Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Tucked away in the exclusive Anse Chastanet / Jade Mountain area of Soufriere, La Batterie villa offers complete privacy. You will find your escape at this luxury villa surrounded by lush gardens, a tropical swimming pool with accompanying cabana, lily pond and spacious decks. Located 300 feet above the Caribbean Sea facing the infamous Pitons there is no shortage of breathtaking views, cool island breezes and awe.

Moving inside, the villa is constructed of native stone along with teak and mahogany woods. Built in traditional Caribbean construction, the house has louvered plantation style doors that open to take full advantage of its abundant natural and tropical landscape.

The house has three bedrooms each with king sized beds and ensuite washroom to allow guests maximum privacy and can comfortably sleep a group of six. Each bedroom has its own lounging patio along with wardrobe closets. The master bedroom overlooks the Caribbean Sea while the two other bedrooms overlook the villa gardens. The rooms can be made with single beds if requested in advance.

Additionally, the villa has a loft over the living room that can be used to sleep two however we would recommend that they be in their teenage years to allow maximum comfort. In addition to the three bedrooms, the house provides areas for group gathering and entertainment such as the elegant terra cotta living and dining rooms which face the sea. The living room opens up to a 40 foot open teak deck that highlights the beauty of the Pitons where guests can enjoy the breeze while watching the boats pass by. The dining room offers a table that seats a party of six and is a great spot for enjoying amazing Caribbean dinners that can be requested through the house cook,Stephanie, for a nominal fee. For a change of scenery, breakfast can be enjoyed down by the cabana where a table setting allows you to ease into your day while listening to the waterfall hit the pool.

Words could never properly prepare you for the beauty that is Saint Lucia – come experience La Batterie and elevate your vacation to the next level!

Return to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to La Batterie. Our first trip was so wonderful that we booked again as soon as we got home. This time we stayed for 10 days and invited a different group of friends to join us. I speak for all of us when I say this vacation was "perfect" in every way. The staff felt like family from the moment we arrived. Thanks to each and everyone of them we were able to have a true island experience. Clavie made certain we saw the entire island, enjoyed meals at local restaurants, shopped for fresh vegetables, fresh fish and Piton Beer(s). I think we went up and down that rugged mountain road at least 15 times and we felt safe every time. Stephanie is always smiling and a joy to be around. By the way, just in case you read this Stephanie, I loved your hair : ) and thanks for taking over on Louise's braids. Stefanie is a pro when it comes to shopping and cooking. We counted on her expertise to cut and fillet the fish which we later grilled We spent time with Terry roasting fresh picked coffee beans, selecting herbs, birding, sharing food, cooking tips and life stories. We will always refer to him as a friend. BK took care of us and the villa each night. He was always at the gate to greet us upon our return, outdoor lights on and a flashlight in hand ready to assist. Marilyn takes pride in her work and keeps the Villa sparkling clean. She is a sweet shy woman.

Now, about us........we spent a ton of time down at the pool. This beautiful salt water pool is our favorite pool in the entire world. It feels like you are in the middle of a jungle. Every view is breath taking.

If we weren't at the pool you would find us on the deck enjoying the million dollar view. The Pitons are etched in our souls forever. Morning coffee will never be the same.

Orlando's is a must in our opinion. A treat to the palate. Make a reservation for dinner.

I recommend this Villa and the local experience that goes with it to those who want to skip the resorts and crowds.

I have rented properties all over the world and this one is among my favorites. The owners are everything you would hope for and always a text, email or phone call away.

Thank you to Michael, Jennifer, Clavie, Stephanie, Terry, Marilyn, BK and Frances.

We will remember all of you with great fondness.

Out of this World

  • 5 of 5

La Batterie holds a special place in my heart. There are so many factors that contribute to the originality and beauty of this villa. This was my second stay and yet again, amazing.

The view is unforgettable and cannot be described in words. Every morning I would wake up to the Piton Mountains and glistening Caribbean Sea with a nice cup of Saint Lucian coffee - pure bliss. La Batterie has the best view on the island, hands-down.

The gardens are exquisite and unique. During my stay, I noticed a new flower, plant or tree every single day. The pool is spectacular. There is a waterfall feature that creates a beautiful backdrop for reading and relaxing. I spent a lot of time by the pool and loved every minute.

The bedrooms at La Batterie are charming and spacious. They also each have a private balcony. The deck off of the living room is my favorite spot inside the house. During my stay we started and ended the day on the deck.

Last but not least, the staff at La Batterie make the experience one-of-a-kind. They are wonderful, hospitable and courteous. They ensure everything is perfect and take care of everything from washing linens to cooking home made dinners - highly recommend! It is evident that the owners and staff put their heart into this villa.

As always, I am deeply grateful for my time at La Batterie and I look forward to another visit in the future. This villa truly is my version of paradise.

Beautiful villa, beautiful island, great people

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at La Batterie. The villa is perfectly situated overlooking the Caribbean and the Pitons. There was ample space for four adults and three children. The villa is well maintained and has everything one would need for a week in paradise. The villa is just a few minutes drive from Soufriere so access to food and activities is close by. Some of the best beaches (and snorkeling) are in the area.

The staff at La Batterie is amazing. Stephanie ensured we had delicious meals made from local ingredients every night. She worked with our dietary needs and made some fantastic locally inspired dishes. Marilyn did a great job helping us keep the villa tidy so we could come back after a day of fun and relax. B.K. checked on us at night and was available should anything come up. Terry maintains an immaculate garden and shared his passion and knowledge with us (be sure to try some of his locally grown and roasted coffee!).

The owners are fantastic communicators. They made sure everything was set before our arrival and always responded quickly. They provide a lot information upfront to ensure your stay is enjoyable.

We had a fantastic week and hope to return some time. Thanks to the staff at La Batterie for making us feel welcome

Absolutely Incredible! Six stars!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented houses throughout the Caribbean and LaBatterie is the most amazing place we have ever stayed. First, the views are unbelievable. Sunrises and Sunsets with the Pitons are fantastic. We had such a terrific week I can’t say enough. Right from the beginning when we reserved the villa, the owners, Michael and Jennifer were extremely helpful and responsive. I barely had my email completed and they had already returned with information and suggestions

The villa is outfitted with everything you could need, including converters for our US computer and outlets we could use to charge our phones. The Wifi worked extremely well, which is amazing for the Caribbean.

The staff as has been mentioned are wonderful in every possible way. The villa was always clean and an abundance of fresh towels available. We took advantage of the wonderful cooking of Stephanie and she made our dinners every night. After a day out and about we were happy to stay in for dinner. We had fish creole, chicken roti, grilled chicken, grilled fish with coconut rice - her cooking was definitely 5 star. She also did whatever grocery shopping that we needed so we didn’t have to bother to go to the store.

Although we didn’t go out to dinner, we had lunch twice at Fedos in town on our way back from our adventures and we were lucky to have Clavie join us one time, and Terry and Marcus (another driver) join us for lunch on the second day. We had traditional local meals and for 6 of us we spent US$50.

Clavie drove us wherever we wanted to go- we were so grateful not to be driving. Not only because it was treacherous, but we never would have found many of the places. We loved the hike up Tet Paul Nature Trail with the amazing views. One day we got Terry to take us on a hike (4 hours total) to the Edmond Forest Reserve where we were hoping to see the St Lucia Parrot. It happened to pour rain the whole time we were there and it was very wet and muddy but we still enjoyed it. The next day, one of our party who is a birder went back up to the Forest Reserve with Terry and found the Parrot and the St Lucia Oriole.

We spent several days on the beach at Anse Mamin which was beautiful and the little grill restaurant there on the beach has fabulous burgers and fries. We also snorkeled at Anse Chastenet which was pretty good.

Don’t even consider any other place besides LaBatterie. The absolute perfect place for a family vacation.

Amazing Holiday - Gorgeous Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on holiday. The views were amazing. Completely incredible!

The staff were all wonderful – Stephanie cooked for us most days and it was delicious. The villa was very clean everyday. The staff were lovely about doing a bit of shopping for us and bringing it up for us. Everything at the villa worked and was well extremely well maintained. We went to the beach at Anse Mamin and loved almost having it to ourselves and we got a boat to sugar beach which was a fun experience. We really loved our stay and we're very glad we had picked this villa over a hotel or other villas. Thank you so much for all your help, we were seriously impressed with your response times on all our queries. We hope that we are able to make it back next year!

Special Place and Very Special People

  • 5 of 5

The location of La Batterie Villa is the initial Wow Factor. After settling into the villa, the experience rises past that initial response to one of deep appreciation for the staff who support your daily needs while there and their culture and history. They are the jewels of St Lucia. The history of the Villa and its location are steeped literally upon the edge of the Soufrierre volcanic cauldron enriching ones understanding of the geologic formation that is the Carribbean and its part in the continually evolving story of planet Earth.

The owners of this property are to be applauded for their generosity to others in sharing this property with the world and in supporting the employment of the persons of Soufrierre whose life stories are entwined with it. Much appreciation to them!!!!
