Maison Eureka, Mauritius
(3.4/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • The Interior of the House is well maintained certainly after this is nothing exceptional I find... The staff of places is soft, who. Just to pick up tickets. Behind the House is the cascades 15-20 walk down the small path that starts at the bottom left of the garden. Fortunately, I walk with the guide of routard, otherwise I would have never known it. In short they are to see the ride is fun to do. On the other hand do not you bathe the water is green!

  • After visiting the ancient House with furniture and antiques, you can do a small hike around the grounds, to go down to 3 waterfalls and possibly all the way to the scenic body of water surrounded by natural green walls. Some exuberant tourist can take this opportunity to take a bath: If the costume is optional, the repellent is almost a must as there are quite a few mosquitoes.
