Belle Chamarel

Belle Chamarel

By Lisa Vial

The West of Mauritius is a collection of wonders. Renowned for its Black River district, offering magnificent white sandy beaches and sunsets to be admired from the waterfront, the West also welcomes the famous seaside village of Tamarin and its exceptional properties.

Amongst this enchanting region nestles Chamarel, a hilltop village overlooking blue coasts and accessible by unforgettable scenic routes.  

Through winding paths towards this jewel’s heights, gaze at unobstructed views onto the turquoise blue lagoon, bordering the darker depths of the ocean. Framing this “oeuvre d’art”: luxuriant vegetation. Palms, banana trees, sugar canes, and a thousand other plant species blending perfectly together in shades of green.

Slow down as you approach Le Chamarel restaurant, boasting one of the most beautiful views that Mauritius has to offer. While you admire the unique hues of this western lagoon, overlooking Île aux Bénitiers and Le Morne, you will taste a diverse and generous Mauritian cuisine, which will awaken your taste buds with a the choice of a set menu or à la carte.

As you continue your journey to Chamarel, you may have the chance to cross paths with monkeys from the Black River Gorges, drawing you a glimpse of the wilderness you are about to discover. The Black River Gorges National Park gives you access to an imposing tropical forest, home to more than three hundred species of endemic flora and a dozen species of native birds.

To enrich your beautiful day in the surroundings of the region, BARNES Mauritius recommends a visit to the Seven Coloured Earths, a natural and volcanic attraction, mesmerizing to all. For a quick treat along the way, we suggest experiencing the Route du Thé and Chamarel’s rum distillery, where you will discover the history of Mauritius while tasting delicious local products. For those looking for a cultural experience, discover Grand Bassin’s Hindu Temples.

After this day of adventures in the heights of the West, return to a quiet 3-bedroom duplex, for rent in Rivière Noire. The living space of this contemporary property opens onto a magnificent terrace, ideal for enjoying a true luxury marina lifestyle.

If the heights of the region have charmed you, we suggest this prestigious villa for rent with swimming pool, located on La Tourelle Mountain in Tamarin, offering a plunging view onto Tamarin Bay and the Rampart mountain range.
