Interesting facts about the KREOL INSTITUTE:

The International Kreol Institute is part of the Patrimwann. It was designed by the German architect Leit and built in 1920 by France Jumeau, a plantation owner, to promote Creole culture and tradition. The former name was Maison St. Joseph. As a large colonial house in French style, it reflects the wealth of the former landowners.

It regularly hosts traditional balls, French concerts, cultural exhibitions, and language and literature workshops. It also houses a documentation centre.


From Victoria, take the Bois de Rose Avenue south on the Providence Highway, at Airport straight on to the East Coast Road.
Travel time is about 20-25 minutes.
The Kreol Institute is located right next to the main road behind a green metal fence on a large well-kept plot on the right-hand side of the road just before the restaurant "Maison Marengo" and the "Craft Village - Domaine Val des Pres".

You can park on the roadside opposite the institute.

In 2007 I started the website to write everything I experienced from my head. Since then I have been constantly optimizing and expanding to eventually present a complete picture of Seychelles on this site.
