Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not much remains of the original establishment, the main house having been completely rebuilt, but it's definitely worth a detour as there is an interesting exhibition and a largely intact windmil minus most of the machuinery.

Habitation Roussel - Trianon was a huge place. They made sugar canes in the 17th century.

The windmill was the most beautiful windmill.

Most of the walls are still standing.

There are so many information on this place. These people were rich!

There was a chimney as well.

The owners had their home on the property.

There were a lot of pictures of the past as well.

Worthwhile to see!

Always a great place for exploration and self-guided learning. Information panels relating to the slave trade and route here on Marie-Galante greet you at the entrance to the site. We came just before sunset, and shared the entire location with only 4 other people, watching the golden rays of sunlight washing over the ruins of the old sugar refinery. Mind the signs indicating no entry - these are for everyone's safety, as the overgrowth inside the refinery may be hiding underground holes, or rusted-out tanks, and you DON'T want to fall into one of them. There is no gate to close off the entrance, so no real opening hours, though I wouldn't recommend visiting past sunset. There are also no services here, no washrooms or shops, but there is no fee for entry, either. Just enjoy the free exploration!

Worth looking at and another part of the 'Slave route' in Guadeloupe and Marie Galante. Like many of these sites they have deteriorated.

Habitation Roussel-Trianon is an old sugar refinery and plantation, that had been maintained for the purpose of teaching about slavery on the island. The site is well-preserved and informative, but free-range in respect to visiting the area. There is a map and information at the entrance, next to the "parking" area, and I suggest you snap a picture of the map for reference later on, as there is no other information else on the site. Some locations here were more fenced off, due to the fact that vegetation had since grown over the old tanks in the factory, obstructing them from sight, but remaining very dangerous as you could fall into one.Otherwise, it's pretty much a free-for-all explorable complex, wide open and virtually free of anyone else. There is little to no shade, so sunscreen is a must, and there are no other facilities on site, such as food and washrooms, but I wouldn't spend all day visiting, either. It's a nice stop en route to something else.
