Beautiful home, very enjoyable old distillery equipment preserved from earlier era - rum is now made nearby. Best part of stop is tasting room - superb examples of very high quality rums. A very nice stop. Well worth the drive.

The Clement Habitation appears to be one of the premier attractions on Martinique. In reality it is simply another rum distillery but does have a manor house which is partially furnished. We went primarily to see the house which took less than ten minutes. The grounds are well maintained but we expected to experience how life was lived during the... More

This wasn't our first choice of tour visits so really didn't have specific expectations but we were pleasantly surprised! The grounds are beautiful and the history of the place is really interesting. We had never visited a distillery before so we took the time to listen and read the information signs. We learned a lot even if we didn't turn... More

We spent a good couple of hours here, the plantation was the best prepared for international visitors than anywhere else on the island. You can take a self guided audio tour in your language and head out into the gardens and then around the buildings and the plantation houses. The main house is very nice and really gives a feeling...

Though all the signs are only in French! Audio guide in multiple languages- tough did not work in a small part of the exhibit in the old distillery. I visited with my 2 parents (70's), there are some steps but mostly lots of flat pathways and grassy areas. We did see an adult man in a wheelchair getting around, so... More

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!
