Turn back time as you step into the courtyard of La Demeure Saint-Antoine where a splendid and perfectly preserved creole-style colonial residence stands tall. Built in 1830 by Edmond de Chazal, it is one of the rare grand colonial residences still standing in Mauritius, featuring a pillared veranda all around the house, a series of adjoining rooms and antique furniture made of precious wood. The courtyard is home to century-old trees and majestic banyans, among which one can take long walks and enjoy the laid-back Mauritian countryside lifestyle.
Owned by the same family since its construction, it has been partly transformed into a restaurant and welcomes you for lunches, dinners or tea parties. The cuisine is tasty and refined and the staff will take care of your every need.
