Welcome to the Summer 2016 issue of Yorkshire Women’s Life Magazine

Travel: We travel to the picturesque tropical island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. The contrast of rich and vibrant colours and past and present cultures form a fascinating and historical tapestry of the island’s heritage. We stayed at the 5* Maritim Resort and Spa, where guests can experience a sophisticated, relaxed beach retreat amidst the charms of the local lifestyle - all with first class service and exquisite cuisine.
