The verdict on most guides on expat life in Mauritius is nearly unanimous. Their common suggestion for expatriates to settle in gravitates towards the north to as far as Grand Gaube.
An idyllic oceanfront living is a common draw for foreigners to reside up north in Mauritius. There are some subtle differences though along the island’s northern coastline. Such variations could dictate home choices based on specific lifestyle preferences.
The beachfront of Grand Gaube, for instance, is a contrast with those of its southern neighbours—Pereybere, Trou aux Biches, Grand Baie, and Mont Choisy. The four beaches of the latter are long and sandy stretches. Grand Gaube, on the other hand, has a limited sand strip on the beaches of its three coves.
A rocky landscape dominates the coastline of Grand Gaube. This setting exudes a rustic appeal that adds to the charm of expat life in Mauritius.
Colourful corals abound too on its near-shore waters, an inviting feature for snorkelers. Also, the Grand Gaube area has a pair of harbours that add plenty of other choices on water-based leisure activities.
Overall, Grand Gaube offers a quieter and serene living environment. It isn’t unusual to find its beachfront deserted, allowing a scenic seascape with a backdrop of rock outcrops and nearby islets.
The ambience in Grand Gaube is indeed quite romantic. Its locale was said to have inspired the 18th-century author Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre to write his famous romance novel Paul et Virginie.
Significantly, the dreamy environment of Grand Gaube has been well preserved. This even as its slice on the northern side of the island also has attracted some property developers.
The real estate developments in Grand Gaube are minimalist projects that meld well with the area’s unspoiled coastal setting. A showcase of this development approach comes in the Ocean Grand Gaube project of 2Futures.
It’s a development under the G+2 scheme for apartment units built at least two levels above ground. These apartments feature full-width balconies oriented to capture shimmering views of the ocean and the natural pond within the property.
The various amenities of Ocean Grand Gaube, in addition, have been designed to sweeten expat life in Mauritius. It has a private clubhouse with a swimming pool, as well as other features enabling an active and healthy lifestyle.
These amazing features are but a fraction on what’s in the portfolio of Ocean Grand Gaube and other projects of 2Futures. Contact a 2Futures consultant for more information about our properties that bring the most out of a sweet expat life in Mauritius
