Make a holiday rental home or property in Guadeloupe your home away from home

The tiny archipelago of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean is known as a scuba diving destination of the highest order, but even if you have no intention of exploring the great blue sea, a holiday rental villa in Guadeloupe offers you a real slice of paradise. The pristine, secluded beaches, fantastic rum and beautiful rocky islets that burst out of the stunning blue waters of the Caribbean will capture your heart completely.

Things to do in Guadeloupe

The golden and white sand beaches of Guadeloupe are a dream. Known as the ‘Emerald Isle’, Guadeloupe’s beaches are backed by lush forests, where flowers of every colour simply add to the already stunning scenery. Whether you are wishing to spend your day stretched out in the sun with a chilled rum cocktail in hand or try your hand at sailing, wind-surfing, surfing, or water skiing, there will be ample opportunities from Guadeloupe accommodation.

The biggest attraction in Guadeloupe is the scuba diving. The island is surrounded by amazing coral reefs that harbour all manner of marine life, and the colours you will see will certainly make your eyes work! There are some excellent scuba diving schools to visit too, should you wish to learn.

The interior of the island is almost as impressive as the coastline. The volcanic centre of Basse-Terre is carved with fantastic hiking trails meandering past beautiful waterfalls, through idyllic fishing villages and past beautiful natural hot springs.

Places to visit on holiday in Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe largely consists of two main islands connected by a long bridge. The larger of the two islands, Basse-Terre, is a mountainous island, carpeted in virgin rainforest. Basse-Terre, despite being the larger of the two islands is actually the more remote and peaceful, and Guadeloupe’s capital, also known as Basse-Terre is a wonderfully peaceful town with quaint cobbled streets and fine old colonial buildings.

The smaller of the two islands, Grande-Terre, is home to the most vibrant resorts and some of the most beautiful beaches in Guadeloupe. This is also where the majority of holiday accommodation in Guadeloupe is found, from hotels to private holiday villas.

Weather in Guadeloupe

The warm Caribbean climate of Guadeloupe makes it a perfect getaway at any time of the year. The driest months fall in spring between February and April, and the wettest between July and November. Daily temperatures are always gloriously warm, with daily peak temperatures of between 25 and 32°C all year round. Evenings are wonderfully balmy too, with temperatures dropping to a glorious 20°C most nights.

Travel to Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe’s strong historical connections with France means that those of us trying to reach a beach house in Guadeloupe must travel to France before catching one of the regular services that arrives into Pointe-a-Pitre International Airport (PTP). Air France provides direct flights to Guadeloupe from Paris Orly (ORY) on a regular basis.

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!
