Habitation Caféière Samana Beauséjour
WHO ARE WE ?
Etienne, Didier and their little animals are happy to welcome you to the site of the former Caféière Beauséjour.
After a very urban life as dynamic executives, trapped in Paris traffic jams, alleviating this stress by traveling around the world, we decided to change our life, to reconnect with certain fundamentals of life.
During a stay in April 2018 we decided to invest in Guadeloupe in order to acquire a second home.
Back to Paris, our research led us, in July 2018, to visit this property which seduced us, without knowing that our relatives and friends used to visit it.
It also turned out that there was a link between our Parisian apartment and this area, an artistic link.
There was therefore no possible doubt, we had to settle down in Pointe-Noire and create the Samana Beauséjour Housing !
We are happy, today, to be able to share with you the history of this Coffee House, and to welcome you there.
THE ESTATE :
The one and a half hectare estate dominates the Caribbean Sea and the city of Pointe-Noire to the west, and the mountains and Guadeloupe National Park to the east.
It is as if placed on the hill at an altitude of 295 m, giving you a 360 ° view.
We want the Habitation Caféière Samana Beauséjour estate to develop with respect for nature. We are, in fact, in the transition zone of the Biosphere Reserve of the Guadeloupe archipelago, at the edge of the buffer zone corresponding to protected territories. The Guadeloupe National Park being its central area with 22,144 hectares.
This reserve was designated by UNESCO in 1992. It is a worldwide recognition for a territory endowed with high quality ecosystems.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL & ECOLOGICAL COMMITMENTS :
All of the sanitation has been reviewed following the highest standards in order to be in compliance with the new standards and our environmental values. The property is equipped with two mini treatment plants that treat all wastewater to obtain recycled water, more than 96% pure.
We compost all possible waste and provide our customers with bins to sort waste by type: glass, plastic, metal, cardboard and paper.
We have started to replant rare species of fruit trees, such as chadek, cinnamon apple, soursop, cachiment, lemon trees, as well as other more common ones, such as coffee, cocoa, avocados.
The next investments that will be made will significantly reduce city water consumption. Rainwater recovery tanks will be installed to supply a secondary network (toilet flushing, washing machine, watering the vegetable patch).
Then, in a second step, in order to be less dependent on fossil fuels (Albioma coal-fired power plant and EDF gas-fired power plant), solar panels will be installed to absorb all of La Caféière's daytime electricity consumption.
