Gardens of Guadeloupe: Life in Paradise



If you have ever wondered where the popular Caribbean detective drama ‘Death in Paradise’ is filmed, the answer is the French island of Guadeloupe in the Lesser Antilles. While we will of course take the opportunity to visit some of the familiar locations from the series, this tour is more about the wonderful gardens, bewitching vistas and delightful French ambience that this butterfly-shaped island has to offer. It is also a chance to escape our own winter and enjoy some beautifully warm weather and a little taste of Life in Paradise.

Garden visits include the Jardin Botanique de Deshaies, offering the perfect introduction to the flora of the West Indies; the Jardin Valombreuse, an exceptional botanical collection created from scratch following a devastating hurricane, and the Jardin Botanique du Désert which by way of contrast offers a huge selection of cacti and succulents – with the added pleasure of a boat trip across turquoise waters to reach it.
