Located in the town of Le Francois on the east coast of Martinique, Habitation Clément is the birthplace of Rhum Agricole and sits in the centre of an ancient Créole sugarcane plantation rich with French West Indian history. The house has been completely refurbished by the Hayot family.
Formerly known as Domaine de l'Acajou, Habitation Clément welcomes thousands of tourists every year who come to discover old-world and new world Créole culture as well as tour the botanical gardens.
This is where Rhum Clément has been made since 1887 and few visitors leave without a special bottle for their home bar. Some of the older buildings have been refurbished and repurposed as galleries and there are frequent exhibitions of local Caribbean artists.
Habitation Clément has been a registered French historical landmark since 1996 and has hosted several significant world events and dignitaries.
