Le Domaine des Aubineaux - discovery of a century-old place
Not far from Curepipe, located in Forest-Side, the residence of Aubineaux was built in 1872, one of the last typical colonial mansions of the late 19th century
The house, built from period wood, is adorned with pretty turrets that give it an imposing look, as well as a wide central corridor, rather unusual at the time. During the renovation, the owners did not want to change a thing, and the house has kept all its furniture and paintings of yesteryear.
Accompanied by a guide you will visit the living spaces and discover the history of the Mauritian family who lived there, a leap in time that will plunge you into the colonial past of the island.
You can also visit the old stables, transformed into a meeting room and distillery, where the secrets of the distillation of essential oils will be revealed to you.
