The Hôtel and  La Table De MAMY NOUNOU

On-site are 14 studio apartments, each with telephone, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, a kitchenette, and TV.

Set less than 1km (1/2 mile) east of the fishing village of Tartane, this is the most easterly restaurant in the most easterly hotel on La Caravelle peninsula. The setting, as created and maintained by a team of English-speaking expatriates from the French mainland, is idyllic, a renovated complex perched within a hill-hugging compound of veranda-fronted buildings overlooking the sea. The restaurant is the main allure of the well-managed and carefully maintained Hotel Caravelle.

Lunches are faster, and less elaborately orchestrated, than the candlelit dinners, where guests linger longer within an ambience that falls midway between what you'd expect on the French mainland and what you find in Fort-de-France. Menu items change frequently but might include a colombo (spicy Creole stew) concocted from fish, or chicken; braised filets of red mullet with tropical fruits; or, depending on the mood of the chef, classic dishes such as foie gras. Desserts might feature a semi-moist version of chocolate cake, or perhaps a rum-and-orange-flavored soufflé. There's dining on the veranda, easy access to a garden, and, from virtually all points, a sweeping view of the sea.

On-site are 15 studio apartments, each with telephone, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, a kitchenette, and TV. Accommodations rent for 61€ to 84€ double.

The Hôtel

 

The energetic Mahler family transformed this simple hotel with a renovation and their artwork from Africa, where patriarch Jean-Paul worked for several decades as a manager of five-star hotels. Several of the "family" rooms connect, making them good for groups. All the rooms are a good size. Steep steps lead down to a long beach, where surf's up. At sunset, you can take a perfect Caribbean cocktail before your dinner at the terrace restaurant, with its splendid view of mountains and ocean. Teak chairs and tables on its verandah look smart, as does the overhanging red tin roof.

 

 

 

La Table de MAMY NOUNOU

Although the name may sound like a local eatery, it's actually quite a civilized setting with cuisine rafinee. Sip an aperitif while listening to the mesmerizing music and admiring the view from the lounge decorated with African art. Chef Jean-Paul Mahler has been the recipient of a number of culinary awards. He is continually outdoing himself, as the à la carte menu becomes more inventive, with additions like foie gras served with vanilla bourbon, red pepper jam,and prunes in an orange sauce. An amuse-bouche arrives before the outstanding appetizers. Finish with a trio of desserts, which might feature gingerbread ice cream. Lunch is served outdoors on the terrace and has a simpler, less pricey menu, and includes some salads, even one with smoked chicken.

The Hôtel

 

On the eastern outskirts of Tartane, this is a small, friendly hotel, withsteps leading down to the fabulous Anse l'Etang. Recently renevated in charming Creole-African style, the cosy entrance feature art and sculpture, and there is a hibiscus-covered, decked terrace with glorious view of the Atlantic. The simple, but comfortable, studios all have colorfull furnishing and well equipped kitchenettes. This is a real gem.

The Hôtel

 

The best hotel value near Anse l'Etang is the charming, family-run La Caravelle, east of the beach on a commanding hillside perch on route du Chateau Dubuc. The 14 quaint studios and apartments - all with kitchenette, TV, a/c and easy beach access - were all completely renovated in early 2005.
