We went for a weekend in Guadeloupe


When the health situation allows it, head for the butterfly island. In the southern Caribbean Sea, two islands (Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre) are linked by a strip of land and form Guadeloupe. Here are our favourite addresses in the territory of Olympic champions Teddy Riner and Enzo Lefort.

Where to sleep? Pierres et vacances Sainte Anne

Located on the seafront at the Pointe du Helleux, the Pierre & Vacances Sainte Anne Village is a complex that appeals to both Guadeloupeans and tourists. For the former, it is the place to be for a good Easter weekend. For the latter, the setting is ideal for a long stay with the added bonus of private access to the beach and a magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea and the islands of Les Saintes.

Where to eat? Le Karacoli

Located on the beach of Grande-Anse in Deshaies, the Karacoli is one of the must-visit restaurants in Guadeloupe. Planteur, rum, marlin, cod acras, pineapple ham, you can enjoy one of the privatizable carbets (wooden shelter originating from the Amerindian cultures) which gives directly on the beach with as a bonus if you relax even more the possibility of taking advantage of the SPA provided by the establishment.

Where to swim? The Crayfish Waterfall

On the road to La Traversée on Basse Terre, in the middle of the rainforest, is the Ecrevisses waterfall. At the bottom of the 10-metre waterfall is a natural pool with fresh water in a green setting. The access is simple, accessible but be careful to choose the time of your visit because it is one of the most frequented places of Guadeloupe.
