Fodor's Review

This former estate perched on a verdant hilltop, has breathtaking views overlooking the Atlantic. An interesting Parisian couple returned to the husband's homeland and lovingly restored the family's 19th-century Creole plantation house, starting with six simple guest rooms opening onto a wraparound verandah. They then expanded to 30 rooms while maintaining the colonial ambience. Nineteen rooms are housed in recently constructed or completely renovated freestanding cottages

on a knoll overlooking the Louisiana-style greathouse. The newer rooms have some antiques and more style. Seven rooms (five doubles and two bi-level "quadruples") have been carved out of the original stables, and three four-room lodges, built in the same Louisiana-style architecture, house a fitness room and a conference room. Those built in 2009 are the best yet—six huge, two-bedroom flats, with four-poster beds and fashionable lighting; they are rented seasonally, with minimum night stays. There's free Wi-Fi, as well as a media room with a wide-screen plasma TV—there aren't in-room TVs (or phones.)

The elegant restaurant, furnished with mahogany period antiques, vintage photos, and chandelier, has a fixed-price dinner menu (€40), and non-guests are welcome with a reservation. Expect mains such as sea bass on spinach puree, fresh vegetables from the garden, and perhaps a coconut-and-guava tartin.
