  • The Villa Rivière, in Saint-Paul is a typical Creole house, built at the end of the 18th century. It's a listed building.

    La Villa Rivière is a private residence that is open to the public; it is a late 18th century historical monument. The house, which is often described as a "gem" or "jewel" by those who've visited it, is particularly interesting due to its neoclassical architecture, the quality of its restoration and its interior, which is typical of the East India Company period. In essence, the Villa Rivière is a private museum devoted to Indian Ocean decorative arts. Guided visits offered throughout the year upon booking from Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 and 2:00pm.

  • Visite agréable et passionnante

    La visite de la villa Rivière,  c'est une parenthèse hors du temps,  dans un jardin et une maison du patrimoine réunionnais parfaitement restaurés et agencés avec goût.  Notre guide nous a parfaitement accompagné.  Je recommande absolument cette découverte au coeur de Saint-Paul.

  • A faire au centre-ville de Saint-Paul

    Superbe visite guidée dans le centre-ville de Saint Paul à notre grande surprise. On n'imagine pas une telle demeure créole depuis l'extérieur. Très belle visite guidée, très belle case et jardin créole.
