Villa Altaïr Roches Noires


Villa Altair, located in Roches Noires on the east coast of Mauritius

Villa Altair is located in Roches Noires, a seaside village in the east of Mauritius, the perfect location for lovers of calm and tranquillity.

This exceptionally comfortable 5-bedroomed villa is right in the water, on one of Roches Noires’ extremely beautiful coves. It is part of a complex of 8 high standards villas located on an exceptional site.

Villa Altair'’s architecture and landscaping seamlessly combine indoor and outdoor living. The villa’s interior design was created by the team responsible for the Royal Palm Hotel, a flagship of the Mauritian hospitality industry.

The east coast is characterised by beautiful white sandy beaches and breath-taking lagoons. The coastline and its many sheltered coves offer beautiful views over the water and boast the largest number of public beaches on the island.

Here, you'’ll enjoy cool summer trade winds, that provide respite from the heat. The scenic and peaceful setting is a reminder of Mark Twain’s idyllic description of Mauritius: "God first made Mauritius and from it, he created Paradise."
