We loved the cottage. Very private and quiet. We ordered dinner to be delivered by the hotel and it was wonderful. So were the breakfasts!

Very scenic. All the staff are very friendly and willing to the extra mile to help you. A lot of privacy as you get your own cable. Meal on the porch is wonderful, but need a lot of mosquito coils. There is a tiny pool on the top of the hill. It’s a bit of walk but nice outdoor setting. There are hardly any stores around for you to buy supplies, so shop before going, if you plan to stay longer and cook own meals.

This is such a special place. We stayed for four nights and were so well taken care of, but also felt like we were alone high in the mountains. Great amenities with the perfect touch of rusticness and access to nature. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the Le Perchoir chalet and it was mind-blowing. The chalet was well maintained and had amazing mountain views. The staff was extremely nice and always willing to help. I highly recommend the horse riding tour offered here along with a visit to the pool on the top of the mountain. Please take into consideration that you will need to have a car to get here and make prior arrangements for food.

Unique cottage in beautiful location
We loved our brief say at La Vieille! It is a very large property with several hiking options, a horse barn, and beautiful views around BRG. There is a small shared office that provides "essentials" for purchase (think snacks, water, alcohol, soap). The staff is super friendly/helpful/accommodating even adjusting their hours for our late flights. Meals can be ordered 24 hours in advance. Keep in mind this is high off the coast towards BRG (very close to Chamarel) and it can take 20 min to drive up the main road. There are no open restaurants/shops in the evening so if you plan to spend a lot of time away from the property it is probably not the right location but we would recommend the stay and spending time on the property!

Exciting horse ride through the farmland!
Thank you to Frederick for being a super guide when my daughter and I had a wonderful 2 hour horse ride through the beautiful old plantation farmland, very exciting canter, nice and long and even came across baboons in trees near us (safe distance from us and horses thankfully!). Thank you to the lovely friendly Clotille for your patience when we couldn't find La Vieille Cheminee as we had arrived on the one big festival day of the year when the streets were packed! Super views, great experience, do wear mosquito repellant if you are prone to being bitten like we are.

Quiet and Peaceful Retreat.
Our stay at La Vielle Cheminee was the highlight of our trip to Mauritius this summer. We loved it from the moment we started along the palm-lined drive of the plantation! The welcome was professional, but warm, with time for a drink before we were shown to our cabin. Although the cabin had a rustic quality about it, we were blown away by the setting and attention to detail. In the "Perchoir" we felt as though we were in a tree house, looking out onto views of the plantaion, with the Rhumerie of Charamel in the distance. We had ordered a meal for the first night and it was waiting for us in the fridge, ready to be heated up whenever we wished. Both breakfast and dinner represented great value for money. The peace and quiet made this a wonderful place to relax - we also enjoyed walking up to the pool area for a change of scene.
