Do you want to know about the establishment of vanilla production in Reunion? Then the heritage visit to La Cour Leroux, organised by "La Vanille des Laves" is tailor made for you! This guided, illustrated tour, enhanced by the addition of old photos, is a chance to find out about the cultural heritage and biodiversity of the village of Bois Blanc. The tour takes in all the significant old sites of this, the birthplace of vanilla; you'll see Creole houses and gardens, an old chapel, the remnants of the canning factory and even the old workers' housing - nothing has been overlooked. And if you're wondering who exactly is this Mr Leroux, well, he was once Reunion's leading figure in the world of "black gold" and owner of a 400 hectare vanilla plantation in Bois Blanc. So now it's time for you to immerse yourself in this experience that we know you're going to love! Recommendations: sportswear, walking shoes, wet weather gear, water, sunscreen, cap, change of clothing and shoes. Head for the Vanille des Laves shop in Sainte-Rose.
