Anyone visiting Louisiana should make sure to visit the Oak Alley Plantation. This place is rich in history and has a charm that captures visitors and this is why it is considered a luxury travel spot. There are tours led by beautiful girls dressed as ladies of the south, we can admire the main mansion and discover the secrets and curiosities with a history of family ownership.
The best part which makes this place special is the wonderful gallery of oak trees that creates a magical main entrance to the house. This marvel is composed of 16 old trees that have been there for 300 years, exactly a hundred years before the construction of the mansion and we still do not have definite information about their creation.
This splendid example of architecture of the south is testimony to the region’s past, made of plantation slavery and life along the Mississippi. Oak Alley has been declared one of the most romantic places in Louisiana and every day is a witness to marriage proposals or is the setting for beautiful wedding receptions.
Many already know the villa and its park were in fact the set of many films and productions, including the most famous “Interview with a Vampire” and the music video for Beyonce “Dejavù.” This summer, the property could again enjoy the presence of Mr. Brad Pitt host of one of the cottages during the filming of “Twelve Years”. After you have finished your visit be sure to sip Mint Julip refreshing drink drunk at the time of the slaves for refreshment on hot days working on the plantation.
