The house and gardens are absolutely beautiful. So many varieties of mango tree in the gardens with lush vegetation between, and a small pen of giant tortoises behind the house. We paid to do everything! The house is just as stunning inside as outside with...More

At first sight the colonial chateau is splendid. The laneway leading towards the estate impressive and it certainly gives the feel of a grandeur era gone past. Inside, that feeling of splendour soon evaporates. Although great care has been taken to restore the house to...More

Visiting the chateau is quite ordinary and in comparison to others not cheap to visit. Having a coffee at the restaurant really ruined the visit. In converted exchange we had to pay more than AU$12 for 1 espresso and one black coffee with milk. Seriously?!?...More

Very beautiful garden and palace and a restaurant. Unfortunately it's a popular palce for the weddings - so there is loud music which can completely destroy the atmosphere.

It's about 10 euro per adult to visit the mansion and a rum tasting. No guide or other service.

Go to tableduchateau restaurant site to see the menu (which looks similar to the one we had when we dined). You're probably better off emailing them to ask about your dietary restrictions and to check if the menu is... More
