Domaine de Severin Reviews
What a wonderful find. We really loved visiting this historic plantation. It’s not that old but we really got a sense of history while here. It was very interesting to wander through the old house... more »
A variety of things to see. The old house which has been kept well, the gardens with a trolley train if you prefer to be transported rather than walk. The shop has some rum tasting before purchasing..... more »
The distrillery has been closed down and its equipment destroyed. They still offer tours to show the beautiful area and give a little history lecture.
Disappointed! The destillery does not exist anymore (since feb 2019). That was not written anywhere and we went here in hopes of seeing how they make rhum, but we didn't. They have lowered the price from 11€ to 9€ due to this but it ain't worth coming here to be honest. For this price all you get is a 20min walk in a garden (non-guided), a few rhums to try and a VERY DULL "train ride" in the end (maybe fun for kids below 8 yrs?). There were still Rhum available for sale though. Maybe it was once worth coming here but since the destillery is gone I do not recommend this place, sadly.
