La Vieille Cheminée is a small working farm with six private eco lodges. 

We are located in Chamarel, Mauritius. 

The farm produces tropical vegetables, fruits and compost from sustainable agriculture. We also hosts six friendly horses and many other animals. 

We invite our guests to discover the farm, enjoy walks or horse rides, while staying in one of our cozy and well-equipped eco-lodges.


Light a fire, enjoy the calm evenings and soundless nights. 

Put on your rain boots and jump in the mud like when you were 10 years old.
