catering 3-bedroom bungalow right on the beach in Trou aux Biches
- english, french, English & French
Our dad purchased a plot of land, along the beach in Trou aux Biches, and built a small family bungalow where, when we were kids, my brothers and sisters and myself used to spend all our school holidays. A cyclone in 1960 brought the bungalow down, and our dad rebuilt one in concrete. When he passed away in the eighties, we were 2 brothers and 4 sisters, all adults, and we build 6 units (one for each of us), and since then, each of us has been upgrading his specific unit. The property today includes a large house having 4 separate apartments (2 x ground-floor & 2 x first-floor apartments and a separate building comprising 2 identical 3-bedroom duplexes. Cyrano is one of them. I am a chemical engineer specialised in sugar manufacture. I studied in Australia, and worked a few years in Chad in charge of a sugar cane factory. I also introduced video games in Mauritius in 1980. My wife passed away in 2009, and now I live with a partner in Trou aux Biches, about 150m from our family property. I welcome personally all guests who book Cyrano for holidays.
Cyril purchased this Villa in 1950
Why Cyril chose Trou-aux-Biches
Cyrano is located in the family garden, right on the beach. I have always been around enjoying our small paradise since I was a kid spending our holidays with my siblings since 1950. I have tried to keep that friendly atmosphere, and every year, I have the pleasure to meet several repeaters who come back to our place every year or every 2 years. They are now my friends... not just repeaters. My pleasure is to greet new people as well to my holiday house enlarging my group of friends.

Wonderful location, quiet and neighbors were very helpful. Layout of lounge, kitchen, patio on ground floor is ideal. Beds are comfortable, and the AC was perfect, though only really need at night. The maid, Veena, was a delight, and can also prepare local meals for you. Having a good grocery store next door is hugely helpful! The beach has a lot of coral on it, but it's also quiet with some of the best snorkeling Mauritius.
