The professionalism and commitment I have experienced whilst dealing with Villa Vie is something the Villa Vie team should be very proud of. I have received invaluable and most importantly, sound real estate advice and subsequently invested in two properties in Mauritius over the recent three years. Their personal service and dedication to their clients is second to none!
A.Chevreau, Buy/Sell, 2022
Villa Vie is a real estate agency in a class of its own. Both as a seller and a buyer, we appreciated the quality of the listening to our expectations, the reassuring professionalism of our exchanges and the dynamism to achieve our objectives. We did not get any tempting promises but a realistic analysis of both the property to be sold and the market situation. In short, Villa Vie is a serious and trustworthy real estate agency that has given us complete satisfaction.
M. & C. Freshmut, Buy/Sell, 2022
Villa Vie has accompanied us throughout our 10 years of life in Mauritius in our various real estate needs. A big thank you to this great team of dynamic and friendly professionals.

For the sale of our house, we had to deal with an efficient, dynamic but also warm and caring team at Villa Vie. It’s a real ‘plus’ to be surrounded by such a team during moments that are not always easy when you are leaving a place where you have spent many beautiful years. Thank you Villa Vie!

G. & C. Borelli, Long-term rental, 2022
The major characteristic of Mary Ann who has taken care of the sales of my house is professionalism. She has always brought a helping hand and been responsive in a very reliable way. I am more than happy to have made this sales transaction : The product is great. I really recommend Villa Vie. I was almost desperate when I contacted the agency which helped me in finding ‘The house of my dreams’ . I am very grateful and will surely take the opportunity to share this amongst my friends. I hope ‘Villa Vie’ and team will keep up with this amazing customer experience and even move to the next level.
Z. Sunthbocus, Buy/Sell, 2021
A great team, available, efficient and human, which places the individual at the heart of its clients’ projects. An excellent knowledge of the Mauritian market and products.
C.Desvaux, Buy/Sell, 2022
We have been renting our villa at Cap Malheureux for over 7 years through Villa Vie. They are a very friendly and dedicated team who welcome guests on arrival and always offer a little extra attention to the guests. Cristel deals with short term rentals and has a good knowledge of the market and customer requirements. Our tenants have always been satisfied because she knows how to find the right villa for them. As an owner, I feel reassured when I rent through this agency because she has a great sensitivity to hospitality and personal service. I recommend them without hesitation!
J. Jauffret, Holiday Rental, 2022
Happy birthday Villa Vie! And sincere congratulations because it is with a continuous success that for forty years Françoise Maujean first, then her daughter Sophie Hardy and their staff are committed to the rental of our Bengali villas. Trust, loyalty, professionalism and smiles are undoubtedly the basis of this long-term success.
R.Lagesse, Holiday Rental, 2022
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Sophie as a buyer as well as renting from her and her company. The interaction at every level has been exceptional, Sophie took all of our input in terms of what we wanted to buy and never tried pushing us in the wrong direction based on the stock she was holding, which is very rare when it comes to agents. All of her staff have been responsive and friendly in all of our dealings. I can highly recommend reaching out to them whether you are wanting to buy or rent!
A.Kramer Buy/Sell, 2022
A big thank you to Valerie and the whole team at Villa Vie Agency for finding us “the ideal house corresponding to our criteria” and in a very short time, arriving from France to settle in Mauritius near Grand Bay we had a few weeks to find our family cocoon.

Great experience engaging with Villa Vie on the rental of our property in Mont Choisy during the difficult Covid time. Mary Ann and her team persevered until they found the right tenant.

All in all we were really pleased with our dealings with Villa Vie, a very good experience. We highly recommend their services.

Top agency, I finally found the house I was looking for, which corresponds to me perfectly, thank you Mary Ann for your reactivity and your professionalism, your good mood so appreciable. The contact with the agency was done remotely, from France. I like the website very much, and they called me back very quickly after I gave them my contact information, which is not always the case in Mauritius. Here, service and commitment have helped me a lot in my research, in this difficult situation linked to Covid, Thanks again.
C. Remy, Long-term Rental, 2020

M. et S. Aillaud, Holiday Rental, 2020
I like the setting of Villa Vie : family run business with a great team of employees who are equally as engaged and committed as Françoise. They all share the same goal. I am well looked after by the very dynamic team Dominique/Mary-Ann. I like their availability and the follow up that takes place soon after. This is why I rent my duplex via Villa Vie after purchasing it through the company in the first place !
R. Godfrey-Watkins, Long-term Rental, 2020
What I appreciate beyond Villa Vie’s impeccable professional service, is the quality of the relationship that has been built between us and the team of the agency. They are great real estate agents but also friends you know you can count on! My husband and I have not regretted calling on you for a second when we had to look for long-term tenants. Moreover, the tenant was found very quickly and there is since then a great agreement between them, the agency and me ! Sophie of the long term has magnificently succeeded Françoise of the short term. Bravo Villa Vie !
J. De Froberville, Long-term Rental, 2020

C. De Rosnay, Long-term Rental, 2020
One very simple and yet very illustrative word to describe Villa Vie and its team… Awesome!!! My husband and I were looking for a little piece of paradise to purchase… And Mary-Ann did not only find exactly what we were hoping for, but she also supported us every step of the way to make our little and yet very precious dream come true!!! They were genuinely caring, understanding, professional and attentive to our needs and wishes… and made this whole experience an easy and exciting adventure to boot… all of this in the midst of 2020.Thank you Villa Vie!!!

A. & D. Boudry, Buy/Sell, 2019
On behalf of the whole family, I would like to say a big thank you for the warm hospitality that we had during our week stay in Mauritius. Our holiday was absolutely amazing and everyone really enjoyed it. The Bengali villas were perfect for our group especially with the large veranda where we could all sit and relax, and we really felt at home. Didier our chef a domicile , kept us hungry and excited to have his deliciously cooked meals everyday and Gladys, Stephanie were very patient with us. And last but certainly not least thank Cristel, she was really great and spot on with all the details. She is a fantastic asset to Villa Vie. Thank you again, and we will keep in touch as we will definitely be back.
C. Faure, Holiday Rental, 2019
I wish to share my heartfelt appreciation to Cristel, Francoise, Sheena and the entire Villa Vie team for the wonderful hosting that my parents had in June. To say the least, my parents’ experience was a remarkable one in the island, and it was largely driven by their comfort and stay in Pereybere. The accommodation was just perfect! The services were very efficient and timely and the house was everything that they could have wished for. Francoise was such a delight to interact with and she was an incredible host with a loving and huge heart, and I wish to thank her immensely for the care she gave my parents and myself. I’d recommend Villa Vie and the apartment to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful holiday accommodation and rate it 100%. Keep up the good work and God bless each of you immensely. I look forward to being hosted at other Villa Vie beach front apartments/studios in the near future. Once again, many thanks.
E. Maingi, Holiday Rental, 2019
Here we are, back in Paris in the cold and grey. What a contrast! The rain does not have the same flavour or the same smell with you and with us. We spent 10 dreamy days in your little Paradise, surrounded by our children and grandchildren. The place is enchanting, ideally located on the waterfront. Françoise and you were irreproachable and thank you again for the gesture you got from the owner for the last night. This will remain for all of us an enchanted interlude and a pure moment of happiness. Thank you!
R. & C. Handschuh, Holiday Rental, 2019
We had a wonderful experience. The house was perfect for our needs and the beach in particular was spectacular !
A. De la Hoz, Holiday Rental, 2019
A big thank you to Cristel and the other people at the agency who took care of our file and to Véronique for her welcome during our stay last April. Everything was perfect. Villa Nancy is fully wheelchair accessible. See you soon, perhaps. Jocelyne
J.Dupuis, Holiday Rental, 2020
We have just returned from a week’s stay with friends and two teenagers at Villa Maryse. What a joy to discover this magical place, even better than on the photos. Villa Vie is very accommodating, helpful, professional, from the booking and on site with that delicious fish curry on our arrival, and that full fruit basket, as well as those welcome cold drinks in the fridge. All in all a great holiday… Can’t wait for the next one and thanks again Villa Vie.
F. Potaufeux, Holiday Rental, 2019
Integrity, responsiveness and quality properties. The agents are professional and I am happy to work with Villa Vie.
V. Menage, Buy/Sell, 2019
We had a wonderful holiday in a magical place. My special thanks to the Villa Vie team: Cristel, Sheena and Françoise for their kindness and great efficiency. Thanks also to Diana and Stéphanie, the two charming people who look after the house we rented. See you soon!
S. Aillaud, Holiday Rental, 2019
We felt wonderfully at home in Villa Calypso, which was not only due to the fact that the whole team of Villa Vie stood by us with advice and action, but also that the description of the villa corresponded to reality in every point: simply a dream location! Furthermore, Cristel, a member of the charming team of Villa Vie, always provided competent and reliable support with all inquiries and bookings for restaurants, taxis, shopping facilities and even with the organisation of a private birthday evening with the excellent chef cook Didier or a catamaran trip to the islands. Our housemaid Pretty, with her extremely friendly if not sunny nature and her special cooking skills will not let us forget this week in Villa Calypso – we will gladly come back again.
B. Goertz, Holiday Rental, 2019
Congratulations to this fabulous team! Villa Vie is an extraordinary agency, the staff is very competent. They are people who listen to you and are always ready to help you if you have any problems. I highly and unequivocally recommend that people who want to buy or rent should meet them, you will not be disappointed!
V. Lefloch, Long-term Rental, 2018
We fell under the spell of this magnificent waterfront villa. Merville Bay is just beautiful, quiet and relaxing, ideal for a family holiday. Thank you to the whole Villa Vie team for recommending us this wonderful place, we are very grateful to you. You are a close-knit team, always taking care of your clients, thank you for your warm welcome which started on the day of our arrival, and remained so throughout our stay.

F. Catherine, Long-term Rental, 2018
Villa Vie makes life easier for us! You are caring, earnest, dynamic, professional and efficient. You are always committed to matching the customer to the real estate product that suits him best, which, as it happens, turns out to be the best client for the owner. You can also make happy and beautiful landlord-tenant encounters a reality. A small company with a personal touch, providing a personalised service! Congratulations and good luck!
P. Hill, Long-term Rental, 2018
My husband and I have been renting property through Villa Vie for many years. They have delivered an excellent service on every occasion and now consider them as part of “our family in Mauritius”. We are always greeted personally by a Villa Vie employee on arrival and taken on a tour of the premises. Contact numbers are given, and we always felt comfortable to contact them for anything we needed; this included reliable transfers from and to the airport, car hire, boat trips etc. We highly recommend the services of Villa Vie as you will be ensured of a super special holiday every time.
K. Smith, Holiday Rental, 2018
We decided 24 hours before leaving for Mauritius that it would be our holiday destination. Our family is composed of 2 adults and 4 children, one of whom is very young. After interviewing several agencies by email, we received a response from only one agency. 24 hours later we disembarked at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport. And then, the magic of the Villa Vie agency happened! We were welcomed by Françoise, the director herself and her efficient assistant dedicated to short-term rental, Cristel. After a 45-minutes journey, we arrived at the ideal holiday house for our family. We are currently on our fifth stay in one year in the same residence, which for us is the most pleasant on the island. In the meantime, we visited other agencies and villas out of curiosity. Villa Vie’s strength is its reactivity, the empathy of the staff and above all, a perfect knowledge of the properties that are for rent as well as for sale and accessible to foreigners. From the very first stay we were treated as VIP guests, whereas our request could have been ignored, as by the other agencies. Thanks to the whole team!
E. Salden, Holiday Rental, 2018
Villa Vie is the best real estate agency I know; their approach, the values they embrace and their professionalism make the difference!
D. Lamusse, Long-term Rental, 2018
I am very grateful to Villa Vie Real Estate Agency because on two occasions in the space of a couple of weeks, they were attentive to my needs and specifications (geographical location, surface area, environment, rent, etc. ), made proposals that were in line with what I was looking for, and once the « deal » was made, activated the administrative processes so that everything could happen as quickly and as well as possible. Thank you again for your professionalism and friendliness!
A. Pouillès-Duplaix, Long-term Rental, 2018
We have been enjoying the excellent hospitality of the Villa Vie team since 2015 and we keep going back for more! Our family is completely enthralled with the charming 4-bedroom Villa Bengali on Merville Bay. The Villa Vie team could not do more for us, meeting us on arrival, arranging transport, a cooked meal on arrival. Then, there were the 2 charming housekeepers who attended daily, cleaning, doing laundry and never would I thought even cook if required. We have been on many beach holidays in different parts of the world, but the Villa Bengali experience with the Villa Vie team tops them all.
S.Meer, Holiday Rental, 2018
This year, I called on the Villa Vie agency to rent my house. Thanks to the professionalism, expertise and experience of Villa Vie’s agents, the house could be rented swiftly. Thank you to the whole Villa Vie team!
I. Baumann, Long-term Rental, 2018
VILLA VIE understood and met my needs and requirements, as well as my family’s, beyond our expectations. In the midst of a move, one’s ideas are sometimes chaotic and unclear. With patience and diplomacy, the whole team was able to offer me quality properties, and provided me with an excellent market analysis. And to finish, Mary Ann and Dominique explained to me the advantages of each property as well as advised me on the living environment that would best suit my needs. I let myself be guided and I am delighted today that I did so because we are very happy in Mauritius, in the villa proposed by Villa Vie. WHICH WAS BY FAR THE BEST CHOICE! This agency is about real experts who know how to make things easier for you. I WARMLY and highly recommend working with Villa Vie before anybody else in Mauritius.
G. Faidre, Long-term Rental, 2018
An exceptional and personalised service, but most of all, attentive to customers and their projects, providing them with fair and good advice as well as effective follow-ups. Thank you for everything that you have done for us since our arrival in Mauritius.
L. Pinault, Long-term Rental, 2018
I have been using Villa Vie for more than 25 years and have always had great service from Francoise and the ladies working for her all these years and I would highly recommend them.
M. Raffray, Holiday Rental, 2018
We had a fantastic adventure in a beautiful location. Thank you for all your help and advice! The team was fantastic: Cristel, Sheena, Véronique and Françoise! It was nice to have a meal on the first day, the activities were well organized and professional. Keep doing what you are doing!
J. Manish, Holiday Rental, 2018
My vacations to Mauritius are usually of great importance, as I am there to visit with my children and grandchildren. On the occasions that I have booked a villa, it has been because we are attending a wedding or hosting guests from other parts of the world. So, my first inclination is to call Villa Vie for the best recommendations! Francoise researches the villas that best meet my needs and then shows them to me either online or in person. We have always had an excellent experience and plenty of support during the rental process. The staff at Villa Vie are professional, efficient and good communicators. At the villas the cleaning staff keep the homes to international standards and the cooking to local tastes. Who could ask for more?
M. Murphy, Holiday Rental, 2018
We have been back to Bengali four times as we absolutely love this little gem that is on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius and is conveniently close to Grand Baie, where one can do their shopping at Super U and gym at Riverland near La Croisette. Upon arrival, the villa has always been clean and neat and any extra items asked for (baby cot, baby bath) were supplied. Francoise from Villa Vie has always welcomed us with a big friendly smile . The domestic cleaners are polite, kind and are able to make certain dinners on request, which are delicious! The sea view from the villa is magnificent and the sunsets are stunning! We love this villa as our children are happy to explore the tropical garden, swim in the tranquil sea and play on the rocks near the beach. We definitely plan on spending many more holidays at Bengali!
M. Coetzee, Holiday Rental, 2018
These 15 days spent at the villa were extremely pleasant. Everything contributed to the success of our stay: the charm of the house, the kindness of the staff at the house, and the warm and friendly welcome of Françoise and all of her team, always ready to make our stay easier and more comfortable. A real breath of fresh air and pure relaxation to be enjoyed with friends or family without moderation.
S. Cellard, Holiday Rental, 2018
Villa Vie is an opportunity for all those who wish to rent or purchase a property. This « family » company radiates Mauritian values. The team listens, advises its clients and acts in their best interests, which is not so common in the real estate environment. This agency is efficient and different, and I can only recommend its services. The variety of the products that it offers also makes it an essential partner.
C. Fort, Buy/Sell, 2018
This was the first time I have had any contact with Villa Vie Ltd. From the start I was made to feel comfortable, and that I was going to get help finding a tenant. I was treated with courtesy and professionalism.
P. Mohamudally, Long-term Rental, 2018
I am fortunate to be able to say that I have worked with Villa Vie on two occasions recently, I called on them for the rental of two of my residences. To this end, I dealt with Sophie, Mary Ann and Dominique. I understood right from the beginning that I was dealing with experienced professionals. The appointments were punctual, the visits well organized, and my file very well prepared. I felt totally at ease and comfortable straight away. The inventories (ins and outs) were meticulously attended to. The financial side was also very well managed, everything was clear for everyone. What’s more, these three ladies are charming! I feel like I have had a « VIP » treatment! I would like to say a big THANK YOU again to the three of you for your great work, and wish you the very best for the future.
A. Ducray, Long-term Rental, 2018
We stayed at Mirage 2, on the ground floor. Huge apartment (3 double bedrooms with 3 bathrooms), very tastefully furnished and equipped with every possible tool (there is even a coffee pod machine, a double fridge with water and ice dispenser filtered …), all brand new, with a small portion of a lawn in front of it that directly overlooks the sea; the apartment is simply beautiful, elegant and extremely comfortable. Strategic position in my opinion, with a well-stocked supermarket and the village of Pereybere (and therefore restaurants and shops) within walking distance, by day also by the beach. The photos shown are absolutely true. On the roof there is also a small infinity pool. Every morning the staff is present for cleaning and if you want you can ask them to prepare meals. The service is free, just pay (or supply) the ingredients. Trust me, Laura and Marie-Laura speak excellent English and French, they can prepare excellent Mauritian dishes! There is also a nice gas barbecue on which we roasted fish bought at the market of Grand Baie, which can be reached by the convenient buses. The part of the sea in front is also better; the lagoon, equidistant from the busiest public beaches of Pereybere and Bain Boeuf, is practically deserted this season, with beaches whose width varies with the tides. The coral reef spot just in front of the house, reachable in a few strokes, is very interesting, especially for the presence of many species of live and colorful corals, as well as of many tropical fishes. Ultimately, staying only a week, we did not feel the need to do any of the many excursions that local agencies propose. To conclude, which we usually do not do, we are thinking of going back!

If you want to wake up every morning with the most beautiful sound of Indian ocean, to have an amazing view to the ocean from your bedroom, nice beach just few steps from your apartment… To follow sunrise as well as magnificent sunset from your terrace- just go to Mirage! Our 5-member family spent 2 amazing weeks in the Mirage. Spacious apartment for 6 people in a quiet area with enough privacy, well equipped, nicely decorated and wonderful view from master bedroom and dining/living room. Perfect relax on the roof swimming pool. Every day snorkelling before breakfast with nice corals & fish. Caring approach of local Maids Laura & Ruby, who also did our washing and cooked lovely creole meals when we asked for. Bigger supermarket and some restaurants within walking distance(approx.10’), much more in Grand Baie (approx. 5’by car x bus). All that we could have experienced thanks to a very personal care of Villa Vie team, especially Francoise and Cristel who organized all the basics incl. cooked dinner on the first day of our late arrival and took care of us in any case of need the whole time of our stay. We would definitely come back again!

We are a French couple, both 55 years old, who arrived in Mauritius on April 1st, 2018. We were looking for a waterfront villa in the north of Mauritius, and we were applying for a residence permit for retired non-citizens, which we got. We were looking for a long-term lease which would be renewable every year, the budget had been specified as well as the determining criteria. Contact had been established with Mary Ann during the month of March before our arrival, and we were able to visit several properties only 2 days before our arrival. The last visit to a waterfront apartment in Cap Malheureux not only seduced us, but also delighted us as everything was organised and set into motion immediately so that we could take possession of the house a few days later. VILLA VIE, Dominique, Mary Ann and Sophie had set up the lease agreement, which we signed, an inventory was conducted with Villa Vie on the day we moved into the house, and moreover, the provisional budget was respected! My wife joins me in thanking the entire Villa Vie team for their attentiveness, reactivity and understanding, but also their kindness and professionalism! Thank you to the three of you for contributing towards our dream of living in a little corner of paradise, one that overlooks the lagoon and makes us feel appreciative of our good fortune every day!

We had a lovely Christmas holiday in one of the four Mirage apartments in Pereybere which is on the beach and decided to treat ourselves to Villa Shalimar which is close to Grand Baie and all its amenities in Easter 2018. Both holiday homes are outstanding, but Villa Shalimar was in a class of its own. The pool and garden leading onto the beach and the beautiful home with excellent staff was everything we could possibly want to make our holiday special. We hope to return soon.
D. Davies, Holiday Rental, 2018
This villa is a good as the pictures. The accommodation is excellent and has all the little extras that make our stay fantastic. We have been back 3 times! The location is perfect, with good snorkelling right off the beach in front and a really beautiful swimming beach is a few steps to the right. If you like long walks on the beach, you won’t be disappointed. Winners supermarket was just a short walk along the beach and had everything that we needed. Veronique and the ladies at Villa Vie Ltd need a special mention. Their professional and efficient service were outstanding. The whole team have made our visits to Mauritius a pleasure. They answer all our questions and make sure that we were comfortable and settled. They arrange everything from the accommodation booking, the airport transfer, our catamaran day trip to the north islands and even made sure that we had a meal waiting for us when we arrived. The combination of the efficient and friendly team at Villa Vie and the stunning Villa Mirage have made our holidays in Mauritius unforgettable!

We have been returning to this fabulous villa Maryse a number of years consecutively as it is just so ideal for our family with two young children. The staff have been super attentive and this all add to a very relaxing holiday. The house is right on a quiet and beautiful beach with safe swimming for the kids and the most beautiful views. Villa Vie are very accommodating and helpful in every way, from booking through to ensuring there is always a delicious cooked meal for us on our arrival. Francoise is full of great advice about local things to do, places to shop and to eat and it is a joy to see her smiling face each time we return!
E. Jamieson, Holiday Rental, 2018
I visit Mauritius regularly and really appreciate dealing with Francoise and her team through Villa Vie. They have always provided engaged and efficient service (before and during stays), but more importantly they are warm, friendly, and always try their hardest to find the perfect property for me; be it for a week or a month. The ladies have great restaurant and activity suggestions and simply make me feel at home. I have stayed in 2 apartments at Villa Mirage and two duplexes at Villa Duplex Merville. Both waterfront and whilst very different products, I’ve loved them both as they facilitated relaxing, comfortable stays (even when working) where everything worked and was as described in words and photos. I’d happily stay in both again (and again). Villa Vie’s house staff are also always careful, trustworthy and caring, not to mention great for preparing wonderful, traditional Mauritian feasts. I highly recommend Villa Vie for that personal, caring touch and quality villas.
J. Peters, Holiday Rental, 2018
It was Villa Vie that found a tenant for my house in Pereybere. I appreciated the pleasant and smiling team at Villa Vie and I recommend it to my friends.
V. Levieux, Long-term Rental, 2018
Villa Vie has always responded to our requests with great professionalism. We dealt with a dynamic team, empathetic and attentive to its customers’ needs. Their advice has always been crucial in ensuring that we could satisfy customers and exceed their expectations.
D. St Mart, Long-term Rental, 2018
We have booked villas on the beach between Cap Malheureux and Merville through Villa Vie for over 25 years. We highly recommend the helpfulness and efficiency of their staff. They are welcoming and give an excellent list of local restaurants and useful telephone numbers. All the villas come with a maid who gives personal service to wash and clean, we love the swimming and the independence of being able to cook at home or eat out. We hope to continue to return every year to enjoy the warmth and welcome!

« Ode » to Villa Vie We have been coming to Mauritius for 20 years. From the very first time, we were welcomed as if we were old friends. You provide an « Airport – stay – airport » service, just as we like it. When we arrive at the house, the fridge already contains most of one or two days of goodies to be enjoyed under this beautiful tropical sky: drinks, ice, plenty of fruits and generous snacks. With you, it is not a matter of an agency simply dropping the keys and then disappearing until the end of the holiday. You remain available at all times. Your regular visits are also an opportunity for delighful moments, when everyone gives news of their loved ones, children and grandchildren. Of our family life. As if our little worlds were growing and aging together. For us… The beach, and sweet and carefree idleness awaits. For you… Details to look after and little worries to solve. Your household staff is excellent. All the women who work there are caring, efficient, and often good cooks. We dream of it in Paris… We have travelled around the world extensively. Mauritius and you offer us a set of conditions and situations that we have never found elsewhere. The houses you offer us are ideally located. What could be better than having the beach at the end of the garden? I could very well see your agency change its name to « Agence paradis ! », instead of « Villa Vie ».
J F. Chaigneau, Holiday Rental, 2018
A little hello from a grey Paris, and a big thank you for your professionalism, your availability and your kindness! We’ll be back as soon as we can!
A. Rouillon, Holiday Rental, 2018
My family and I have used Villa Vie for our holidays in Mauritius for 10 years. During this time, we have stayed in several of their beach properties, all of which have been located on excellent beaches. Francoise and Sophie are always available for questions and the help of a maid in each house has allowed us plenty of time to relax. Villa Vie properties offer plenty of comfort and authentic charm, making your Mauritian holiday one to remember. I would choose a Villa Vie home over a hotel every time!
G. Lallia, Holiday Rental, 2018
We booked this place with a few friends for our Christmas holiday. In all honesty, the photos don’t do it justice! We dealt with a very professional team from Villa Vie that helped us book and assisted us throughout our stay in Mauritius. They were present the day we arrived and gave us a few contacts of places to know that were not too far away. They never bothered us but were always a phone call away. The house is set in a stunning location. Between Pereybere and Cap Malheureux, you are located just off the main road. The house is built so that all the noise coming from the street is blocked off. You face the ocean, feet in the sand. The house has a rocky beach which we thought was great as we would not get all the tourist camping in front of the house. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, kitchen too. Sofas are comfortable and we had someone come everyday to clean (which was not necessary but always a plus). We drove around the island quite a bit and never saw a place that was better than ours. Very well located and I cannot say that enough. Will definitely go back in Mauritius again!

Thank you for all your hard work and professionalism with the sale of our house. It was a pleasure dealing with you and out of the numerous other estate agents on the island Villa Vie is completely different!
G. Duchenne, Sales, 2017
I called on Villa Vie for my apartment in Poste Lafayette, it is the only agency that has found a client for me; great service, the employees are very nice and also very pleasant to work with. They have provided me with a very professional service. I recommend it!
M. Lagesse, Long-term Rental, 2017
We have worked several times with Villa Vie over the past years regarding the rental of our villa in Melville, we have had a good service and we are satisfied with their follow-up. We can recommend Villa Vie as a serious agency!
E. Lamusse, Long-term Rental, 2017
Wonderful views, superb beach and lovely lagoon to swim. Great to have Ruby cooking, she looked after us so well. Would highly recommend Villa Vie to manage your booking, especially Francoise, who was so very helpful throughout all of our stay. Many thanks. Will hopefully return to your beautiful island!
A. Goodings, Holiday Rental, 2017
A waterfront villa with breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean… The service provider Villa Vie took such great care of us, always there to fulfil all our wishes. The whole staff is to be congratulated: Delphine, the housekeeper, who prepared Mauritian dishes for us every day, the other housekeeper Marie, Christel of the Villa Vie agency who was always ready to find the best excursion for us, Françoise, Véronique, the night watchman… A top-of-the-range service… CONGRATULATIONS to all and see you next year!
L. Ratiba, Holiday Rental, 2017
We spent several months at Villa Marine (Péreybère). The view is impressive and the spot is excellent for swimming. The cleaning ladies (Vinu, Praveena and Sheela), the Chef (Gino) and the Pastry Chef (Michael) were so kind and made our stays especially pleasant by taking such good care of us, always ready to please us in any way they could. Françoise’s and Cristel’s welcome from Villa Vie was without exception very warm, generous and always attentive.
W. Wiegand, Holiday Rental, 2017
My husband and I would like to thank you for all the help, advice and support you have given us before and during the sale of our house in Calodyne.
S. Pascale, Buy/Sell, 2017
I had the chance to meet Sophie and Villa Vie. After contacting several other agencies, I was desperate to find the right house for us. Indeed, I was presented with houses that did not correspond, or corresponded very little to the criteria I had given, or I was not contacted again when I asked to visit a house. With Sophie, it was quite the opposite: she called me regularly to tell me that she had not forgotten about me and that she was still looking. And one day she called and said: « I think I have your house! ». We made an appointment right away and when we entered the house, we voiced a big « YES » immediately. It was exactly what we were looking for! Sophie then took care of the lease, the inventory and helped us with a lot of things related to our move. A big thank you to Sophie!
L. Girasa, Long-term Rental, 2017
As owners of a house in the north, we contacted Villa Vie two years ago, after receiving several visits from various potential tenants without much success. Ville Vie came to visit our property, and we really liked and appreciated their enthusiasm towards it. They also kindly advised us on some changes we could make to make it more attractive and easier to rent. We liked and appreciated their approach, and we trusted that we would find a tenant. A month later, our house was rented and our tenants are very happy with us. Thanks to Villa Vie!
O. Desjardins, Long-term Rental, 2017 (Property Owner)
Thanks to the whole Villa Vie team! We have found the villa of our dreams, thanks to you! We have been living there for over a year now and we feel great there! And it is only natural that we communicate your details to all our friends when they want to stay in Mauritius, whether for a holiday or on a long term basis! Keep it that way and stay as you are! Thank you all!
P. & V. Duhayer, Long-term Rental, 2017
My wife and I, accompanied by two other family members, spent two months in a beach-side house near Grand Bay which we arranged through Villa Vie. What an enjoyable experience! From the reception by Francoise upon arrival until our departure, we had a fantastic holiday. Our every need was met. The location could not have been better, and the service provided by Villa Vie, as well as the exceptional service of a cook and house maid were truly first class. Francoise was a delight! We will again be using the excellent services of Villa Vie in November.
D. Witham, Holiday Rental, 2017
My husband and I have always been very pleased with the prompt and excellent service we have received from Villa Vie. All three agents have always been successful and honest in their publicity and follow ups on the rental of our property. Do not hesitate to choose Villa Vie!
C. Sauzier, Long-term Rental, 2017 (Property Owner)
I met the Villa Vie team when I was looking for an apartment in the north of Mauritius. After having used the services of the two previous agencies (without success), and feeling a little depressed at that point, I discovered Villa Vie quite by chance, its offices located in this small white house, and I told myself that I was going to give it one last try through that agency. And then I discovered a very professional, compassionate and kind agency that is very attentive to people. I only had a week to find accommodation. I will always remember the moment I entered this agency: there were two people, Dominique and Sophie. They welcomed me very warmly and listened to me. Once the description of the apartment I was looking for was completed, the agency took on my file and told me how difficult it was to meet all my criteria. During the visits, I truly had the feeling of being accompanied, of being supported because finding accommodation in a new country (within 7 days maximum) is really not an easy thing. Sophie was top-notch, very professional during the visits, mentioning very clearly the positive and negative aspects of each apartment we visited to avoid any further disappointment. To this day, I still live in the same apartment. In addition to its perfect knowledge of its products, the Villa-Vie team is very kind and always offers good advice. I strongly recommend that people who are looking for a home to buy or rent use the services of the Villa-Vie agency.
