Nestled in a cove on the west coast of Martinique, the village of Les Anses d’Arlet borders the Caribbean Sea and boasts a magnificent sugar refinery house that looks down on it. Facing the sun, the village is protected by "mornes", a name given to the local hills which surround it.
Along the seafront, "carbets" (kiosks covered with thatched-liked tops) and flowers border the lively walkway in the heart of Les Anses d’Arlet village. The church, a classified historical monument that boasts a bell tower recently rebuilt identical to that of the 18th century, is located on the waterfront.
Old, authentically Creole, wooden houses painted bright colors face the sea. Recently a Nautical center has opened and offers numerous of water sports (windsurfing, dignhy sailing, canoeing …)
Le Villas Félicité were built on high ground on the morne facing the village. The beach is just 300 meters away : fine sand, clear, warm, deep-blue sea, colorful fish swimming circles around the rocks just beneath the surface and children playing at the pier. You can spend hours relaxing and the enjoying the fun. (You can also use your French and why not learn a few words in Creole ?)
At the waterfront restaurants, you’ll discover and enjoy the local cuisine: accras (cod fish-cakes), stuffed crab, colombo de cabri (kid dish) and grilled fished with "sauce chien". The mangos and pineapples are fresh and their taste is unbeatable.
