We had an incredible stay at Habitation Cafeiere Samana Beausejour. Didier & Etienne have created a truly magical residence and would highly recommend it for anyone looking to explore Basse Terre. The residence has a authentic family atmosphere. Breakfast was a great start to day especially with the largest tea collection we have ever seen! Didier and Etienne were kind enough to speak english for us but helped us to practice our french where we could. We stayed in The Cottage which had great facilities and felt very private. The plunge pool was great for cooling off and we also used the well equipped outdoor kitchen to cook some fish we build at the local market. The ain infinity pool is spectacular and a great place to watch the sunset. The evening meals felt like meals with old friends and really made are stay feel special. Both Didier and Etienne are skill chefs and we would highly recommend eating at the residence on the nights that they are cooking. We loved their pets who were always pleased to see us. The roads around the island are challenging due to the mountainous terrain and the road up to the residence is no exception. Be sure to hire a powerful car as you may struggle to climb the driveway in a low horsepower compact car.

So in summary we loved our stay and plan to return as soon as possible.

Habitation Cafeiere Samana Beausejour was for us an incredible experience. Didier and Etienne had only one concern from the beginning: our vacation should be unique!

Their paradise is a little hidden in the slopes of the west coast of Basse-Terre with a magnificent view of the Caribbean, but is easily accessible by rental car. The welcome by the two hosts and their four-legged friend was extremely warm, so you immediately feel at home in this hidden jewel.

The entire complex is very tastefully designed and extremely well maintained. A highlight is the infinity pool, which immediately invites you to swim and dream. Didier and Etienne's bond with this paradise is evident in their loving care of the property. History, nature and art combine here to create an authenticity we have rarely experienced before. Welcome to the Caribbean, welcome to Guadeloupe!

There are several accommodations of different sizes distributed on the property. All are very furnished with attention to detail and form a harmonious unit with the property and the island. We enjoyed every morning to look from the room over the property to the sea. There wasn’t absolutely anything missing!

Didier and Etienne are perfect hosts. Even before we arrived, they kept giving us recommendations for a great vacation and every morning at breakfast there were new tips for the day, which we gladly accepted due to the special situation that prevailed during our stay on the island. We were thus able to experience the versatility of Basse-Terre and returned home full of beautiful memories. Spending a day at the beach, snorkeling and diving in the Caribbean, hiking in the tropical forest to waterfalls or on the still active volcano, bathing in thermal springs and much more can be easily done while staying at this accommodation.

Didier's and Etienne's tips were always spot on, even when it came to restaurant recommendations. But for that matter, Table d'Hôtes must not to be missed! The combination of traditional and local cuisine and the hospitality shown by Didier and Etienne were one of a kind.

Thanks Didier and Etienne for the wonderful days we had at Habitation Cafeiere Samana Beausejour! A must for anyone looking for a perfect individual vacation!

We stayed 11 nights with Didier and Etienne and enjoyed every minute.

The room was spotless clean, the high quality decoration is chosen with lots of love and you can see their eye for detail everywhere on the estate.

The garden is an oasis of calm and the views of the ocean by the invinity pool are breath taking, especially (but not only) at sundown.

In the evenings we enjoyed the Table d’hôte and the quality and the taste of the dishes were superb.

Didier and Etienne make you feel like staying with friends, they have given us always good recommendations for restaurants, beaches, excursions....

If you are looking for a high quality, boutique lifestyle place in Guadeloupe, you will fall in love with la Habitation Cafeiere Samana Beau sejour.

Thanks for the great time!

I tried to write this in French, but my computer doesn't insert accents, so the spell check would not let me post. Habitation Semana is a true find. Didier and Etienne are very warm, gracious hosts, and the property is gorgeous and very tranquil. My room was upstairs with a very large covered porch. It was sparkling new and sparkling clean. Perhaps one of the best things is Didier's wonderful taste in music; always interesting jazz playing, which just adds to the tranquility of the setting and the grounds. And the food is great, too. Didier made a wonderful fish stew for dinner, and they serve home made jam at breakfast, made mostly from fruit grown on the property. I recommend it highly! Also, it's fun just getting there, as the road is a virtually a vertical climb to about 1000 feet.

We had a fabulous stay at L'Habitation Cafeiere in the Cottage. We stayed in "Le Cottage" which is apart from the other buildings providing great privacy. The property's setting is magnificent...the photos do not do it justice with incredible views of the ocean and mountains. Furthermore, the location in Pointe Noire is excellent for exploring Basse Terre - right in the middle of the western coast and also relatively convenient to making trips to Grande Terre. Didier and Etienne are excellent hosts - they have helpful lists of local recommendations. Their homecooked meals are also excellent and provide a great chance to chat with the hosts and other guests.

This property is a dream come true. Spectacular views, infinity pool, tastefully decorated rooms, a tropical and lush garden,... Didier and Etienne make great hosts and serve a nice breakfast and dinner. We had the suite and loved the jacuzzi on the terrace. Samana is located ideally to explore the whole west coast with its amazing beaches. Make sure to get home in time to enjoy the sunset from the pool...

Nestled in the mountains, Habitation Cafeiere Samana Beausejour is a rare gem. The views are stunning, overlooking both the mountains and sea. The decor is artful and well balanced with the breathtaking natural beauty of the property and gardens. Honestly, one of the best breakfasts I have had anywhere. Etienne and Didier are warm and accommodating, quick to provide their guests with any request. We opted for the dinner option 3 times since the selection of wine and food was better than the local restaurants. The rooms have all the amenities you need and the bed was very comfortable. Magical and Charming!

My partner and I stayed the last 5 days of our 3 week trip at the French Antilles at this great accommod.. This was definitely the best room. Didier and Etienne are very warm and welcoming hosts. The property and the room was perfect. The view from the pool is amazing. Although our room had a perfect and new kitchen. We did not really eat there once, since the breakfast was just perfect with fresh fruits from there. Didier ist an excellent cook, so just eat there and be amased!

We so enjoyed our visit. Not only are the grounds beautiful but Didier and Etienne were gracious hosts who attended to our every need—breakfast, dinner reservations in town, recommendations, a bucket for champagne—they really made the visit into a 5 star trip. They also are wonderful cooks with meals just as good or better than you can get in local restaurants. The grounds are beautiful and they have a wonderful eye. The location is secluded but also central to local villages, beaches and the national park. A wonderful base camp. We will return and recommend to all our friends.

This place is simply beautiful, and the owners thought of every detail. Thumbs up for the ecologically conscious approach. Very lovable animal housemates, as well :) We also enjoyed the fact to have English-spoken hosts, who took the time to show us around the garden and whose table d’hôte was simple and delicious.
