Abutting the foothills of Mt Pelée, the small village of L'Ajoupa-Bouillon owes its name to a settler known as "Le Bouillon", who had a house built on the site (in Creole, ajoupa means "shelter"), intended to accommodate travellers. The village was founded some two centuries later, in 1889. Today it is a flower-decked hamlet, with its main income derived from farming, and is ideal for a pleasant stopover.
