Location: Le Gallerie occupies one of the most stunning locations in the West Indies. Perched on a promontory called Lookout Point, 300 feet above the Caribbean Sea, it faces due south to the majestic Pitons. The view is breathtaking, extending 180 degrees from Soufriere Bay, across the Pitons, St Vincent and around to the setting sun in the west.
Clouds drifting in from the Atlantic on the eastern side of the island can produce ever changing light conditions to illuminate the Pitons as they rise 2,500 feet out of the clear sea, the colour of which varies from brilliant turquoise to deep blue.
This most amazing and dynamic of panoramas provides a magnificent backdrop for the beautiful and charming house, making it a wonderful place to entertain, relax and unwind.
Space to relax and unwind: The magnificent living areas provide ample space for entertaining or quiet corners for peace and quiet to read and unwind. The gargantuan (60” x 30”) sitting room has a polished hardwood floor and large white sofas.
The end third of the sitting room is a covered veranda with views of the Pitons and across the deck and pool area to the west. A perfect place to sip rum punch and watch the sun go down.
There are two large TVs with DVD, one with home cinema, and an iPod docking station. A growing collection of paper back books is being constantly added to by our guests. Cards and some classic board games are also available.
Pool and facilities: A focal point is a 30 foot long infinity edge swimming pool and extensive deck area shaped like the stern of a steamer. Below the house a steep path and steps lead down to a secluded stone and pebble beach on a marine reserve with beautiful diving.
