A Slice of Southern France in the Middle of the Caribbean

Laid back and off the beaten path, the eight idyllic tropical islands of Les Saintes are part of a volcanic archipelago fully encircled by shallow reefs. Only two are inhabited, of which picturesque Terre-de-Haut is one.

Everything you look for in a tropical paradise is contained within its six square miles – superb beaches, gorgeous bays, exceptional snorkeling, historical sites, and a charming village of bougainvillea-shaded lanes lined with tiny brightly painted houses, excellent restaurants, interesting shops, and unique art galleries.

The men of Les Saintes are fishermen, reputedly the best in the West Indies – seafood for dinner anyone?
