You’ll notice how the plantation’s settings will transport you to a time that was rich in Creole culture and agriculture. Discover its botanic gardens and stroll through the palm groves. You’ll see it's an antique distillery, aging rooms, cellars, and how some its old distilleries have been beautifully restored. Learn how the 18th-century Clément House became the site of a meeting between French President François Mitterrand and President George Bush, Sr. to develop plans to end the Gulf War.
