We enjoyed much the calm, friendly atmosphere of the small enclosure of houses around the pool at La Metisse. The hotel is situated north of the center of St Francoise and the whole area is surrounded by a wall. There are some beautiful private houses inside. The rooms of the hotel are few, only seven and they are fresh and...

This is a small "bed and breakfast" with 7 rooms. The owners are awesome, but speak little English. This was not a problem as we both used hand signals and knew enough words of each others language to get by. The accommodations were comfortable. The pool is a little old, but well maintained and adequate. I would definitely recommend staying...

We spent three nights at La Metisse so that we could explore Grand Terre. Sebastien and Fabienne were great hosts, and as helpful as they could be. They serve a wonderful breakfast (delivered to your terrace), and for the three mornings we were there, had a unique assortment of delicious fruits each day, along with very good breads and jams....

We stayed for a long weekend at La Metisse. The room was clean and the owners were really friendly, going out of their way to speak English to us, although we do speak French. The furniture looks a bit dated and the shower is not all that, but the fresh breakfast in the morning makes up for everything. Fresh fruits...

Staff was very welcoming. Room and bathroom was very clean . A very small intimate well relaxed hotel. Pool right outside your room. Which is lovely, because it's always hot in Guadeloupe. Travel tip : when traveling to Guadeloupe learn some basic French words 1st.

We had a wonderful stay with Mr. and Mrs. Grelaud, who were very friendly and welcoming. They really go out of their way to make sure you have a good time. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast was simply superb. Very peaceful setting and perfectly quiet nights. From now on, this is where we stay when in Guadeloupe.

We stayed here for nearly 2 weeks. It's amazing. Fabienne and Sebastien are fantastic hosts. The room was lovely and the breakfast yummy (I know, awful phrase). Our French is appalling but we managed as Fabienne and Sebastien both speak English and have a sense of humour (completely necessary with my poor language skills)! I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Hotel feels more like a B&B - 7 rooms, small, quaint environment. Super relaxing and comfortable. Private patio with each room. Superb breakfast. Sebastien and Fabienne are wonderful, helpful, and charming. Great location to get to beaches and St Francois. Bathrooms could use some updating, but they are clean and work well.
