02 Jun 2022

Savannah Connected Countryside is a village designed and implemented to foster sustainable urban development in tune with nature.

Savannah Connected Countryside is an ENL Property initiative that hinges on the smart village concept, ticking all the boxes for responsible urban development. This leading property player in Mauritius draws on the expertise and experience gained in implementing Moka Smart City. The company builds high-quality communities in harmony with nature for a pleasant living experience.

The ENL group’s property arm is recognised as a trusted developer. It incorporates into the development of Savannah its own values of aesthetics, community living, respect for the environment and careful planning without sacrificing on heritage. “Our goal is to leverage existing residential developments to create a connected village where residents will enjoy a unique quality of life,” says the Property Development Manager, Vincent Lagesse.

Expanding housing options

The Gros Bois neighbourhood in Savannah is establishing itself as an attractive emerging residential destination in the region with an exceptional quality of life and a warm atmosphere. Current residents can attest to this. “I remember our first visit to Gros Bois. We had arranged to meet near the chimneys. We immediately fell under the spell of the place and were won over by the peaceful surroundings! It was then a vast sugarcane field, but we could easily imagine our life there: we knew it was where we wanted to retire. And it really changed our lives! We started mountain biking (we now ride about 50km a week!). The friendly and respectful Gros Bois community also contributes to our daily happiness,” says Eddy David.

The first phase of Les Vergers de Gros Bois will consist of 6 apartments, 6 duplexes and 6 penthouses ideally located in the heart of the neighbourhood. Common areas will be designed for maximum outdoor enjoyment while preserving the natural heritage of the site. Les Sentiers de Gros Bois also offers 60 generously-sized building lots and office space.
