The manor house of the Domaine des Aubineaux was built in 1872 in a classic colonial style, and in 1889 it was the first residence on the island to be outfitted with electricity. The plantation was transformed into a museum in 2000, and today it marks the first stop on the historical La Route du Thé . Keep an eye out for old photographs preserving the memory of the local colonial manses that have fallen victim to harsh weather and the relentless passage of time. Exotic plants fill the garden under the shade of camphor trees, and when you're ready for a break you can sip savoury teas in the converted billiard parlour.
