Maison Eureka, Mauritius

(3.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Step into the country's colonial history at Maison Eureka, an authentic 19th-century home now housing a museum. Built in 1830 and serving as residence to several British and French aristocrats throughout the next century, the house features a long veranda in an attractive European style, while its surrounding grounds offer good examples of regional plants, such as palm and mango trees. Converted to a museum in 1986, the estate displays period artifacts, documents, and trinkets in its colonial-style interior. Browse the collection of antique maps, Chinese and Indian treasures, and colonial technology--such as the unusual shower. With our online itinerary creator, Moka attractions like Maison Eureka can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Return to this restaurant typically Mauritian located in a beautiful colonial house owned by a French family was a great happiness. Excellent kitchen!

  • Nice little garden but it feels little life passed in the House. All parts are not open, windows or other closures are not in very good condition. Decent rate: 300 rps but it doesn't have the side passion as Labourdonnais or St Aubin

  • There are so few old houses in Mauritius do not miss to visit Eureka. Place a little out of time bathed in his time with the furniture that older generations have seen in Europe at their grandparents. The tour is interesting. Lots of charm and a beautiful garden. Go see also waterfalls within 20 minute walk but bring shoes because the ground can be slippery. Possibility to have a drink, eat an ice or even a meal on the terrace. A good time in all cases
