Mauritius, land of multiculturalism and beside all, a heavenly island…
From lifestyle to economic dynamism, several reasons are there to persuade you to settle in Mauritius.
The most evident: CLIMATE.
Soft temperature throughout the year, guaranteed sunshine, average temperature around 25˚C without excessive temperature. The humidity is quite high but is not unbearable. However, it is best to avoid settling in the capital of Port Louis, the heat and humidity being overwhelming 8 months of the year. Also to avoid, the South and the East during the 4 months of Winter because the wind is omnipresent. The center of the island, where the main population is concentrated, is also not optimal unless you like rain and cold in winter, especially in the town of Curepipe.
The ideal for a steady and warm climate all year round is undoubtedly Albion which is located in the West of the island. For instance, you will find sumptuous villas offered by Les Domes d’Albion. The latter will greet you with a sublime landscape as soon as you wake up while in the afternoon, prepare yourself to be hypnotise by the wonderful sunset.
Albion guarantees a paradisiac way of life: barbecue all year round, swimming pool at pleasant temperature, sea bathing whatever the season, outdoor sports activities, a wellness centre to keep yourself fit. Indeed life is sweet in Mauritius and it only awaits you.
Mauritius may be more than 11 hours flight from France while life on the island remains very close to the French model, the paradise side in addition. For shopping, for example, you will find the same brands in Europe, whether for fashion (Celio, Mango, …) or shopping (Super U, Monoprix, …) with products and brands identical to the international ones at affordable rates. On the other side, you will not lose with the different innovations of Mauritius to promote the local diversity.
The whole island hosts several ultra-modern cinemas opened offering films which are released simultaneously in France and the United States whenever available. In terms of sport, activities are not lacking, it is normally quite the opposite. It is easy to enroll in a football team or in a gym, the options being quite numerous. To live in Mauritius will not be an upheaval to your habits. For the most curious and eager for discoveries, this small island does not lack either. The sea will encourage you to discover water sports, from kite surfing to paddle, two activities particularly popular in the north of the island. Multiculturalism at its peak with influences coming from India, Africa and Asia, Mauritius promises you beautiful discoveries, whether musical, artistic or simply human. The Mauritians are particularly welcoming and helpful. One thing which you should certainly not miss if you are adventurous are the different annual trails – Ferney Trail, La Tropica’Dingue, Moka Trail, Dodo Trail, etc…
The Mauritian people will not pose any barriers to your integration. Their kindness will help you to integrate without difficulty. The people here are rather optimistic and contrary to the ideas received on the inhabitants of distant islands, the Mauritians are very dynamic people.
The value work and respect are very developed on the island. This assiduity at work has enabled Mauritius to become a modern country, with rapid development, an island that has nothing to envy to the great nations. The local population is indeed from different parts of the world. There are the Creoles, more from the African continent, the Indians, who are the majority on the island, the Asians, and finally the French, representing 2% of the Mauritian population. This strong cultural mix with different religions makes Mauritius a community country, with main characteristic: respect between communities.
ECONOMY AND TAXATION
One of the reasons for the current strong demand to settle on Mauritian soil is certainly economy and taxation. Mauritius has been an historically stable country since its independence in 1968. Political regimes follow one another in democratic and transparent ways. The government has put in place effective laws to attract many investors from around the world, including particularly effective double taxation agreements with dozens of Western countries including France.
These laws and the arrival of foreign companies investing in Mauritian soil contribute to the economic prosperity of the country and its strong development over the last fifteen years. This attractiveness is reflected in a particularly incentive tax regime. The taxes are uniform and amount to 15% of the income, without other taxes imposed. A light taxation, far from the burden of western countries.
