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!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to really explain to people the beauty of this villa, and the staff! This country is beautiful and the villa is in an area of St Lucia that is so untouched .. The rain forest is beautiful and the grounds manager at the Villa will take you into the rain forest if you want .. The Driver at the villa has so much information and he knows everyone .. I would never rent a car in St Lucia the roads are so narrow and they drive on opposite side of road making it difficult .. Clavie is definitely the way to go when you want to get around .. Stephanie is the cook and let me tell you her cooking is incredible.. there are three villa staff that clean everyday .. they even did the laundry.. It's something I would never expect and I truly appreciated all their hard work .. The views at the villa are incredible .. The number one thing to do in st Lucia is to see the Pitons and you get to see them everyday from the villa .. the pool is amazing and is such a blessing after coming back from the beach or any other activity .. we went snorkeling, zip lining , botanical gardens, rain forest, beach , visited the volcano.. it was s great trip .. having the villa to come back to everyday made this trip special.. The owner of the villa answered all of my questions prior to arrival and I had so many . He was great and the staff at the villa speak highly of him which was very important to me .. I wouldn't want to stay somewhere that didn't treat their exceptional staff well ... Great trip .. Amazing Villa .. We hope to be back again ..

For sure the best place in Soufriere !

  • 5 of 5

There is not much we can say that hasn't been said before, but we will say it anyway... We spent two great weeks at the Batterie Villa. 2 adults and 3 children age 9,11, 13. The villa is in perfect condition, well equipped with a bathroom for each room. The garden is beautiful and the view breathtaking. The pool is great and we enjoyed relaxing there a lot. It is very big and deep so plenty of space for the kids to play as well.

We really enjoyed that there was the staff... They were all super nice. It was like being at a hotel but with the space and privacy of the villa. Also by talking with them it felt that we got more of a feel of the country than if we had just stayed on our own.

We did ask Stephanie to cook for us and she taught me how to make our favorite meals. She gets the groceries on her way up to the villa and cooks so you have a meal ready for dinner that just needs warming up. It's also a very cost effective option because we found that restaurants on the island were quite expensive (for 5 we never spent more than $50 per meal including Stephanie's fee for cooking). Also that way we got to learn about local fruits and vegetables and enjoyed them (ask about breadfruit pudding !!)

We went on the rainforest walk with Terry the gardener who is very knowledgeable about plants. He also usually came with a mango or two from the garden and some limes... you will want to stay there forever just for the mangoes !!!

A few practical things :

- Be careful with the pool, the edges of the steps are a little sharp (we didn't notice but since our kids play in all kinds of ways we had a few little cuts)

- We went snorkeling and the place is amazing : you can go to anse chastanet (they are not friendly but it's worth it) and swim to the right. we also went down there and swam left back into soufrière and then walked back up. It's a bit more than one hour swim, you need to stay close to the shore to avoid boats and currents but it is really great.

- Our son went diving with Chester (Action Adventure Divers) it was great, he really went out of his way to make him happy ! And even took us bottom fishing !

- We relied on Clavie for transportation. If you stay around Soufriere it is more cost effective and comfortable given the state of the road. We recommend that you agree before hand clearly on what you want and the price.

- The hike is tough at first but you get used to it

Overall fabulous place to enjoy Soufriere. We hope to come back.

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the follow up email and sorry for the delay in responding. It has been difficult for all of us to adjust back to the real world here in the states!

We had an absolute wonderful time at your home on St Lucia. Words and even pictures don't do it justice - the villa and views and accommodations are absolutely amazing. We often had to pinch ourselves each time we looked out over the blue water towards the Pitons as it truly is picture perfect! Each staff member was amazinf and made us feel very welcome and taken care of. Stephanie cooked several Lucian inspired dinners for us and wow were they phenomenal. Our only regret is not having her cook more meals for us - it was very relaxing to come home from a day's outing and have a delicious meal in the oven waiting on us. Clavie did a great job getting us around the island and was available anytime we needed him. Being in an unknown location Clavie made us feel very safe and comfortable and I truly believe he knows everyone on the island! I am very glad we didn't rent a car as Clavie made all of excursions that much better. He is a great person and we really enjoyed getting to know him better. Terry does a great job tending to the property and we really enjoyed getting to know him...he is a great man and one of the hardest working men we've met in quite some time. He took us on a fantastic guided tour of the rainforest and waterfall. Marilyn was very kind and was always a joy to be around. We never felt unsafe on the island or at the villa...everyone we met on the island was very friendly and welcoming. It was a nice added benefit to have BK at the house every night. Being a father of two young daughters that was comforting to know he was there.

The walk down the hill to Anse Chastenet beach was very doable and like most other reviewers mentioned the walk up was a bit more challenging. But having the pool to jump into upon our return was perfect.

The beach at Anse Chastanet was more than we could have hoped for! The snorkeling was amazing - best snorkeling I've ever experienced!

You have a wonderful home and we had an amazing vacation - thank you so much for opening it up and allowing others to experience it. We cannot wait to come back!!!

Amazing Girls Trip!!!!

  • 5 of 5

“Mike, Thank you so much for a great time! The girls and I absolutely loved our stay at the villa. It was so beautiful. “The pictures do it absolutely no justice. The villa was BEAUTIFUL and the views are breathtaking. We loved it so much that we ended up canceling a lot of the plans we had so that we could just enjoy the space. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. You didn't lie about Stephanie's amazing cooking! We really enjoyed not having to stress too much about food. Everyone was super accommodating and helpful. From BK, to Marylin, to Clavie, everyone was so nice and really did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our time. We will definitely be coming back! ”

TROPICAL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at La Batterie in Soufriere St. Lucia. We chose to return to this villa for many reasons. We always look forward to seeing the wonderful staff who are there to take care of your needs on vacation. From the moment you open the gates to the property the view is like no other. The immense gardens are simply beautiful. My husband loves sitting on the main deck looking at the blue ocean water and the famous Pitons. My favorite is the amazing salt water pool. So easy to spend the complete day by the pool, walk to the beach or check out the lunch and dinner places. It was a marvelous relaxing stay at La Batterie and hope to return again.

Amazing Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

“My family and I ( 5 adults, 2 children) have just returned from a wonderful vacation in St. Lucia where we stayed at the beautiful villa, La Batterie. With its fabulous views of the Pitons, access to beaches, the town of Soufriere, and other places of interest, the location could not have been better. The villa itself is large, attractively furnished, and opens to large decks from living area and all bedrooms. The grounds include a pool, fish pond, and beautiful gardens, providing a real tropical paradise. The staff at La Batterie is exceptional and truly spoil the guests. Stephanie and Marilyn keep the villa spotless and Stephanie's meals are hard to beat, especially her shrimp curry! She even baked a birthday cake for one of us - no need to go out after a tiring day touring or on the beach. Terry and BK take care of the property and watch over guests and the villa at night. Clavie, provides excellent transportation services. Known as the "mayor" of the area, he can offer suggestions of places to go or things to do, help you get there or give you directions. His services are especially helpful when going to and from the airport. We have stayed at a number of homes in the US, Europe, and other places, and this is by far the most beautiful one yet. Would love to come back!”
