Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Grande-Terre, Guadaloupe your home away from home

Grande-Terre is one of the Caribbean Islands which makes up Guadaloupe, along with Basse-Terre, Les Saintes and La Desirade. As its name suggests, the islands were a French colony from 1635 and have retained their French influence in the cuisine, language and currency. Grande-Terre has rolling hills, flat plains and beautiful sandy beaches lapped by the warm Caribbean Sea. Inland, the lush mountainous areas have unspoilt tropical scenery and offer plenty of things to see and do from your Grande-Terre holiday rental.

Villa in paradise

5 of 5
Fantastic villa, clean, spacious, well equipped and a view to dream about. We could not have asked for anything more. This is the best villa we have stayed in. The hosts were really special and made every effort to ensure our stay was a holiday to remember. Thank you.

Peaceful, secluded, and quiet

5 of 5
We enjoyed this property very much. It's away from town and located up on the hillside for a great view. It's about a 15 minute drive into Saint-Francois for shopping. There are several nice beaches close by within a 5 minute drive. Jean-Pierre was a kind host who made sure all was good. The villa is well built and comfortable. He takes great care in making sure we were taken care of. Every evening we sat out on the deck looking at the night sky, relaxing in the padded wooden lounge chairs. Thank you Jean-Pierre!
