We enjoyed staying with the mythical Tante Arlette, and her charming daughter, in this house built a hundred years ago by Tante Arlette's father.
Nice little village in the quiet North of the island, we initially planned this trip to hike the "famous" trail between Grand Rivière & Le Prêcheur, but (knew before we arrived)it is closed; but this should not stop you going, there is the wonderful "La Crabière" walk in Le Lorrain (a nice day trip where you can visit the JM Rhum distillery) and others along the coast. And Grand Rivière itself where you can swim (the sea is lovely and warm) and then just take some time to admire the sunset and watch darkness fall over the sea, it is so peaceful
The hotel restaurant is good, and we had the menu of the day in the evening, but you can of course ask for something else. Breakfast was served on the terrace in the morning and was ok.
The room was nicely decorated (we were in a new room), the bed comfortable, but we would have preferred to stay in one of the "old" rooms as they have a (shared) terrace overlooking the street.
Special mention for the jacuzzi on the roof, that is also a very pleasurable experience especially when it is dark.
And second special mention to all the staff who were friendly and efficientMore
