Within the Domaine de la Pointe des Châteaux, La Maison du Coco, the only producer of virgin coconut oil in Europe, is a farm with over 7 hectares, nestled in the heart of a coconut plantation and a tropical orchard.
There, visitors will discover all the secrets of the "Tree of life" (the coconut tree) via an interactive workshop consisting of 3 stages:
- Origin and uses of the coconut on Reunion island: Learn all about this palm tree and the various uses of its fruit, the coconut
- Culinary transformations: Cook the coconut, learn to clean it, grate it sat on the traditional stools and there you have it, everyone is ready to make lovely coconut sweets or coconut punch.
- Palm weaving introduction: Learn the basics of this age-old tradition.
You will have a tasting session: fresh coconut, water, virgin oil, molasses, coconut sugar, as well as our artisanal sorbet.
Finally, La Maison du Coco also offers a completely coconut lunch! Impossible not to succumb to temptation.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 9:30 am to 16:3 pm.
