Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom suites with full Bathrooms attached each with its own private deck.

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!

Best place on St. Lucia - Gorgeous Views & Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot accurately describe our visit to La Batterie Villa for our 20th wedding anniversary. We didn't want to leave the Villa while on the island nor when our time was up! We spent the majority of our week staying on property - why? - because there is no reason to leave! They have the best staff that is top notch - they are there to make everything during your visit the best, yet they give you your privacy and space at the same time. We would be up early to watch the beautiful sunset from one of the many decks/viewing spots and then spend the rest of the day/evening on one of the many decks, in the hammock, on the couch, or one of the many lounge chairs around the home and just enjoy the beautiful views and scenery of the forest, Pitons, boats, and the Atlantic Ocean....and throughout the day (many days multiple times) we'd go down to the GORGEOUS pool area surrounded by the luscious and beautiful gardens, native trees/plants, palm trees, and mango trees. Seriously, don't look at any other places to stay my friends - THIS IS IT. We are already chatting with our family and friends of when our next trip to La Batterie Villa will be!

And the VALUE......Nowhere in the world have we ever felt that we got more out of the investment into a stay on any property we have ever visited, whether that be a hotel, villa, apartment/condo, house, etc. There just isn't a better value - especially because we picked St. Lucia for the views of the Pitons and La Batterie Villa has the best views of the Pitons on the island in our opinion. Don't hesitate on this choice as you will be missing out on one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in the world!

Glorious Week at La Batterie!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we stayed at La Batterie for another fantastic week. I have been to St. Lucia for 12 consecutive years and stayed at Anse Chastanet initially but then 8 years ago I found Batterie. The owner takes care of every detail in advance and the staff is incredible. Stephanie will cook you breakfast and dinner if you like so take advantage of her delicious creole cooking! Terry the groundskeeper is also there to bring you fresh-picked coffee beans. The views of the Pitons from the deck and feel of the house are unmatched in Soufriere area. Much better than staying at a hotel. We already booked our return in 2019! Steve F (Attorney - Scottsdale, AZ)

Cannot wait to come back!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know if I can add anything more to what has already been said about this amazing villa but I can echo the other sentiments left. Renting a home can be hit or miss and I have fairly high standards, so am often disappointed. However, there was nothing disappointing about our stay at La Batterie. Everything was amazing, beyond even my highest hopes. Beginning with my first contact with Mike and all the way through the return home follow up. I am blown away at what an amazing, special place we were lucky enough to find. I will never forget the fabulous people that keep this villa running everyday. Stefanie, Terry, BK, Clavie...everyone was fantastic and I am so happy to have met them. It's true that Stefanie makes delicious meals, and our family (including 2 picky toddlers) happily enjoyed a prepared dinner every night. Stefanie is a professional and acts as a house manager. I was thoroughly impressed. Clavie is friendly, fairly priced and we felt in good hands with him from the moment he greeted us at the airport. Terry has a special place in our families memories of our trip. He is such a great man, and has a wealth of knowledge. Take the time to learn something from him about the stunningly beautiful grounds, you will not be disappointed. The view is beyond words. All I can say when regaling friends with tales from our time away is that it is so unbelievably beautiful there, that it didn't seem real. It was truly awe inspiring. Mike as a host has set the bar. He is the gold standard. His detailed, thoughtful communication is second to none. I could go on and on for pages of glowing praise. I really feel blessed to have had the opportunity to stay at La Batterie and have the unique experiences we did. My husband and I are already talking about going back again and of course staying again at this brilliant gem of a villa. If you treasure beauty and kindness as well as unique adventures, do not hesitate to book this very special place.

Amazing. Stay here.

  • 5 of 5

The view, property and staff better than describe as you can't capture the feeling of being there in words. Perfect amazing trip. I would not rent a car and only use Clavie's services. The roads are very sketchy and they drive on the "wrong" side of the road. The only time we didn't use Clavie, we walked to the beach and took a water taxi (several parked at the beach all the time) to see the bat cave and sugar beach (Miss BeBe's daughter works there - both are sweethearts). Very fun boat ride. We had Stephanie cook all of our meals and it was a real treat. BK and Marilyn are a quiet reassuring presence. Terry will become "an old family friend". Michael the owner is amazing, answered all of our questions within an hour for every email. Now I will talk about the things I was nervous about before we went...the mosquitoes are not a problem at the Villa (end of March). We had a few bites at dusk, but nothing more than Northern Michigan in the summer. We felt very safe on the island and were treated very kindly every where we went. Our 17 year old son played a spontaneous game of street soccer with the locals on our way from the rain forest (guided by Terry). We zip lined, visited the volcano and mud baths. We hiked the Pitons - very challenging and rewarding. We stayed on the South end of the Island the whole time and had plenty to do. We were told repeatedly it was challenging and time consuming to get from one side of the island to the other...however if we had more time, we would taken the water taxi to the North side as a fun boat ride and to avoid the traffic. The walk to the beach is an easy ten minutes and uphill 15 minutes back. You will need more cash than you anticipate - tips are appreciated and there are "vendors" everywhere you go; however the tours take credit cards. There are ATMs in town that disperse EC dollars. Make sure you have the rental agreement and tell customs you are staying at Anse Chastanet. You will have a problem getting through customs if you say La Batterie as each Customs Officer is not familiar with Villa names. Overall this trip was by far the best Caribbean experience we've had.

Memories that will last a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing experience at La Batterie and the beautiful island of St. Lucia! Our family of five recently returned home and are missing waking up to the majestic Piton Mountains, incredible staff, and gorgeous surroundings of the island. Mike has been a top notch host every step of the way...from vacation planning, logistics, and every possible detail you could think of to make our experience seamless and memorable!

La Batterie is a special villa in every sense and the views are breathtaking! You simply can't put words around the first time the front gate opens and you realize the little piece of paradise you are fortunate enough to be part of for a snapshot in time. The open air villa is nestled in with nature, clean, unique, spacious, and very well kept. Mike clearly takes tremendous pride in this gem of a property on the island. And again, the views! If you are reading this review, you likely have looked at the pictures as well. It is every bit as gorgeous as you would imagine and then some. The expansive decking in the main living area and the master bedroom all look out to the infamous Piton Mountains that St. Lucia is notorious for! Waking up each morning and enjoying a cup of coffee overlooking the Pitons never gets old.

The staff a La Batterie are as beautiful as the villa itself. I don't think we had an appreciation for how incredible the service would be and how much of an impact everyone would have on our hearts and vacation experience. Clavie "the Mayor" knows everyone and everything about the island. He made a special connection with our youngest, who is six years old and we just had a blast with him. Amazing person and I would highly recommend taking advantage of Clavie to get around the island. Stephanie is the house manager and chef and is also just incredible. She is a fantastic cook and made us dinner two of our nights there. My daughter celebrated her 14th birthday during our stay and Stephanie made her a chocolate cake and had balloons and a sign hung when we returned from a beach day...almost brought us to tears. Very special. The grounds and flowers around La Batterie are stunning thanks to Terry the gardener. He spent hours each day manicuring the property and tending to the natural beauty of the surroundings. Needless to say, this staff is second to none and we made friendships that will last a lifetime. We made memories to last a lifetime at La Batterie and St. Lucia. We would highly recommend this villa !!
