Recent St. Lucia reviews
"From the minute we stepped into the property the fabulous view took our breath away. We had dinner a few nights before at he Cliff House (similar view), but this was even better. The layout is very livable with the bedrooms removed from the living area to allow privacy for all.
The drive up was a little daunting, but, to be honest we are not used to left hand driving. We did get reasonably comfortable after a while.
The staff (Ivy, Shane, Michael) were very nice to us and unobtrusive. The villa was well maintained by them.
Some small improvements could be made (broken trash can, chair in need of repair); but, all-in we loved staying here and would not hesitate to return."

"We just got back from our stay at La Batterie. AMAZING! Everything about the trip was above and beyond any and all of our expectations.
We decided to hire the staff driver Clavie and did not regret it. Clavie was fantastic with his knowledge of St. Lucia and advice on activities around the island. I would highly recommend using Clavie vs renting a car. Clavie met us at the airport and took us to the grocery story ( even though we already prearranged for some provisions to be at the villa on our arrival). We then made one little pit stop at a local pub on the way to La Batterie.
Upon arriving at La Batterie our initial reaction was WOW! The place was beautiful! Views were breathtaking! We were introduced to Stephanie ( who had just finished making us a delicious welcome meal) and met Terry who was down in the garden roasting fresh coffee beans. We were in paradise!
The week just flew by with all the fun things we did! Lounging by the pool, zip lining, hanging out at the beach, snorkeling, 2 days sailing! The food on the island was so good as well. We chose to have Stephanie cook for us 3 nights and then went out to dinner the rest of the time. I think it was a perfect balance. The beach by the villa is very beautiful and one of the best on the island.
I would highly recommend La Batterie! Michael is a great communicator and went above and beyond to make sure we had an incredible trip.
We can't wait to return!"

Wonderful view. Unique setting high on the hills with view of the Pitons
"As advertised, the view of the Pitons and the ocean are wonderful. Sit and watch hummingbirds, grey tremblers, etc work the trees and flowers. At night, watch the sun set and the "glowing" click beetles come out. For first time visitors to St. Lucia, note that all walking involves some very steep roads/paths. Anse Chastanet is close by, but it is a hard walk; rent a car to get around and make trips to the waterfalls, town and other nearby attractions. Do not be put off by needing to use a vehicle; Anse Chastenet and Sugar Beach resorts provide on-site shuttles for their guests due to the steepness of the roads/paths.
La Bagatelle is a well-maintained villa. Kitchen is dated, but everything works. Beds are very comfortable. Pool is nice. Note: there is no air-conditioning. Not a problem for us, there are ceiling fans and trade winds. We are not accustomed to having a housekeeper on-site from 9 am till 3 pm. The housekeeper was not intrusive, but it made us feel awkward to be sitting around as someone did chores in the villa."

Excellent location, spacious accommodations and a personal concierge!
"My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. The villa is beautifully decorated and has everything a couple could need. Location is perfect too! A short walking distance from Rodney Bay with a few morning gems. The felly belly smoothie bar and both coffee shops are excellent. There are also a ton of restaurants and 3 grocery shops. Use trip advisor for restaurant selections. Stay in top 10. Spice of India was fantastic. Flavors in gros islet too! Beware: island time is a real thing. Average waiting time 30-45min for food. Sometimes 10-15 to get a drink. But just relax and enjoy the slow pace. As far as things to do, the bay gardens hotel has a shuttle which brings you to bay gardens resort. They have a beach, pool, bar, water sports, music and food options. Make sure to get towels at the hotel beforehand. They also have a concierge that can book day trips and tours. Book early. Reid, the owner was also GREAT. He arranged a private local chef to cook us a special 8 course dinner in the villa, a couples massage at a local spa, the local yoga center schedule and even a helicopter ride back to the airport. **If you can, arrange a helicopter ride to and from airport. Taxi ride is definitely scary and about 1.5-2 hours. I thought it would be nice to see the city and it was; however, there is one lane in and one out. The roads are excessivly curvy up and down the mountains and most everyone we spoke too had the same experience. Drivers are super friendly but the helicopter ride is 10 minutes and worth every penny!! $165per person US. Everyone speaks English and US currency is taken everywhere although it helps to convert to EC."
