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 apartment was even better than we imagined from the photos .. 2 huge luxurious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, and 3 fantastic balconies to relax on throughout the day. The Capella resort is beautiful and the staff could not have been more helpful, attentive and friendly. The hourly treats by the pool in the afternoon were a real surprise - fruit kebabs, fresh fruit juice, sushi snacks, fresh coconut water and a 4pm cocktail :) We used the Marina supermarket most days for snacks and there are plenty of restaurant options - we ate twice at Masala Bay Indian, Julietta's on the hill once and many breakfasts and dinners at the Bayside Cafe which serves great food. A beautiful apartment in a magical setting.

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.

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.
