Domaine de l'Habitation la Griveliere, Vieux-Habitants

#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Basse-Terre Island
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.

  • Very nice ride and discovery at the heart of the rainforest through explanations and humor of Sophie. Watch out for the slippery stones in wet weather!

  • We visit this property were received by a very charming and very bubbly person (aka Gisele Sophie). She was our guide and she regaled us throughout the visit.

  • The attraction of the place starts with a beautiful road amount toward the heart of the island in the middle of the lush vegetation. The field looks to be at the end of the world and the plants of coffee and cocoa are scattered through the surrounding forest. Quiet and well commented, visit a true pleasure.
