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.

Places to Visit in Castries, St Lucia

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. It is in the shade of a huge samaan tree which is thought to be 400 years old. To the south of the square are some of the older French buildings which date back to the 19th century. 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.

St Lucia enjoys year-round tropical sunshine, and temperatures range between 29-31°C (84-88°F) making it a popular holiday destination at any time of year. The rainy season is from June to November, but it generally falls as short tropical afternoon showers.

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.

Chateau Mygo and Rainforest Hideaway are fantastic restaurants. The apartment is affiliated with Capella and guests are able to reap the benefits of a five star resort for half the price. Karen is a fantastic host. She was flexible and accommodating. The on site property manager is lovely and very responsive. I highly recommend this property!

Cathy, the owner, had helped us with the taxi and transport arrangements here (which in retrospect were essential as we would not have found the property easily by ourselves driving from the airport) and we arrived to be greeted by her and this beautiful - and beautifully appointed - house with its magnificent views high above Castries. It is very different from the anonymised poolside apartments and was just prefect for us - with the wonderful rainfalls teeming in front of us as we ate on the terrace and the balmy winds drifting through the house at night. We cooked for ourselves during our week long stay - a beautifully provided kitchen - and just simply unwound and relaxed in the house, on the terrace and driving to nearby beaches and bays. We watched the boats and cruise liners come in and out of the bay, adored the gardens and remained fascinated by the amazing birdlife and the little lizards. It is accessible by a very steep hill drive but this definitely part of the fun and the glory of this superb and characterful property. We could not have wished for a more gracious, fascinating and comfortable house. Cathy could not have been more helpful and welcoming (and her cat a lovely house companion
