Nearby the village of Ferney, Falaise Rouge is an estate that stands majestically in the bay of Grand Port. Wrapped in a tropical garden of traveller's Palm and Indian Almond trees, this newly renovated site fully dedicated to delicious Mauritian cuisine, offers a panoramic view on this historic bay, witness of the only victory of the Napoleonic naval forces against the British.
Falaise Rouge is ideal for your business or family meals, your end of year parties, your dinners, cocktails or weddings, your seminars and board meetings, as well as the launching of your new products.
Ferney’s garden is an idyllic place to have a walk or to simply sit down for a while admiring nature beauty. It is there that we have our coffee plantation and Ferney’s restaurant kitchen garden.

Our nursery is vital for our conservation plan. Once the juvenile plants are plucked from the soil it is repotted in our nursery among a wide variety of endemic species. In the nursery, they grow to reach a level of maturity in order for them not to die when they are replanted in the conservation zone.Plan your visit
