What to bring back as a souvenir of Mauritius?

A trip to Mauritius is unforgettable. Nowadays, we are lucky enough to be able to recall good memories thanks to our phone where the photos are stored, but in reality, there is nothing more authentic than bringing back souvenirs from the country we are visiting. When travelling, you can bring back small souvenirs such as decorative objects or gastronomic products that you can't find where you live. Villanovo has created a selection of what you can bring back from your stay in Mauritius so that you will always have a trace of the island, even hours away by plane
 

Rum

Rum

When renting a luxurious seaside villa in Mauritius, take the opportunity to enjoy a glass of traditional rum with a beautiful view of the setting sun. Rum is a must on the island and there are several kinds of rum, so bring some back to enjoy it with your friends or family, maybe a good idea as a souvenir or a gift. Opt for a bottle of Chamarel, a brand of rum that uses only fresh, unburned, hand-cut cane, or for Pink Pigeon, a spicy rum made in the island's oldest distillery. 
 

Vanilla

Who doesn't appreciate the sweet taste of vanilla to spice up a meal or dessert? If you yourself are a vanilla lover, take the opportunity to bring some back from Mauritius, as the island offers a delicious variety of vanilla. If you go to the Vanilla House in Saint-Aubin, Rivière des Anguilles, you will be able to see how vanilla is processed and be able to get some directly to be sure to have a quality product!
