The property thanks its popularity not only to the beauty of the house but mainly also to the splendid setting. 4 small waterfalls are located around the house, with the river banks being natural habitats for water lilies. The waters itself form the perfect home to the scampi ‘Madame Céré’, named after the wife of the similarly named governor. The Eureka house hosts many endemic plants, such as the Bois Pipe, the Makak, Bois de Rivière, Liane à gratter and the Mapou. End your visit by strolling through the souvenir shop and opt for a delicious Mauritian lunch at The Old Kitchen.
