Now operating as a bed and breakfast, the Bocage Plantation used to be a 10,000-acre sugar plantation built in the late 1700s to early 1800s. It was initially owned by Marius Pons Bringier and passed on to his daughter Francoise who married Christophe Colomb, as a gift. The plantation was primarily managed by Francoise. The building of Bocage Plantation today is a rework of the original one that burnt before 1837. The name of the ?bocage? was a French word for ?shady retreat?.
Today?s Bocage Plantation is owned by Marion Rundell. It is now a 110-acre property that looks like a 19th century building on the outside but is fully equipped as a modern bed and breakfast on the inside. It features amenities that are up to date and will surely provide full comfort to its guests.
