  • This House is located at the end the the aisle of Palm trees in the place d'armes. Beautiful colonial House. Calls for a picture.

  • It looks on the outside, but it cannot be visited inside. It is clean and tidy, which contrasts with the rest of the city chaotic and sloppy

Where to stay in Port Louis

Port Louis doesn't have a huge range of places to stay--and the city is not the most bustling after dark. Still, you'll find a couple of options here and there. On the waterfront, a few viable luxury lodgings offer amenities such as annexed seafood restaurants, bars, and air conditioning. Alternatively, head farther down the coast for numerous better value options in dedicated tourist resorts. Even relatively small fishing villages have some decent homestay or guesthouse lodgings.
