Le Campement is one of the 5 cottages on our 200-acre farm, right in the heart of the village of Chamarel, in the south western mountains.
Part of the farm is under cultivation (Pineapples, citrus, palms, avocadoes, vegetables) the rest consists of natural forests and green spaces, ideal for horse rides and trekking. It is suited to couples, nature lovers, solo adventurers, and families (with kids) who wish to discover the interior of Mauritius and interact with the inhabitants of the village.

The space
As we only have 5 cottages on the farm, each with its own spacious garden, there is a feeling of privacy, quietness and complete isolation.
The cottage is unsophisticated, but offers all the basic facilities to make your stay comfortable. A fireplace under the veranda creates a very intimate atmosphere in the evenings.
The 2 bedrooms with double beds have ensuite bathrooms, while the 3rd bedroom with single beds has its bathroom across the corridor. All 3 bedrooms are airconditioned and have ceiling fans.
There is a small indoor lounge and dining area, but the veranda is the main living space with a spacious sitting area and dining table.
There is a driveway leading up to the cottage, with parking for 2 cars.

Our 5 horses are an integral part of the farm life, and will often be seen wandering freely on the premises. They are calm, friendly, and will adapt to beginners as well as experienced riders.

Trail walkers will find several trekking paths on the farm, from 2 to 6 km, with various levels of difficulty. They can also access the nearby Black River Gorges nature park, renowned for its spectacular trails.

Golf enthusiasts can discover four spectacular 18-Hole golf courses, (Paradis, Bel Ombre, Tamarina, Avalon) within 30 minutes drive.

The famous Le Morne surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing spots are easily accessible within 20 minutes driving time.

As you will be surrounded by nature and greenery, you may experience mosquitoes and other small insects, especially at sunset. (Mosquito repellents are provided in the cottage, and are on sale in our grocery store. All the beds are equipped with Mosquito nets.)

Location

Mauritius

For many years, Chamarel was a very isolated and forgotten village up in the south western mountains, the only activity of note being touristic excursions to the famous Coloured Earths.
The village has since developed many touristic and agricultural activities, while retaining its original and genuine atmosphere.
There are many small restaurants around the village, but open only for lunch. The village does tend to be very quiet at night.
The main activities:
- The Coloured Earths
- Curious Corner
- The Rhum factory and restaurant
- Ebony Forest
- Le Chamarel restaurant (good food and spectacular views)
- Le Barbizon restaurant (Rico, the owner, is a flamboyant and interesting host)
