This low, Creole style mansion, built at the end of the 18th Century, was home to both French and English well-to-do colonial families, and on display within the house are antiques and pieces from Mauritius’s colonial period including photos of the families who lived here.

One of the nicest features of this home for its inhabitants must have been the wide wooden veranda that runs almost all the way around the outside of the house, offering views into the garden local plants –palms, mangoes and bright tropical flowers – and the ordered English style gardens. Waterfalls from the Moka River feed into the garden keeping it lush.

The current owner is the one to show you round, offering a very personal insight into the life and history of the house.
