5 star Luxury on a private Caribbean island
We are three senior travellers who booked accommodation across four of Guadeloupe's islands. We stayed here, on Terre de Bas, in Laetitia's beautiful home for one week in mid february. Throughout the booking process Laetitia made the arrangements easy and was super helpful with all our anxious questions. She stocked the fridge for us and arranged a meal on arrival. She met us at the port with a taxi and brought us fresh bread every morning. She was a wonderful host. But, the greatest joy was her lovely home. The house was superb, Everything was supremely comfortable and spacious. Everything worked as it should. And, above all, the view was mesmerisingly beautiful. Watching boats sailing into the harbour of Terre d'haut will be a cherished memory for many years to come. We had lovely walks on the island, and were welcomed by locals like old friends. Thank you Laetitia. We recommend this property for anyone who cherishes peace and quiet, superb scenery, wonderful walks and wild life. With 5 star comfort!
Beautiful view, peaceful location, warm service from owners of well-equipped & well-maintained villa
Villa Alize is a villa of very high quality, such as found on St. Barts. It sits high on a Terre-de-Bas hillside above Grand Anse and offers a spectacular view of Terre-de-Haut, including Ilet a Cabri, most of the harbor of Bourg des Saintes, and the Pan du Sucre. The highest peak on Terre-de-Haut, Le Chameau, is aligned with the length of the swimming pool. Perfect feng shui! I often rested my head on the pool's edge, admiring Le Chameau and the boat traffic in the channel between the two main islands of the Saintes.
However, what really distinguishes this villa is how the owners provide on-demand yet unobtrusive concierge service. Laetitia delivered baguettes each morning, Alexandre fresh langoustines (spiny lobster) and colas (yellowtail snapper) for afternoon grilling. She is super friendly and helpful, arranging our restaurant reservations and special orders of tourments d'amour (the local pastry). He is a great fisherman, supplying several restaurants in Terre-de-Haut. We ate at one of them and the chef testified that Alexandre supplies the best fish in the islands.
Back to the villa itself: It was spotlessly clean and in good shape. The photos on-line are accurate, if unable to convey its full beauty. Our requests were dealt with promptly. The owners live downstairs and to the side. The way the villa is laid out, we were mostly unaware that they lived close by. Each level is completely private, with its own remote-controlled gate, own driveway and parking, own swimming pool and own wide terrace.The open-air dining area has a huge charcoal grill and marvelous gas-fired Spanish plancha (griddle).
Inside, the villa flows nicely. The kitchen is located between the outdoor dining area and an expansive interior living/dining room. There are 3 separate bedrooms, each with en-suite full bathroom. There's also a small 4th washroom with toilet. All the bedrooms have air conditioning units that work well, as does the interior living/dining room. But other than 2 of the bedrooms, we usually kept doors and windows open for the alize ( or trade wind, from which the villa gets its name).
We had few problems with mosquitos, using the electronic bug-zapper and citronella candles just one evening when the wind died down and there were showers. That's a small price to pay to be open to the outdoors. Flowers fill the gardens around the villa: Bougainvillea, hibiscus, oranges and passion-fruit.
Ca suffit. Our stay was wonderful. Nous reviendrons!
We came to villa Alize with 4 adults and 3 children for a week. This was truly an amazing experience! The villa is even more than beautiful than what you see on the pictures, and the view is breathtaking. Our trip was simply perfect. Beside the amazing location, Laetitia was so helpful during the whole trip, bringing us fresh bread every morning, as well as groceries on demand, and helped us book transportation from the airport. She also made reservations for us, including to her favorite restaurant in Terre de Haut; what a treat. She was always available and attentive. Terre de Bas is a quiet, beautiful island. Highly recommended!
Top Notch! We'd definitely go back!
Villa Alize' is as beautiful as the pictures depict. What isn’t shown in the pictures, however is the extra attention to detail, its owners, Laetitia and Alex add to make your stay that much more amazing. Laetitia brought us fresh made croissants and baguettes every day and if the fish were biting, Alex brought us fresh fish, beautifully filleted and ready for the BBQ.
As Americans on our first trip to Guadeloupe, it was also a huge help that Laetitia arranged our transportation to and from the airport in Pointe-a'-Pitre to Terre-de-Bas.
We found Villa Alize to be as magical as the island it was on, from the well-stocked kitchen, to the carefully appointed furnishings (everything super clean and well maintained) and the lovely veranda where we watched the sun rise, or sipped rum punch at sunset while we overlooked the channel and Terre-de-Haut as we reminisced about the days adventures. We can’t wait to return to this little slice of paradise. Thank you Laetitia and Alex for making our vacation truly memorable! Scott & Piper Smith
Thank you very much for your review and we hope to welcome you again as soon as you could back because you are wonderfull too !
Alex and Laetitia.
Des vacances au paradis!
Nous venons de séjourner 4 jours à la villa Alizé à Terre de bas. Les photos correspondent parfaitement à la beauté du lieu! La maison est magnifique, très bien aménagée, très agréable, avec une vue extra ordinaire dont on ne se lasse pas! Les chambres sont spacieuses, la maison est calme, très bien équipée, la décoration sobre et raffinée, le jardin très bien entretenu... Rien à redire, c'était parfait! Ajoutez à tout cela un très bon accueil, une grande disponibilité ainsi qu'une grande discrétion de Laetitia, la propriétaire, notre séjour s'est parfaitement déroulé. Laetitia est là pour réaliser des courses si besoin, nous apporte le pain et les viennoiseries le matin, nous donne de très bons conseils sur l'ile (sites à visiter, restaurants, traiteur à domicile...). Nous y reviendrons certainement!
Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable dans la magnifique villa de Laetitia, sur ce petit coin totalement préservé et authentique qu'est Terre de Bas. La vue depuis la maison vaut à elle seule le voyage. Sans oublier le confort de l'intérieur, la superbe terrasse et sa grande piscine et la proximité de la plage ! Laetitia s'occupe de tout : depuis le taxi jusqu'aux langoustes. En bref, nous avons tous adoré.
Merci pour vos appréciations qui nous aident à améliorer encore notre accueil et nos services. Nous sommes heureux que votre séjour parmi nous vous ait ravi et nous espérons avoir le plaisir de vous revoir bientôt.
Ocean side: a quiet nap in the shade of coconut palms on the beach, scuba diving with local clubs and snorkelling or diving freely, ballads and sea fishing, winter sports ...
Close to nature: hiking on 'traces' in the heart of the rainforest and along the coast, unusual encounters with iguanas and other species of fauna and local flora, views and exceptional panoramas, relics testifying a rich history for this little island of fishermen that has retained its authenticity ...
And culinary side: Creole or European with fresh local products to restaurants on the island or served at the villa with a private chef.
