  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to Guadeloupe

    Guadeloupe in the Caribbean
    A fascinating island, Guadeloupe is like a tropical version of France: same status as any department in France, same smells of coffee and croissants on the breakfast table, same delicious cuisine and wine. Lying a good 2,000 miles south of Nice, however, what you also get with Guadeloupe is beautiful beaches and stacks of sun – with a laid-back, Caribbean vibe, lush tropical beauty, and vibrant Creole music and food to go with it. Made up of two separate islands, looking from the air like a beautiful emerald butterfly with a mangrove middle, Gaudeloupe offers two distinct Caribbeans for the price of one, with dramatic, steep-sided, rainforest-clad summits on Basse-Terre, and gentler beaches and limestone plateau on Grande-Terre. From biking and climbing to diving and snorkelling, whatever kind of Caribbean you’re after, Guadeloupe has it, with hiking trails in the national park below La Soufriere volano, a marine reserve, beach shacks, surf schools, as well as a string of stunning beach resorts hidden away on both Grande-Terre, Basse-Terre, and the sprinkling of tiny islands around them.

    Local highlights

    Hike to the misty summit of La Soufriere, through a stunning rainforest national park; visit the buzzing beach bar at Ste-Ann; dive or snorkel the Jacques Cousteau marine reserve off Pigeon Island; visit the small off-shore islands, each with its own distinct vibe, including Terre-de-Haut’s low-key sophistication and stunning bone-white Plage Caravelle, La Desiderade’s laid-back beach scene and lovely, undeveloped Marie-Galante; snorkelling off Ilet du Gosier; surfing from October to May in Port-Louis and Le Moule, or fom June to August at Saint-Francois or Petit-Havre; windsurfing off Terre-de-Haut island; Mardi Gras carnival celebrations.

    Getting out and about

    The road system is extremely good by Caribbean standards, making it ideally suited to the independent sightseer. Buses operate frequently from morning to evening, except Sundays, when only main routes operate. Taxis are plentiful as are hire cars. Distances on Basse-Terre can take longer to cover than anticipated because of the hilly terrain. Cycling is also a good option, particularly on flatter Grande-Terre

    Travel arrangements

    There are daily flights to Gaudeloupe with Air France via Paris; flight time from Paris is 8 and a half hours, giving a total flight time, including change in Paris, of about 11 hours.
