In addition to its charming accommodations in a unique setting, "La Vieille Cheminée" excels in its horse rides and other excursions. These guided excursions comprise several circuits of one, two or three hours.
Proposed exclusively to its residents, the excursions are a means to enjoy this huge and magnificent family-owned property and guest house among friends and relatives.
Zigzagging through sugar-cane, banana and pineapple fields, trailing the banks of the river, entering the cool shelter of the ravenalas and indigenous forests, over the river fords where the horses can momentarily unwind and our guests relax... so many places to discover - each one as wonderful as the next!
The Chamarel Falls and the Seven Coloured Earths are in the vicinity of our domain. What better way to discover them than by horseback, mountain bike or by foot?
In an attempt to thoroughly delight our guests, we leave the time, pace, and circuit of the excursions to their discretion.
The simple yet stylish 'Cabane' acts as our meeting point for all excursions where all guests are offered and served with refreshments both before and after their activities.
Our charming guide will gladly introduce you to the fauna and flora of the island whilst acquainting you with the history of our domain as well as the region as a whole.
For the two and three hour circuits after the rides, cool drinks, and sandwiches can be organized for our guests at the kiosk next to the pool.
Our horses are robust double Pony - originally from South Africa. They are extremely calm and gentle and are ideal for this type of riding.
