Make a holiday home in Saint-Francois, Guadeloupe your home away from home

Saint-Francois is found at the south eastern tip of Grande Terre, an island in Guadeloupe archipelago in the Caribbean. Self catering accommodation in Saint-Francois enjoys beautiful stretches of sandy beach protected from the currents of the Atlantic Sea by a coral reef.

Things to do in Saint-Francois, Guadeloupe

First and foremost the thing to do while staying in a holiday home in Saint Francois is make for the beach and either relax or join in any of the beach activities. If your closest beach is a little too touristy for you it will be only minutes to somewhere more secluded and idyllic. Take in the scenery of la Pointe des Chateaux where the sand a rock formation has the shape of a castle; from there you can look out over the small islands of La Desirade, Petite Terre, Marie Galante, Les Saintes, La Dominique, as well as have a perfect view of Grande Terre and far away Basse Terre. Plan to visit one of all of them during your stay; Petite Terre is uninhabited and untamed while Saint-Barthelemy is the jet set island.

Among the most popular activities during a stay in a holiday home in Saint-Francois are diving and snorkelling. The colourful assortment of tropical fish is incredible even in water of less than one metre deep so you don’t have to be a good swimmer to enjoy them. If you don’t want to swim, just admire, glass bottom boats are available. The night life here is also lively and colourful with not just the usual bars and clubs but festivals also known as parties in the street; these can go on all night and way into the morning.

Boats leave from the port in Saint-Francois for most of the other islands but as Saint Francois has an airfield it is also possible to take a short flight to nearby Puerto Rica for a different day out.

My friend and I rented this amazing apartment from Nicole in March 2015 and stayed there for two weeks. The communication prior to the arrival was flawless, Nicole has answered all our questions without delay. She has also picked us up from the airport as we didn't plan to rent a car in the first week of our stay. The apartment is very spacious and has everything you may think of: utensils, crockery, towels and more. The marina with plenty of bars and restaurant is a stone throw away from the apartment, also quote big supermarket where you can buy all necessary food should you wish to cater for yourself instead of eating out. Plenty of shops around with the souvenirs, also a pharmacy and small local shops selling some fresh local produce. I would certainly recommend the location and this apartment to everyone and should I travel to Guadeloupe again I will certainly contact Nicole again to rent the apartment. Dominika and Ted
