L'Ilot is a rock platform of 3100 m² situated in the lagoon of Roches Noires, on the North East cost of Mauritius, at approximately 100 m from the coastline.
Access is via a rock and wood bridged causeway. Positioned on a sand bed and surrounded by filaos trees, this vast villa of almost 300 m² faces North-West, with its back to prevailing breezes.
The building and the its interiors are of a refined contemporary style in harmony with the beauty of this unique site: natural building materials, stone, white or weathered wood , raw concrete, inox, natural fabrics, linen, comfortable and adaptable furniture.
L'Ilot offers a unique location, surrounded by the lagoon and facing the islands north of Mauritius, “Ile Ronde” , “Ile aux serpents”.
There is easy access on all sides to the sea. At the front of the house, a small stone stairway takes you down to its own natural bathing pool nested between L'Ilot and two other closeby islets.
Safe and peaceful bathing is assured there. To the East is a little jetty leading to deeper waters for swimming and diving.
The light is magical on this turquoise lagoon and low tides are spectacular - a rare phenomena in Mauritius -, exposing vast sand banks. L'Ilot, although an integral part of Mauritius, offers a retreat if desired. With a 360° panorama the scenery is transformed all the time.
Depending on the wind, the light, the ocean swell, l'Ilot shimmers and changes constantly, upwind or downwind, hot or cooled by sea breezes.
