Great location, very educational and nice store at the end of the tour where you can taste all their rhum (and buy some while you're there as it's cheaper than at the duty free store at the airport).

It's hard to remember what I expected here because this place exceeded any expectations I had to begin with. The grounds are magnificent, and the recorded audio guides give a lot of detail on the different types of palms, sugar canes...so much so we ended up not turning on the guide after a while or we would have been there...

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.

My wife and I visisted here as part of tour of the Island of Martinique, off the Wind Surf, while on a cruise in the Caribbean. The Island of Martinique is quite lovely and the Habitation Clement is a visual and historical treat! We toured on a bright, sunshine filled day which made the entire gournds sparkle!
