Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Soufriere - La Batterie Villa, Soufriere

3 Bedroom suites with full Bathrooms attached each with its own private deck.

Tucked away in the exclusive Anse Chastanet area of Soufriere, La Batterie villa offers complete privacy. You will find your escape at this luxury villa surrounded by lush gardens, a tropical swimming pool with accompanying cabana, lily pond and spacious decks. Located 300 feet above the Caribbean Sea facing the infamous Pitons there is no shortage of breathtaking views, cool island breezes and awe.

Moving inside, the villa is constructed of native stone along with teak and mahogany woods. Built in traditional Caribbean construction, the house has louvered plantation style doors that open to take full advantage of its abundant natural and tropical landscape.

The house has three bedrooms each with king sized beds and ensuite washroom to allow guests maximum privacy and can comfortably sleep a group of six. Each bedroom has its own lounging patio along with wardrobe closets. The master bedroom overlooks the Caribbean Sea while the two other bedrooms overlook the villa gardens. The rooms can be made with single beds if requested in advance.

Additionally, the villa has a loft over the living room that can be used to sleep two however we would recommend that they be in their teenage years to allow maximum comfort. In addition to the three bedrooms, the house provides areas for group gathering and entertainment such as the elegant terra cotta living and dining rooms which face the sea. The living room opens up to a 40 foot open teak deck that highlights the beauty of the Pitons where guests can enjoy the breeze while watching the boats pass by. The dining room offers a table that seats a party of six and is a great spot for enjoying amazing Caribbean dinners that can be requested through the house cook, Cynthia, for a nominal fee. For a change of scenery, breakfast can be enjoyed down by the cabana where a table setting allows you to ease into your day while listening to the waterfall hit the pool.

Words could never properly prepare you for the beauty that is Saint Lucia – come experience La Batterie and elevate your vacation to the next level!

Breathtaking and LOVED the staff!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to tell you how perfect this trip/experience was and how much we loved this villa. From the view, the staff and convenience of being near the beach, having a pool. I could go on and on, this was the best vacation that we have taken. We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate to come back. I would give this 10 stars if I could. I would like to personally thank Clavie for driving us around everywhere and making recommendations for dinner and day time excursions. I don't want to leave out Terry, BK and the ladies because they were awesome too.

Once In a Lifetime Experience

  • 5 of 5

La Batterie Villa exceeded my expectations. It is hard to put my experience in words but if I had to chose one it would be - paradise. I was welcomed by Clavie at the airport. He is beyond friendly and takes care of you 100%. He drove me from the airport to the villa. I was then introduced to Marilyn, Stephanie and Terry. I went on a tour around the villa and was surprised with an amazing dinner - compliments of the owners. I had pumpkin soup with local vegetables and a fresh salad - could not have been better. I sat down for a second and looked out at the breathtaking view of the Carribean sea and the Pitons. This view has to be the best on the island. I can not stress this enough. Every day I would wake up - still in awe of this view. La Batterie is a treasure and enraptures all that is beautiful in this breathtaking country.

Subsequent wonderful attributes of this villa include the salt water pool/lounge area and the surrounding lush gardens. The bougainvillea flowers were my favorite - they produce coral and fuscia flowers. There are also several other exotic flowers including helconia. The gardens are a joy and if you appreciate nature you will love La Batterie.

In regards to the pool - WOW! First of all, the salt water is unique and does not damage the skin like chlorine. The color of the pool is also beautiful. It is blue and catches the sun in all of the right ways. I spent a lot of the duration of my trip reading poolside with a nice refreshing glass of local grapefruit juice.

Lastly, each bedroom in this villa holds a certain charm. I stayed in the piton suite and let me tell you - the view was out of this world. I would open my doors each morning greeted by the beauty of this island. Did I mention there are fresh flowers placed throughout the house upon arrival?

It is hard to put my feelings/thoughts in words but I truly enjoyed my time at La Batterie. Saint Lucia is a one-of-a-kind island and staying at La Batterie made it unforgettable. I can only hope I will be fortunate enough to stay at this villa once again.

Dream Villa and View

  • 5 of 5

I splurged on a vacation for my family (3 kids) and grandparents. I've always wanted to go to a 'tropical' Caribbean island, and this exact spot in St. Lucia is probably the most beautiful and coveted in the entire region. When we arrived, we were nearly speechless. The Villa is a spectacular site, and the view takes your breath away. What we realized is that the website doesn't actually do the full property justice. The grounds are huge -- tons of room to hang-out, play soccer, hang with the bananas, swim in the pool, or meditate with the island gods. The ability to literally open ALL of the walls makes is a special experience. While is says 3 bedrooms, it also has a loft room -- and you can sleep a lot of people with all the space, if needed.

The staff were so friendly and helpful -- without being intrusive. But, be aware, when you rent this villa -- you're not there all alone, it has a staff to do cooking, cleaning, gardening, pool cleaning, and overnight watchman(ing). But, it's nice having 'peeps.'

For a day-long island boat tour, call Benny (www.bennytours.com), and call the Hummingbird Resort and ask for Chester if you want your own personal dive guide. While the resorts in the area are spectacular, don't be afraid to hang with the locals in town at the non-touristy restaurants.

We're coming back, no doubt.

Amazing stay! Can't wait to return.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay at La Batterie. The villa and staff exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone interested in breathtaking views and amazing staff. The villa was clean, well maintained and you can have as much privacy as you desire.

Cynthia cooked us local meals that were far better than the local restaurants. The local gardener even hand roasted coffee beans for us and had them ready in the morning for a fresh cup of java.

To be honest, we wish we would have stayed at the villa more during our stay. Before we left for our adventure we had planned multiple day trips around the island. Every morning we asked ourselves why we were leaving the comfort of the villa.

Location of the villa is perfect. A short drive and your to the hot springs and volcano. Your practically in the rain forest. There is a black sand beach only a 10-15 min walk from the villa (can be a tough walk back uphill) that provides the best snorkeling that we found. Bring your own gear as they charge $11 US/hr to rent. Or stay home and utilize the salt water pool at the villa.

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and look forward to returning. Again... HIGHLY RECOMMEND this villa!!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were spoiled. There is nothing missing in this fully outfitted house. The staff went about their jobs of keeping everything ship shape without being intrusive at all, very friendly and helpful with local insights. I am convinced there isn't a nicer package on the island. Walking either direction to beaches was an easy matter, but you should wear something better than sandals because of loose gravel and some steep spots. We walked down every morning to meet our dive master "Chester" from Action Adventure Diving.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time with a group of 9 at La Batterie over Christmas. The house and grounds were very well-maintained and clean. The viws was as beautiful as promised, and we had a lovely sunset over the sea seemingly every night. Great location, close to the beach down the street (very steep) with a lovely secluded pool as well. Everyone on the staff was very attentive and very friendly for the entire week. Clavie seemed to have all sorts of connections and set us up with various tours and trips thoughout the week, which was extremely helpful. We would recommend this villa to anyone looking to take a trip to St. Lucia. A+.
