Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very well looked after by Doreen and Paris during our stay. The villa is spacious and comfortable with excellent wifi! There is a great restaurant and shop down the road and we treated ourselves to a day package at Club Mrs which was lovely. Would highly recommend.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this villa! It was amazing. Large, comfortable, beautifully decorated. Perfect for our family of six. The housekeeper is friendly and helpful, and comes each day to clean the house. The location is fantastic! It was a great spot from which to explore the sights of Mauritius. The local beach is a few minutes walk and very nice with our four young kids. The local restaurant is great, and even organized a boat tour for our family to swim with the dolphins. The home feels very safe and secure with the gate and alarm system. Paris was an excellent host. Met with us on the first day and showed us how everything works. Communication through out the booking process was outstanding. We would definitely stay here again. This was the best vacation ever!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. We were met at the property and shown everything and how everything works. It is just like in the photos. We had a wonderful stay here with our then 8 month old daughter. The owners were lovely and very helpful and the villa has a lovely housekeeper Doreen who comes everyday except Sundays to make the beds, tidy, sweep, change the sheets when needed, tend to the garden etc. The grounds are well kept they have gardener who comes to look after all the amazing plants. Someone comes to clean the pool, fish out the leaves etc. The villa is not air conditioned but the bedrooms are which is the most important. We stayed in the first villa which has three bedrooms. The main/master bedroom with the en-suite is on the ground floor, with two more bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, just keep that in mind when booking with a family. Our little one slept upstairs, but we brought our video monitor with us so all was ok, and at 8 months she wasn't walking around yet! My husband used the beach, Albion has an OK beach, but the currents can get strong so I think swim with caution. We had a wonderful two week stay, its very secure with electric gates. There aren't any restaurants within walking distance at least we didn't venture out much. You can ask Doreen to cook for you which is extra, she made lovely mauritian food for no more than perhaps £6-£10 a day depending on ingredients. We also went to the local supermarket which is well stocked, or there is a larger supermarket a short drive away. You have use of the wifi which is handy. I would recommend this villa.

A very nice villa, clean and tastefully decorated. Nice garden with pool. It is located in very quiet area with beach, restaurant and a well stocked grocery store in walking distance.

We got a very great welcome when we arrived and had great help from our friendly landlords throughout our stay.

The villa is their finest we rented when we were on vacation and we are already longing back. The housekeeper Dorine was very friendly and helpful but unobtrusive.

At the restaurant La Murene we ate very good food at a good price. There are also Albion Excursions who arranged several very good excursions to us.

A visit to Marie-Christine's restaurant Escale Creole was very nice with good food in a very nice environment.

A perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time at "Villa Pampas". Paris had given us a very good description how to get there so that we didn't have any difficulties to find our holiday home. The house and garden are very lovely, everything in very good order and Dorene, the gardener and the pool boy took good care of it all so that it remained cosy all the time. There is a supermarket just around the corner and the local beach is also close and really nice.

We especially enjoyed our stay at Marie-Christines restaurant and her very friendly advice.

If "Villa Pampas" wasn't that far from Germany, we would certainly return there very soon.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Pampas for about 3 weeks with 4 adults and 2 children.

First of all: we missed nothing in that Villa.

The kitchen is well equipped, bedrooms are big enough for one or two baby cribs (and for sure the adults), there are enough towels and the house maid keeps everything clean. She even cooks if you want for a reasonable price and it tastes superb (creol kitchen).

The architecture is very interesting, it has a lot of open space and probably through the dome-like shape it was not hotter inside than outside. The bedrooms have aircondition though.

Outside, the pool was big enough to relax and play with the children, as well as the garden itself. For handling the mosquitoes at the patio one of those insect candles is essential, the host has some good tips.

When it comes to describing the host family. Let's say: great and lovely! Whenever I needed an advise or had a problem they answered very quickly and had always gave an ear to us. Also before our vacation started the communication was perfect!

Near the villa is a supermarket, which provides most of the necessities. Next to the supermarket is a local restaurant which has great fish, we have been there a lot.

in 2 minute car distance is an atm and several other small shops, but we just frequented the atm.

The beach in Albion not the biggest on, I would call it "medium". But it is located next to a small forrest park which provides good shade for the hot sun. The beach is not crowded at all so you have your privacy there.

Albion has an ideal possition to explore the island by car. You are fast in the South and west and in a good time in the north (depending at what time you drive, because the road to the north leads trough Port Louis).

In summary we had a great vacation at the villa. It is well equipped and provides good privacy in the garden. The pool and garden are excellent to stay serveral days just at the Villa and not leaving it. The housekeeping is lovely and the dishes she cooks are delicious.

I recommend it and would come here ever again!

Car: recommended

Access to Albion and Villa Pampas is very rapid and convenient : 30 minutes from Port-Louis, the capital, 20 minutes from Rose-Hill, the nearest commercial and residential town, 10 minutes from Cascavelle, the nearest commercial centre, 15 minutes from Flic-en-Flac, the nearest developed seaside resort. A map of Mauritius will be included in our welcome kit and we will provide you in advance with a plan and indications as to how to reach Villa Pampas if required.

Albion is located at around 8Km from Flic en Flac, the nearest developed seaside resort where you may find several beaches, restaurants, commercial centers, bars, clubs, casino, etc. The west coast is also very rich in places to go and activities such as golf, fishing, big game fishing, diving, snorkeling, surfing, kite surfing, swim with the dolphins, walk with the lions, day out on catamaran, picnic on nearby islets, quad ride, hiking, visit of natural parcs, typical villages, coloured earth, rhumerie, shopping, etc. We will be very pleased to assist you in your organization of your stay if you have any specific requirements such as airport transfer and car hire, and we will make recommendations in terms of what to visit, tips, etc. We run Escale Creole in Moka, a 'table d'hote' serving typical local food to visitors from all over the world since 15 years.
