Nous avons, ma famille et moi, été accueillis comme des rois par Philippe et sa collaboratrice Soma de Evaco. Il nous a réservé un transfériste à notre arrivée à l'aéroport, il a réservé également une voiture qui nous attendait à la villa, nous n'avions plus qu'à mettre nos tongs et c'est parti !

Tout correspondait à notre demande et à nos attentes. La villa est magnifique, tout est fait pour qu'on le se sente comme à la maison voire mieux. La piscine sans vis à vis est très appréciable. La sécurité est omniprésente. La gentillesse des Mauriciens est sans faille.

Il est certain que nous y reviendrons entre amis cette fois pour leur faire découvrir ce que veut dire les mots : LES VRAIS VACANCES :-)

Merci encore pour ces magnifiques souvenirs et à très bientôt !!!

Awesome villa and quite affordable too!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit at Villa Athena A1 (we went back in August 2013)...

- We got a complementary lunch/dinner at the nearby Domaines des Allizee which was simple but fantastic (food quality, service and environment).

- Back to the villa...its very quiet and private with its own pool and heated! so we can even go there during winter n still have same fun and at cheaper price since winter is the low season! yayyy!

- We were a group of friends celebrating a we invited a couple of friends for dinner..fully equipped kitchen and a bbq outside..u can make a real feast!!

- We stayed in the pool till late with no1 around to ask us to come out like it is at the hotel!

- In the morning is delivered to the villa so wen u r up the table is set n everyfin ready...even tea! No need to wake up early and get ready to go for as it is the case wen u stayin at the hotel

- The villa is cleaned by the personnel daily so again no stress!

- U also get access to a private beach and beach restaurant which is also very nice though am not quite for "PRIVATE" beaches.

-The only "problem" is that its 5 min drive to the beach and u need to take the private shuttle or have a car to go around ...but not being near the beach doesnt bother me...

so...Go go goooo for it!

- P.S: Its Great for honeymoons as well ;)

en famille sous les tropiques comme à la maison

  • 5 of 5

séjour des plus réussi dans cette villa qui porte à juste titre le numéro 1 ! photos et description précises, ambiance très cosy, dedans-dehors, sans aucun vis à vis et au calme. Contact initial propriétaire super sympa, Sylvie et Philippe résident à l'Ile Maurice, nous ont partagé leurs bonne adresses, bos plans... sur place gestionnaire des services vraiment très pro. La villa Athena est située dans un ensemble très homogène de villas neuves, certaines habitées à l'année, d'autres louées à court terme, le tout sécurisé avec gardiens. Service quotidien de ménage discret et efficace, la femme de chambre s'occupe également du linge personnel, nettoyage et repassage, et nous emmène nos croissants, jus de fruit chaque matin (nous avons opté pour la formule avec petits déjeuners). Localisation sur le chemin vingt pieds, avec accès direct au centre de grand baie, shopping, Super U très pratique pour les courses ouvert le dimanche. Nous avons loué une voiture pour nos déplacements dans l'Ile très facile et pratique pour 25€/jour... Sinon, depuis la villa, une navette privée gratuite plusieurs fois par jour fait un circuit shopping / resto / plages très pratique pour nos ados... Le Club privé La Plage accessible uniquement aux membres nous a également séduit : ancienne maison pierre de lave restaurée, esprit marin chic, service restauration excellent rapport qualité prix, couleurs lagon remarquables. Un bémol, sur les transat qui sont payants finalement offerts quand nous avons 'discuté' et consommé...

Mention spéciale au confort literie -je souffre du dos et là vraiment top- et ensemble déco / prestations / ou rien ne manquait... pas même la connexion wifi indispensable...

En formule 3 chambres avec nos 3 ados, un séjour famille 5 étoiles en liberté à budget raisonnable. Nous recommandons et reviendrons !
