The Majestic Château de Labourdonnais 

At the heart of the estate stands the Château de Labourdonnais, a testament to Mauritian heritage. Built in 1856 and home to a Mauritian family for over 150 years, the Château has been meticulously restored to its former glory. Today, it serves as a museum, offering visitors a glimpse into the art of living in 19th-century Mauritius. But the Château is more than just a museum. It’s a place where you can explore lush gardens, discover an underground museum, visit a turtle park, and even delight in a small farm. And don’t forget to stop by La Boutique du Château to taste local products and pick up a souvenir or two!
