Named Karukera or "Island of beautiful waters" by the Cara Indians due to its numerous rivers and waterfalls, the island was discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus who gave it the name of Guadeloupe in homage to Santa Maria de Guadalupe, in Estramadura, Spain. Since 1946 the island is a French Overseas Department with more than 400,000 inhabitants.

Guadeloupe is also an archipelago composed of five other islands : Les Saintes, Marie-Galante, La D鳩rade and Petite Terre, Saint Martin and Saint Barth鬩my. Guadeloupe and Martinique the two islands in the Lesser Antilles are called the French West Indies (FWI).
Sainte-Anne is a small seaside resort of some 20,000 inhabitants on the southern coast of Guadeloupe (Grande-Terre). Sainte-Anne has always been known for its magnificent beaches; but in addition to the dazzling beauty of its coastal areas, there lies a fascinating and rich inland heritage awaiting your discovery: the cottage industries craftsmen, the former windmills of by-gone times, the quaint country atmosphere, the fabulous vegetation in the "Grands-Fonds" area, the land based activities, and much more....

Sleeping and meals

In order to maintain linguistic and cultural continuity, accommodation is on a half-board basis (private room, breakfast and evening dinner) with one of our local, selected host families. Homestays (Host Family): the school staff personnally know every family which makes it easier to match each student. At any moment during his/her stay, if the student is not satisfied with the family he/she will be able to change family free of charge.

Host families are located from 150 meters up to 7 km from the school, so students will easily be able to come to school on foot or by local bus. Please notice that local public transport runs from 05h00 till 18h30, until nightfall.

Other accommodation options include youth hostels and tourist hotels.
