Le François self-catering holiday accommodation is set on the Caribbean island of Martinique, on the east coast. The beaches here face the Atlantic, creating perfect conditions for an array of water sports, while the scenery is nothing short of spectacular and there is no lack of things to see and do close by.
Le François holiday rentals are set in one of the best locations on the island for water sports. Available via a number of companies close by are sports like wind-surfing and kite-surfing, with shops offering equipment hire and lessons. Although this part of Martinique is noted for its ocean breezes – which make kite-surfing and wind-surfing so popular – the waters off Le François tend to be calm, as they’re sheltered by a series of small islands. At Baignoire de Josephine, which can be reached by boat, there’s a large expanse of clear, shallow water protected by coral reef. During your holiday at Le François self-catering apartments you’ll be able to hire equipment for a wide range of other water-based activities, with sailing, canoeing and kayaking all available. Alternatively you could just follow the coast by road and experience a part of the island that is wonderfully varied, with long white sandy beaches, coves, mangrove forest and cliffs. On land there’s just as much to keep the whole family entertained – the towns on the island are delightfully picturesque, while the verdant nature can be explored via guided walks and horseback rides. Off-road tours are a fun way to experience Martinique’s considerable beauty. And if you’d like a round of golf then the nearest course is around half an hour away to the west, at Les Trois Ilets.
On such a compact island, all of Martinique’s major attractions are within an easy drive of holiday accommodation in Le François. Les Trois Ilets is well worth the short drive, with a number of museums found here, relating to Martinique’s historic industries of Sugarcane, and Coffee and Cocoa cultivation.
Although temperatures are consistent, there are two main seasons on the island around Le François self-catering villas. The wet season occurs from June to November, and results in generally damper weather, with higher humidity. The rest of the year is drier, if also a little cooler.
