  • If you are looking for something to do in the area, it’s an interesting visit. But they are no longer producing rum and you cannot even buy the rum from Domaine de Séverin there. The little ride in th...  more »
  • First we ate at the restaurant of the area unfortunately! The home is fine but very little to eat, I ordered a bream to a la plancha with fries... hang you well for Fries is 14 maximum not one more! Sea bream was cooked only on one side and to my friends like nobody liked no taste any flavor, and yet it is not difficult, however prices are very dirty, them! Anyway here's the restoration part. For the rest (shop, train, and visit) is good, we feel the efforts. Special note to VOLTAIRE guide who is really passionate and super interesting saved us the day.

  • Beautiful place. It was one of the location for Death in Paradise and is every bit as good as it looks on TV. The tour is excellent, but only in French, they do provide a booklet in English which you can follow the majority of the spoken tour. The tasting at the end of the tour is great, have to be very careful if you are driving.
  • Very nice authentic place! We had a guide with a lot of Rhum historics and nice tasting. Learned a lot and will drink Rhum agriculture with respect in the future
  • Very nice introduction with the train during the visit of the domain. The rum tasting was great and everyone was expecting this since the beginning of the tour :) The jam tastes so good with a full flavour very aromatic. The visit overall was nice, didn't get bored.
  • The"train" tour was overpriced. It is much better to go walk around following the map and trail markers. Everyone was present and the tastings were good.
  • Rum tasting was great, tour by train was almost worthless.
