A holiday villa in Castries provides the perfect base for exploring further afield by road or by boat.

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.

We arrived at the airport and found our taxi waiting for us. As we drove up the East Coast of St Lucia, the scenery is ever-changing and often stunning. The owners (David & Wanda were there to greet us on arrival. That evening David took us down to a wonderful restaurant on Marigot Bay for some island cuisine. The next morning we had our first tropical breakfast with the other guests. Lots of fruit, some that I had not seen before, French bread & good coffee. Meeting with the other guests was very helpful. We rented a jeep and were on our way to explore the island. I had read some reviews but Nature’s Paradise was beyond what I expected. A great pool with stunning views and Wanda’s garden is a gem.  The cottage had a full kitchen to make lunches and dinners. We did not use it too much due to the restaurants in Marigot Bay. David's tour of Soufriere is a must, and his advice was invaluable. This was my first time in St Lucia and we also felt safe and the people were very friendly. It was the best vacation we ever had. Will we return? You bet. Paul Kwame Johnson.

The villa itself is spacious and even though we were a party of 10, there was plenty of room for us all. The children loved the pool and the little bay nearby was convenient and secluded. Cyrus, Natalie and Nigel looked after us well - we couldn't have asked for more. The scenery in St Lucia is spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend a trip to Pigeon Island and an excursion on a catamaran around the island. Debbie was extremely helpful, answering all our questions promptly and honestly.
