One hour - one hour to explore a part of the Reunion Island of bygone days.
One hour to enjoy the idyllic setting of Maison Folio, an authentic creole-style house (case) at the heart of the Cirque of Salazie, in Hell-Bourg, one of the most beautiful villages of France. One hour to learn about an era when the great creole families would leave the heat of the coastal areas, to relax and unwind in the cool highlands. One hour to stroll around a magnificent garden with a surprising “guétali” kiosk, a fountain, paved footpaths... These are all symbols of the “creole way of life”, for a journey through the exotic scents of the ornamental, aromatic and medicinal plants that fill the gardens. And finally, one hour to explore one of the buildings on the estate, where you can now find on display a range of furniture and objects of the past, made from the wood from the Bois de Couleur des Hauts forest. Have you got an hour to spare? If you have, come and book your guided tour! If you haven’t, maybe you should, just one.
