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.

Many conveniences, but not commercial. Access to the Capella pool and the beach. Hiking and activities or relaxing were right outside our door. St. Lucians were very hospitable. The apartment was spacious, comfortable, clean and convenient. I would go back and stay there in a heartbeat.

As such expectations were very high and as the time came closer I began to get nervous, how could anything live up to such hype? Delighted to say that our stay at the White Turtle did. Beautifully laid out, magnificent views, wonderful pool. The love and attention to details that Dan took in building is seen everywhere. The thoughtfulness for his guests needs was also apparent. Honestly there was nothing we looked for that we did not find in the villa, extra towels, well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds with excellent linens. Very happy to recommend the White Turtle.
