Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Happened for a simple coffee we found this House and all the energy that these owners to restore it and clear the wear of time and the climate. The guided tour will allow children and adults to discover life on the island at the time spent with the comfort of the time! The waterfalls are imperative. A very good address to do not miss

  • Was here with our two girls at 6 and 9 years old. Maybe not the perfect place for the aged but they thought it was pretty cool because they were convinced that the haunted there. The House itself is fine with many fine old furniture but it is unfortunately quite poor condition of many of the things, probably because of the many tourist fingers. What we appreciated most was the walk down to the waterfall at their place is right. But it felt like we were in a jungle.

  • This wooden house, typical of the colonial period, is still furnished with time, has a pleasant garden and allows access to 2 pretty waterfalls below (attention sometimes slippery rocks and think of the mosquito in the damp undergrowth). Not essential but characteristic for anyone interested in the past of the island.

  • I really liked this colonial house! I would advice you to go have lunch there: the restaurant is really nice (not cheap, but not expensive either) and when you eat there you do not have to pay the entrance fee to the mantion. I recommend the merlin salad as the entry and beef dry curry as main dish...
