A dreamy escape

  • 5 of 5

Such an incredible off the grid experience!

An artistic treehouse ideal for nature lovers and birdwatching. Spent peaceful mornings doing yoga in the terrace or relaxing in the hammock in the evenings. I recommend doing some shopping in town prior to settling in at the treehouse. Saint Francois center and marina are only 10 mins away biking and short car ride.

Vincent and his wife are lovely hosts! The space they have created is simply breathtaking. Vincent accommodated my stay at such a short notice and helped me through all the adventures. Thank you!

Highly recommend this unforgettable experience.

Un cadre enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours dans le bungalow de l'olivier .L'endroit est magique , à 10 minutes en voiture du centre ville de Saint François ,la végétation est luxuriante .Vincent nous a accueilli chaleureusement et donné pleins de conseils de lieux à visiter.Valérie a décoré avec goût et originalité chacun des bungalows . Le jardin fourmille d'objets insolites ,un vélo dans un arbre , un totem ,etc.Les gites sont bien équipés ,bien entretenus .La wifi est capricieuse ,mais quand on est vient à Esprit Caraîbe c'est pour être déconnecté.

Une randonnée vers la pointe des châteaux part du gite .On peut oublier la voiture une demi journée ou plus .

Pour un autre séjour en Guadeloupe sur Grande Terre nous n'hésiterions pas à louer de nouveau ce bungalow ou à le recommander à des amis.

Une belle expérience

  • 5 of 5

Une cabane dans les arbres, c'est intriguant et une belle expérience à St François; tout d'abord un accueil chaleureux puis un cadre verdoyant, et un gîte original et toutefois très confortable. Plus proche de la nature, c'est difficile et tellement agréable. N'hésitez pas à grimper dans l'arbre, vous y passerez un très bon moment.

Très beau séjour atypique

  • 5 of 5

Une belle semaine dans la Cabane dans les arbres. Très calme, à l'abri de tous les regards et bien agencée. Il manque peut-être un ou deux sièges confortables à l'intérieur. L'accueil de Vincent est très chaleureux et même si le wi-fi n'est pas disponible dans la cabane même, sa terrasse à 20m est à disposition pour en profiter. De plus, à cause d'une nuit de grand vent où la toiture s'est soulevée et où il a plu dans le lit ( anecdote de vacances sans conséquence) Vincent nous a remboursé la nuitée. Excellent séjour à refaire.

La cabane dans les arbres est un logement parfait pour les amoureux de la nature!

  • 5 of 5

La cabane est immergé dans le jardin tropical et les arbres, à l'abris des regards, en toute tranquillité. Le logement est plein de charme, rustique mais possède tout l'équipement nécessaire. Situé à proximité de St François, on a accès facilement au différents sites d'intérêt. Vincent est très sympathique, à la fois disponible et discret.
