Our Luxury Villa (Le François)


The Alice Bay complex is situated halfway between the towns of Vauclin and François. Nestled in the heart of the Cap Est neighborhood on the Atlantic coast of Martinique, Alice Bay consists of two separate facilities—a sleek-lined luxurious villa and a bungalow. The complex can accommodate up to 14 guests.

The villa is laid out over two floors. An air conditioned office can be found on the ground floor, which serves as an additional bedroom thanks to a sofa bed. A spacious kitchen opens onto a dining room and a living room. The partitionless living areas feature an unobstructed view of the pool with the sea in the background. This well-designed villa also boasts a patio with a designer Lounge sofa as well as a home cinema room complete with a video projector and DVD collection. From the living room, a staircase leads upstairs. The hallway branches off into three air conditioned bedrooms and a master bedroom, with each bedroom having a separate bathroom with a shower and WC. Two of the bedrooms have a sea view while the other two look out onto the garden. Lastly, the master bedroom features a private patio with a large daybed that looks out onto the sea for maximum well-being. A separate bungalow located further down from the villa can accommodate four additional guests. It has two air conditioned bedrooms (one double room and one bedroom with bunk beds), a bathroom and fitted kitchen.

The outdoor areas are carefully designed with a spacious patio featuring deck chairs, an infinity pool with a breathtaking sea view, a living space under a gazebo just perfect for cocktails and a private dock with direct access to the sea. Watersports equipment is also available and includes two kayaks and a stand up paddle board. Everything has been thought of for your dream vacation. There's also no lack of things to do near the complex, including a kitesurfing spot only a short car ride away, a spa where you can unwind, the Habitation Clément distillery to discover its rum or the Fondation Clement with its modern art exhibits, boat trips to the surrounding islets with their transparent water, the beach at Pointe Faula and its beachfront restaurants for a relaxing day, and the list goes on. The complex's superintendant, who is responsible for breakfast and maintenance, is always available to steer you to the best places to see on the island for a truly exceptional holiday.
