Interesting facts about the PLANTATION HOUSE:

This landmark is part of the L'Union Estate and is another architectural jewel among the few plantation houses that still exist on the Seychelles there. As one of the oldest, the Plantation House is the centre of the L'Union Estate which originally belonged to the wealthy Hossen family who came to the Seychelles from Mauritius in the 19th century.

It is built in the French colonial style with floorboards on ceiling beams. The house has a thatched roof supported by poles and rafters, probably made of capucin or takamaka wood, the use of which was widespread in the early 20th century. The stairs on all four sides of the house are a feature of plantation houses from this period.

A few years ago, the house was used for the shooting of the film 'Goodbye Emmanuelle', and today it is one of the most treasured historical reminders of the Creole heritage in the Seychelles.

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.
