Cosy staying at black river, great value!
We went to le gite de bonheur for 3 nights as a young couple and loved the atmosphere, the cosiness and tidyness. The hosts are very friendly, caring and give you advice what to visit in Mauritius. This was a perfect place to discover the black river region of the island.
