Village Artisanal de la Pointe des Châteaux

The Village Artisanal located on the far east of Guadeloupe, at Pointe des Châteaux (Castle Point) is home to a range of shops and boutiques selling souvenirs, handicrafts and knick-knacks ranging from chic to kitch. Colourful decorations and tasteful local jewellery line the shelves, and some unique items can be found.


Visitors to Guadeloupe can find many imported French luxury items, including fashion, perfumes, jewellery and delicatessen, like cheese and liquor. But the most rewarding shopping comes from supporting local industry, which offers wonderful handicrafts, rum and typical clothes and accessories, among others. Markets are a particular pleasure, filled as they are with the colours, sounds and aromas of the islands, and the numerous speciality boutiques carry some unique gifts and mementos.
