Day 2 - Chateau de Labourdonnais
The Château de Labourdonnais is a family home that has welcomed more than three generations of the Wiehe family. Added to 150 years of weathering, the tropical climate and insects, among other factors, had begun to cause a marked deterioration to the house, particularly to the structure and decorative elements.

In 2006, the Board of Directors of the Compagnie Agricole de Labourdonnais entrusted Jacques Wiehe, a professional architect, to the task of restoring the château to its original state. The compagny conceptualizes, alongside the restoration work, a reflection on the cultural significance of the château and the estate. Claude Fauque and Alexander Fruh, respectively a museologist and a renowned French designer, were contacted. Their brief was to present the Château de Labourdonnais as a cultural place following the concept of "a château in a natural setting" where its history, flora, orchards, cuisine and Mauritian expertise would be highlighted.

Encounter the idyllic beauty and natural wonders of south Mauritius on a day trip
Start your experience with a pickup from your hotel in the north, east, west or south of the island and head to Mauritius’ verdant southern region. Enjoy the scenery and learn about the area’s flora, fauna and history from your guide as you go.

Your first stop is Le Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes, an idyllically lush nature reserve famous for its exotic wildlife. Walk the nature trail and see the giant Aldabra giant tortoise and Nile crocodiles at the breeding centers. There are more than 1,500 crocodiles of different ages here and, as you watch them feed, the reserve guide will explain each stage of their development and how they came to be on Mauritius.

Continue to the Saint Aubin Sugar Estate, where tropical gardens surround a 19th-century colonial house.

Also, visit the quaint rum distillery to taste and learn about the delicious rum still produced here.

Afterward, take in the views at Gris Gris, the island’s most southerly point. Here, the Indian Ocean batters the basalt cliffs with incredible force due to the absence of barrier reefs. Capture the views on camera and then board your coach for your return journey.
