Chateau De Labourdonnais, Mapou

(4.5/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • 跟其他庄园差不多,叫城堡都觉得有点不好意思,陈设不多,展厅不大,385卢比的门票让我等见惯了五千年中华文明的国人大呼不值。庄园目前尚在运营,种植有瓜果蔬菜绿植,香草玉米等作物,拥有以庄园冠名的朗姆酒,果汁,冰淇淋等。坐小火车游览庄园一圈又另收200多卢比。最有趣的是城堡前种了很多芒果树,成熟季节遍地都是落下的芒果,保安说可以捡不能摘,于是连吃带拿收获了不少芒果,味道纯正,纤维少,也算意外的收获。 
  • In a beautiful setting, this is one of the most beautiful witnesses of the period that saw Europeans give this stunning island an undeniable boom.

  • What an interesting place to visit, and on a day out exploring this part of the the island it's worth an hour to pass by.
  • Relaxing..and good restaurant ($$$$)
  • I like it
  • 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.
