Toured the Villa Louis today. The restorations in the last few years have made the mansion beautiful. Our guide Trevor was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. I also went on the Christmas tour last winter and enjoyed the decorations and music played on the piano.

Such a wonderful place with an interesting history. I have always wanted to stop here but did not have the time. I finally visited and was not disappointed at all. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great at answering any question given her. I even took some of the artisian water home! Will be going back for the Carriage Classic... More

My 13 year old daughter and I visited Villa Louis on Friday, April 24 for the Behind the Scenes tour. We were very impressed that we could actually walk into the rooms and get up closed to everything. Our tour guide (Susan) was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic! My daughter took many pictures and really enjoyed it as much as I... More

We go there 2 times a year. In the spring and in the fall. My 10 year old loves going there and is very intrigued with the history and the period dressed tour guides. 90% of the household items are original to the family. If you love history, you will love the Villa Louis

Villa Louis is an historic home on Saint Feriole Island. It is beautifully restored and would be an experience just to walk through but with out guide, Susan, it was an outstanding experience. She not only answered all of our questions but allowed us plenty of time to explore thing of personal interest. Unfortunately it was bitterly cold so exploring... More

This is the best and most complete example of a 1990's Victorian house I have seen in my travels across the USA. Approximately 90% of the furniture and fixtures that the owners possessed were preserved... pictures from the era helped restore the Villa to its 1990s grandeur. The guides are very helpful and knowledgeable. A "must see"!

BE there in time for a tour on the hour starting around 9:30. Mary was very informative about the home and the family, allowing for our own exploring when necessary.

We have visited many historical homes. The tour guide was excellent and the home lovely. Villa Louise is more than just the magnificent homes, there are several other buildings on the site and the mighty Mississippi.
