La Plantation des Manguiers is situated in the tiny community of Bois Cachet (hidden wood). Once at the house it is difficult to believe that you are only minutes from the capital city of Castries, nestled as it is, amongst trees and foliage, notably Mango trees, hence the villa's name. With breath taking views over Castries out to Pigeon Island in the north and Martinique beyond, La Plantation des Manguiers is relaxing and tranquil with plenty of privacy. Castries is 5 minutes by car or bus (10 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop, all down hill!!) The white sand beach of Vigie with it's shady trees is 10-15 minutes from the villa and besides being great for a swim is also nice for a early morning or late afternoon walk. Reduit beach, a popular tourist area is approximately 30-40 minutes by car depending on the traffic. Pigeon Island is 5-10 minutes further north from here and offers beaches, walks and historical ruins, it is a great place for young children to run around.
Golf: Sandals Regency is only 5 minutes from the villa by car or a challenging 30 minute walk and offers a magnificent course with rolling hills and majestic fairways. A challenging nine-hole layout on 3,141 yards and par 33, this course features narrow fairways, making it suitable for skilled golfers, although it is also popular among beginners. There is also the St. Lucia Golf Club which is located on the northern tip of the island and is set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estates. The par-71 plays to 6685 yards/6113 metres and overlooks the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The course opened in 2001 and has since become one of the most demanding layouts in the Caribbean. The par 4 opening hole gets players’ attention right away with a fairway guarded on the right by a water hazard and trees and on the left with Out of Bounds. This course is approximately 40 mins from the villa by car depending on the traffic. If you require any further information on Golf in St Lucia, or bookings made in advance of your arrival Cathy will be pleased to help.
