My fiancee and I spent 3 wonderful days at La Metisse. Sebastien and Fabienne were amazingly warm, friendly and helpful. Our room and the property itself were beautiful and well kept. We like to walk a lot on our trips and the property was less than a mile from the town and the harbor area. On the way were a...

Recently visited Hotel La Metisse in January, 2016. We could not speak more highly of this hotel/ bed & breakfast! My fiancée and I can only speak few words in French, which made the travel slightly more complicated. However, the trip was amazing, and we wanted to leave a review for future individuals interested in exploring Guadeloupe with limited French....

We went to Guadeloupe for good and perhaps strange reasons. Good were that it's France and that it's warm in northern winter. (Strange was to visit the town -- Deshaies -- where Death in Paradise is filmed.) We stayed at La Metisse and in Saint Francois not really knowing what to expect. Guadeloupe is larger than we realized and not...

Fabienne and Sebastien were super welcoming and helpful. I did a very dumb thing leaving a light on in my rental car on accident. Naturally, the car battery depleted and I couldn't start it the next day. They helped me get in touch with the rental car company to get that taken care of. Très gentils! The fruity Caribbean breakfast...

The room looked even better in person. My room was very Charming, Clean, Neat, and Cool.The owners of Le Metisse are very attentive and helpful. I would recommend Le Metisse to anyone. i would stay there again. Also Le Metisse is located in a posh neighborhood in Saint-Francois Guadeloupe, so you will be safe. Have a good time #InternationalDiva

La Metisse, as the other reviewers have said, consists of a handful of rooms facing the pool with a bit of a territorial view (you are up the hill past the golf course). The rooms are clean and of a good size - a little dated, but not horribly so. For the Caribbean, this is pretty high end for a...

A nice quiet place just a delightful 20 minutes walk from St Francois centre. Hardly a hotel as only 7 rooms & no full time reception but very clean & comfortable. I agree with one of other reviewers that a kettle in room would have been useful, so if you are a future guest take your own travel kettle &...

A quiet place with very helpful owners. We can only recommend others to stay there. The seven small houses are nicely decorated. We had a fine view to the pool and garden and enjoyed the fresh and delicate breakfast at the terrace every morning. We were happy for the help re restaurants and beaches.

La Metisse is a small hotel near the golf course in St Francois, Guadeloupe. There are 7 wooden chalets, tastefully decorated around a small but lovely pool. The welcome is excellent and breakfast is an original choice of local fruits and french croissants. The bathrooms are clean and functional but not luxurious and it would have been nice to have...
