We welcome you in our cottages and bungalows facing the Cousteau Marine Park in Guadeloupe. Authentic holidays in a familial structure. Highly motivated to preserve and act for the environment we obtained the trustmark of the National Park of Guadeloupe in 2013, and have applied for the Green Key certification which is expected for early 2017.

A great location to start exploring the “Basse-Terre” region, hike and discover its magnificent underwater.  “A good value for money” said our clients (self catering basis), check our guestbook.

A typical day in the “Basse-Terre” region

Comfortably installed in one of our chalets located in the middle of a tropical garden, you will enjoy breakfast on your private terrace, watching the hummingbirds. During the day, our partners will guide you underwater through the magnificent “Cousteau marine park”. You can also discover the tropical forest, climb the “Soufrière” volcano, meet the whales or visit the neighboring islands. Late afternoon, you will enjoy the swimming pool before sipping a ti’punch and have dinner in a typical “Creole” restaurant close by.
