Where to rent a Villa in Guadeloupe?

The ideal situation


Many of you ask yourself the question " where to rent a villa in Guadeloupe ?".

He you  must all first choose between Basse Terre and Grande Terre which are the two wings of the Guadeloupean butterflies.
These two territories are completely different, and do not meet at any point except that they are surrounded by water. 

Big land

Grande Terre is the upper part of Guadeloupe, it is rather flat and the climate there is  much drier and the vegetation is less dense. On the relief side you will find large white sand beaches and also a more rocky side.  with very cut sides spanking thoughts of Brittany.
This part of the island is also more suitable for mass tourism, so you will find most of the hotel complexes there. 

The sites to be favored on Grande Terre

- The Pointe-des-Châteaux 
- Morne-à-l'Eau cemetery, with its black and white checkered vaults
- The night market of Saint-Anne
- The ACT Memorial
- The international golf course of Saint-François, 18 holes.
- The Pointe de la Grande Vigie and the Porte d'Enfer, for its vertiginous cliffs and breathtaking views 
– Caravelle Saint-Anne Beach
– Beach of Bourg de Sainte-Anne
– Datcha beach in Le Gosier
– Wilder Saint Felix beach
– The beaches of Pointe des Châteaux and Anse à la Gourde
– Plage des raisins clairs in Saint François
- The very beautiful beach of Anse de Souffleur in Port-Louis

Basse Terre is the lower part of Guadeloupe, it is rather hilly and the climate there is  much more tropical and the vegetation is lush. On the relief side you will find  a mountain range (former volcanoes) with Soufrière as its highest point. On the north western part there are large white sand beaches like Grande Anse  and the further south you go, the smaller the beaches and the darker sand or pebbles.
This part of the island is also more suitable for "nature" tourism , so you will find there the possibility of doing a multitude of hikes , swimming in waterfalls , a 17,000 ha tropical forest managed by the National Park , the Cousteau reserve and its pigeon islands ideal for swimming and snorkeling in a natural aquarium.

The best sites on Basse Terre

- The National Park of Guadeloupe, with  the mamelles park is its countless hiking trails
- the Pigeon Islands and the Cousteau reserve in Bouillante, a life-size aquarium
- the Carbet Falls from Capesterre
- The Acomat jump near Pointe Noire

The island of Guadeloupe is the ideal place to spend holidays, it is true that we often hesitate between Grande Terre and Basse Terre, not to mention all the islands like Sainte Marie, Saint François, Le Gosier, Marie Galante or Saintes . In addition, you have to find a rental car, find accommodation during your stay, in an apartment, a villa or a gite, all close to the beaches. Preferably, accommodation rentals must have at least 3 bedrooms, a swimming pool in order to be able to take a family trip. In order to have a competitive price for a vacation rental on the island of Guadeloupe, it is better to stay on basse terre rather than on grande terre. In addition, the beaches of Sainte Anne and Saint François are overcrowded compared to the beaches of Basse Terre. Our beautiful island of Guadeloupe is conducive to rentals, with a car and apartment located in the middle of the island, it will be easier to visit accommodation and apartment rentals with bedrooms and swimming pools. Generally rentals on the island of Guadeloupe are simpler and at better prices on Basse Terre, to stay during the holidays and take a rental car during the stay, it is better to avoid Pointe à Pitre and prefer Marie Galante.

In summary

We can say that the two parts of Guadeloupe have their attractions, and that it is only a matter of taste ...
As a recommendation, I think that choosing a central position would make it possible to visit both parts in a more practical way.  Our favorite is  in the small village of Deshaies  located in the upper part of Basse Terre. This small fishing village and also the filming location of the series "Murder in Paradise"  is near the most beautiful beaches of Basse Terre and Guadeloupe. You will be able to combine the useful with the pleasant... :-)
