Located near Soufrieres Anse Chastanet beach, La Bagatelle is perfect for those who appreciate lovely natural surroundings and refined touches. Lush green gardens surround this beautiful two-storey villa, while colorful bougainvillea, poinsettias, vincas, and thunbergia climb and hang from all parts of the home. The famous Pitons are in plain sight as is the tranquil blue water of the Caribbean.
Start each day sipping a coffee in a wicker chair on the upstairs porch, watching fishing boats sail off. As the sun warms, head down to the clay-tiled pool terrace and bask in a cozy chaise longue, then cool off with an invigorating plunge. Sizzle up fresh seafood on the outdoor grill and enjoy it all fresco. A hammock and four-poster day bed are perfect escapes from the mid-afternoon heat. At dusk gather your guests around the outdoor lounge set and observe a stunning St. Lucia sunset.
The spacious living room is furnished with soft settees, upholstered with designer fabrics and large cushions. Gentle breezes circulate freely courtesy of louver windows and doors. The same smooth greenheart wood which makes up the upper balcony also lines the interior floors. A fully-equipped kitchen will inspire you to create something special for your guests. Enjoy the fruits of your labor around an elegant dining table.
Both of La Bagatelles bedrooms are found downstairs. The Master suite has a West Indian King size four-poster bed, antique wood furnishings and a stylish en-suite bathroom with Italian tiled shower. The second bedroom houses two additional four-poster beds: Double and Queen size. It also features antique furniture, plus an en-suite bathroom with double sinks. Ceiling fans cool both rooms.
Youre free to use a tennis court located below the house. Anse Chastanet beach is a five minute drive and has diving facilities and a protected marine park for snorkeling. Soufriere is close to St. Lucias most spectacular natural features: Pitons, Sulphur Springs, botanical gardens, and hidden waterfalls. Shops and restaurants can be found in town, though serious shoppers may opt for a daytrip to Rodney Bay.

Beautiful house perched on the hills overlooking the Soufriere Bay and opposite the magnificent Pitons. Staff very satisfactory. Recommended nature guide (Murray) was a true jewel. The drive up and down the hill was an adventure in itself. The tennis court was a wonderful activity to have available. An embarrassment of choices in terms of activities - trekking to the top of Gros Piton, Sulphur Springs, guided nature trails. But most importantly, the house and its pool were an oasis of relaxation.
Our stay at the villa La Bagatelle was incredible and absolutely honeymoon-worthy! The villa was exactly as described and even better than we imagined in our pre-holiday dreams. The view is breathtaking, the best on the island, right there from the balcony - we just never tired of it! The villa is very well taken care of, cosy but stylish, the service is great (housekeeping, gardening and cooking is included - we opted for that every other day), the pool is just perfect for a refreshing dip when it gets too hot and the hammock and day bed are the best reading spots in the world. There are no windows, but it's always warm and comfy and there are shutters in the bedrooms. Birds and frogs and crickets will sing you to sleep every night - bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The drive up to the villa is bumpy but only 10mins from Soufrière. Best area of the island!
My wife and I recently visited the island for a family wedding and stayed at the La Bagatelle rather than at a major resort. It was the best decision we made on the trip. The location is close to many areas of interest and some excellent beaches. The staff prepared delicious meals and the accommodations were spacious comfortable and a joy to come back to. Having the privacy to enjoy the spectacular view and relax with the option of using the pool is exactly what you dream of on a vacation.
We loved the villa and everything about it - amenities, furnishings, artwork, staff, location, view - EVERYTHING!
Along the way, we discovered a taxi company and several drivers whom we enjoyed using so immensely, I have to recommend considering them as drivers for the villa. Saint Lucia Luxury Taxi, 758-722-5559, on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/stlucialuxurytaxi.
We just returned from St. Lucia & La Bagatelle. A beautiful and tranquil retreat! We had the car service pick us up at the airport, which I highly recommend; the roads are very steep and filled with hair pin curves. The villa was more beautiful than the photos can convey. The caretakers, Valinda and Paul were super friendly and we did not feel awkward with them around at all. Valinda cooked us a curry chicken dinner which even my picky teen girls loved. We took a day trip to visit local attractions and used a local taxi driver, Popo. He was very informative, pointing out different plants, explaining island history, and letting us stop to take photos. A true gentleman. It was our first visit to St. Lucia and so memorable. La Bagatelle was perfect in every way. The pool, the antiques, open air living; breath taking ! Apart from our day trip with Popo and one day at Anse Chastanet Beach we were at the Villa, no need to leave. We hope to return to La Bagatelle & St. Lucia
Our first experience with Luxury Retreats was certainly very positive. Prompt answer on our requests and good follow up.We had fantastics holidays in a magic environment and didn't have to worry about anything.
