Our accommodation in Guadeloupe in Deshaies

The village of Deshaies is located between sea and mountains. Its magnificent bay offers a heavenly view of the Caribbean Sea.

It is a typical and preserved place. It is ideal for relaxing and recharging your batteries while enjoying the pleasures of the sea and the discoveries of lush forests.

We are located on the Leeward Coast, known for its wild nature, its heritage and historical value and subject to drying winds.

As a result, the coastal region is hot and dry.

As soon as you gain altitude, the savannah and copse vegetation gives way to rich and varied vegetation.

Also note, our village is the filming location for the series “Murders in Paradise” broadcast by the British channel BBC One since 2011. Since the creation of this detective series, the island of Sainte Marie is in reality Deshaies in Guadeloupe. As you stroll through our city and its surroundings, you will discover the filming locations that you may have seen on television. Or you might be able to attend a filming and meet one of the actors from the series.

The tourist guides are particularly complimentary about our town, and its “small fishing village made of simple and charming wooden huts of one or two floors”. This apparent “rusticity” is largely due to the turbulent history of the town since the mid-17th century. Isolated from the main roads, Deshaies was the object of frequent and devastating English incursions, when they were not those of the pirates who passed there to resupply and feast.

The road to the south of the island only dates from 1957, it allows you to discover magnificent views of the coastline.

As for beaches, those of Deshaies are among the most beautiful on the island, life is sweet there... what could be better?
