  • A unusual visit! A beautiful park with works of arts documented, prelude to the tour of the factory. A must-see.

  • Beautiful moment in this enchanting place where the history of Martinique blends with the flora of the park where all species are presented in a pedagogical way. In the end after two good hours wandering from one point to another: of the rum distillery for 'habitation' through the garden and sculptures to the cultivation of sugar cane we have only one desire: come back in order to discover this place enchant EUR where one visit is not enough to know the soul of Martinique.

  • The plantation we visited here delighted us and we feasted on all points of view. Just out of battery...

  • One of the greatest gems of the isle. The grounds are extremely well kept by a very diligent theme. The audio guide service which allows all guests to roam the natural areas and the factory, with detailed description of flora, fauna, history and rum manufacturing process is breathtaking. The modern art museum, where we just managed to get a last tour of the Africa Contemporary Art exhibition before it got changes was quite lucky. The only challenge we faced was that we were not allowed to test/taste all the flavors of rum in the shop :P
  • This distillery is the Disneyworld and the leader of the pack of the distilleries. It served the best end to end the experience, even with the crowds. First, it had the most in-depth view of the distillation mechanics with an intriguing movies. It was a bonus to walk into their barrel aging houses too. We enjoyed the sculpture garden at the start of the tour, but not as good as a tour through Balata. The gallery and art museum were nice extras. As expected, the tasting room was a zoo. Despite that, I found a very knowledgeable Clement expert who offered a comprehensive tasting experience. Final thought: get there early! There are many tours and cruise ship visitors, on top of the regular traffic.
  • Interesting walking tour and Rhum tasting at the end was really excellent.
  • Really impressive property. The sculpture art is really stand out and they have a lot of very impressive exhibitions as well as a charming tasting room. Well worth the visit.
  • Excellent overview of many aspects of the modern aspects of the Rhum industry as it evolved into it's current state. The 12 Euros are worth the complete package of a self guided tour coupled with an audio guide. The gardens, views, and old/new distillery are in some ways frozen in time. Interestingly it is as the site of a famous Franco-American summit with Presidents' Bush and Francois Mitterrand on 14 May 1991 after the first Gulf War. Yes, take time to enjoy all the sites, including the two air-conditioned art museums.
