Comfortel De Champ is located in the village Picard in the North-West of Dominica, about 1.5 miles south of Portsmouth, the 2nd largest city of the island - well, large city... :-) and we are just 5 min walk from Ross University.
The West-side of Dominica lies on the Caribbean Sea. It's the warmer and a bit dryer side of the island but because Picard lies on the foot of the highest mountain of the island, Morne Diablotin of almost 5000 feet, there is often a refreshing tropical shower.
Both airports of Dominica are at about 45 minutes by car and it is most likely that you will arrive at Melville Hall Airport. I If you wish, we will come and pick you up or we can arrange that a rental car will be waiting there for you. DRIVE LEFT!! See below for how-to-get-to-De-Champ.
Another option is that you will arrive by ferry from one of the other islands. Then you will arrive in the new ferry-terminal in the capital Roseau. That is about an hours' drive by car and also there we will be happy to pick you up or arrange someone with a sign who will take you to your rental car. See how-to-get-to-De-Champ.
Let me tell you a bit more about the location of De Champ (click on the map for a more detailled map):
Comfortel De Champ lies on a hill, about a 180 feet high, and offers a stunning view over Prince Rupert Bay, the hills of Cabrits, Portsmouth and its' surroundings, and on a clear day you can see the island Guadeloupe.
Because all rooms and the bar are facing West we can enjoy almost every day a beautiful sunset. A tasteful rum-punch or a Kubuli (the local beer) make the sunset a great moment to relax at the end of the day.
Picard, Portsmouth is not only an optimal location to discover the North of the island. You can also use it as a starting point for trips all over Dominica. In an hour you are in the capital Roseau and in less then 2 hours you are at the South-Eastern tip in Grand Bay. - Do you prefer to discover the island starting from 2 or 3 different locations, then we will gladly help you to reserve at the best hotels or guesthouses.
