Details

Tea Route is a unique and charming walk combining history, culture and gastronomy. Through the Domaine des Aubineaux, the Domaine de Bois Chéri and the Domaine de Saint Aubin, this ecotourism circuit takes place in three stages and allows you to discover the perfumed world of tea, sugar, rum and vanilla.

The Domaine des Aubineaux

This tour begins with the Domaine des Aubineaux, one of the last colonial mansions of the late 19th century, located in the highlands of the island. Explore this sublime home built in 1872, where you will find furniture dating from the East India Company, as well as a beautiful collection of vintage photos illustrating the life of the owners.

The visit continues to the Bois Chéri tea factory, where the different stages of tea processing will be presented, from picking to bagging. You will then have a tour in the fascinating tea museum.

To end this visit, a tasting is offered in a chalet with a spectacular view of the region and the entire south of the island. You can even taste tea scented delights, homemade!

The Domaine de Saint Aubin

The Tea, Rum and Vanilla Route is a fascinating journey into the heart of traditional Mauritius. A few kilometers from Souillac, the Domaine de Saint Aubin offers several points of interest to visit: a candy factory turned into a museum, a greenhouse of anthuriums and vanilla, a distillery, a mini farm and a sumptuous colonial house that dates from 1819. The house has been converted into a restaurant, while the floor has been transformed into a naval museum where historical models are exhibited.
