The French Caribbean archipelago of Guadeloupe offers multiple destinations in one. Some of the main islands include Basse-Terre, Grande-Terre, Marie Galante, Les Saintes and La Désirade, and each has its own unique character, but stunning beaches, jungle interiors, azure waters and a sense of joie de vivre are constants. There’s also a fine spread of accommodation options that let you experience island life at its finest, and are easily accessible for people with disabilities or those who use a wheelchair. Here, we reveal some of the best bungalow and hotel options – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Piton Bungalows, for a hillside hideaway in Basse-Terre

Overlooking the sea in the Deshaies area, just 3km (2mi) from Grande Anse, the longest beach in Guadeloupe, these picture-perfect Creole cottages promise to charm. There are nine ecolodges in total, nestled amid lush foliage. Each house – including one that sleeps up to eight – features a terrace with a barbecue, a fully equipped kitchen, comfy bedrooms and relaxing sofas. The free internet access will help you keep your Instagram content rolling. If you’re looking for something particularly characterful, the Pirate’s Hut cottage features a private jacuzzi in a boat, while the house named Pearl is the best and most easily accessible for people with reduced mobility. A stay in this area of Basse-Terre will allow you to discover the Deshaies Botanical Garden, while the golden sands of Anse Tillet beach are perfect for sunbathing. Masks and snorkels are also available to rent from your holiday cottage.

2. Village Bungalows Chez Honore, for prime beach access in Pointe des Châteaux

Expect a sunny vacation vibe from the get-go at this bungalow complex. The property, located 5km (3mi) from the coastal town of St François on Grand-Terre, serves up a characterful mix of studios, bungalows and villas that are a true taste of the Caribbean. The studios and bungalows are the best options for those in a wheelchair, with direct access into the properties from the beautiful grounds, via your own outdoor balcony.

The on-site open-air restaurant offers traditional Creole dishes and catch fresh from the sea. For a daytime pick-me-up, a colourful beachside shack has a spread of salads, sandwiches, ice creams and drinks to choose from. Spend your days enjoying the lush surroundings, taking a dip in the pool, lounging on the beach or enjoying your lodge and its private garden or terrace space.

When it comes to exploring the local area, St François is worth a jaunt with its collection of stores stocking local goods, marina and lively night market. And for some secluded tanning time, try the palm-fringed white sands of Raisins Clairs beach, or the more windswept reaches of Anse à la Gourde.

3. Ti Figues Bungalow, for family time in St François

Book this family-friendly bungalow and you’ll have the whole home to yourself. The characterful property is just a few steps from the spectacular beach of Mancellinier, so you can roll straight out of bed and onto the blissful white sands. As well as being a sublime spot to pitch your beach towel, this sweep of coast is a well-known spot for snorkelling and scuba diving.

If you tire of the beach, the villa has its own outdoor pool and sunning deck. Moving around the property is easy due to its open-plan nature, with a large kitchen that spills out to the outdoor areas, and quick access through the side gate. Other features of the two-bed property include air conditioning, and free parking. Nearby attractions include the charming coastal town of St François, the international golf course and the scenic Plage des Rouleaux.

Other perks of staying at the Majesty Palm include a delicious tropical breakfast served either at the edge of your pool or on your private terrace; other meals can also be arranged. If you’re venturing out to the beach, a picnic hamper can be made up for you.

There is a concierge desk at the property to arrange trips, but some of the attractions on your doorstep include the famous casino of St François, an international golf course and the spectacular beaches close to Pointe des Châteaux peninsula, one of the best observation points in the Caribbean.
