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.

                                                              Sublime views, spotlessly clean, strategic

                                                              My wife and I, my 2 young children and my mother in law stayed 2 weeks for our Easter holidays. On arrival, we were blown away by the stunning views from the balcony, and the general luxury of the house. I cannot emphasise enough how great this house is. The air conditioning throughout means a good nights sleep, and the pool with sea view make you feel like you are in a 5* hotel. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and the beds are very comfortable and large. The house is perfectly placed for amenities and various beaches. Daniel (the owner) was also extremely helpful and made the experience more personal. Cannot recommend enough, great find!
