This was once a big coffee plantation. It is now a historic restoration and grows a little coffee. The tour tells about some of the tropical plants, making of coffee, and the history of the plantation. The tour ends with coffee or chocolate. Keep your ticket to turn in when you get your coffee.
As others have pointed out, the road to the plantation itself will have you wondering why you ever decided to go and whether you're going in the right direction. Blame the coffee plant for preferring high altitude locations. Once you've made the journey, the tours start on the hour and cost about 7.50 euros per person and include a drink... 更多
We (2 adults and 2 young of 9 and 13 years, just loved it. You learn so much in so little time. The lady who showed us around was very experienced, a very good communicator capable of adapting herself to any sort of traveler. Really interesting, beautiful and nicely restored plantation.

We don't speak any French at... 更多

The tours are only on the hour, so depending when you arrive you may have... 更多
Very nice and easyunderstanding even if the guided tours only was in french. the guided spent 10 min to let you know the most important things about coffeeproduction and the life at the farm. The road to the farm is very narrow, drive carefully!
Place is hidden high in the mountain (I was a bit stressed on that narrow road), the views are stunning! The place itself can be visited quite fast. The guide was nice (only French spoken) and told us a lot about the plants- coffee, cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, bananes and many more. You can see how the coffee is processed. It... 更多
