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!

Relaxing++++

  • 5 of 5

La Batterie is everything promised and more. The view is incredible and we wish we were back right now enjoying coffee or a cocktail on the porch! The weather was a constant and wonderful temperature with a breeze that kept away bugs and kept the air pleasant. The beach was an easy walk down the hill one way and town an easy walk the other way. Be sure to check out Orlando's Restaurant in town; we had a fantastic meal there.

The staff excelled in all aspects--driving, meals, cleaning, care taking, etc. They were pleasant and professional and willing to accommodate all of our requests. We had a minor problem with the shower and it was fixed that day. Would definitely recommend using Clavie for driving as the roads are hilly and winding. The roads would be difficult to navigate at any time, but especially while driving on the "wrong" side of the road!

One thing to know is that the house is quite open and therefore affords little privacy from conversation in the bedrooms or elsewhere in the house.

We had a wonderful stay and hope to be back soon!

Amazing stay at La Batterie Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly amazing experience at La Batterie Villa. The villa and the staff could not have been better. Everyone went above and beyond. Michael and Jennifer were very helpful and quick to answer any of our questions prior to the trip. The villa staff - Stephanie, Terry, BK, Clavie, Marilyn and Bibiana were all great. I highly recommend Stephanie's cooking. She made most of our dinners and they were all incredible. There are no words to describe the views and the environment surrounding La Batterie. We are already making plans to return.

The Stellar Caribbean experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 included 2 recently college graduated kids and their uncle. Throughout the years we have stayed at many places throughout the Caribbean and our kids commented that this was the very best of all. We can't say enough about this villa, staff, and owners. From the beginning Jennifer was only a quick email away to answer any questions and handle the reservation details. Everything about the villa itself is above a 5* but we particularly loved the view (naturally) and the pool area. It was a place of family bonding and great fun. Other reviews will say the same. Normally when we travel via VRBO we do our own cooking, but this week we had Stephanie cook all our dinners. They were delicious and such a joy to have it prepared to enjoy whenever we were ready. Every night we enjoyed the wifi and had a family movie. We used the tablecloth as a screen and the projector adapter on one of our androids and bluetooth audio, allowed us a full sized movie at night. Really great fun. My son and I scuba'd with St. Lucia divers down the hill two days. Highly recommend. The guys ran Gross Piton in record time according to Clavie (less than 3 hours). Our only recommendation for future guests it to bring plenty of cash in 20's..... credit cards are used on the island but to pay for car, cooking, staff tips etc, cash is needed. We did not rent a car but decided to use Clavie which was perfect. We more than HIGHLY recommend this villa. Thank you for a wonderful 60th birthday!!

Perfect and relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

“We have had the most wonderful few days here with our family. We were given a wonderful welcome, what a beautiful place and spot. The view.....we could never tire of!!. Staying at La Batterie for a few nights has been a truly perfect way to end our holiday here in St Lucia. No pictures or photos can do justice to the spectacular view that greets you as soon as you set foot through the gateway leading to the house. A beautiful house, beautifully furnished with a very friendly team at hand to offer their help, producing local dishes on request. We returned home super relaxed and with the most delicious locally roasted coffee beans!! We hope to return one day.....We would and will recommend La Batterie to friends and family and hope to return one day. Thank you so much for sharing your home. Best wishes Richard, Clare, Molly, Nancy, Sam, Will & Jack.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to really explain to people the beauty of this villa, and the staff! This country is beautiful and the villa is in an area of St Lucia that is so untouched .. The rain forest is beautiful and the grounds manager at the Villa will take you into the rain forest if you want .. The Driver at the villa has so much information and he knows everyone .. I would never rent a car in St Lucia the roads are so narrow and they drive on opposite side of road making it difficult .. Clavie is definitely the way to go when you want to get around .. Stephanie is the cook and let me tell you her cooking is incredible.. there are three villa staff that clean everyday .. they even did the laundry.. It's something I would never expect and I truly appreciated all their hard work .. The views at the villa are incredible .. The number one thing to do in st Lucia is to see the Pitons and you get to see them everyday from the villa .. the pool is amazing and is such a blessing after coming back from the beach or any other activity .. we went snorkeling, zip lining , botanical gardens, rain forest, beach , visited the volcano.. it was s great trip .. having the villa to come back to everyday made this trip special.. The owner of the villa answered all of my questions prior to arrival and I had so many . He was great and the staff at the villa speak highly of him which was very important to me .. I wouldn't want to stay somewhere that didn't treat their exceptional staff well ... Great trip .. Amazing Villa .. We hope to be back again ..

For sure the best place in Soufriere !

  • 5 of 5

There is not much we can say that hasn't been said before, but we will say it anyway... We spent two great weeks at the Batterie Villa. 2 adults and 3 children age 9,11, 13. The villa is in perfect condition, well equipped with a bathroom for each room. The garden is beautiful and the view breathtaking. The pool is great and we enjoyed relaxing there a lot. It is very big and deep so plenty of space for the kids to play as well.

We really enjoyed that there was the staff... They were all super nice. It was like being at a hotel but with the space and privacy of the villa. Also by talking with them it felt that we got more of a feel of the country than if we had just stayed on our own.

We did ask Stephanie to cook for us and she taught me how to make our favorite meals. She gets the groceries on her way up to the villa and cooks so you have a meal ready for dinner that just needs warming up. It's also a very cost effective option because we found that restaurants on the island were quite expensive (for 5 we never spent more than $50 per meal including Stephanie's fee for cooking). Also that way we got to learn about local fruits and vegetables and enjoyed them (ask about breadfruit pudding !!)

We went on the rainforest walk with Terry the gardener who is very knowledgeable about plants. He also usually came with a mango or two from the garden and some limes... you will want to stay there forever just for the mangoes !!!

A few practical things :

- Be careful with the pool, the edges of the steps are a little sharp (we didn't notice but since our kids play in all kinds of ways we had a few little cuts)

- We went snorkeling and the place is amazing : you can go to anse chastanet (they are not friendly but it's worth it) and swim to the right. we also went down there and swam left back into soufrière and then walked back up. It's a bit more than one hour swim, you need to stay close to the shore to avoid boats and currents but it is really great.

- Our son went diving with Chester (Action Adventure Divers) it was great, he really went out of his way to make him happy ! And even took us bottom fishing !

- We relied on Clavie for transportation. If you stay around Soufriere it is more cost effective and comfortable given the state of the road. We recommend that you agree before hand clearly on what you want and the price.

- The hike is tough at first but you get used to it

Overall fabulous place to enjoy Soufriere. We hope to come back.
