June 2, 2008 - PRLog -- This issue is reminiscent of the majestic colonial houses of a bygone era. Read about the beautifully restored 'Eureka', also known as the 'house of the 109 doors'; one of the oldest and most impressive colonial houses left in Mauritius, entirely evocative of a sophisticated lifestyle.
Our Discovery page guides you along the fascinating journey of the 'Tea Route'. Step back in time
and unveil the former history of the island. Visit the 'Domaine des Aubineaux', another remarkable
colonial house tribute to the timeless elegance of a nostalgic past.  
Follow suit with a tour of the Bois Cheri Tea Factory, tea being an undisputed national favourite, perhaps a legacy of the British period. Complete the experience with an enchanting lunch at Le Saint Aubin, a stunning plantation house of the last century.
And upon your gentle return to today's reality.
Witness the fascinating colours of a hybrid postcolonial Mauritian identity; participate in the local festivals and marvel at the unique cultural customs as you watch three continents merge on just a little over 2000 square kilometres.
Our lifestyle Interview illustrates how the old can combine with the new for an encounter of a lifetime with the innovative concept of 'Walk with the Pride'
at the Safari Adventures.
