Along the tea route

From Aubinaux to Saint-Aubin, the tea route stands out as a great traditional breakaway for discovering Mauritius' colonial past.  

Destination: the Domain Aubinaux, one of the last colonial houses typical of the late 19th century.

Smelling the distinctive aromas of the antique wooden furniture—mostly dating from the East India Company—while discovering the old photographs is already quite a trip. The charming garden of camphor trees that surround the building is a haven of tranquillity. But already Bois Chéri, the second stage of the journey, arouses curiosity. After a tour of the tea factory, where you will be infused with the knowledge of its manufacturing secrets, take time to enjoy a cup, and offer yourself a contemplative break on the terrace of the chalet with its panoramic view over the south of the island.

In Saint-Aubin, the last leg of your journey, there will still be much to discover: a colonial house from 1819, a sugar factory, and a distillery.
