Property Description

Enjoy Louisiana Creole cuisine in a fine dining atmosphere in the original French House built in the 1770's by Alexander Latil. The 230 year old house, complete with original beamed ceilings, cypress mantels, wood burning fireplaces, and original wood floors, is overlooks the Hampton Fountain and Gardens. Seven course tasting menus available as well as a la carte dining. The best way to experience life like a wealthy Sugar Baron is to dine like one.


FROM BATON ROUGE Take Interstate - 10 East to Gonzales. Take Exit 179 (Hwy 44). Turn right off the exit onto Hwy 44 and proceed past Pelican Point Homes and Golf Club, across the intersection with LA Hwy 22. After you cross HWY 22, go about a half mile and turn right at the levee onto River Road. Houmas House is on your right in less than a half mile. Enter the parking area on the far side of the property just past the white fence along the front of the property. FROM NEW ORLEANS Take Interstate -10 West across the Bonnet Carre Spillway, past LaPlace and Gramercy to Exit 182 (Hwy 22). At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn left on LA Hwy 22. Passing under the Interstate, you will proceed straight ahead on Hwy 22, past the turnoff to Donaldsonville, the Cajun Village and in front of the Ascension Parish Visitor's Center. Hwy 22 bends to the right in a long arc before you come to the light at LA HWY 44. Turn left on Hwy 44 and proceed less than half a mile to the River Road. Turn right at the levee and look for the entrance to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens about half a mile down the road, just at the end of the white fence that spans the front of the property.
