Houmas House Plantation and Gardens offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a Grand Southern Mansion surrounded by the South's most beautiful gardens. Our recent restoration of the Mansion and Gardens offers our guests a view of the way life was in the early 1800's when sugar was king and Houmas House was the largest sugar plantation in the world. Guests will view a museum quality collection of antiques and artwork and will enter each of the rooms. There are no ropes to restrict the experience of touring the Mansion. We offer two restaurants to enhance the experience. Our Latil's Landing Restaurant is in the French House built in 1775, and is a part of the Grand Mansion. Latil's was named one of the Top 20 Restaurants in America by Esquire Magazine.
