The Villa boasts a breath-taking view of the Indian Ocean, a lush landscaped garden and an infinity pool, from which you can admire the most incredible sunsets and the whales and their calves frolicking along the coastline between June and October. Get a taste of life in the tropics, where life indoors and outdoors blend into one. Ideally located in the heart of a seaside resort, Villa Astrea is 300m from the sea and just 8 minutes’ walk from one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Trou d'Eau. With the sunshine, white sand, lagoon and coral reefs, this family villa really is a very privileged place to stay.
Ideally located in the heart of the west coast
Villa Astrea is located in a very quiet residential area. Less than 1.5km away you will find a number of local services, such as a bakery, wine dealer, restaurants, supermarket, tobacconist's, post office, pharmacy and a medical centre.
On Sunday mornings, why not sample the local flavours at the Ermitage food market, just 7 minutes’ drive away. And thanks to the proximity of the Route des Tamarins (just 10 minutes by car), the main highway running over the west coast, you can easily reach the whole island.
In less than 15 minutes by car, you can visit the Mascarin National Botanical Conservatory, the Stella Matutina Museum and the Kélonia Marine Turtle Observatory. You can also go paragliding, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, dolphin safaris, play golf and eat in very good restaurants, such as the highly reputed Blue Margouillat, the only Relais & Châteaux classified establishment on the island.
