I booked La Vielle Cheminee on line and did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the accommodation, location and friendliness of the staff. I would honestly recommend this amazing retreat in Nature to all the people I know visiting Mauritius. My boyfriend and I will definitely be back!

We received a great and warm welcome by the staff. The reception is well situated with a stunning view over the mountain and the surroundings. The room was clean and decorated with taste. We had a room with a chimney where we have the opportunity to make a fire. The pool was well maintained really well situated. Overall, I recommend... More

Three nights on this serene place were like the whole holiday itself. Unspoiled and yet welcoming jungle (is that even possible), friendly horses (like well-behaved dogs), smell of the room that reminds you a visit at your grandma's rural cottage (I got somewhat carried away here, sic), and the quiet evening with barbecue... unforgettabe. We plan to return here. Difficult... More

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a true break free from stress. You will learn again what it is to be in the nature. Such a change from our hotels where everything breathe luxury. You will enjoy the bird singing in the morning, nice walk and above all unpoluted air. The staff is so discreet yet... More

We stayed here for 5 nights while we explored various activities in the region. Our room had a great view and was well set-up for self-catering although the BBQ was a bit temperamental and needed care to use. It was great to sit out outside watching the various birds and wildlife, listening to the different sounds at different times of... More

Our experience of a back to the roots concept was beyond expectation. The view at was so relaxing, the only sound that could be heard was birds chirping and the wind through branches and leaves. As a morning alarm we were granted the gunshots of a hunter along with the barking of his hound, which was quite an experience to... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in June 2014, away from the crowds but within easy reach of the activities I had planned for the southwest (handy for the Black River National Park and the Morne). Lonely Planet refers in passing to a 'rustic lodge' - I thought the room was well-appointed and equipped for self-catering. With all the shutters... More

We stayed only one night in an amazing setting. We arrived and were gently received. Due to bad weather conditions we arrived pretty late but that did not pose any problem for the lady receiving us. She brought us to this amazing little house with a nice veranda and fire place with plenty of wood. We pre-ordered a meal which... More

Really nice place to cut off from the common hotel or holiday type. Staffs are so welcoming and make u feel at home right from the time you step in the reception. The chalets are well equipped and one can only fall in love with it. Horses are there for rides or you can spend time on the top of... More
