TOUR OF THE FARM
Welcome to our "Farming section". La Vieille Cheminée has agriculture in its DNA. The land where is now located the property was already harvesting tea and sugar cane back in the 19th century. The Old Chimney is a beautiful remnant of the sugar cane estate. We have since abandoned intensive agriculture and refocused on more traditional & sustainable techniques. We also produce our own Compost, Wood Chips and Potting Soil and surplus is sold in local gardening shops.
While exploring the farm, you can discover small plantations of Palm Trees, Bananas, Pineapples, Citrus and Avocados. You can also visit our organic vegetable garden which supplies our kitchen with fresh produce for preparing local dishes for our guests.
More recently we started offering visitors at La Vieille Cheminée a walking guided tour to discover and taste the products of our Tropical Farm (1h30min at Rs. 250 / person and free for kids). Please contact us to book your tour.
