Chateau De Labourdonnais, Mapou

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.

  • Nice atmosphere. Bad food. Vegetarian main course tastes like vomit and deserts are above tolerable amount of sugar
  • A beautifully restored mansion. Amazing garden to relax and enjoy a variety of locally produced Rum and jelly fruit cubes. A definite bucket list item for all tourists visiting the North of Mauritius. Beautiful antique furniture on display. Wooden floors to blow your mind away. Craftsmanship of outstanding historical value. This gem is only 10 minutes from Grand Baie
