Quads, Kitesurfing and Catamarans – Heritage The Villas’ New Family, Camera, Action Holiday in Mauritius
Heritage The Villas, situated on the south coast of Mauritius, is introducing a new Family, Camera, Action Holiday, with the aim of bringing families together and encouraging them to get out into the wild outdoors.Recent research has shown that more than half of youngsters aged seven to 12 spend less than an hour a day outside and the “cotton wool generation” are experiencing an indoor existence. On holiday at Heritage The Villas, families are encouraged to enjoy a wealth of outdoor activities from quad biking in the estate’s own nature reserve, to kitesurfing at the on-site water sports school, all within a safe environment.
Set within a 2,500 hectare ex-sugar plantation estate, known as the Domaine de Bel Ombre, each two to four bedroom villa has been designed with families in mind. There is plentiful space for the kids to run around, large outdoor verandas, private swimming pool, cots and kids’ beds, plus every mod con a family could wish for.
The Family, Camera, Action Holiday costs from £4,289 per family(four sharing) for seven nights on a B&B basis, and includes:
• Holiday planning service
• Quad bikingor Fauna and Flora Discovery Tour with family photo-shoot
• Family golfing lesson
• Kitesurfing lesson or catamaran boat trip
• Airport transfers
Preparing for the trip has been made easy for parents with the holiday planning service – a checklist sent via email, asking what each family member would like to do on their holiday. The concierge will then tailor-make a suggested itinerary, resulting in a holiday that runs smoothly and pleases all the family.
Families can enjoy the Domaine’s stunning Frederica Nature Reserve with a quad biking adventure or fauna and flora 4×4 discovery adventure,to explore the native fauna and flora, such as wild deer. Additionally, a photographer will capture the families’ time at the reserve, and a DVD memento will be created for them as a souvenir to take home.
The whole family can have some fun with a family golfing lesson on the 18-hole, par 72 championship course of the Heritage Golf Club. There is also a 9-hole pitch and putt par 3 course – ideal for beginners and children.
A kitesurfing lesson at the Kite Globing Kitesurf School is also an option in the package, so parents and kids (age 8+) can enjoy learning a new skill together. Other water sports such as kayaking, windsurfing, paddle boarding and snorkelling are also available at no additional cost.Another option, and possibly one of the highlights of the holiday,is the catamaran boat trip to Benitiers Island, where guests will be able to spot and swim with wild dolphins.
Families can opt to eat out at any one of 12 different restaurants across the Domaine de Bel Ombre, where all tastes are catered for and each restaurant offers a varied children’s menu.
Families can also enjoy traditional fishing in the River Citronniers which runs through the resort, picnics in the gardens of Le Chateau de Bel Ombre -a 19th century colonial style mansion, as well as a variety of active pursuits such as SCUBA diving trips, tennis lessons, sports tournaments and mountain biking.
