Fodor's Expert Review Eureka House
Built in 1830, the Eureka House was formerly owned by British and French aristocrats. During those times, it was among the island’s biggest houses. It now offers a glimpse of colonial history in Mauritius. The Eureka House also organizes eco adventures around the acres of beautiful nature reserve, as well as themed evenings, conferences, and weddings. Visitors can enjoy a stroll in the huge, pretty garden. Guided tours are available Monday through Saturday 9–5, and Sunday 9 –3:30. It's a simple site that's worth a stop.
