A taste of France in the middle of the Caribbean

You can get 2 vacations in 1 if you book a Fort-de-France Bay vacation rental. The island city is the capital of France's Caribbean holdings, combining chic European influences, a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle, and just enough French creole jazz influences to keep things really interesting. The picturesque bay shares its name with the city that skirts it on Martinique's west coast. The fantastic beaches are rivaled only by the energy of the vibrant city , full of enough shopping, dining, and entertainment options to keep you busy for days, plus some great sightseeing to boot.

Lose yourself in the sounds of the music

Music seems to be everywhere in the streets of Fort-de-France, creating a memorable soundtrack for the lively street scene. Take a stroll along the seafront promenade, or pick up some one-of-a-kind souvenirs at the indoor craft market (maybe time it when the cruise ships aren't in port for the best selection). Of course, this is the Caribbean, so there'll be no shortage of beach time when you book your Fort-de-France Bay vacation rental, whether you're looking to work on your tan or frolic in the sea. La Savane is a popular area for scenic walks and relaxing picnics.

Fort-de-France isn't the only fort in town

You'll find not 1, but 4 forts near your Fort-de-France Bay vacation rental. The city is home to Fort Saint Louis, an active naval base dating from 1640, Fort Desaix, built in the 1760s, the 12th-century Fort Tartenson, and Fort Gerbault. For churches, you have the Sacre-Coeur de Balata Church, modeled after the one in Paris, and the late 19th-century St. Louis Cathedral. The city's most notable landmark is probably the colorful domed Bibliotheque Schoelcher, built in Paris for the 1889 World Exposition and reassembled here.

The weather is the same every day, and it's always warm

If you're not a big fan of weather extremes, you've definitely come to the right place. The temperatures range from warm to very warm, with about a 15-degree (at most) temperature range all year long. Year-round highs are in the 80s, while lows are consistently in the 70s. The only real difference between seasons is the rainfall—December to June are relatively dry, while July through November see the most rain. The largest threat of hurricanes comes in September and October, so it's best to check the forecast in advance.

From rolling hills to rolling waves, nature here is sublime

Skirting the west coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France Bay is formed where the mouth of the Madame River meets the Caribbean Sea. There's plenty of seafront real estate to go around, including some prime beach spots for enjoying the crashing waves and the stellar sunsets. Agriculture is thriving, with prime exports consisting of rum, sugar, fruit, and cacao. Inland, you'll find serene rolling hills filling up the interior of the island between its sweeping coasts. While there's plenty of natural beauty, it's balanced by a thriving city scene that will give you a taste of urban life.
