Overview

Soufriere Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Full Kitchen, Living Area, Private Pool, Barbecue

There are a few places on earth where a single house, the work of a gifted and original spirit, captures and expresses its surroundings so perfectly that it seems almost to have emerged right out of the landscape itself.

Villa Pitons Retreat is one of those rare homes. Built high on a hilly knoll near the village of Morne La Croix, the house was once the private residence of the remarkable American interior designer, architect and yachtsman John DiPol, who in the 1960s put down roots in St. Lucia and went on to build the world-famous Ladera Resort between St. Lucia's landmark Pitons with its awesome open design and 'infinity' pool. Villa Pitons Retreat carries the open design concept to amazing effect in complete privacy...discretely served by a dedicated staff of two.

The house makes the absolute most of its awesome natural surroundings. Every suite is open to view the emerald bay of Anse des Pitons- a World Heritage Site. Outside, with its low roofs and louvered folding doors along the frontage, it has the subtly lit, yet imposing privacy, of an old French plantation villa. In fact, it's built onto an old mill.

nside, the light of the Caribbean plays among deep recesses shaped by the gray granite of St. Lucia's volcanic geology and cedar woodwork from the island's ancient rain forest. All of which is brightened by the genius of traditional Italian tile masons. Each floor is a visual masterpiece, where earth-red clay squares lay the ground for stunning original inlays - a coat of arms, the Southern Cross, a giant octopus crowning a seaworld shower. The tiles continue to inspire and amaze outside, where the pool terrace is emblazoned with a comet trailing through stars.

The villa's Old World and Caribbean nuances come together in the kitchen, where blue-green tiled counters, breadfruit-wood cabinets, rustic surfaces and stained-glass windows add visual flavor to its impressive modern appointments, including double-door fridge, and a full-size commercial range fit for the most discriminating culinary creations.

The master bedroom suite has its own bathroom, twin ceramic sinks and dressing room. Two guest bedrooms share an adjoining bathroom with a large tiled walk-in shower. Each bedroom has a queen-size four-poster bed. Another bathroom with shower next to the game room can be reached from either guest room whenever the shared bathroom is occupied.

Villa Pitons Retreat is a place for travelers who really wish to get away. To preserve its seclusion and intimacy, the house has no land line telephone. We'll provide you a cell phone to access the outside world and the staff. The villa has a TV-DVD system which will allow you to watch movies and play your CD's. There is also an iPod compatibility switch which you can use.

Amazing private get-away

  • 5 of 5

The moment you open the front door, you will immediately say "Wow!" as your eyes absorb an incredible view of the Caribbean Ocean and the twin Pitons through the open-air design of the Villa Pitons Retreat. If you're looking for a quiet, private get-away with spectacular views and a unique setting, this is the place. The villa has some great architecture features, including custom designed tile work, a mote flowing from the pool into the villa and the castle-like look of the house -- especially the master sleeping quarters. The back of the villa with the pool, patio, beautiful grounds and one-of-a-kind view, all adds up to what is truly a private retreat overlooking God's incredible creation. Mary, the housekeeper, and Gregory, the pool/groundskeeper, are both friendly and accommodating to your schedule. We also had Mary cook two authentic St. Lucian meals which were excellent. There's several good nearby restaurants, beach, snorkeling and hiking -- so activities are available if you can tear yourself away from the villa.

Villa Pitons

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to many places around the globe and the Villa Pitons is one of my favorite places.

You feel so relaxed and most all of your creature comforts of home are provided for you. It’s nice and quiet and you get a home feeling as opposed to the resort feel. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Wonderful Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa Des Pitons for six nights. We loved it here! The view is unbelievable - the best we found on the island. It is a very relaxing place to stay and we spent a lot of time at the house just enjoying the view and the pool. Mary, the housekeeper, made the trip very enjoyable. She and her daughter cooked for us on two separate nights. The food was great and they were a joy to talk to - they told us a lot about life on St Lucia. The beaches in this area are good for snorkeling and the water is crystal clear. We highly recommend staying at the Villa Des Pitons and hope to return in the future with our family.
