Description of the Fermathe vacation apartment rental
The Florita, built in 1888, is the only one of the 19th century house that is still in use after the earthquake -- it is the Oloffson of Jacmel. Located on the Rue du Commerce, one block from the ocean, it is a step back in time. With the exception of modern plumbing, it has not been changed in any significant way since it was built.

It is furnished with period furniture. Art is everywhere -- in the halls, the bar, the rooms. Jacmel is only 2 hours from Port au Prince but is in another world. It is the prettiest and most peaceful and romantic town in Haiti -- the center of craft and Carnival. There are no factories and no pollution -- on a clear night there are a million stars in the sky. You can walk anywhere without worry, there are things to see along every winding street, it is the only town in Haiti to still have some of its original charm.
