This is followed by a drive across the Sans Soucis mountain pass, with a photo stop at the historical Mission Lodge. The tour continues around the southern tip of the island to the restored colonial plantation of 'Jardin du Roi', which is steeped in the short history of the Creoles as well as the Georges family,whose family tree apparently carries a link to Louis XVII of France.
