Discovering Sainte-Marie Island ... authenticity, simplicity and intimism.
Feet in the water, Catherine and Bertrand welcome you in an intimate setting on one hectare of tropical park with a swimming pool and 3 villas, and 2 rooms in the main house, with "country" decoration, traveller's tree leaves on the roofs, precious wood floors, and European comfort.
These two lovers of the island make you discover still privileged places where you find yourself alone in the world, guide you to appreciate the multiple facets of its nature, of its flora (endemic plants) of its deserted beaches, and its fauna, in particular the humpback whales.
You enjoy very varied landscapes with them, people to meet, fruits and vegetables to taste, succulent culinary specialties to taste, traditional massages to relax you and many other experiences to enjoy.
As for friends, they take you to discover the northern half of the island, untouched by modernism and mass tourism. Authentic villages,with small wooden boxes, without running water or electricity,a large half of the island that has remained untouched by supermarkets, nightclubs and other places of frantic consumption. Human encounters with friendly Saint-Mariens and other local artisans but also swimming on the most beautiful beaches of Sainte Marie,and hikes in the countryside, where rice fields and fruit trees rub shoulders with unmarked paths.
