4 reasons why Floréal is a place to live in Mauritius

4 Reasons why Floréal is a place to live in Mauritius

By Sophie Desvaux de Marigny

Could you imagine an upmarket real-estate hub nestled around the edges of a dormant volcano, away from the warm coastal beaches of Mauritius? The latter does exist and has long been known to be the "bourgeois" region of the Island. Floreal is home to this very volcano, le Trou aux Cerfs, and neighbouring hub, boasting rich culture, history and infrastructures - not to mention a cool climate.

A number of reasons define Floreal as being one of the go-to locations to reside in Mauritius. Here are 4 reasons why you must consider Floreal in your search for a new home:

1. It is central

Floreal is situated in the centre of the island, on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of Curepipe - a dynamic and historical town filled with monuments, markets,  shops and restaurants. You can almost say Floreal is 20 to 30 minutes away from major towns of Mauritius such as Tamarin, Moka, Port Louis and Mahebourg

2. Well-established infrastructures

Convenient, comfortable and stress-free… These are some of the words that come to mind with regards to the practicality of Floreal. Residents here do not need to drive more than 10 minutes to get to schools, clinics or shops. Lycée Labourdonnais is renowned for it’s international acclaimed french education; Clinic Darné offers quality medical aid; and the newly built, high-end shopping mall “So’flo" responds to every buyer’s needs.

3. Cool climate

Floreal is known for its temperate climate; a climate that is very different to the coastal regions of Mauritius. The city’s elevation and dense vegetation influence pleasent temperatures attracting home buyers and tenants alike - you would be surprised by the number of people in Mauritius prefering Floreal's cool weather to the typical coastal heat.

4. Elegance and Prestige

"Chic" is what many people use when describing Floreal. For decades, it has portrayed elegance and prestige in all its facets: grand houses with neatly trimmed hedges, mesmerising views of the coastal mountains and prestigious brands such as Adamas and Swarovski.
