Historic Site
Get to know the inner workings of a coffee plantation at Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere. Founded in the 17th century, the plantation boasts a long history of producing fine crops in the area. Coffee is not the only product grown here, however. Take a tour and identify trees like cocoa, banana, bread fruit, coconut, cinnamon, and vanilla. Learn about the hard work that goes into growing and harvesting the products, and if you choose a tasting tour, sample the produce of the plantation. Be careful when visiting, as the road is narrow, steep, and quite bumpy. Also be aware that the plantation only offers tours in French.

  • We had a great guide, both for his kindness and his calm for the explanations he has given us. It has not undergone a course of history or science, but we were invited to perceive and feel the nature, what she saw and what she offers. The coffee is much better since...

  • Great visit, Annick was great with a lot of knowledge about the garden. A cultural and place with a great cachet, far from the scene of mass tourism.
