St Aubin, Mauritius Overview

Mauritius is famed for its tea route, and one of the most important stops on the tea route is the St. Aubin House. Located on the southern coast of Mauritius, the St. Aubin House is an old colonial sugar plantation estate. Dating back to when it was built in the 1800s, the St. Aubin House was used as a residential building by the managers of the former sugar estate, which used to be right next to the mansion, before it was shifted a short distance away because of noise and pollution issues.

The estate was in regular use till the late 1900s, following which it was renovated and then preserved as a part of the country’s national heritage. Today, the estate is a stark difference from how it used to be when it was at the peak of its production. The St. Aubin House is renowned for its construction from wood that was dismantled from wrecked and old ships, and you can see ship poles and masts and other such carpentry at every step of the way as you tour the estate.
