This place is in a built up area, but feels so quiet and secluded, almost totally screened by palms etc. The bedroom, with its en-suite facilities, is comfortable but nothing special, but the living/dining area is spacious, stylish and appealing with all necessary equipment and the added attraction of a lovely swimming pool, just for us.
There was an excellent supply of food when we arrived, (fruit, bread, eggs, milk, jam, coffee, tea etc)
As noted by others you really need a car here, although it is possible to walk to the hypermarket etc, even that takes more than 20 minutes partly on a busy road with no pavement!
Liliane and Thierry could not have been more helpful, meeting us at the ferry terminal and returning us there in due course. They also organised car hire for us, which included taking us to the airport, and they advised on all sorts of matters in spite of some language problems. The boat ride run by Thierry was memorable, as was the meal in St Luce, where they took us one night.
Strong recommendation for this apartment, which is rather a guest house. Perfect for two guests - I spent there one week together with my daughter. Really nice hosts, they truly care, want you to feel „at home“. Smaller issues are solved immediately. Lots of courtesies, e.g. a fridge filled with juice, water, milk, etc. for the first day.
The guest house is located close to Fort-de-France. You need a car, but this is recommended in Martinique anyhow – the public transports are weak and rentals are cheap, I paid 105 Euro for one week. A big shopping center is nearby, all other destinations (several beaches, city center) no big deal by car.
We stayed at Plaisir de Vacances a Deux for a week. this is a guest house on the property of a larger house. The setting is beautiful, well maintained and modern with a local flair. Liliane and Thierry were wonderful hosts. The kitchen was stocked when we arrived with fresh fruit, eggs, butter, yogurt, coffee, tea and more. The guest house is removed from the main house area giving privacy. However, Liliane and Thiery are always willing to help plan your adventures. We had many evenings with them having drinks by the pool and them sharing many local delicacies with us. The location is great (you do need a car) convenient to everything (Beaches, shopping, city and tourist attractions) but out of all the hustle of the city or hotel areas.
I can't say enough great things about this place and we can't wait to get back!
