The Magic Of Mauritius


When buying a holiday home - space, peace and amenities are often on a buyers’ list of requirements. Heritage Villas Valriche in Mauritius ticks all these boxes, as Julia Millen discovers

Firstly, the sense of space comes from the location in the southernmost part of Mauritius, a region that is renowned for its pristine nature reserves, sculpted mountains, sheltered sandy coves, hidden waterfalls, and traditional villages. This is the authentic, less crowded part of Mauritius where those-in-the-know head.

The stunning residences for purchase at Heritage Villas Valriche are part of a luxury residential development on the Heritage Bel Ombre Estate, a 2,500-hectare domain that combines two five-star hotels, a championship golf course, a Beach Club, an elegant 19th century plantation-style mansion named “Le Château”, 12 restaurants, 4 bars, and a wealth of experiences. All these amenities are at the disposal of the owner and their guests, so owners have the best of both worlds – home ownership with the benefits of a luxury hotel and its services.

Surrounding the villas, a multi-award-winning 18-hole championship golf course is set on almost 100 hectares of idyllic scenery. Tucked between rolling hills and the turquoise waters of the lagoon, the course provides an enjoyable yet challenging experience for golfers of all levels. Owners enjoy automatic – under certain conditions - membership upon acquisition of a property, unlimited golf on subscription and complimentary use of practice facilities

Thanks to its IRS* status, Heritage Villas Valriche is one of the very few property developments in Mauritius to offer serviced plots of land for sale to foreigners.

Set on plots of land ranging from 600 m² to over 2,100 m² in size, each villa has an expansive terrace with a sparkling pool overlooking its own private, landscaped tropical garden. Each property features sublime golf or ocean views to the front, and picturesque Valriche hills behind.

For those that want to tailor their dream villas to their individual tastes and lifestyle needs, there are serviced plots of land allowing owners to build with the guidance of Heritage Villas

Valriche’s team of experienced professionals, or by appointing your own contractor. Owners that live overseas can put their villa, if they wish, in the professionally managed rental scheme, that manages all villa bookings. The stringent architectural guidelines of the Homeowner’s Association contribute to ensuring aesthetic control and maintaining the estate’s value.

Available to purchase are off plan villas on private plots, a limited edition of villas for resale and newly built freehold villas in single and double-storey designs with prime golf frontage location, bordering the picturesque 14th and 15th fairways in three to four-bedroom configurations, with living area ranging from 260 to 453 square metres.

Designed exclusively for Heritage Villas Valriche by the renowned South African architect, Greg Scott from Scott+Partners, the Contemporary Villa Collection is a special edition of residences that take their inspiration from the estate’s beautiful setting. Blurring the lines between inside and outside, these villas provide a feeling of light and space with open-plan interiors, ample sliding doors and unhindered views of the great outdoors. Villas start from $900,000 taxes included. Serviced plots of land from $420,000 taxes included. www.villasvalriche.com

*The Government of Mauritius has introduced the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS) in 2002, allowing foreigners to acquire freehold property in Mauritius with a minimum investment amount of USD 420,000. Upon purchase, the new owners may apply for a Mauritian residence permit and benefit from the country’s favourable tax regime. Spouses and dependent children are also eligible for residency.
