Just off the coast of Mauritius, this villa’s 300 square metres of private property encompass four bedrooms, ‘with its back to the prevailing breezes’. Its refined, contemporary style is in harmony with this unique site, and sits on a sandy bed, surrounded by filao trees, stone, weathered wood, raw concrete, inox, natural fabrics and comfortable furniture. Its private natural bathing pool can be reached by a small stone stairway, and is nestled between L’Ilot and two other nearby islets. A small jetty leads to deeper waters, perfect for swimming and diving, while privacy comes assured – apart from local vendor Ali, who guests can expect to stop by with his ‘marvellous’ live fresh crab, sea breams and local sacréchiens.
