We went to Guadeloupe for good and perhaps strange reasons. Good were that it's France and that it's warm in northern winter. (Strange was to visit the town -- Deshaies -- where Death in Paradise is filmed.) We stayed at La Metisse and in Saint Francois not really knowing what to expect. Guadeloupe is larger than we realized and not... More

Fabienne and Sebastien were super welcoming and helpful. I did a very dumb thing leaving a light on in my rental car on accident. Naturally, the car battery depleted and I couldn't start it the next day. They helped me get in touch with the rental car company to get that taken care of. Très gentils! The fruity Caribbean breakfast... More

The room looked even better in person. My room was very Charming, Clean, Neat, and Cool.The owners of Le Metisse are very attentive and helpful. I would recommend Le Metisse to anyone. i would stay there again. Also Le Metisse is located in a posh neighborhood in Saint-Francois Guadeloupe, so you will be safe. Have a good time #InternationalDiva

La Metisse, as the other reviewers have said, consists of a handful of rooms facing the pool with a bit of a territorial view (you are up the hill past the golf course). The rooms are clean and of a good size - a little dated, but not horribly so. For the Caribbean, this is pretty high end for a... More

A nice quiet place just a delightful 20 minutes walk from St Francois centre. Hardly a hotel as only 7 rooms & no full time reception but very clean & comfortable. I agree with one of other reviewers that a kettle in room would have been useful, so if you are a future guest take your own travel kettle &... More

A quiet place with very helpful owners. We can only recommend others to stay there. The seven small houses are nicely decorated. We had a fine view to the pool and garden and enjoyed the fresh and delicate breakfast at the terrace every morning. We were happy for the help re restaurants and beaches.

La Metisse is a small hotel near the golf course in St Francois, Guadeloupe. There are 7 wooden chalets, tastefully decorated around a small but lovely pool. The welcome is excellent and breakfast is an original choice of local fruits and french croissants. The bathrooms are clean and functional but not luxurious and it would have been nice to have...

Super relaxing atmosphere. Delicious breakfast with exotic fresh fruits set outside by the pool. Our hosts were extremely attentive, friendly and professional and helped us with finding beaches, restaurants and helping to coordinate excursions.

We spent three very enjoyable days at La Metisse. The owners could not have been nicer, our poolside bungalow room was clean and neat. The hotel is small with only 7 units and is very quiet. The pool is very nice. Each unit has an outside poolside table with chairs and lounges. The owners provide a poolside breakfast of coffee,... More
