I had the pleasure of visiting Terre de Haut, one of the main islands of the Isles des Saintes archipelago, while sailing the Caribbean on the Star Clipper tall ship.
I immediately fell in love with this beautiful cluster of islands and its relaxed vibe. You're in France (well...) but the locals are friendly and used to people arriving by ship (but no big cruise ships though, thank goodness!).
The local library was the best - just sit and read and enjoy a little people watching and the evening breeze - wonderful!
