The Visit will start at the “Domaine des Aubineaux” and its gardens, a colonial house built in 1872, which has been converted into a museum dedicated to the history of Mauritian Tea.
A guide will walk you around during your visit, and will guide you on the history, stories and tales of the “Domaine
des Aubineaux” and of the importance of tea production in Mauritius.
Located a few kilometers from Grand Bassin, Bois Chéri is a tea factory and museum. Our guides will be happy to show and explain the different stages of production: from harvesting to packaging, through the withering, fermentation, drying and sieving.
We continue with a visit to the Colonial House of Saint Aubin followed by a guided tour of the domain and its rum distillery.
Lunch will be served at the Saint Aubin house in setting from a bygone era.
To end up your day, discover the Gris Gris View Point. Popular for its sea cliff, the Gris Gris Cape is good for enjoying some great views. There are no reefs along the coast to protect it from the strong waves making the beach a bit different from the other beaches of Mauritius. Despite the fact that the water is quite tempting to swim in, it is not recommended.
