Where is the commune of François located?
Located on the Atlantic coast of Martinique, the François is a small agricultural town full of charm between Vauclin in the south, about 20 minutes and Robert in the north, also 20 minutes by car. The town of François in Martinique is particularly famous for its islets and white backgrounds as well as its sumptuous bay protected by a coral reef.
True agricultural land, the roads are bordered by fields of bananas and sugar cane. During the cutting period, the trucks filled with cane unload their precious cargo at the Simon house, the extracted juice of which will be used to make Clément rums. Approximately, 30 minutes by car from Aimé Césaire airport to reach the François.
What to do and what to see in the town and its surroundings?
One of François' unmissable activities is the discovery of the white bottoms off the bay. This activity is done by boat excursion. Leaving from the François Marina, you won't have to worry about finding a boat that will take you to one of these islets. Sometimes you are offered a full day excursion during which lunch and unlimited ti’punch are provided. Discover the Oscar Thierry islets, long, Lavigne and Frégate. Note that a guest house is located on Oscar islet. A dream environment awaits you: a white sand beach with a view of crystal clear waters.
It is also in this town that you will find one of the most famous distilleries on the island.
The Clément dwelling is a major heritage site in Martinique. Located in the heart of a 160 hectare agricultural property, this house offers visitors a discovery of the rum industry, in particular through the visit of the old distillery and aging cellars. You can also immerse yourself in Creole culture with a visit to the house nestled in the heart of the botanical park, where François Mitterrand and Georges W. Bush had lunch in 1991. Also take the time to visit the spaces of the Fondation Clément where exhibitions of contemporary art are regularly organized. In short, a visit steeped in history and essential in Martinique!
Rum lovers, it is also at François that you can discover the rum company located on the road leading to Vauclin. You will find all the rums from Martinique there. Tastings are of course organized and you can then buy the rum of your choice.
Finally, take a walk in the heart of the François covered market; a real joy for the eyes and the taste buds. Between fresh fish and freshly picked fruit, including authentic cane sugar, there is plenty to bring back some sunshine or something to enjoy for your lunch.
