LA BATTERIE VILLA - BEAUTIFUL ISLAND VILLA, BREATHTAKING VIEWS, ST. LUCIA

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

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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!

LA BATTERIE EXCEEDED OUR BEST HOPES!

  • 5 out of 5
First, the photos posted on-line do not begin to show how beautiful the La Batterie house and grounds are, and the view from the balcony- and front bedroom- is the best on the island.
The property is a tough half-hour walk from Soufriere, but it is that climb that produces the view. It may be worth renting a car for exploring the island, but the first time up the road is not for the faint of heart, especially at night. There is a local driver who is very cooperative, but maybe worth setting fares ahead of time as he is quite expensive.
The three bedrooms are each distinctive, and there is plenty of room for getting away from everyone and everything. Each morning you wake in a private garden better than most resorts, and the only sound is birds and the breeze. The house is very clean, kitchen is well-equipped though its galley-style may work better for the housekeeping staff than as a central gathering place. They will cook for you which was particularly helpful on our day of arrival. Meat is of very limited selection in Soufriere.
The pool is big and very well-kept, and is set in the back, amidst the mango trees, palms and flowers. Good BBQ next to the pool.
We were very impressed with the owners' quick response to any enquiries we had, and appreciated all the advice they offered. We ate out at Ladera, which has great choice and quality of food, for dinner. Orlando's for lunch near the villa really impressed us with his delicious and sophisticated versions of local food. The Anse Chastanet resort is past the villa, not a bad walk, and we had a good sunset dinner there, Indian cuisine, reasonable value.
Soufriere town is worth a visit or two, but don't expect anything upscale. It grows on you. The locals are pleasant, and the old architecture is worth seeing. If you need to shop, head to the capital, and enjoy the ride along the hillsides. Parking in Castries is awkward- try the carpark building.
We visited the volcano, which is not overwhelming. But really, preferred to hang around the villa.
Overall, this property definitely exceeded our expectations, and is a great place to get away from it all.

A ROMANTIC GEM WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS.

  • 4 out of 5
After a few days at La Batterie, I began to note all the things that I hadn't noted (or were left out of) the listing description. Things like the expansive property - not sure the square footage but there is so much ample space here in the villa and also around the villa. You are never at a loss to find places to sit and either take in the spectacular pitons or relax by the poor in a Garden of Eden style setting. Pool waterfall is very zen, and at night, pool lights added an entirely different kind of ambiance. Water temperature always perfect, and pool is a really good size. It's deep though, so not ideal for small kids that want to play in the shallow end. We were surprised to find a brand new BBQ, and I think also the oven and fridge were fairly new, if not brand new. The staff is very helpful here. You can either have them full time, like an adopted family, or as we did, just intermittently throughout our stay, for varied things. It was absolutely stunning to wake up to the Pitons every day. We'd have coffee in bed for a pretty long time, just taking it all in.
If you're going to have meals cooked for you, you may want to indicate if you want your food spiced up or not. We wanted some real St. Lucian flavours and realized we should have indicated that we were fine to experiment with more spices and hot sauce! If you don't mind driving yourself around the island, it is is definitely more economical to rent a car, since taxis charge an awful lot. It would be $40 just to get to a restaurant and back, which was about 15 minutes away. The road to and from Soufrierre and the villa is quite steep, and it is not paved. We walked into town one day and were offered lifts about four times, so I think this is the way to go if you want to get to town! Town itself is rather shabby, but it did begin to grow on us, regardless. Just adopt a different perspective! And, DO not miss going to Orlandos Restaurant. They are open for both lunch and dinner and the food is fantastic. The chef worked at Ladera for 10 yrs before opening Orlandos, (Ladera - very high end restaurant on the other side of town, nestled between the Pitons - very romantic, but expensive to eat at and to get to!
Also drove to Castries - drive beautiful but not much to see there. Stopped at Golden Apple and ate on their roof under the apple tree. This just outside of the second town on the way back from Castries.
Villa owners are very helpful and always just an email away!

ONE OF THE BEST VILLAS IN THE ENTIRE CARIBBEAN

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed here on several occasions. The views are breathtaking. The villa is gorgeous. The staff is incredible. Cynthia makes fantastic food, and B.K., Terry, and Marylin are as friendly as can be. The town is great, the locals are great and it is very safe. Stay away from cruise ships and the crowds in Castries. Seasoned travelers stay in Sourfiere.


In short, this is a world class villa in every sense of the word.
I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is one of my favorite spots on the planet.

PERFECT BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!

  • 5 out of 5
From our initial contact with La Batterie's owners to our final good bye to Cynthia, our amazing cook, everything was perfect!
La Batterie is a beautiful home, with a spectacular view, that four of us were fortunate to be able to live in for a week.
All the information we received before arriving was accurate and helpful regarding the property and the amenities. There was no need to shop before arrival because Cynthia had all the items from our shopping list already in the kitchen. During our stay we enjoyed three delicious dinners that Cynthia prepared for us, including the special meal she made for my husband's birthday. We rated her chicken curry better than Dasheene, a top rated Soufriere restaurant.
The spacious rooms, comfortable beds, beautiful gardens, delightful pool and lily pond were immaculately maintained.
The entire staff at La Batterie take great pride in the property and went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable experience. We always felt very safe at the villa, day and night.
The location was ideal for scuba diving (Scuba St. Lucia), snorkeling and beach time at Anse Chastenet, just down the road. We were able to rent a grass beach umbrella and a lounge chair for the day ($10US each).
We were very happy with our decision to rent a 4 WD vehicle for our stay. We enjoyed the Botanical Gardens, Diamond Waterfalls and mineral baths, the volcano and sulphur mud baths and a great hike with a local guide at Tet Paul Nature Trail. All the attractions were near by.
Restaurants that we enjoyed were at The Hummingbird Resort, at La Haut Resort, Orlando's and Dasheene in Soufriere.
I highly recommend La Batterie to anyone wanting a perfect stay in paradise. The experience of staying in this beautiful home overlooking the amazing Pitons far exceeded all our expectations. We look forward to a return visit.

BREATHTAKING VIEWS & GREAT LOCATION

Breathtaking Views & Great Location
  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at La Batterie. The Villa has one of the best views on the island. It was awesome to wake up every morning and see the Pitons out our bedroom window. There is a great deck off of the living room to sit and take in the views as well.

My 2 teenage sons appreciated that they each had their own bedroom and bathroom.

The staff was very helpful and nice. Terry brought us freshly roasted coffee that his grandparents grow and Cynthia had some great stories about her family and about the history of the villa. Clavie was a great resource and provided us with friendly and reliable transportation. He gave us some great recommendations on restaurants and activities.

The villa is an easy walk to Anse Chastanet and Anse Mamin. The walk home is uphill so a cab ride is probably better although we did walk home from the beach one afternoon.

There is a ton to do in Soufriere. The Tet Paul Nature Walk, Zip Line, Gros Piton hike, sulpher baths and beaches were all a lot of fun. There is great snorkling at Anse Chastanet too.

The Villa was very comfortable and open. The pool area was great too. I would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy some time in St. Lucia.
