The Domaine de Val des Près is ready to give visitors a true experience of the culture and heritage of Seychelles after undergoing major renovation and refurbishment.
The Creole and craft village at Au Cap in the southeast of the main island of Mahe is one of the three heritage sites managed by the Seychelles Heritage Foundation.
The village comprises of the last authentic traditional creole homestead on the islands as well as the Pomme Cannelle restaurant – a traditional plantation house – and several kiosks selling arts and crafts from Seychelles – a group of 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean.
The jewel of the village is the Grann Kaz, a beauty showcasing craftsmanship and carpentry with its wooden carved balustrades – a reminiscence of the grand blanc era.
The chief executive of the Seychelles Heritage Foundation, Benjamine Rose, told SNA last week that revamping the Creole village is part of the foundation’s strategic plan.
