Once upon a time, perched on the heights of Colombier, there was a small boutique hotel with a colonial spirit named “François Plantation” with a renowned restaurant considered an epicurean institution on the island. Today it is the label Maisons and Hôtel Sibuet which continues the history of this emblematic place under the new name of Villa Marie, while paying homage to its roots, in keeping the name of the restaurant François Plantation.
Well-known on the island, the restaurant, Francois Plantation, a nod to the hotel’s epicurean past, offers sophisticated French cuisine with a flourish of local colors. Lobster and grilled vegetables, colorful catches of the day, crisp and vibrant salads followed by sweet notes of local specialties coconut cream and flambéed bananas. On the ceiling, fans with mahogany blades turn indolently, the white walls contrast with the dark wood on the floor of the room with the colonial atmosphere, in the tradition of plantations, with touches of ecru and yellow glancing at the tropical garden through the claustra’s, or from the veranda equipped with woven chairs...
Imagine a dolce vita atmosphere with creole accents, in the heart of a tropical garden, with a soft melody in the background... In the Hotel bar, you will discover a selection of the finest rums of the region that can be accompanied with an exceptional selection of Cubans cigars from the on-site humidor. Guests can also enjoy signature cocktails like the Royal Mojito, Coco Punch, Pina Colada or the irresistible Ti Punch.
