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!

Absolutely amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we started planning this trip to the very end of the trip it was spectacular and exceeded all of our expectations!

We had never been to St Lucia so we had lots of questions before we booked La Batterie. All of our questions were answered promptly with great enthusiasm!

We were greeted by Clavie, the driver when we landed and he was so knowledgeable about the island and so friendly. He drove us on all of our adventures and was amazing and very punctual. The views driving to the property were breathtaking!

Once we arrived at La Batterie we were greeted by Stephanie and her team and they were so friendly and made us wonderful meals for the week. The views from the balcony are unbelievable. It is picture perfect and we have been asked by friends if the pictures we posted are " real"- the views are that magnificent!

The grounds are beautiful on the property and the pool provided many hours of entertainment for our kids after we got home from the beach. The snorkeling is the best we have ever experienced and even saw a sea turtle!

BK was the night guard of the property and such a nice guy and always checked in on us. The entire staff was amazing.

La Batterie is a vacation our family will remember for years to come! It was outstanding!

Amazing vaction with unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

From the start of booking this vaction to the end, everything was spectacular. Prior to booking La Batterie we had many questions and every question was answered and we were given lots of infromation regarding the property as well as the island.

We were met at the airport by Clavie, the driver, who was so friendly and knew so many great facts of the island. The drive was full of breathtaking views. Once at the house we were greeted by Stephanie and her team. They were so friendly and eager to make our stay wonderful. The food that was prepared on a daily basis was amazing. The grounds are beautiful with an amazing pool and the views from the balcony are out of this world. Hoenstly, we have been asked numerous times after our vaction if the pictures were "real"...the views are that amazing! BK is the night watch guard is so nice and friendly. We loved everything about this trip. The snorkeling is the best we have ever experienced and even saw a giant sea turtle.

La Batterie is beyond wonderful. It was such a memorable vacation for our family. La Batterie will be a wonderful vacation for anyone that goes!

Beautiful house with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best time, in large part due to the accommodations at La Batterie. The spectacular views made for relaxing and peaceful mornings, coffee in hand (freshly roasted by one of the groundsmen). The people working at the house were so polite and helpful. We also used the cook on site, in which she prepared various delicious home cooked meals that made the trip that much sweeter.

We spent much time at the nearby beach, which involved a moderately challenging hike, enjoying burgers at the resort restaurant, snorkeling, and relaxing. We used the house driver for any outside excursions during the day.

Overall, it was one of the best vacations we have taken so far. It also comfortably housed my family of four and my in laws for one week. Thank you La Batterie for an amazing spring break vacation!

BEAUTIFUL, FRIENDLY and EXOTIC!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared the Villa with two old friends March 7th -14th 2017 and we all had the time of our lives! The home is a perfect mind's eye version of a secluded, exotic tropical retreat with gorgeous views that are beyond compare. The owners are reliable, friendly, at your service, and easy to communicate with - it is obvious they and care about the Villa and it's guests very much. The staff - who clean for you and cook for you (if you wish) and watch over the property are all wonderful folks. Stephanie, Miss Marilyn, BK and Terry all know what you need or want before you do! Stephanie is a dream chef and can whip up local dishes that are to die for!! She has a great sense of humor and I jokingly begged her to come to Chicago twice a week to take care of us and cook! She replied that she'd would be happy to do so and that all she needed was a private jet!!! Miss Marilyn is sweet and kind, and BK and Terry are friendly, very helpful, and warm hearted guys. The staff are never intrusive but are there to assist you with anything that you desire. In a word, they are perfect. Terry has many skills, and roasts his own coffee beans before your eyes! No review of the Villa would be complete without mentioning the Clavie - the "Mayor of Soufriere"!! He is the the Driver-In-Chief who will take you anywhere, anytime, all around the Island. He is a special soul, and knows so much about the history of St. Lucia. He knows practically everyone on the Island and is clearly beloved! We miss him! It is a short 5 minute walk down the road to the beach by the Jade Mountain resort (Anse Chastenet). The water is beautiful. You can meet your snorkeling boat tours there if that's in your plans. If you want a special experience, then go right when you get down to the beach and keep walking along a water front path a much smaller but stunning beach (Anse Maman) - you will not regret it! Clavie will be more than happy to bring you back up from the beach - he is always just a phone call away! We hired Sugar Boat Charters (ask for the young Capt. Mario) for a private snorkeling and swim tour - you should too. It was a fantastic adventure! In short, our experience was fun, adventurous and luxurious, but not fussy or touristy (like staying at a resort). I recommend this Villa, the owners and the staff without any hesitation. There were no "cons" on our vacation and stay at La Batterie Villa.

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.
