At Vanilla House the air is filled with the relaxing smell of the trees which sets the pace for the type of atmosphere our clients can enjoy as well as the different outdoor activities which are at their disposal. The Guest house is the fruit of the collaboration between Didier de Senneville and Nathalie Staub, two Mauritians from French descent. Their ancestors emigrated from France in the 18th century. Having fallen in love with Mauritius, their families settled to never leave the Mauritian shores again. Didier and Nathalie as well as their staff know all the secret wonders the Island has to offer, and are most enthusiastic to share them with you.
