This is the ancestral home of Aimee Duboc de Rivery. Captured by pirates, she was sold to the Sultan of Constantinople as a slave, but rose to fame as the mother of Sultan Mahmoud II.

It is noticed that this place is opened from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. We arrived at 12:45 pm and we couldn't enter. The reason was "it's one hour to visit. So it's to late to let you enter". WTF! Make sure that your written...More

Very interesting to see the ruins of what life was like a few hundred years ago here on the islands. It's a bit of a walk down hill to arrive at the chateau. However, the views from the chateau are breathtaking overlooking the sea. A...More

Not really a chateau, but remnants of a 17th century plantation house and grounds. Interesting for a half hour visit, under the tropical heat and intense sun. The aristocrat from Normandy who went here to establish the place, must have been desperate to make some...More

The ruins are at the end of a relatively bumpy road, but easily accessible using the average rental (just go a bit slower). Drive as far as you can, unless you are keen walkers, trampers. It is only 5 euro pp for entry, and that...More
