What could better evoke the picture of a memorable holiday than a luxurious villa in the virgin tropical landscape of the Caribbean? The Islands of Guadeloupe offer every single ingredient you need to shape the vacation of a lifetime. Five main islands and a bunch of deserted islets give life to a heavenly realm of white sand beaches, turquoise seas, lush tropical forests and tons of fun and entertainment. For anyone willing to take a break and venture into this land of wonder, these are some of the best villas in Guadeloupe – bookable on Culture Trip.
Located on the northern portion of Marie Galante Island, this hotel is right next to one of the most pristine coasts of the Guadeloupe archipelago – not far from the beaches of Vieux-Fort, Anse Canot and Anse de Mays. Set in the premises of an old sugar refinery, it’s still possible to marvel at the old sugar mill, once the central focal point of the estate. Au Village de Ménard is a family-friendly venue with colourful bungalows spread throughout a vast tropical garden with a swimming pool. Ideal for both relaxation and entertainment, the spacious villas come with well-furnished kitchens and typical verandas with dining areas.
This is a charming tourist residence that adds pure Creole flavour and colour to your much-awaited tropical escape. On the northern side of St Louis on Marie Galante, the villas offer easy access to the rainbow-blue waters of Anse de Vieux Fort. Seven villas named after delicious spices have been specially furnished to season an unforgettable holiday. Built respecting the architectural style of the island, some villas come with a private pool and others with their own personal spa. Hard to choose? Worry not – they all boast impeccable style and extreme comfort.
Somewhere between traditional and contemporary allure, Village de la Princesse is a complex of multi-coloured villas in the relaxing countryside outside of St François. With private outdoor swimming pools and beautiful tropical gardens, each of the villas grants a tranquil ambience in a homely setting. Every villa has three comfy bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a seating area and a furnished terrace. Not far from the venue, it’s easy to find convenient stores, shops, and restaurants. Downtown St François is very close to the property while the imposing Raisins Clairs Beach is only 10 minutes away.
Have you been dreaming about Caribbean coves and dazzling turquoise seas? All of these and more are to be found on this beach villa in Deshaies. Wooden decks, colourful walls, rustic beds and soft mattresses are just some of the bonuses that the property features. Entrusting easy access to Leroux Beach, Guadeloupe National Park and the recreational waterpark of Espace Thermoludique René, the villas are well located for a super fun escape. Kayaking, scuba diving, and windsurfing are just some of the sports that can be enjoyed in the nearby Rifflet Beach.
Welcome to a place where pristine turquoise seas seamlessly blend with the colour of the pool and palms trees, an inviting pergola and a boat-like sunbathing deck. Residence Villa Zen is a gorgeous retreat at Le Helleux – halfway between St Anne and St François. Villa Zen features a comfy living room with a TV lounge, a spacious kitchen and a dining room opening to a fantastic teak terrace with an infinity pool and spa. There are four bedrooms with four private bathrooms and an independent bungalow for further privacy.
Minutes from the northern coast of Anse Bertrand on the island of Grande Terre, Fleurs d’Épices is perfect for holidays in harmony with nature – as a family, as a couple, or on your own. Situated in an advantaged location for easy beach hopping, this traditional private rental takes pride in its comfort and services to make your vacation a success. Staging an outdoor swimming pool and a superb garden, the classy venue features a complete kitchen with a microwave, toaster, coffee machine, and microwave. Rooms are airy and fresh – with simple but comfortable furniture.
In the heart of Le Moule – next to Anse Archange Neu on the gorgeous island of Grande Terre – Les Villas Tamarin is close to the beach and several other landmarks in the area, including Saint-John Perse Museum and Schoelcher Museum. Shopping addicts will find relief either in Darse Market or at the exotic and inviting Spice Market. Featuring outdoor pools and gardens with barbecue and picnic areas, these accessible villas come with a well-equipped kitchen and dining room, a simple but quiet seating area and comfy bedrooms with premium bedding for an awesome night’s sleep.
Located in the heart of Grand Terre Island – surrounded by the exotic hinterland landscape of Guadeloupe – this villa is a perfect place for a family holiday in the Caribbean. Equally distant from the beaches on the northern and southern coasts, it provides a comfortable starting point to explore no matter which direction you want to go. This family villa can accommodate up to eight guests in a comfortable and ample setting – with a huge, well-equipped kitchen, three comfy bedrooms, a parking area and housekeeping services upon request.
Warm and cosy wooden spaces highlight the seaside character of these luxurious and modern villas near Plage de la Perle on Basse Terre Island. These four villas with a swimming pool and exclusive sea views are also conveniently close to Leroux Beach – as well as the Guadeloupe Zoo. They also feature a garden and a barbecue. In the privacy of your room, be amazed by the premium bedding and pillow menus as well as the fantastic modern bathrooms with rainfall showerheads. There are two pools and a stunning beach bar on the premises, too.
St Anne on Grande Terre Island – a magnificent hideaway spot with inspiring green scenarios and endless blue seas – is home to Villa Mary Island. Secluded, private, and intimate, this villa is such a dreamy place to stay that you might as well never want to leave the premises. Dazzling surroundings shape the inspiring wooden deck with a pool and hot tub. Once inside, the elegant spaces with clean lines and modern furniture produce an inviting ambience combining comfort and contemporary flair.
