Please note that Martinique offers exceptional hiking, sailing, snorkeling and kiting and very good windsurfing, horse riding fishing, and diving.

A fixed line telephone can be used - free of charge - for emergency calls worldwide and other calls on the island.

Minimum stay: 6 days (or more in high season)
Discounts: please ask
Price: between EUR 150 and EUR 300 per night depending on season
Price based on: 2 adults (and up to 6 children). Surcharge for more than 2 adults.
Transportation: Public transportation is rather poor in Martinique. Taxi service is good but very expensive. There are small buses that provide transport. However, I haven't used them and cannot comment. We highly recommend renting a car for your stay. The easiest and most convenient option would be renting and returning the car at the airport from AVIS, BUDGET, EUROPCAR or regional rental car companies. Ferry service exists to Guadeloupe, Dominica and St. Lucia. Direct (non-stop) flights are offered between Martinique (FDF) and Miami, Paris, Haiti, Montreal, St. Lucia, Cayenne, San Juan and seasonally to Isla Margareta (Venezuela), Havana, Dominican Republic and Trinidad.

The NeighborhoodThe house is in a very small and quiet residential area of mostly single family homes. Getting AroundBus services exist in Martinique but it is inconvenient. Taxis are very expensive. We highly recommend rental cars. Other Things to NoteAnse Matin - the beach at Cap Chevalier - is just less than a mile from the villa. You find there a great restaurant, a fantastic beach protected by an outlying coral reef and the perfect opportunity to relax, snorkel, fish, kite or windsurf.
