Le Hameau du Morne des Cadets Review

A prosperous farmer known to all as Tonton (uncle in Creole) Léon constructed these Creole-style bungalows so as to share his verdant north-side estate with ecotourists. Located high above the seaside town of St. Pierre, it is in a mountain hamlet that can seem like a step back in time. Yet these room, furnished with glossy, aquamarine tiles and ample space, can't be called roughing it, despite the lack of TVs and phones. There's no air-conditioning, either, but with the fresh mountain breezes it can even be chilly up here. The rustic prix-fixe restaurant features local fish, poultry and meat and the organic produce and fruit from Leon's fields that have helped earn him a part-time position teaching in France.
