Le Hameau du Morne des Cadets

Morne des Cadets, Fonds-St-Denis, n/a Martinique, 97250, Martinique

These creole-style bungalows were built by a prosperous farmer in 2012 to share his verdant, north-side farm with ecotourists. The location, high above the seaside town of St. Pierre, is in a mountain hamlet that can seem like a step back in time. Yet these rooms have ample space and are by no means roughing it, despite the lack of TVs, phones, and a/c; with the fresh mountain breezes nights can even be chilly up here. All four bungalows have fully equipped kitchenettes. But if you don't wish to self-cater, the rustic prix-fixe restaurant features local fish, poultry, and meat as well as the organic produce and fruit from the farm's own fields and serves all three meals (with advance notice). Qualified professionals in agriculture, hiking, music provide the activities and offer thematic day tours.
