Mauritius Things to Do: 362 reviews and 613 photos
Eureka is an old Colonial house which is laid out in a very unusual way with no hallways - all the rooms lead from another with a verandah enclosing around the whole house. It was built in 1830 by an Englishman with the help of a French designer so it has a funny combination of English and French colonial styles.
Eureka is set against the backdrop of the mountains so it is worth going out into the back garden to get a look at the scenery. If you have time, go through the gardens and walk down the path to the waterfalls which are set down in a rocky valley and very pretty.
They have rooms you can rent per night and also serve meals on the verandah, but we didn’t try either of these.
Maison Eureka is open 9-5 mon to sat, 9-3.30 sun
