The Gwo Caillou Quality Charter

Our gîte will always be far more than just a business. It is a means to meet people and help them to discover the most beautiful parts of Guadeloupe while staying in comfortable and typical surroundings.

While creating our gîte, we have put a great effort into details to reflect the local atmosphere: The cases (meaning houses in Creole) are built out of tropical red wood and include items made by local artists. All our houses offer a good compromise between authenticity and high level of comfort.

The garden around the gîte include indigenous species and are a mixture of botanical gardens and tropical forest to give each case (house) a complete privacy through a screen of vegetation filled with local birds.

The swimming pool is very much pampered and the quality of the water is checked on a daily basis. We have built a little carbet where you can relax in the shade with your loved one or watch the children play. The swimming pool meets the safety standards and is surrounded by a fence and a secure gate for the safety of the little ones.

To show our standards of quality, we were eager that the Guadeloupe National Park recognize our environmental approach in the building of our houses to local traditions. In our gardens, it was also important for us that the National park recognize our commitment to protect rare local plants. We are very pleased to say that we were awarded the top level: The National Park Golden Trust. Gwo Caillou is also a member of “Guadeloupe Autrement”, the local Eco-tourism association whose aim is to create a network of motivated partners to follow and respect eco tourism rules.

You can be assured of our commitment to welcome you in an intimate structure where people and nature are highly valued. Cleanliness and consistency are also top of the agenda for us. We are and will always be available to advise our guests and help them discover our most beautiful island and to help them solve any problem they may encounter

In 2006 the “Guide du Routard” wrote “We can guarantee that you will find it hard to leave Gwo Caillou and that you will be determined to come back”. We want this to be the case for all our guests and hope that you will enjoy our website


We look forward to welcoming you in Guadeloupe


All the best

Jeanne & Luc
