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.

Castries itself has very little history although the original sea defenses are worth seeing. The central point of the town is the Derek Walcott Square with the Cathedral which is beautifully decorated with candles and flowers.

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.

                                                              Fantastic villa with breathtaking bay view

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The villa was perfect for our family holiday to celebrate my Dads 70th - our party included his 3 grandchildren aged 2, 3 and 7 months. It was extremely well equipped, spacious and airy with the most amazing views. The pool was the source of many hours entertainment for all ages - perfect to cool off in! We had many a pleasant evening grilling fresh fish and jerk chicken on the BBQ, whilst chilling out on the terrace. Location wise, having the restaurants, coffee shop / bakery a few minutes down the hill in Marigot Bay was great. The kids absolutely loved catching the little boat across to the beach and spent many an hour digging in the sand and splashing in the sea. A favourite pastime for the adults was watching the sun go down over the bay whilst enjoying an ice cold Pieton beer! We also ventured into Castries on a number of occasions to buy fresh fish from the local market and used the opportunity to stock up on herbs, spices and fruit and vegetables. In summary, a fantastic holiday would certainly recommend Bayy View VIlla. It is worth noting that Chris (the owner) provides the most detailed local information to help you, and then whilst in St Lucia, Pauline and the team will look after you amazingly well!

                                                              Brogan villa is absolutely beautiful!! Debbie, the owner was so lovely and arranged all of our needs. Nigel picked our family of 6 up from the airport and took us to our rental car and grocery store, prior to our arrival at the villa. Cyrus was waiting for us at the house to get us settled in. Cyrus was so accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home. He BBq Mahi Mahi on our 2nd evening and makes a mean rum punch. He also bought fish for us to grill on several occasions and he was like a lovely angel watching over us everyday and took care of my mother at the house while we went on excursions. He called my mom, "mommy". He is a gem!! Snorkeling and scuba diving are a must, Pitons are awe inspiring, Segway tour in Rodney Bay is a blast!! The house is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you would ever want!! We felt at home! St Lucia is a beautiful island with very friendly people. We felt safe everywhere. We are planning our next vacation to Brogan Villa! Debbie, thank you for sharing your home with us!!

                                                              We traveled with a group of friends with our respective children and had a great time in St. Lucia staying at La Paloma. The house at first was a little difficult to find with the attached directions - but so was everything else in St. Lucia ;) The house was huge - very kid friendly. The view from the balconies and pool were astonishing and very relaxing in the morning and at night. The pool is not huge - but was perfect size for kids to frolic around in. The house was very clean and well maintained. Its located in on a gated private road - so peace of mind for those worried about safety. Susie, the cook prepared the dishes perfectly. She and Annette were on time every day and the kids loved them. We had fresh fish delivered via a fisherman one day that was phenomenal.
