We spent 8 nights in this wonderful penthouse and really enjoyed it. Located in a new and upcoming area of Fort de France with an amazing view of sea, mountains, and a lovely marina. You will need a car when you stay here but then you have the perfect base when exploring Martinique. The layout of the apartment is brilliant. It is a duplex with two bedrooms both opening onto a large balcony on the lower level, and on the top level you are blown away by the open concept (really open ... there are no windows) offering a gourmet kitchen and a huge living area with a 180-degree unobstructed water view (and marina). It is indoor living taken outside in a fabulous way - it was definitely worth getting up for in the morning.
Our hosts were so nice and very helpful, indeed, and even offered to meet us by the car rental place by the airport and escort us to the apartment. We had their phone number and were able to contact them about almost anything during our stay.
It really was a wonderful experience, and we would love to come back.
What an amazing trip! The property is so lovely and the view is so peaceful. We opened the house up and sat on the Veranda and soaked up the atmosphere. Whether we were having coffee in the morning watching the Cruise ship dock or Having cocktails in the evening, we couldn’t get enough of the view!
The landlord and his family were so helpful with giving us tips of where the local shops, markets and restaurants. This made our journeys out much easier. They speak English very well and of course French.
Being American we were afraid we would have trouble without speaking French but we did very well and almost always someone would interpret if we were stuck.
If you are a Rum enthusiast as we are. Please don’t miss all the Rum distilleries. The beaches are amazing of course so make time to visit them more than once
I do recommend renting an automatic car and not a manual. It is much easier to navigate that way.
We got home and the first thing we said was we wish we were back. We hope to return again soon!!!
