  • For all lovers of poetry, this is the home of the greatest Mauritian poet. He wrote lyrics dedicated to this beautiful island. And this House museum celebrates it. The site is free. The caretaker is a strong guy! Definitely passionate. Unfortunately we were the only visitors of the day.

  • Robert Edward Hart's House has been turned into a museum admission is free. Located in a beautiful seaside location right in the Centre of Souillac. Coming from the West on the main road to get to the House, turn right and follow the signs. There is a keeper that controls that visitors do not spring free photographs (I wonder why there is this inexplicable prohibition) and that is available to give explanations about the life of the writer. Hart is a poet of the early twentieth century, Symbolist current follower was born shortly before in France. The House is small and with a not overly exciting but what gives you the idea of what was supposed to be the home of a Mauritian of the bourgeoisie of a hundred years ago. Are exposed, in addition to the furniture, even the poet autograph pages (of which I did not know existed). But the best thing is the ocean. The House looks right on the water at a point where several fishermen on the beach fishing with a rod.

  • I am not really a fan of museums but the setting and the sea view are really magical. I can absolutely understand how such beautiful poetry was created there, at Souillac. The light is wow. The wind is delicate. And the sound of the waves, a pure bliss. I recommend going there but also exploring the surrondings.
