Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Castries, St Lucia your home away from home

Castries is the capital of St Lucia and is located on the northwest side of the island. It is a busy port of call for Caribbean cruise ships which use its deep harbour. Consequently there are plenty of duty-free shops and a bustling market. The town itself is quite newly built, having been destroyed by fire several times in its long history. A holiday villa in Castries provides the perfect base for exploring further afield by road or by boat.

Things to Do in Castries, St Lucia

Castries offers unrivalled shopping with its colourful daily market and tempting duty-free prices. Buy local crafts, fresh fruit and Indian spices from the local women in their traditional dress and cotton headdresses. Dining out in Castries is also excellent, particularly at some of the fish restaurants which overlook the busy waterfront. Views from the top of Morne Fortune make this walk well worth the effort. The area is within easy reach of your Castries holiday villa. The hill is the site of Government House and a tour of the exotic gardens is well worth doing. Visitors can also explore the military cemetery, the Old Battery and the Powder Museum, all relics of St Lucia’s colonial past. St Lucia has many fine sandy beaches which are ideal for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, diving, boat trips, watersports and even turtle-watching.

Just outside Castries is the Marquis Estate, one of the largest on the island. It offers tours of the working plantation, a visit to the old sugar mill and boat rides on the river. Other places to visit include the weekend street party at Gros Inlet and the beautiful beach at Marigot Bay.

STUNNING LOCATION

5 of 5
We stayed 6 nights in this fantastic condo from 11-17 March. It's spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and beautifully furnished. The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning and so picturesque, we loved watching the yachts coming in and the locals going about their business every day. Having the use of the 5* Capella Bay hotel facilities is a bonus and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We also loved going on the beach and having a drink with the locals at Roots bar- Fluffy and Sue run this and are a fantastic cpl they serve great local food and beers all at local prices too. You must try the Indian restaurant "Masala" below the apartment, the food is first class and delicious. Doolittles is also great for lunch and cocktails and Rainforest hideaway has a good menu for dinner in the evening - we ate lion fish which is one of the very few restaurants on the island that serves it. All in all this has to be the perfect Condo in the most amazing perfect location and would absolutely return in a heartbeat.
