The site is well preserved and interesting for those who know nothing about coffee and the harsh tropical agriculture. You can only visit the property with guided tour in French.The road is very narrow with very steep slopes and no visibility: an adventure in itself....More

The road-despite all the warnings, the danger here which I had not encountered before was cresting the top of a hill which was so steep that you started descending the other side with the bonnet of your car still pointing up - and so you...More

Situated on the most intense road you have ever seen, it was a harrowing experience just to make it to La Grivilière. Barely one lane in places, riddled with steep inclines and blind corners, it required much straining just to see the road on the...More

This was once a big coffee plantation. It is now a historic restoration and grows a little coffee. The tour tells about some of the tropical plants, making of coffee, and the history of the plantation. The tour ends with coffee or chocolate. Keep your...More

As others have pointed out, the road to the plantation itself will have you wondering why you ever decided to go and whether you're going in the right direction. Blame the coffee plant for preferring high altitude locations. Once you've made the journey, the tours...More

The tour of this 18th century coffee and cacao plantation takes about an hour; they go more or less on the hour (ours left 8 minutes after). Although mostly given in French, it is easy enough to follow and our guide spoke in English whenever...More

If you visited already other botanical gardens in Guadeloupe, you can spare yourself this location because you get mostly explanations about the creole garden you already know. Not much about coffee as stated on their website and what the aim of this domain should be....More

First off, Guadeloupe is a French speaking island with very little English spoken anywhere. If this is an issue for you, don't visit Guadeloupe. With that said, Habitation la Griveliere was one of the oldest coffee/coca plantations in this part of the world. Tours are...More

It's a risky drive out of the way on a very treacherous road (not just my opinion, road signs reiterate this often - very steep, mostly single lane road, you need to honk your horn as you turn the corner, you'll be honking a lot!)....More
