A place which deserves its name! Run by a charming small family from the town who fell in love with the place, these simple bungalows have undeniable charm which will be appreciated by those who love nature and discovering new places.
On the slopes of Sainte-Anne, a village 12 miles from Pointe-a-Pitre airport. A hire car is strongly recommended.
One bungalow has been designed specially for disabled people and has its own parking space.
The nearest supermarket, the "lîle Verte", is 5 minutes by car, but is very expensive, as everywhere on the island. Alternatively there is a market with fresh products along the beach nearly every day. Possibility to use a washing machine for 4 euros. Which is not much!
Noisy with hens, cocks and cats who live around the buildings. Not to mention the cows in the field below, who moo in the morning when they are thirsty. But that is part of the charm of these buildings in the heart of nature.
Remember to apply mosquito repellent before dining on the terrace because they really go for you.
Underneath the house of the owners, there is a little table for connecting your computer to WIFI.
Older people with reduced mobility should mention when reserving that they do not wish to be accommodated in the lower bungalows, as the ascent to the pool and the car park is steep.
This little village with its bungalows nestled in natural surroundings has 3 studios sleeping 2, 8 bungalows sleeping 2 to 4 with a room and lounge including a sofa bed, and 2 apartments for 4 to 6 people with two bedrooms and lounge. The latter two can be rented together and have a huge shared terrace. Each bungalow has a sheltered terrace with a kitchenette equipped with oven, hotplates, fridge, crockery, teak table and small barbecue.
This terrace is the heart of the accommodation, but watch out for the mosquitoes and do not leave food lying around or the bin open because the cats will come even for a meagre crumb.
The bathrooms, which are spotlessly clean, have a shower, basin and integrated toilets. Remember to take shampoo and soap! Noisy air conditioning which is better left on during the day because since it is by the terrace it is just as annoying inside as outside.
On the slopes of Sainte-Anne, this small property surrounded by lush vegetation has a dozen wooden bungalows scattered around steep land. The village chiefs have chosen to live in a residence in a large house at the entrance, behind the car park. Next to the property is a pool, which is not very big but is pleasant with a few loungers.
No restaurant, but for a week's stay there is a basket of fruits and a small bottle of rum, and if necessary, everything you could want for breakfast will be waiting for you in your bungalow. A nice little detail. And the punch on arrival is the best way to get into the local ambiance.
No beach because it is inland. The village beach is a 25 minute walk because it is all downhill. Allow at least an hour for the return leg and take a big bottle of water!
