favorite_borderTartane: House3 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 6 • #240278288 to 357 USD/nightOur spacious three bedroom two and a half bath home is now available for rent here on the beautiful island of Martinique in the French West Indies. Please read the reviews written by our guests for this year and last, many have returned several times. We have just totally refurbished it with a new kitchen (with granite counter tops), and brand new appliances as well as all new kitchen accessories. New baths, furniture, paint, and much more, decorated in a coastal style. All bedrooms are air-conditioned. THE HOUSE IS BASICALLY LIKE NEW !!!!!! It is super comfortable and functional. There is plenty of square footage, decking, and yard space to move around in. You will love the salt water pool as well as the view of it from the house. The pool is surrounded by a mix of red wood decking and clay tile, and flowers galore. Come and experience a taste of France in the warm Caribbean. Part of the Windward Island chain and nestled between the islands of St. Lucia and Dominica, it sits about half way between North and South America, and is served by many major airlines. Far away, yes but home to one of the best infrastructures in the Caribbean, as Martinique is still a French Department and benefits from that relationship. As a result we have great roads, hospitals, doctors, supermarkets, (with French foods and wine), and bakeries 5 minutes away for breakfast treats. In our small village of Tartane there are tiny grocery stores, a gas station, several restaurants and cafes and some small marches where you can buy local fruits and vegetables. You can also buy fresh fish daily caught by the fisherman of the village. It is located at the very tip of the peninsula we call the "Caravelle" which is the French name used to describe the ships used by Christopher Columbus who discovered the island in 1502. Directly in front of the house is our beach which we call "Surfer's Beach", and as you can see from the pictures of the surf, it is a name well chosen. Directly east, a few steps away, is the largest nature preserve on the island where you can hike and explore, visit secluded beaches, and discover the Light House with a view that will take your breath away and the Chateau Dubuc, the ancient ruins of farming family pioneers, who at one time owned the entire peninsula where they produced sugar cane for export to Europe. There are hikes for all levels in the preserve from 30 minutes to 3 hours. For hiking nuts, Mount PELE awaits to the north. It sits at an altitude of 1397 meters and is well known for its eruption in 1902 that destroyed the capital (at the time) of St. Pierre killing 30,000 inhabitants. Hikes near the volcano can range from a few hours to all day depending on your stamina. To the south are the beautiful beaches of Diamant and St. Anne offering a less mountainous version of Martinique, and white sand beaches. To the west are the black sand beaches of the Caribbean side of the island and the town of St. Pierre, with all its history and volcanic ruins.
