Habitation Céron

Park and garden, Exotic, Park in Le Prêcheur
9 Full-fare
  • Habitation Céron, a 17th-century house with the "Remarkable Garden" label, is a former sugar refinery dating back to 1658, located in Le Prêcheur, in the north of Martinique. An exceptional heritage site in the heart of an oasis of biodiversity, between sea and river, a stone's throw from the magnificent beaches of Anse Céron and Anse Couleuvre.

    River, torrent, discovery of the fauna and flora of the North Caribbean: the park, with its tropical exuberance, has been awarded the Jardin Remarquable label since 2016.

  • The highlight is the Zamana ("rain tree" or "samana tree"), which has existed for three centuries and spreads its shade over half a hectare, winning the prize for the most beautiful tree in France in 2016. All the trees and plants have been inventoried and are signposted for educational purposes, combining science and history.
    As well as the zamana, you'll find cursed fig and cheese trees, tropical flowers and tree ferns around the bend of a pond. If you're observant, you may catch a...
    The highlight is the Zamana ("rain tree" or "samana tree"), which has existed for three centuries and spreads its shade over half a hectare, winning the prize for the most beautiful tree in France in 2016.

    As well as the zamana, you'll find cursed fig and cheese trees, tropical flowers and tree ferns around the bend of a pond. If you're observant, you may catch a glimpse of the yellow fal sucrier, the madera hummingbird, the lunette thrush, the red-headed didine, the caiali, the malfini, the red partridge, blue and green lizards and the impressive cliff matoutou, a spider closely related to the mygale, a species endemic to the West Indies.

    Habitation Céron, a haven of biodiversity, is committed to an agro-tourism approach: market gardening and fruit tree cultivation, rehabilitation of its cocoa plantation with over 2,000 trees planted and processing of cocoa beans used to make exceptional chocolates. Cocoa is widely present at the home's table and shop under the "Céron" brand. As a member of the Valcaco Association, their ambition is to join the top 10 of the best chocolate makers in France.

    Plan to spend the day so as to make the most of the charm of the place: laze by the river (ideal for a little siesta after lunch) or take a dip in the river after your walk. Take a horse ride. Throughout the day, you can enjoy cocktails and fresh fruit juices from the garden, accompanied by sweet and savoury tapas.
    Before you leave, stop off at the "Arômes et cacaos" shop, where crafts and delicatessen products made in the house are on sale.

    As well as visiting this exceptional site and horse-riding, take the time to have lunch at the house's restaurant, where the cuisine is resolutely based on 100% local produce.

    NB: The remains of the house are currently being restored and cannot be visited.
