All these freehold properties are on the water’s edge and overlook the canals, the quays of the marina or the estuary of the Grande Rivière Noire. All have direct access to the lagoon, thanks to the moorings found adjacent to the residences.

The marina concept brings together tradition and modernity. Its architecture is a harmonious blend of Mauritian inspiration and contemporary design, creating a space which is perfectly integrated into its environment and adapted to luxury coastal living.
