“A delightful getaway in Guadeloupe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2011

If you're among the myriad Americans who love France, the French language, and French food, we strongly encourage you to consider Guadeloupe and the lovely Hostellerie des Chateaux as a winter getaway. You'll be in a tiny minority -- Guadeloupe's tourists are overwhelmingly European -- but you'll enjoy glorious uncrowded beaches, gorgeous rainforest, and some of the best food in the Caribbean. Hostellerie des Chateaux is a small (eight units) complex, east of St-François and just west of the tip of the island. For 110 euros a night, we got a spacious bungalow with a kitchenette and private terrace, excellent breakfasts (the homemade yogurt flecked with local vanilla bean was a real treat), and access to a superb outdoor restaurant/bar and beautiful large swimming pool. After exploring the towns, beaches, and rainforests of Guadeloupe all day, it was heavenly to return to this tropical French enclave. The owner of Hostellerie des Chateaux, Michel, is a welcoming, knowledgeable Swiss host who speaks excellent English (but indulged our fractured French because we wanted to practice it). If you want to get away from all-inclusive resorts and cruise-ship hordes, Hostellerie des Chateaux is for you. Vive la différence!

Stayed February 2011, traveled as a couple

As the first Danish/Dutch family ever to stay at Hostellerie des Chateaux, we hope many Danes will follow :-). This is a great place - with a great manager, Michel. We stayed for almost one week and enjoyed the combination of swimming pool and swimming in the sea. My children loved the pool and also the breakfast was nice. As people who speak French "un peu" it was nice to be able to speak English and receive information in English. The cook is also great! After weeks with seafood, we loved the entrecôte - try it. Everything is very clean and also the library is filled with books - most though in French. Til danskerne: Besøg dette sted - det er rigtig dejligt! Voor Nederlanders: Dit is een perfekte plek om te relaxen! We hope to return again!

The Hostellerie is superb. Very laid-back. Clever use of space in the rooms. Nice garden & pool-side. Covered deck for breakfast is good too. And the evening meals vfine. But the sum is greater than the parts as it is wel thought out. Long may it continue. Michel is an excellent host.
