Beautiful creole plantation. We had a wonderful tour guide thru the plantation. Would recommend to others. Located in Saint Martinville, La. Charming town with some history.

Wifee and I had a beautiful walk among the grounds. The attraction is not mapped, but as you stroll around you'll see different areas you can walk to. You'll see a 350 yr old tree. Walk across a short bridge and fields to other structures.

The tour guide is awesome with his Louisiana history. He was so gracious with his knowledge of the area and of this plantation. A very worthwhile stop while in St. Martinville or even to come back too!
