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.

Places to visit in Saint-Francois, Guadeloupe

One of the islands you may want to visit during a stay in a Saint-Francois self catering holiday home is Basse Terre with its spectacular waterfalls and jungle a complete contrast to the flat, dry Grande Terre. Some of the waterfalls are within ten minutes of parking but some take around three to four hours of hiking but are well worth the trek. 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.

Weather in Saint-Francois, Guadeloupe

At a Saint-Francois holiday home you will be able to expect plenty of dry, warm weather with the archipelago generally enjoying a subtropical climate tempered by trade winds and moderately high humidity.

Cheap flights to Saint-Francois, Guadeloupe

As Saint-Francois holiday home accommodation is in an integrated part of France probably the best way to get there is by Air France from London Heathrow (LHR) to Guadeloupe Pointe-a-Pitre Airport (PTP).

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!

Perfect house for a family who wants a little bit of everything

5 of 5
We spent 10 days at Francois and Maryse's villa had a great time! The house is spacious, well equipped and has an amazing view of the ocean. The owners are always available by phone and very helpful. For example Maryse helped us rent cars to a very good price at a local car rental. Additionally they offer home cooked food to a good price. The house is located in a good area, close to beaches and supermarkets but still "off" with a sense of privacy. We could easily take the car to different parts of the islands, for example we drove to Port Louis with its beautiful beaches, Basse Terre with an amazing nature and "djungle experience", Pointe Châteux and also Sainte Anne (where we really enjoyed the beach). Guadeloupe was definately worth a visit and I really recommend to stay at this villa!
