Ropsen started out his business with only 1 apartment on the first floor of his house. The first clients were delighted with the service provided.
He then expanded to 4 apartments as the business started growing. As the surf spots in Le Morne became famous, windsurfers’ and kitesurfers’ demand for accommodation in the south west region of the island increased. New apartments, villas and studios were set up.
Nowadays, Ropsen can accommodate up to 75 persons in the village of La Gaulette and the name Ropsen has become very familiar among tourists.
