My family spent five nights in December at the little house. It was a wonderful base for exploring Grand-Terre. The house itself is very comfortable. There are two main rooms in the house, in addition to a bathroom and kitchen. We ate our meals on the covered terrace outside. It is a very short walk from the house to the water, all on the property of the owner's family. The water is wonderful for snorkeling, shallow and and filled with many small fish. You can see Marie Galante, and on clear days even Les Saintes and Dominica. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. She even brought us a King's Cake! Her sister lives in another house on the property, and speaks English well.
Start to finish, our entire experience was phenomenal! Sophie & her family make you feel as if you're staying at a relatives home. A home that comes with incredible views, a personal hot tub and a warm welcome. The house sits atop a steep hill where mountains are your neighbors (it might surprise you initially driving up, don't be frightened) and you really can't ask for a better location. It's just 20 minutes from the Pointe-a-Pitre airport, 10 minutes to the shops & beaches of Le Gosier and 20 minutes to St Anne.
Guadeloupe is certainly a destination you will want to rent a car. It does not have many walkable roads and will take you 45 minutes to an hour walking to get places that are 10 minutes driving. We did not have a vehicle. Sophie noticed and went above & beyond for us, taking time out of her own personal schedule to accommodate us with drop off's to several different destinations. She doesn't know how much her generosity was appreciated.
If you want to indulge in the perfect island getaway perched in the hills, then this is the perfect homeaway for you. Picturesque, secluded, romantic and beautiful are just a few words to describe this stellar property.
