Island meeting beaches
Reunion Island, one of the best kept secrets of the Indian Ocean, offers incredible landscapes: cliffs, ravines, coastlines, lagoons, lush forests, volcanoes and waterfalls. A beautiful combination, a cultural and natural kaleidoscope, a real surprise for the visitor… Welcome to… the “other” France!
Undoubtedly, another of the main tourist attractions of Reunion Island are its volcanoes. The volcano (Piton) of the Fournaise is a spectacle. Those of Reunion Island are not dangerous volcanoes because their activity is scarce and they are very predictable, although of course, volcanology is still not an exact science.

The island changed its name again in the 19th century: in 1806, under the First Empire, General Decaen called it Bonaparte Island, and in 1810 it became Borbon Island again. It became definitively Reunion Island after the fall of the July Monarchy by a decree of the Provisional Government on March 7, 1848. The French then landed to take over the island.
The French then landed to take possession of it on behalf of the king in 1642 and christened it Borbon Island, in honor of the royal family. In 1646, twelve mutineers expelled from Madagascar were abandoned on the island of Reunion.
Among the twenty settlers from France, the presence of Hervé Dannemont (later Dennemont), born on December 17, 1635 in Brix (Manche), son of Jacques Dannemont, a master glassmaker, and Marie Lecarpentier, stands out. He married around 1668 at Saint-Paul to Léonarde Pillé, a native of Granville. Hervé Dennemont died on November 16, 1678. The Dannemonts of Normandy are represented, today, by about thirty families on the island of Reunion. They are also found in Mauritius and Madagascar. In Normandy, the family died out in the 18th century, having changed its name to Dalmont (its descendants are well known thanks to Camille Ricquebourg, author of the Dictionnaire généalogique des familles de Bourbon).
