A two-storey villa off of the Anse Chastanet road in the beautiful Soufriere region of St Lucia. With southwest facing views, the soaring Pitons are a constant sight, and on a clear day you can even see the neighbouring island of St Vincent out across the azure blue waters.
Completely reconstructed in 1999, with wooden floors, Italian tiled bathrooms and antique items and furnishings throughout. The total liveable space is 5400 square-feet. The gardens around the property have been planted with an array of colourful flowers, blossoms, lilies and bamboo.
Guests have use of the tennis court found at the owner’s house next door. The beautiful Anse Chastanet beach is a short drive away and has superb diving and snorkelling as part of a protected marine park. The south of the island is full of natural beauty, including sulphur springs, botanical gardens, mineral baths and of course the famous Piton Mountains, which form part of a World Heritage Site. This makes the villa ideal for those who appreciate the natural world.
