In the Divine Comedy Dante and Virgil have to go through Hell and climb the Mount of Purgatory to get to the Earthly Paradise, but all we had to do was take a plane from Toronto. And La Sirene really is an earthly paradise: the the villa itself is beautiful both inside and out; it is surrounded by lush and colourful gardens; and it offers magnificent views of the classically turquoise water of the Caribbean, not least from the jacuzzi on the hillside between the villa and the water. I could go on for paragraphs about all the things that we enjoyed during our stay at La Sirene, but I will mention only a few: the villa is brilliantly laid out and furnished with chairs and sofas that are both elegant and extremely comfortable; the kitchen is perfectly arranged and contains everything that any cook could possibly need; the bathrooms are crisply modern and impeccably clean; the beds are cosy and the bedding both elegant and appropriate to the climate; the bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans that make air conditioning utterly unnecessary; the infinity pool is excellent for doing laps, and the sea/ocean is easy to enter and exit down either a ladder or a flight of stairs. And then there is the art -- an eclectic array of paintings and sculptures that delight the eye and continually intrigue. We did not just dread leaving La Sirene, we never left except to shop, primarily at the superb IGA ten minutes away and Caicos Bakery in Port of Call (which is run by a young couple from Paris) so that we could avoid going out for dinner (we succeeded) and enjoy the villa to the utmost. Finally, the owner of La Sirene, Roger (alas we did not meet Siri), is the most genial host one can possibly imagine -- thoughtful, generous, and never intrusive, but always eager to provide advice and deal quickly with any problem that might arise. We have been fortunate enough to stay in several villas in the Caribbean and elsewhere over the years, and La Sirene takes the gold for its location, its practicality, its beauty, and its serenity (or is that Sirenity?).
