St-Cloud Castle

Interesting
Inland and easily accessible from La Passe and Anse Réunion along the La Veuve nature reserve, St Cloud castle was built in around 1820. It stands at the foot of a mountain in the heart of a former vanilla plantation, at its peak in the late 19C before synthetic vanilla was invented (in the early 20C). Part of the building is occupied by a hotel, but there's nothing to stop you from having a drink here and enjoying the superb gardens all around.
