13 days from £1760pp plus international flights.
This is a holiday for those wanting to escape the crowds and experience true local hospitality in some stunning locations on both Mauritius and the smaller island of Rodrigues.
We have selected the accommodations carefully and staying here, chatting with the owners and staff will greatly enhance your holiday.
First stop is Andrea Lodge in the south of the island, between a river gorge and cliffs overlooking the ocean. You can go on guided walks through the forest and by the river, learning about the fauna and flora of the area. Your next stay, La Maison d'Ete, is a wonderfully relaxing hotel owned by a Swiss and Mauritian couple. Here the emphasis is on beach life and your room has a terrace or balcony overlooking the sea.
On to the tiny island of Rodrigues and Cases a Gardenias, with just 3 guest rooms and welcoming hosts, happy to share their local knowledge with their guests. The guest house has a wonderful setting in the mountains in the middle of the island and is an excellent base from which to explore. The food at Cases a Gardenias is particularly good and the owners produce and sell many products including honey, jam, fruit liqueurs and gingerbread. One thing is clear - you will won't want to leave!
