Maison Blanche

Historic Building in Mo'orea

In Maharepa, you can't miss this early-20th-century building on the mountain side of the road. It's a fine example of a fare vanira, a plantation house from Mo’orea’s vanilla-boom era. The Maison Blanche is now a souvenir shop and has a fairly typical selection of pareu (sarongs), Balinese woodcarvings, T-shirts, jewellery and other souvenirs.
