This 6 years old villa is artistically decorated and elegantly furnished with locally handcrafted teak furniture. It is located in a very peaceful and traditionally old residential area of Grand Baie. The village with its supermarkets, shops, bars, cafes, discotheques and beaches are easily reached on foot from Villa La Chaulee.
Maximum occupancy : 6 adults
Extravagantly large Master bedroom with double bed, 2nd/3rd bedroom with twin beds - all bedrooms have air conditioners & ceiling fans. Bathrooms with separate WC, showers with sliding doors, bidet etc . Fully equipped kitchen with gas/electric cooker, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, etc. Very spacious living room with 6 single sofas, TV, video, radio, CD player. The veranda leads to the swimming pool with large dining table and sofas. In the garden, a pavilion with dining table/benches for 10 is set for BBQ. Towels and linen are provided & property is cleaned daily by cleaner except Sundays/public holiday
Villa La Chaulee is quite unique in its kind. It was built with the purpose of receiving our sons who live abroad, our international friends and family, therefore whatever is found in the villa is of quality and of refined taste . Many guests who arrive for the first time in the villa are quite impressed, because we did not remove anything that were personal and dear to us. Everything was left in the Villa as if we were living there ourselves.
The garden around the Pool is really nice and quite a rarity these days. Not many rented villas still have tall old trees that are over 50 years in their courtyard. Most of them have been cut down to make place for the construction of more concrete villas for rental. We are happy to have kept our beautiful old trees because they continue to inspire admiration to those who see them for the first time.
Of course, there are bougainvillas, night jasmin, y-lang y-lang, hibiscus, flaming trees etc. and that the alley way from the entrance gate is bordered with tall Manilla Palm trees where creepers grow. Indeed, all the tropical plants are there also to remind us of the tropical origin of this Island. If you love nature and you are an ecologist and want to save the planet, you will experience what we, on a small scale, are trying to do.
In summer (December, January, February, March) when the temperature can reach 36o C, it is marvellous to be able to jump out of the Pool and have your meals under the shaded roof of our beautiful pavilion. 4 large, thick rustic wooden benches and a mega table can accommodate more than 6 persons. There is always a nice breeze blowing in that direction coming from the East which makes it even more pleasant to enjoy your food.
Barbecue can be organised, everything is provided for.
Many guests coming for longer stay bring their hammocks and hang them on the pillars of the pavilion to sit and read or just watch birds in the trees and admire the sky.
If you are tired sitting around the villa and garden, you can walk to the village (about 15 -20 min.) and go shopping. On the way from the villa on the main road, there are already, hotels, Italian & Mauritian restaurants, delicatessen, a supermarket, beauty salons, massage parlours, art gallery, football ground, sailing club, etc.

About Mrs Mireille Fahrni
Born in Mauritius, studied in London. Lived in Switzerland, Belgium, Africa and the Eastern Bloc. Enjoy living in Grand Baie now with my Swiss husband.
Mrs Mireille Fahrni purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Mrs Mireille Fahrni chose Grand Baie
We bought this property because we used to come very frequently on holiday here and spend time in this house. We loved it and decided to buy it and make it our holiday home. Since we decided to make Grand Baie our home base, we have renovated and enlarged the main house and built a separate 'Guest House' on the same compound. The 'Guest House' is what is being offered for rent. It is equally beautifully built in the typically 'creole style' with lots of wooden beams and ceiling, a scenic veranda that leads straight to the eco-friendly swimming pool, a kiosque for barbecue in the middle of a lush tropical garden with half centenary pine trees and flaming trees. It is really a dream place.
What makes this Villa unique
Because of its location in a highly residential area of Grand Baie, it is very peaceful, quiet, zen, away from the noise of the main coastal road and the village. But it is still very near to bus stops and taxi stands and other public facilities, like restaurants, beaches, banks and super-markets. If you are looking for privacy, security and a perfect place to unwind, this is the place par excellence.

Paradise exists, it is at La Chaulée
Villa La Chaulée is an outstanding and luxurious family home who belongs to the Fahrni. It is exactly as the listing says and it is the finest villa we ever stayed in. The villa is situated in a magnificent location on the island's upscale area of Grand Baie and is nested in a luxurious tropical garden with a great number of plants and trees.
The Fahrni built the place for their children with love and attention to every detail. It encompasses luxury space and confort. There is a very spacious reception room with abundant natural light which opens onto a large patched roof terrasse. The furniture is made for relaxation.
The owners Mireille and Gottfried are perfect hosts and enjoy meeting their tenants if they wish to.
Their house helpers are efficient and well trained to meet the highest standards.
We had the perfect holiday in an exceptional setting. Do not miss staying at La Chaulée.
Catherine and Nabil Malek
Catherine and Nabil were the perfect guests that one always dream of having - a super nice couple, highly appreciative of everything and enjoying all that the villa had to offer as far as comfort, beauty and luxury are concerned. It was indeed a pleasure to share our Mauritian experience with them, our unique way of life that never fails to leave visitors on the island spellbound.
Gottfried and I enjoyed thoroughly our numerous conversations with Catherine and Nabil during their stay here.
Loved having you here! Please come back again any time!
Thank’s to Mireille and Gottfried
We will strongly recommend this property. The house is in perfect order with a beautiful garden with pool. Daily visits from gardener and housemaid made our stay really luxurious. But maybe the best part of our stay was Mireille and Gottfrieds extraordinary hospitality with fresh eggs and fruit from the plantation combined with limitless efforts to order transportation and sightseeing tours. They gladly go that extra mile for their guests.
We recommend this property to anyone seeking a Mauritian holiday to be remembered for life.
The Klem family
Amazing villa, super nice staff, great safe location and lucky to have near perfect weather
My stay was perfect, the staff were very helpful and villa in a great location near the Merville Beach hotel. I would definitely come back. Thank you for everything.
Nous avons passé un séjour de 18 jours vraiment exceptionnel. Nous étions deux couples en famille.
La maison est tout à fait conforme aux photos présentées sur le site.
Grande, bien meublée, confortable, avec une terrasse bien aménagée et dans un jardin très verdoyant. Le tout bien entretenu par un personnel efficace et discret. Elle est située dans un quartier paisible et calme. Seuls les chants des oiseaux nous tenaient compagnie. Et proche du centre de Grand Baie.
Quant aux propriétaires, Mireille et Gottfied, nous avons reçu de leur part un accueil vraiment chaleureux. Dès notre arrivée divers fruits, pains, confiture, etc avaient été préparés avec soin par Mireille . Et tout au long de notre séjour, nous avons apprécié ses qualités d'une hôte toujours disponible, et très compétente pour nous apporter des informations sur les plantes et arbres environnants, et à nous expliquer des recettes à base de végétaux. Mireille est une artiste dans divers domaines et ses explications sur ses différentes créations nous ont enchantés.
Quant à Gottfried, toujours de bonne humeur, lui aussi n'a pas compté son temps pour nous servir de guide lors de la visite de sa plantation et nous faire connaître ainsi de nombreux végétaux et fruits que nous ne connaissions pas.
Nous ne pouvons que les remercier, et le mot est faible, du temps qu'il nous ont accordé et ils nous ont ainsi fait connaître davantage leur belle île.
Nous espérons pouvoir y revenir rapidement et bien sûr nous séjournerons à "La Chaulée" sans hésitation.
A home from home
This gem of a villa is even more lovely and spacious than the photos suggest. We were a party of 5, ages ranging from 10 to 68. We really appreciated the fact that the villa is properly equipped, like a real home, so you can easily cook meals or have a BBQ in the lovely garden. There is also a good sized pool, which my son really enjoyed. The owners live close by and were very hospitable, even giving us eggs and exotic fruit from their plantation. The location is ideal, because you can walk to Grand Baie on foot, yet the setting is tranquil and off the main road, so you can enjoy a relaxing stay. There is also a local supermarket less than 10 minutes away on foot, which was very handy. We all enjoyed our stay at Villa La Chaulee and found it to be the perfect home from home in Mauritius.
Thank you, Karina, for your comments and appreciations. It is so nice of you to have taken time to do that.
Yes, the villa is indeed more spacious and beautiful in reality than what is suggested by the photos. And I'm glad that you enjoyed cooking in our large and well-equipped kitchen and BBQ in the garden.
Our goal is achieved when guests such as you, go away content and happy!
I think, my husband enjoyed speaking in German with all of you
Séjour 2016 à MAURICE
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à La Chaulée. Tout est là pour que nous gardions un beau souvenir de ces vacances : la villa est spacieuse, propre, bien équipée. Nous sommes réveillés par le chant des oiseaux. Le jardin est magnifique, bien arboré et super entretenu. Mireille et Goedfried Fahrni sont très accueillants et mettent tout en oeuvre pour notre confort et notre bien être. Le personnel est très discret et efficace. Un grand MERCI.
Un grand merci, Nadine, pour vos gentils mots.
C'est toujours un plaisir pour nous quand nos clients repartent d'ici satisfaits de leur sejour et decrivent ce qu'ils ont apprecie le plus. Nous avons cette chance que la nature nous est favorable , ce qui rend encore possible de se reveiller le matin avec les chants d'oiseaux et de vivre parmi de grands arbres et cette profusion de plants tropicaux.
Merci pour le miel produit sur votre domaine. Il est excellent!
N'oubliez pas de m'envoyer le lien pour votre gite.
pour tout ce que la villa leur a offert.
Villa La Chaulee is about 10 minutes'walk from the 5 star hotel 'The Royal Palm'. in Grand Baie, the Riviera of Mauritius. This is the most developed coastal area on the Island where hotels, restaurants, boutiques, bars and discotheques are to be found. Here the local affluent society and tourists have the opportunity to meet in bars and discos for entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. The most famous and beautiful public beaches are to be found nearby - local residents and tourists spend time lazying in the sun, swimming, or practicing water sports. Some of our Catholic churches are quite old and have a distinct architecture, either lying on the edge of the sea with astonishing background or placed just in the middle of sugar cane fields. There are reminders of our past as a sugar producing Island . Deep sea fishing boats set sail from the pier in Grand Baie every day taking tourists out for big game fishing. snorkeling on the reefs is a favourite sport Other Activities: Grand Baie Golf: To play Golf from Grand Baie you have to go to the East coast where there are several Golf courses - - Belle Mare Plage Hotel - Resort Golf - Tel.no. 00 230 415 1501 - One & Only Le Saint-Geran- One & Only Golf Academy - Tel. no. 00 230 401 1668 - Ile-aux-Cerfs (One & Only Le Touessrok) - Tel. no. 00 230 402 7720 - Four Seasons Anahita - Tel. no. 00 230 402 3125 Ski: This is a tropical Island, so the only ski we can practice is water-skiing.
