Mauritius is expensive? Yes and no. Basically, the price level on the paradise island is comparable to Germany.

Hach, it is as if it had just been yesterday that we sat at "our" pier right by the sea and read a book. Here in the Casa Acuario on the Bocas del Toro, the world is still in order ...
This simple bungalow resort in Malaysia on Tioman Island is a little paradise if you can do without comfort for a few days.
Villa Costantina is a beautiful bed and breakfast in the heart of Cannobio on Lake Maggiore in Italy with personal assistance from Federica. We are here almost every year because it is simply the nicest place on Lake Maggiore to stay and explore the area:
The view from the terrace of this cozy apartment of Pietro at Santa Margherita di Pula in the south is just one: pure luxury! Granted, that's why this apartment in Sardinia is a FAVORITE SPOT of mine ...
A real treasure is this nice, small hotel in Villasimius in the southeast of the island. Right in the middle and yet an oasis of peace! The pool area is lovely, the rooms spacious and cute around the pool. My personal Sardinia hotel favorite!
I can only recommend this generous and typical apartment of Enrica in Arbatax. We have felt very comfortable here. The highlight of this Sardinia accommodation: the great terrace with beautiful views of the bay of Porto Frailis in the east of the island.
