The sweet life of Poudre d’Or

Exploration of a historical village by the sea

My Moris takes you for a new experience into the heart of the serene Mauritian village life.

Come and discover the rich past of Poudre d’Or, that of French and British colonisation, with its cotton and indigo plantations and the stone-built architectural relics of these times. Together, we will travel in time, back to when the Saint Geran shipwrecked and inspired the tragic love story of Paul and Virginie.

We will stroll by bicycle and on foot, along the narrow streets of the village, where we will immerse ourselves in the daily lives of its inhabitants. The beautifully-kept flowery gardens, the bright and tangy colours of the houses around us and the warm greetings of the passersby will make us stop a few times and enjoy the moment…

Nested between the sea and the sugarcane fields, Poudre d’Or is a quaint place. We will wait for the pirogues coming back ashore with freshly-caught fish on the old jetty and talk to a fisherman braiding his bamboo fish traps. Exploring the different places of worship of the village, you will witness firsthand the fascinating spiritual realities of the island and how they blend together.

To finish on a high note, we have a lovely surprise for you: Mauritian tea will be served in an extraordinary place, a well-kept secret!

Poudre d'Or appeals to the humanity in each of us

Walking through the laid back village of Poudre d'Or I was - for the first time in a long life - aware of the practicalities that keep communities anchored. Poudre d’Or is a place where religions blend, and where men and women are inspired by the same God in many forms. I loved the roti chaud, the old pirogues in the bay, and the vanilla tea, overseen by Mary Joyce and her gentle humour. The Poudre d'Or tour appeals to the humanity in each of us. Thank you, for a delightful morning. Read more reviews...
