Nestled amongst beautiful oaks, this house offers first class RV accommodations and cabins for lodging

This post-Civil War era house is architecturally unusual when compared to many of the region’s other surviving plantations. While most of the grand homes in New Orleans Plantation Country are characterized by Greek Revival styling, Felix Poché Plantation stands as a fine example of a house influenced by the Victorian Renaissance Revival style. When Judge Felix Pierre Poché built the home in 1867, the land had already been the site of a large sugar cane plantation for many years. An accomplished attorney and Louisiana Supreme Court Justice, he went on to become the co-founder of the American Bar Association. Later, it was discovered that Judge Poché kept a Civil War diary which he had written in French. Detailing the world of a Confederate in Louisiana during the War Between the States, it has since been translated and published and is now considered an important resource for scholars. It remains one of the only Confederate diaries describing the Civil War in print. Visitors to Felix Poché Plantation are invited to tour its many rooms, which offer vivid recollections from the history of the home’s most distinguished families. There are also a wide variety of Felix Poche Plantation accommodations on the property. Their Bed & Breakfast offers guests romantic or family cottages and suites to choose from. Felix Poché is also a Class A Motor Coach RV Park, providing a full-service site designed to accommodate nearly every type of modern camping coach or fifth wheel home. Large concrete spaces, modern tower hookups, and state-of-the-art, digital conveniences await travelers, as well as all of the facilities you would expect from one of the first-class Louisiana RV parks. With its rich history, scenic environment, deluxe services, and varied accommodations, Felix Poché Plantation offers its guests a memorable stay in New Orleans Plantation Country.
