Built in 1856, the Château de Labourdonnais has been the home of the Wiehe family for over 150 years. It was extensively refurbished in 2006 to restore its graceful colonial architecture to its original glory. Alongside the restoration work, the Compagnie Agricole de Labourdonnais (Labourdonnais Agricultural Company) appealed to two French experts, the museologist Claude Fauque and the scenographer Alexandre Fruh, to bring the cultural significance of the Château and its surrounding areas to the fore.

Today the Château de Labourdonnais is among Mauritius’ foremost cultural attractions and a flagship of national heritage. A visit to the area is an immersion into the art of living in 19th century Mauritius. From the moment they turn into the majestic Intendance tree-lined (Ficus Retusa) avenue leading to the Château, visitors will discover a magical place that shines a spotlight on Mauritian history, nature, cuisine and savoir-faire.
