PLAISANCE ECO CITY
How did the project start?
This project aligns itself to the vision of the government for a greener Mauritius – Maurice île Durable – and at the same time will be an example for countries around the world still struggling with sustainable development. The promoter of the project, Patrick ARNALDI, wanted to contribute to the economic landscape of the country, being already familiar with Mauritius. Indeed, the South-Eastern part of the island was still empty while the northern part was getting always busier with luxurious villas – he decided to make a change. He affirmed that he ‘wanted to leave a trace in this wonderful country by establishing a product designed for Mauritians, that would be affordable and respectful
of the environment’.
What is new?
The South-East part of Mauritius is currently developing because of the increasing number of international Tourists
acquiring houses in other parts of the Island, but also because of the growing amount of foreign businesses
settling in Mauritius. Indeed, Mauritius is a hub for Corporations doing business around Asia and Africa.
Therefore, since December 2016, the Non-Citizen Act reform allows foreigners to acquire an apartment for a minimum investment of 150 000 Euros. Plaisance City is therefore proud of its Eco label, stating for Ecological and Economical, providing an excellent price-quality ratio in an Environmental friendly residence, fully furnished and ready to live in.
Why an Eco-City?
According to Mr. ARNALDI, Plaisance Eco City will be a model in line with international sustainability standards and thus lay the groundwork for a new Mauritius, where ecology has a prominent place. This innovative and attractive model will provide present and future generations an improved quality of life and the vision of a sustainable Mauritius. Indeed, solar panel will be placed on the roof of the entire building in order to provide sustainable energy to residents. Water will be recycled through a special sewage treatment plant, an environmental friendly interior design and Electric cars will be put in place to ensure a high quality living environment.
Promoters promise futuristic buildings which will make optimum use of day-light and the air passing through, for
lighting and air conditioning. These buildings will be largely autonomous in renewable energy. Moreover, with such
competitive prices, you will surely save more than you think while investing in such a valuable property.
‘An apartment today will be worth at least double its current value in 5 years’ states the CEO, and ‘with the increasing
amount of tourist on the Island, it will be easy for residents to rent it while they are not there and make a considerable return on investment’.
Plaisance is an opportunity to offer work to people from surrounding villages. In fact, the creation of about 1000 direct and indirect jobs are anticipated. Projects are beginning to surface in this region of the island, and this will surely help for the further development of the southern region of Mauritius.
Benefits of choosing Plaisance City Apartments?
Plaisance is taking advantage from its developing surroundings, Smart Cities, Forests and Beaches, but also

Not only will residents benefit from the incredible view, one side with sunrise, the other with sunset directly from their apartment, but also a fully equipped residence with Club House, swimming pool oriented towards the sea, a Tennis field, a Fitness room and a French coffee bar.
