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.

Things to Do in Grande-Terre, Guadaloupe

Grande-Terre was described as a “divers’ paradise” by the eminent Jacques Cousteau and the islands are listed as one of the top 10 diving sites in the world. The white sandy beaches provide the perfect place to sunbathe, walk along the water’s edge, snorkel, windsurf or go jet skiing. Visitors can explore the rainforest and visit the waterfalls in the island’s lush green jungle. Guadaloupe offers fine shopping for French imports such as perfume, wine and Lalique crystal as well as local goods such as straw hats and handmade lace. At the end of the day there are plenty of restaurants, bars and nightlife within easy reach of your Grande-Terre holiday villa. Visitors can enjoy the exotic cocktails, local music and dancing, including the “Biguine”, the local dance which shows off the ornate Creole costumes which are still worn.

                                                                                                      Villa Camille is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday in Guadeloupe. Nicole, the host, is delightful (and very discreet) and has thought of absolutely everything that you could possibly want or need in a self-catering villa (from herbs/spices and oils to sharp knives, clingfilm/foil, tea towels, etc.). She greets you on arrival, leaving you some food (and beer and rum!) for an evening meal and breakfast, so you don't have to go out that first evening. Having a swim before breakfast, looking out towards the sea, is a wonderful indulgence. The pool is beautiful and if you stay and stare at the foliage surrounding it, you will be rewarded with sightings of humming birds. Bananaquits (or sugar birds as the French call them) come often for food on the terrace (as does the occasional giant toad!). And Charlotte, the resident cat, is very friendly and often already ensconced on a chair when you pull up the shutters in the morning, or she's ready to take your place if you should be foolish enough to leave it! We really can't recommend this place highly enough. It's in a gated community so you feel safe (Guadeloupe feels safe anyway), you have your own entrance and are completely private. The villa overlooks the sea and has its own beautiful well-tended tropical garden. In 5 mins you can walk down a path to an open area to beaches or have a lovely cliff top walk, passing cows on the way. The villa has CDs and a variety of books (mostly French). There's aircon in the bedrooms, a fan in the lounge & comfy seats. A car is needed to get around, but St Francois is only about 15 mins drive away and has a market, marina, shops and a great boulangerie which sells fantastic bread. It's also a great place to see what the fishermen have brought back. And there are supermarkets all around. We didn't like St Anne so much - too much traffic and quite difficult to park, although the beach did look good, and it does have a 'cafe' - Gelato - which sells the best ice-cream and Italian coffee (it's run by an Italian). We visited Pointe a Pitre and went to the Memorial Acte museum which is worth a trip if you want to find out more about the history of slavery. And we did a day trip to Deshaies (to see the locations for Death in Paradise TV show) in Basse Terre, taking in the 'Ecrevisses waterfall' and the Botanic Gardens (good lunch) en route. So, a fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa, made all the more special by Nicole's attention to detail. Thanks, Nicole!
