"Sainte-Anne: ma maison temporaire" Sainte-Anne by Pieter11

Sainte-Anne Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 7 photos

From October until December I am living in the town of Sainte-Anne, at the southern coast of Guadeloupe. I’m here to study French for a few months, hoping to improve this to a decent level. For this, Sainte-Anne is a great place to stay: it’s situated directly on beach, which makes it a great place to hang out after school every day.

Sainte-Anne is quite a small village (although you’re not allowed to use this name in French) that used to live from sugar-canes and fish, but now is completely dependant on tourism. Along the Boulevard Georges Mandel you’ll see nothing then bars, restaurant, tourist agencies and boutiques.

During the following months I will also try to find the more authentic side of the village, where you can still find the Caribbean, Creole influences instead of the “Club Med” influences.

    When I visited the beach at Ste. Anne, it was soooo crowded, I couldn't find parking! Thanks for your tip on "Métropole." I heard my friends using that word for France, but I didn't know why!!!
