A true find for peace seekers, Senteur Vanille makes you feel like you've stepped into a Garden of Eden, with mango, lychee and papaya trees all over the grounds. Curl up in a vast, well-equipped villa (ideal for families) or in a cute-as-can-be Creole bungalow. No swimming pool, but Boucan Canot beach is a 20-minute walk down a path.
The wonderful setting makes it easy to meet the three-night minimum stay. It's a few kilometres east of the centre, in the direction of St-Gilles-les-Hauts.
