“Mrs”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a really lovely week at Sous Le Vent and were so happy with our choice. Stephanie greeted us warmly at the villa and throughout the week was always available if we required advice on tours or shopping or general information. She even sourced birthday cakes for us.
The villa itself is in perfect location right on the beach meaning we woke to the sound of waves each morning and had the pleasure of swims whenever the mood took us. It is secluded so only the odd neighboring house seem to use it and we preferred it to the public beaches close by. The house itself is spacious and spotless with everything supplied including BBQ, games and fully equipped kitchen. The pictures on the website did not do it justice.
The cooking by Jean was better than the restaurants nearby (and we frequented a few). His lemon meringue on arrival is memorable. He had taken me to the supermarket the first day so it meant we had a full supply of groceries and wine/beer etc for week and we were able to plan a rough meal plan for the week together. Natasha did laundry and kept the house immaculate.
Overall not having to do household chores or cooking was a real bonus.
Stephanie had arranged a transfer for us from airport and we then hired a car when we settled in which was nice not to have to drives straight after a long flight.
Loved Sous Le Vent and would be very happy to return and would certainly recommend it without reservation.

“Idyllic Family Holiday on the Beach”
Reviewed 31 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We spent two weeks with extended family at the Villa sous le Vent in Sept/Oct 2012. The location of this villa is ideal for beach holidays. Our grandchildren were on the beach every day from 6.00am, enjoying the warm shallow water, fine white sand and rock pools. For most of the day they were the sole users of the beach. The house itself is very well set up and tastefully furnished. Jean, the cook, looked after us exceptionally well and cooked some memorable meals. We can recommend the local boulangerie where we bought fresh baguettes and delicious pains aux chocolats most days. For food shopping there is a supermarket of monstrous proportions just 15 minutes drive away in Grand Baie. We greatly appreciated the owner, Stephanie's warm welcome and all the efforts she made to make our holiday at Villa sous le Vent such a success.

“Amazing Villa with Amazing Views”
Reviewed 15 May 2012 for a stay in March 2012
1
person found this review helpful

Myself and 4 guests stayed at Villa Sous Le Vent in the first week of May 2012. The villa is very big and has plenty of space. The Villa comes with a chef called Jean. He is a great cook and also very helpful. He speaks English and also has great knowledge of the island.

The thing that makes the Villa is the amazing terrace. Every night we watched the great sunsets while enjoying a drink. There is also a small beach in front of the villa which is very quiet. You can access the beach easily from the Villa. I would also recommend Mauritius Direct who we booked the Villa through. They were very easy to deal with.

There is also a local taxi driver called Pravin who will give you a great deal. The Villa has internet and telephone which was very handy for local calls. If you hire a car there is a secure garage next to the Villa.
