(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Adventure into the history of Mauritius at Chateau De Labourdonnais, a restored mansion displaying an attractive neoclassical Italian style of architecture. Built in 1859, the house offers impressive grounds famous for their many species of orchids, a rum distillery still producing fine drinks by the bottle and glass, and a museum providing an overview of the island nation and the family that owned the property. Head to the tasting room and restaurant to sample the produce from the gardens and surrounding agricultural land, and watch the film about the recent restoration of the building in the onsite screening room.

  • Although touristy, Labourdonnais Castle is a must in Mauritius. It is a beautiful colonial House, you can visit almost in its entirety, with the gardens and then end up on a rum tasting, fruit juice and pulp of fruits, everything is homemade. There is also a nice store for your memories as well as a restaurant serving fine cuisine.

  • Very charming and really nice to visit place, restoring is impressive especially when you look at the film of the renovation. Then, the garden is very pretty and at the end there is a tasting rums and jams.
