The 19th century Saint Aubin Residence stands as a graceful testimony to the architectural aesthetics of the colonial era. Built in 1819 close to the mill, it was originally the home of the owners of the sugar plantation. In the 1990’s, the house underwent significant renovation.
The mill has been turned into a live eco museum where locals and tourists alike can observe all the manufacturing stages of the sugar milling process. It is today acknowledged as part of our national architectural heritage. The house has been turned into a table d’hôte. In what used to be its living room, as well as on the traditional sheltered terrace, the ancient residence now hosts a restaurant serving local and authentic cuisine.

On the menu: cocktail and fritters, heart of palm salad and smoked marlin, Creole or vanilla chicken and its array of accompaniments and condiments, coconut mousse or fruit of the season sherbets.
The Inn- ‘L’auberge’
Nestling within the heart of an oasis of luxurious vegetation a short distance away from the distillery, the Saint Aubin Inn was built in 1908 by the then Sugar Estate Administrators. In 2003 it was converted into a guest house.
Saint Aubin Inn is a typical traditional Creole house with an iron sheeting roof resting on exposed timber beams, teak wood flooring and ancient furniture. The Inn proposes 3 rooms decorated in three different styles for a choice of colonial, creole or Indian ambience. An exotic garden, a pool, bicycle and horse riding are available for leisure activities.
