  • At the end of a road that ended up not to climb, we reach the habitants field. Joel welcomes us and we did the tour. It is super passionate about its operation and explained very well to the children that he in fact participate! We loved this tour focused on coffee and vanilla. The banana being there than to do the shading. Do not hesitate to go there you won't regret.

  • Hugs embracing too well: to treat three crops (coffee, vanilla and banana) in 1 h 15, it is a inevitable shortcuts. The emphasis is put on the coffee and it's good because it was the main reason for our visit. For what is the culture of banana, prefer a banana plantation (the Grand Café plantation for example). Visit a bit expensive for children too old for child fare but too young for coffee tasting. The score of 4 is justified for the coffee tour part and the passion of our guide.

  • A place of total disorientation. The lodge was comfortable and well equipped. a beautiful pool. On-site, a superb guided tour on the production of coffee, vanilla and cocoa made by the owner. For coffee lovers, it's a pleasure to get up in the morning and smell the coffee. A recommended place.

  • Many information about planting coffee, vanille and bananas. Be carefull about opening hours, you could take english materials with information
  • An unforgettable experience and a historical discovery without equal. Joel and Françoise know how to share their passion for this land and their products. And coffee 100%, a treat. We are conquered.

  • Excellent tour. Guadeloupean heritage in all its glory. We learn a lot about coffee vanilla and banana. Very nice friendly Manager and hanging. Tasting and free snack after the visit. Too bad that the local habitants 100% coffee was not available for purchase because of the cyclone Irma... I recommend strongly the visit it is worth its price. Short concise and captivating, it changes other visits that can be done on the island.
