Location: Le Gallerie occupies one of the most stunning locations in the West Indies. Perched on a promontory called Lookout Point, 300 feet above the Caribbean Sea, it faces due south to the majestic Pitons. The view is breathtaking, extending 180 degrees from Soufriere Bay, across the Pitons, St Vincent and around to the setting sun in the west.
Clouds drifting in from the Atlantic on the eastern side of the island can produce ever changing light conditions to illuminate the Pitons as they rise 2,500 feet out of the clear sea, the colour of which varies from brilliant turquoise to deep blue.
This most amazing and dynamic of panoramas provides a magnificent backdrop for the beautiful and charming house, making it a wonderful place to entertain, relax and unwind.
Space to relax and unwind: The magnificent living areas provide ample space for entertaining or quiet corners for peace and quiet to read and unwind. The gargantuan (60” x 30”) sitting room has a polished hardwood floor and large white sofas.

Diving instruction is available from the beach by a wonderful diving instructor.
Around the town are attractions such as the Piton Water Fall and the lava springs (the only drive through volcano in the world). Beyond the town is the rain forest, which remains pretty much unchanged for 100,000 years, the more rugged Atlantic cost and other coastal villages to visit.
