Discover Colonial houses Mauritius

Actual private museums, the houses of the old planters are generally found on the hills of the island, in the heart of beautiful gardens. Built on ground level, they have a veranda - an open gallery, along the façade and under which the dwellers of the house kept cool. In order to get a better idea of this type of house, the best thing to do is to pay a visit to the Domain of Eureka (see picture). Situated in the north, in Moka, this residence belongs to the family of the French writer Le Clézio. Transformed into a museum in 1986, it displays beautiful furnishings of the East India Company. The owners have even rearranged some of the outbuilding into a guest house. So it is possible to stay on this exquisite estate.

    Original colonial architecture is fast becoming a thing of the past, but it is still possible to find; in Port-Louis, the capital, for example.
