This location is not a peace & quiet away from it all experience...The pace of life is slow here but this truly Mauritian village is often pretty lively and noisy!! Musicians can be heard getting together in the evening and playing Sega music. Dogs bark (especially at night) cockerels crow, locals greet each other on the street. The baker will toot his horn early morning and evening to get his customers attention ( which saves going to the supermarket!) The local school children are picked up at 7am the day starts earl

About Trish & Kev

We now live in Mauritius. Formerly a personal trainer in London I am also a practitioner of A Course in Miracles ( spiritual psychology ) Kev and I created much of the fixtures and designed our properties and we work together.

We believe that Love is the most important driver of our business, and hope to benefit the local community that is the face of our place and that our guests feel loved by this property and its environment,

Why Trish & Kev chose La Gaulette

We built this place. We have always dreamed of creating a beautiful place we would enjoy staying in ourselves...Kev is a native born Mauritian and myself (Trisha) am English. We frequently travel, we love hotels and wanted to create a hotel feel. We are a romantic couple and wanted to create potential for romance in the outside and inside spaces. We poured our love for this beautiful environment into every nook and cranny and want to express love through this building to our guests.

What makes this apartment unique

Our place is the best possible location for those looking for daytime action. Close to the legendary Le Morne , a mecca for kite surfers and also the best snorkelling on the island. Near endemic forests and wildlife Waterfalls and hiking trails. Kayak across the lagoon to Isle aux Benetiers.

This place is set in the heart of a sleepy authentic Mauritian village, all day long you will hear birds singing and the rustle of coconut trees in the wind then at night the village will spring to life. There are several churches on the street where worshipers sing enthusiastically and the preacher can be heard a mile away .Religion is enormously important to Mauritians and the all of the churches and temples are packed to the rafters. Cockerels crow , dogs bark, musicians get together and jam. Everyone will greet you as you stroll through the neighbourhood. Life here is not silent.
