There are few more evocative destinations than the Caribbean, synonymous with white, palm fringed beaches basking in glorious sunshine lapped by a crystal clear sea. The warm waters of the Caribbean are perfect for sporting activities and the hinterland also has plenty to offer, complemented by a wealth of cultural interest, there are many fascinating French Caribbean attractions, some great Caribbean events and excellent food and drink.
The islands are highly individual and each offers its own tropical blend. Our principal destinations in the Caribbean are Saint Barths and Martinique. The villa accommodation tends to reflect the nature of the island. Saint Barths is very high quality and caters for a clientele which expects style and sophistication, whilst Martinique is rather more relaxed and mirrors the French Creole, rather more laid back style.
Saint Barthelemy, often known as Saint Barths is an absolute gem. As well as being reputed as the most fashionable Caribbean island its’ fantastic, light, sandy beaches are mostly protected from the swell of the ocean by coral reefs. Most have beach bars and or restaurants though on the south coast some of the more remote beaches remain undeveloped. The beach bars in Saint Barths tend to be rather chic and there is even a tendency to dress up rather than down. Saint Barthelemy is very French and the cream of this sophisticated country is reflected in the cuisine and culture on Saint Barths. The island is also very safe. Access is usually via Saint Marteen from Europe and Antigua from the UK.
Martinique is a mountainous, volcanic island with a strong French Creole emphasis. There is plenty to do on the island which is blessed with a good variety of beaches, dark volcanic in the north and idyllic silver sand and coral in the south. Zouk music, creole food combined with fresh croissants in the morning and much more of what makes France so special, make for a heady combination. There are plantations of sugar (producing rum) and bananas, interesting museums, rambling in rainforests, casinos, sailing and cruising. And of course the tropical sun. Access is best via Paris from where there are numerous direct flights. Our Caribbean villas have a swimming pool or are near to the beach, in fact, you can walk to the sea from most of our properties. The standard of a villa is very similar to that found in the top European destinations.
Travelling to the Caribbean invariably involves a long haul flight and in some cases a more than one. There are direct international flights to the Dominican republic. Flights to Martinique (MQ) international airport require a change, operators include KLM and Air France.
The climate is one of the principal attractions of the Caribbean. Tropical sunshine nearly all year round is what attracts so many tourists. It does rain but only for very short periods. Summer temperatures are around 32 degrees C and in the winter you can expect around 19 degrees centigrade.
The Caribbean spans two time zones. Most Caribbean islands are in the Atlantic Standard Time zone but some are in the Eastern Standard Time zone. The majority of the islands in the Caribbean do not pursue a daylight savings time policy.
