Imagine walking through the lush landscapes of Bel Ombre Mauritius, a place steeped in history and brimming with tales of centuries past. Here, amidst the swaying sugar cane fields and the whispering winds, you’ll uncover the incredible stories and historical legends that have shaped Mauritius into the vibrant nation it is today.

In the South Mauritius tour, let’s journey back in time to the genesis of Bel Ombre, a land born in 1765 when Simon Remirac and Claude de la Roche du Ronzet were granted a concession of 2,200 arpents. These names may not ring familiar to you, but they are the architects of the region we know today. It’s here that the story begins, a story with endless possibilities waiting to unfold.

Bel Ombre’s name first echoed through the pages of Bernardin de Saint-Pierre’s legendary novel, “Paul and Virginia.” But its true tale began to unfold in the late 18th century when cotton, coffee, and indigo dominated the landscape. It wasn’t until the administration encouraged farmers to delve into sugar production that Bel Ombre Mauritius truly began to thrive. Initially, sugar cane was solely used to produce arrack, a potent spirit sold to passing ships. However, by the end of the century, sugar cane emerged as a valuable agricultural resource, not just for Bel Ombre but for all of Mauritius.

In 1807, Calixte Chantoiseau laid the groundwork for what would become a flourishing sugar estate. Charles Telfair took over in 1816, injecting new life into the estate with innovative methods, technologies, and new sugar cane varieties. Over the years, the estate changed hands until it fell under the control of the colonial government. However, a sharp decline in sugar prices led to its sale to Mr. Hajee Jackaria Ahmed, an affluent Indian national who envisioned the prestigious Château de Bel Ombre from afar. Despite his grand plans, he never set foot on Mauritian soil and never beheld the national historic landmark he commissioned.

In 1910, Mauritians took ownership of the property, shaping it into what it is today. The reins were later taken over by the Rogers Group in 1971, under the leadership of Amédée Maingard. As the sugar factory closed its doors, the Compagnie Sucrière de Bel Ombre transformed into Agrïa, marking a new chapter in its storied history. Today, Agrïa stands as a testament to Bel Ombre’s past, a guardian of its cultural heritage, and a promise of exceptional experiences for nature and history enthusiasts alike. During this South Mauritius historical tour, you will witness it’s a place where the echoes of the past mingle with the whispers of the present.
