Villa Neptune: a pleasant and welcoming home away from homeVilla Nepture is located in Pointe aux Canonniers, 1.5 km from the centre of Grand-Bay, Mauritius’ most popular seaside resort. The villa is rustic and simply furnished, and is located on a beautiful beach, where the lagoon is perfect for swimming. It is simple and functional while offering direct access to the beach: the ideal setting for a peaceful, happy holiday.
Villa Neptune offers the promise of relaxation and of idle days spent with family or friends. The white sand beach at the veranda’s edge is the perfect children’s playground. Beyond, the lagoon’s many turquoise and emerald hues shift and change throughout the day, and sailing boats dot the horizon, outlined against the breath-taking silhouette of the Northern islets… Fishermen returning from the open sea drawn their traditional pirogues up on the beach to unload their catch of the day.
With its offer of an unforgettable holiday on a reasonable budget, Villa Neptune will enchant the young and young-at-heart alike.

Villa Neptune, ideal for a peaceful, relaxing holidayNestled though it is in a tropical garden, Villa Neptune's main asset is its beachside location in Pointe au Cannoniers, 1.5 km from Grand-Bay. The beach is the stuff of postcards: white sand fringed by turquoise waters and a constellation of black volcanic rock. From the shore, you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the northern islands offshore: the Coin de Mire, île Plate, île Ronde and the distinctive Pain de Sucre.
You can either admire the magnificent view from the villa’s veranda, or walk a few steps to relax on the small beach adorned with endemic shrubs and a casuarina tree.
Villa Neptune has not been renovated for some time, and cannot therefore be described as a luxury villa. However, it is impossible to deny its rustic charm or its functional qualities. It is ideal for holidaymakers looking for a simple and authentic home away from home at a very reasonable price. Especially for a beachside property !
The thatched-roof villa is located in a quiet and peaceful area, a haven from the bustle of Grand-Bay. The soft murmur of the waves will be the only thing to interrupt the tranquillity of your holiday.
