Standing at the end of a stone alley lined with small palm trees, a heavy, solid-oak carriage entrance welcomes you.
Inside the building, the atmosphere that emanates from the sleek-but-warm decor is refined, like its hosts, a couple of Belgian expatriates.
A heavy wooden chess set poised for play rests on a table and, in the corner, a library filled with old books is there to be explored. Outside, a white hammock is strung between two palm trees where one might lounge at dusk. The bronze colours of the setting sun are enough to convince you: 20° South is definitely the perfect latitude for a privileged Mauritian getaway.
