Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere, Vieux-Habitants

(4.4/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
Get to know the inner workings of a coffee plantation at Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere. Founded in the 17th century, the plantation boasts a long history of producing fine crops in the area. Coffee is not the only product grown here, however. Take a tour and identify trees like cocoa, banana, bread fruit, coconut, cinnamon, and vanilla. Learn about the hard work that goes into growing and harvesting the products, and if you choose a tasting tour, sample the produce of the plantation. Be careful when visiting, as the road is narrow, steep, and quite bumpy. Also be aware that the plantation only offers tours in French.

  • The area of the Griveliere, abandoned for a long time was picked by the community and a lot of money spent on its restoration. It's not over, but the current result is exciting, thanks to the enthusiasm of workers engaged in particularly the guide Annick who received us. Thanks to her, we realized the difficulty to operate coffee plantations in an environment that is as varied and hardness of the work accomplished. The visit she is superb, in an exuberant vegetation. It must be earned with 15 minutes of an access road rather complicated.

  • The Griveliere is managed by an association which has as goal to save culture and harvest coffee in Guadeloupe. Well worth a visit. Especially with our guide, girl coffee producer, which allowed us to begin to understand the culture of the coffee! She gave us real-life stories that allow to enter the heart of the matter. Bravo and thanks Yannick! You also learn to recognize tropical plants: trees to bread, mangosteens, jacques, mango, cocoa... pod and many others that I didn't get the name but allowing benefits for the body. Including one, which has a smell of cilantro but that brings the amount of iron in the body. The cottages will allow to live closer to the projects of this wonderful association. Actually the road is steep. The Horn is mandatory... Do not take in case of heavy rains.

  • It is a nice, ventilated and great for people looking for freshness. The guide is a bit fast in his explanations but accurate and concise. A little visit at no charge but good. However, housing is not easily accessible by car, not recommended for people with difficulties to walk and the main house is not furnished. Coffee is served at the end of visit, and of course, a small passage by the shop. The field is part of a plan of action. Rooms are planned but under construction for 2012, and sometimes electricity to its flaws so you will be lulled by the gentle sound of the generator.

  • Too well the small road to go there... We do not forget it very very picturesque... But avoid the restaurant very slow and not great
