Not really a chateau, but remnants of a 17th century plantation house and grounds. Interesting for a half hour visit, under the tropical heat and intense sun. The aristocrat from Normandy who went here to establish the place, must have been desperate to make some money. Of course, using slaves made it easier.

We combined a visit to this former sugar refinery/coffee mill/rum distillery with a walk through the surrounding forests. It was not entirely clear to us whether one had to walk to the chateau at the point the tarmac Road ends, or whether you can drive all the way. Actually, you can drive most of the way although parking in high... More

The ruins of the Château Dubuc are well identified heading towards Tartane. Besides the historic site there are nature walks & beaches along the way so it is good for a day outing. The site has audio guides in both Fr & Eng as well as bilingual panels. There is a 10 min walk fr the parking lot ( don't... More

The ruins are at the end of a relatively bumpy road, but easily accessible using the average rental (just go a bit slower). Drive as far as you can, unless you are keen walkers, trampers. It is only 5 euro pp for entry, and that gives you a map with a self paced audio guide which is in several languages.... More

A fabulously well-put together piece of Martinique history. As soon as I got there, staff met me with a smile and a willingness to help (and tolerate my chopped French). They did speak English but I wanted (and needed to) practice. The audio-guide was fabulous. The map and pen allowed me to take in the site at my own pace.... More

Historical ruins of a local estate - it should be notes entails lots of walking over less than easy ground, with the typical lack of signage. Older individuals should be very cautious on the trails - there is a long steep hike back to the parking lot and the areas around ruins are steep and slippery.

Well preserved archaeological remains of 17th Century chateau and distillery. Excellent self-guide audio tour in several languages, including English. You need several hours to see everything. Beautiful views of the Atlantic.Very interesting and a definite must see on Martinique.

A self-guided tour includes recording in English as well as French, so this tour is interesting to all. Spacious grounds, so leave time to browse and take in the sights.
