Creve Coeur Village is found here and can be said to be next the the village of Long Mountain. By interpretation, the name ‘Creve Coeur’ (french) means ‘Broken Heart’, but this naming might be erroneous or of a different meaning if you visit the village. Whilst it can be accessed by both the north (Terre Rouge) and the south (St Pierre) roads, the views that this place offers is really breath-taking. Given it can be said to be at the foot of the Port Louis/Moka Range of Mountains, it offers a very green and mountainous scape almost at every location in the village. With the new link roads of Terre-Rouge/Verdun, the view becomes even more beautiful.
The road leading to the village from the north emphasizes on green sugar cane fields in the foreground and a spendide view of the mountain range in the background. And this single road leading to the village provide a feeling of tunneling. As amazing as this looks like in pictures, an on-place visit shows even more greenery and beautiful views of nearby places also.

A recent view of the same route below shows how much the place has been ‘preserved’ from industrialisation and modernisation.
Having mentioned about the Terre-Rouge/Verdun Link Road, these images below previews how the view is astonishing. For info, this road is meant to by-pass the heavy traffic of Port Louis city by taking the other side behind the Port Louis/Moka Range, and of course, quite an uphill road. Preview below:
