OK, now take a look at that photo above. It’s of a small hotel named Auberge de la Montagne Pelee in the north of the island. Fifteen minutes from the city of Saint Pierre (which we featured recently in another Caribbean Wallpaper post) and at the foot of the very volcano that destroyed Saint Pierre so many years ago, this hotel truly is in their words “a place like no other.” Should you win our giveaway, you might want to pay this wonderfully quaint little property with “sixteen bungalows with typical Creole charm” a little visit for a nice afternoon lunch as we did the day this photo was taken a few years ago.
Just imagine… There you’d be strolling up the path to the restaurant. Trade winds tousling your hair. While in the background, the warm Caribbean sun would be showing little coral colored roofs and the green (thankfully dormant) volcano in its loving glow. You’d probably hear the sound of exotic Caribbean birds chirping in French. And floating on the fresh, West Indian air would be notes of the fine creole cuisine you’d soon be enjoying.
This doesn’t have to be a dream.
