Trip Planner: Africa / Reunion Island / Arrondissement of Saint-Benoit / Salazie / Hell-Bourg / Maison Folio
Located at the heart of an old health resort, Maison Folio represents a prime example of 19th-century Creole architecture. A listed historical monument since 1989, this colonial villa stood in disrepair before Mr. and Mrs. Folio bought it and had it restored. A guided tour includes the mansion, the three outhouses in the back, and the surrounding gardens. Don't miss the Napoleon III-style fountain and intricately carved wooden gazebo next to it. Originally, the house most likely belonged to the head of the village hospital. A visit to Maison Folio represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hell-Bourg online holiday planner to plot your vacation.

One should not leave Hellbourg without visiting La Maison Folio. A typical old colonial house in an exotic garden with many herbs and orchids. The guide is very friendly, amusing and knowledgeable... more »
No one speaks english. It is a siimple house with interesting garden. but they could have named the plants since you only see a fraction of what they claim is there. more »
Beautiful house to visit. Really authentic Creole house which is well preserved. Unfortunately the guide and your is only available in French and no English information is provided. Would recommend to walk around a bit ! The garden is also great. Entrance without an guide was 4 € per person.
Beautiful créole house and lovely garden including aromatic plants. The guides explain (in French) the tools, food and language of the créole people. It was the best cultural activity I had on the island!
