Mauritius is an island known to outsiders mostly for the allure of its palm-fringed shores. Yet Mauritian houses have a charm that attracts the admiration of travellers from around the world. This splendid volume reveals the unique architecture of a culture whose traditional designs, colours and decoration reflect an exotic blend of Asian, African and European influences--and where life is savoured in the shade of the verandah.
