After years of traveling around the world, he decided to create a Traditional Polynesian Village on Moorea Island in order to promote and to keep alive Polynesian culture.

About 20 families have been living in the village since then: they welcome visitors during day time and on evenings too, and show them Polynesia’s past and present wonders.

Wickerwork, Tifaifai, pareo painting, etc. are still done in the village; they are shown to the visitors and taught to the young generation to ensure these ancient skills live on.

A renovation program has been in progress following a change of owner: a refresh of buildings and new ideas such as a cultural exhibition around different themes:
Discover French Polynesia
Tahiti and its outfits
Polynesian people and navigation
The Great Men of French Polynesia
The Great Tahitian pearl
Fauna and Flora of The Islands[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type= »transparent » up= »10″ down= »20″][vc_gallery type= »image_grid » images= »16907,16908,16796,16909,16850,16797,16795,16825″ img_size= »300×300″ column_number= »4″ grayscale= »no » images_space= »gallery_without_space »][vc_separator type= »transparent » up= »20″ down= »10″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
