Hotels in Le François
A tiny speck of sand just off the French Caribbean island, Îlet Oscar has only one building: a 19th-century house with four guest rooms that face an aquamarine lagoon. The daily catch is prepared Creole-style and served in the antiques-filled dining room. ilet-oscar.com.
The accent is on Creole French in this tasteful collection of villas facing Thalemont Bay.
At this 50-suite escape on Martinique's verdant eastern coast, a Guerlain spa and Creole fusion cuisine add Gallic spice to a modern plantation-style hotel decorated with vibrant madras fabrics. Take your cue from the French clientele and touch up your tan Euro-style (read: topless).
