Chance of destiny led me to this marvelous island for the first time in 2005 while on holiday. Seduced by its mysterious charm, the wild beauty of its beaches and the friendly hospitality of the local population, I decided to settle here.
I have been living in Trou d'eau Douce since 2007, a tiny village overlooking a beautiful bay lying in the turquoise lagoon of the east coast of Mauritius. I have always dreamed of living in a place like this and the dream finally has come true...
After seven years working in the tourism industry, in 2014 I decided to create my own B&B with the aim to better care of my guests and to provide them with a good level of service in a familiar and comfortable environment, experiencing the local culture and the authentic way of living of the Mauritians.
I like meeting people coming from all over the world, sharing with them experiences and stories; I am delighted to share with my guests my knowledge of the island and recommend the activities most suitable to their taste.
I realize I am living in a beautiful place surrounded by a flourishing nature and I do my best to preserve this precious environment through little good habits, such as recycling, composting, organic growing of our fruit trees and using solar panels to generate hot water.
The building which hosts the B&B house was designed by me and built up with the cooperation of the whole family, as well as the little orchard and garden. All the furniture of the house has been made by natural materials and produced by local artisans.
I am fond of animals and in particular I love dogs: four of them live in my garden, they are very friendly and they get crazy for plays, caresses and food!
Trou d'eau Douce is a picturesque village situated on the east coast of Mauritius, with its bay overlooking the crystal waters of the longest lagoon of the island and its stunning white sand beaches.
“La maison dans son ensemble est magnifique, l'appartement que nous avons occupé ne manquait de rien, propre, lumineux et agréable. Sans oublier sa propriétaire Annaliza, toujours disponible, à l'écoute de nos besoins et qui nous a énormément renseigné sur les choses à faire sur l'île. Un seul mot pour la définir : GÉNIALE. Nous ne regrettons absolument pas d'avoir choisi ce lieu pour nos vacances. Nous le recommandons vivement. Un dernier mot... un grand merci Annaliza!
“Beautiful place, lovely people, lovely dogs :-) ... We had a great holiday in La Maison Soleil!
“Un paradiso sulla terra, le foto non riescono a renderne la bellezza. Annalisa e Christian sono fantastici. Un saluto doveroso al mitico Cayman.
“Abbiamo trascorso una vacanza meravigliosa in famiglia ma in pieno clima mauriziano
