“Beautiful location, minutes from the Beach”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent 10 wonderful days at L'Habitation Anse Mancenillier with Brigitte and Pierre as our hosts. The garden is superb and the pool very welcome. The rooms are comfortable and air conditioned. Saint Francois is near-by where you can find everything needed to make your meals in the well - equiped kitchen. There is lots to see and do in the area and beaches everywhere. A very nice beach is a 3 minute walk from the house. Brigitte and Pierre are very welcoming and helpful yet discrete. We highly recommend coming to Saint Francois and staying here.

“The warmth and generosity of Brigitte and Pierre”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Pierre and Brigitte are the nicest hosts you can dream of. We have been welcomed warmly and the « Habitation » was spotless. Everything you need for a « petit-déjeuner » was already in the refrigerator, including a star fruit jam jar cooked by Brigitte herself. During the last week of our stay, Brigitte kindly invited us for a fine “apéro” at her superb home (which is located right behind the “Habitation”) and at our departure, we were offered a small local gift. These people are really charming!

The pictures appearing on advertising are absolutely true. The rooms are as shown, and so are the pool, the kitchen and above all, the magnificent tropical garden.

We encountered a few small issues: the dishwasher broke down for a week, the spot that lights the pool has burnt and the DVD player was defective. But Pierre and Brigitte have worked hard so as to have those problems fixed as soon as they could. Also, an issue regarding the availability of the Wi-Fi, which was shut down at 8h30 p.m. on the first evening for some reason, has been quickly resolved after a short discussion with Pierre.

The beach is almost at your doorstep and in this part of the island, the sea is calm enough for your diving quietly over a wonderul coral reef only a hundred feet away.

Saint-François, which could be reached by foot, is a typical Caribbean town. You will find here everything you need for preparing a meal at the « Habitation » or, should you prefer going out for dinner, you will find a full array of restaurants, some of them offering local food and some others, fine French or Caribbean cuisine. Also, there is a very picturesque market, called La Rotonde, right in the middle of the town, where you can find all sorts of drinks, sauces, local food, fresh local fruits and vegetables and local handicrafts.

And more important: Guadeloupians are very welcoming and friendly people.

Now, let’s talk about the downsides, even if they are not attributable to Pierre and Brigitte in any way whatsoever. First, Pierre and Brigitte’s immediate neighbour on the west side of the property owns a sort of menagerie consisting of a cow, a few goats, hens and more important, a couple of cocks… The crowing of the cock at 5:30 – 5:45 a.m. is something you have to experience once in your life. But not on each and every morning when you are on vacation! And earplugs won’t help much, since the crowing is very powerful and unceasing… In addition, as you can imagine, the other animals would immediately join in the concert… Note that this issue could less bother people with you who are located on the east side of the “Habitation”. While this is something that could make your stay a little more bucolic (and this certainly occurs in other smaller towns all over the island), you should be aware of this.

Secondly, and more important, there is a small airport at the southwest of Pierre and Brigitte’s place. Although small, this airport is quite busy, especially during the weekend. Yet, you should know that the end of the runway is at around 1,200 feet from the “Habitation”, which means that when the aircrafts are overhead, they are in their climbing phase with their engine at full throttle. And you not only see small Cessna out there, but also larger aircrafts like Beechcraft and Cherokee and small helicopters. Of course, if you leave early in the morning for visiting the island (and there are so many wonderful places to visit), this is of no concern. But if you choose to have a day of rest at the “Habitation” and relax around the pool (after all, this is the reason why you elected to stay in a place like the “Habitation”), well, you know what to expect…

The rating of 4/5 we give is based on Pierre and Brigitte's own merit. If we had to make them accountable for the the downsides we have described, the score would have been 3/5.

In conclusion, we strongly recommend the “Habitation de l’Anse Mancenillier” to those who are not intimidated by the two above-described downsides. To the others, we recommend as strongly to go elsewhere.

“....a slice of heaven”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We spent our holidays in this beautiful location and were completely satisfied.
Photos on Tripadvisor are absolutely realistic…. It is very very nice and in a beautiful tropical garden.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owners, Brigitte e Pierre…… kind, friendly and hospitable they made us feel like home.
Although the Habitation was ready for us late in the afternoon, we could leave our bags in the morning without any problem.
We checked in the evening perfectly, they gave us all the information to live in their home, useful tips on the surroundings ...... and left anything we need to have breakfast the next day in addition to another kind local gift (what a nice touch, Brigitte!)

The house is easily accessible by car from the airport (about 40 min) following signs to Pointe des Chateaux
It is located in a quiet area of ​​Saint Francois and just 50 mt walk from the beautiful beach Anse du Mencellinier.
With a nice walk through a path along the golf course, you can also reach the city of Saint Francois with its shops, fish market, port and restaurants.
15 minutes by car and you get to Sainte Anne with its incredible beaches and typical market.
There are 3 bedrooms with air conditioning and private bathroom; the outdoor kitchen equipped with everything you need (oven, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher ..); the outdoor veranda where it was wonderful to have breakfast or dinner overlooking the pool .... Evenings spent under the stars in this tropical garden are a wonderful memory.
The swimming pool is furnished with sunbed for everyone and barbecue .... perfect to grill our fish & lobsters in joy and fun!

If you are looking for a good accommodation in Guadeloupe, the Habitation of Brigitte and Pierre is perfect ... highly recommended !
