Houmas House

Some photos from the interior of the plantation, the Houmas House. We had a very good and knowledgible guide and the tour was great. The owner of the plantation actually lives there and has an apartment for his mother on the grounds.

Our tour guide, who by the way spoke excellent French, played the piano for us.

I love a grand staircase.
