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.

    We did the tour with Yannick. This guide is really involved and passionate about his trade. She makes you discover the place and nature that surrounds it. coffee, cacao trees, banana trees, and various medicinal plants... the tour is worth the trip.

    Beautiful site in the mountains where we find the story of a House. We regret that after a long road, is there no possibility of free visit. Wait for the next departure.

    Worth visiting simply for the views. Absolutely beautiful location, and the road up is an adventure in and of itself

    A moment of fullness in harmony with nature and the history of Guadeloupe. Friendly guides familiar with the topic and with practice, it feels good. We still have to eat there in his host's table and we will sign a 5th star. Congratulations to all. See you soon

    We had a great guide, both for his kindness and his calm for the explanations he has given us. It has not undergone a course of history or science, but we were invited to perceive and feel the nature, what she saw and what she offers. The coffee is much better since...
