This April I spent 8 days at Gabourg's family apartment.
The apartment was clean and comfortable, and has all the amenities you can imagine. It's located in quiet place on Fort de France suburbs.
Willy is very friendly, generous and extremely helpful.
I would highly recommend this accomodation!
Great location, the 3rd floor balcony faces due west so photographing the sunset is easy. Le Carbet is a small village and you need a car to get around the island but everything is within a short drive. The longest drive is to the southern tip of the island and that was about 40 minutes.
The pastry shop beside the gate is a great place for fresh baguettes and tasty pastries. The local fish vendors in Bellefontaine and St. Pierre usually have fresh fish that you can cook. The local beach restaurants like Le Petitbonum and Pelican Beach are a short walk down the beach and serve good food. A must see is the Jardin Balata - truly beautiful plants & flowers and lots of humming birds! At the exit of the garden is La Luciole, a great creole restaurant that serves a nice lunch.
The only negative comment is that we found the apartment was a little tired and needed a good refresh (paint, showers, furniture)
