The Labourdonnais Orchards

Tropical fruit trees, colourful and perfumed exotic flowers.Trips on mountain bikes or hiking are possible.

The château de Labourdonnais was built in 1858 by Christian Wiehe, an insightful man, whose numerous descendants still mostly live in Mauritius today. Soon afterwards, a tropical orchard was planted on the lands of the Domaine, which still holds a few centenary mango trees. A sugar factory was also built in Labourdonnais and the estate’s main economic activity remained sugar production. When the factory was demolished in 1960, major agricultural diversification took place with the creation of a 50-hectare modern orchard, planted with a wide variety of tasty tropical fruits such as mangoes, litchis, pineapples, guavas, bananas, passion fruit, kumquat, grapefruit and other citrus. The annual fruit production lies around 1000 tons and enables the manufacture of various naturally flavoured fruit by-products like fruit bars, jams, marmalades and fresh fruit juice.
