The site itself is just beautiful, there is a large variety of plats and trees, it is actually a botanical garden. And then you have the distillery itself and the Clement colonial house that you can both visit. It is a great tour, definitely worth the stop

We spent almost 1/2 a day here - enjoying wandering around the plantation - learning how rum is made - sampling rum. We were having to provision a sailboat for 2 weeks - so we came back with a few bottles (and barrel) of rum for the "crew". It served us well!

Well worth getting away from the beautiful beaches of Martinique for a few hours to visit this historic plantation. We especially liked the pictures of the employees who worked for many years at the plantation, the house, the art exhibition, the gardens... and the rum!

Didn't really see any of the "plantation" but there is lovely vegetation and the original (??) house is like a mini-museum. Very interesting and nice to explore

On a recent cruise we stopped in Martinique. We booked an excursion to Clement House & Plantation. Our guide was a well-informed young lady named Gladwys. The tour encompassed the historic house, gardens, sugar cane and banana fields, and the no-disurum distillery. The motor coach was a modern, air-conditioned bus with an able driver. The excursion was a product of... More

The complete explanation of how to make rum from sugar cane juice - together with the shop to sample the products. They also have a small art gallery and a park for kids - and grown ups - to run around.

this place is relly worth of a visit. It is located in a very large and nic park where you can walk on the grass and see a lot of different tropical plants (all marked with nameplates). The audio guides in English and French are available. On the site you can visit an old rum production facilities and a traditional... More

Habitation Clement is a wonderful old plantation house in good state of repair unlike some on the island. There's an interesting photo gallery showing the numerous politians, artists and musicans who have been guests at the house over the years. The grounds offer some nice shady walks and you can also visit the plantation's rum factory and sample some of... More
