(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.

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.

  • Great and one of the very few remaining examples of colonial architecture. Behind the house there is a beautiful waterfall, although it is a bit of a hike.  more »
  • Home Eureka invites us to a journey in time. He let yourself carried away by the charm of this old House, move from room to room, admire the furniture, and imagine what could be the Le Clézio family life in this here. And rejoice that she is today open to the public even if obviously it lacks financial resources to rehabilitate. We have lunch under the veranda (very nice Mauritian menu), enjoyed the warm smile and affable personnel, we went up to the waterfall (without having the feeling of risk our lives as some wrote in comments) and we left happy with this visit.

  • The tour begins with the colonial House, with its antique furniture, outside is missing a little d maintains, components which s scale, roof wing, the garden is impeccable. The tour continues to the waterfalls. 15 min walk. Despite the lack of indication we can't get lost. However the route should d be tag. Attention, provide basketball and mosquito repellent! Avoid the days of rain, slippery. The waterfalls are beautiful. The person location n is not very cheerful.
