So much to see: historical créole house, historical distillery, botanical garden, contemporary art gallery, local art gallery and functioning rhum distillery (with complimentary rhum tasting). Also the audio guide is both French and English. Beautiful property and very well managed.

The domain is not only interesting for his rhum fabrication but also for its exhibitions. Marvellous sculptures on the park and exhibitions fromage the Pompidou Center. Also interesting for the secret meeting between G.Bush and Mittérand to create the peace after the golf war.

I don't remember seeing any. Most visitors had rented cars or came in on tour buses. The area is pretty remote, there were no taxis waiting.
