Fodor's Expert Review L’Habitation Tabanon

Moulin de Tabanon, 5 Chemin de Tabanon, Petit-Bourg, Basse-Terre, 97170, Guadeloupe

This rental complex is in a small market town in the heart of Basse-Terre, the mountainous, wild side of Guadeloupe, where ecosports and scuba diving are the main draws. The architecture is meant to resemble a plantation great house (that’s a stretch) and deluxe apartments are connected by a water installation that is a modern take on a distillery’s aqueduct and water wheel. It's just 20 minutes from Guadeloupe’s international airport, but, alas, it's 30 minutes from any beach. The villas are named after rum punches (liqueurs). Villa Coco, which includes three bedrooms, has a terrace that overlooks a private pool. Weekly rentals are the norm.
