    In 1839 Habitation Murat was one of the largest sugar cane plantations in Guadeloupe, with 207 slaves. This Habitation is now an ecomuseum of arts & popular traditions and a center for medicinal plants.
    Apart from the planters house, it has a windmill and a 'sucrerie'. The estate is immensely huge and standing in front of the planters house you have a fabulous view on the ocean.

    The windmills of Marie-Galante

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Marie-Galante is also known as the "Island of 100 Windmills". Only 72 of them have actually survived through the centuries and they can be seen all around the island.
    Moulin de Bézard, one of the first windmills in the French West Indies, has been rebuilt and brought to its original state. This is the only working mill - it processes sugar cane - in the Caribbean.
    You can taste the final product, RUM with 59° alcohol, bien sûr!
