About Cyril

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 Triolet

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.

What makes this villa unique

Trou aux Biches beach is known as the most sought-after beach of the island. It is a small quaint village where everyone knows everybody. Operators of most nautical activities offer their service, picking our guests right in front of our property.

Owner's Response: Sylvie and Yvan have been staying on 3 occasions at Cyrano. They are nice people who enjoy the prime position of Cyrano on the beach. When they leave, Cyrano is always as clean as when they checked in. It is always a pleasure to have them at our place.

Safe snorkelling & swimming. Water skying & towed inflatable buoys operate right in front of the villa. Visits to the Aquarium 1.5 Km away in Pointe aux Piments, would gave a good idea of the various tropical fish the live in our waters.

Flying trips on micro-light aircraft are available less than 1Km away, although the operator intends to move to Grand Gaube area (north-east of the island).

Visiting the Botanical Garden in Pamplemousses is a must. Dating from the French Administration, before 1810, it spreads over 60 Acres, and is known to naturalists throughout the world for its wide collection of indigenous & exotic plants, including an interesting Spice Garden, the Giant Water Lilies and the Talipot Palm said to flower every 60 yrs after which they die.
