Adventure into the history of Mauritius at Chateau De Labourdonnais, a restored mansion displaying an attractive neoclassical Italian style of architecture.

  • Very interesting field superbly restored. The documentary tells all the stages of the renovation. Beautiful garden and orchard. Nice tasting rums and fruit pulp. The jams are excellent and the shop is very nice things but very expensive.

  • Very welcome to the purchase of tickets on Nov. 7 to 12: 00. The House or Castle very well maintained, nice to see but really fast. But on the level of the tasting was very unpleasant, it seemed to hinder and especially we were well put warning that we were allowed 2 drinks several times (we had not come to ca), we had the right to the fruit and pasta after disappearance of the woman who was supposed to take care of us We had especially come taste the jams, but we did not have the right (yet there was a nice basket with tasting jams) let doubt hover maybe she forgot! Suddenly at the shop we bought nothing, we make you a good pub at the level of the reception of the customers. I really think and makes me the trouble that we were not the kind of clientele you want to have in your institution.

  • Very nice castle and gardens with Turtles, Oranges and Sugar plants. The ticket to the castle includes a small Rum-Tasting. We could each choose 2 out of 10 different flavoured Rums.
  • Come and discover the Chateau constructed between 1856 - 1859 by Christian Wiehe. The colonial house still belongs to the same family, decorated in British and French styles, marvellous wall papers and furniture, chandeliers. The 5 tortoises will be glad to say hello. Discover our ancient orchards with their variety of fruits and spices.
  • Just wow. need to pay a visit & enjoy it.
  • Amazingly restored colonial manor!
  • Peaceful
