  • Can't decide who would like it here

    "From other reviews it looks like others have had better experiences, so read those too! The view is great, despite being cut up by wires, and the property is lush and well maintained. The plunge pool is also well maintained and a fantastic addition being that the walk back from the beach is really more of a hike as it's about 20-30 minutes and steep uphill...we're 30 years old and in shape and it was tough after a day in the sun. The house itself is a great idea in general but the fact is, that after dark, the only place to hang out without being completely exposed to the outside world is the bedroom that has zero entertainment inside it. So you end up eating dinner and watching tv or playing games basically outside where everyone who drives by can look at you. Zero privacy. This didn't sit well with me...the house is up off the ground about 6+ feet but could easily be accessed by someone so I basically felt scared for 5 days straight that we would be robbed (especially after reading too many bad stories of crime in St.Lucia). The house was well stocked, kitchen was tiny but functional, and Charmaine the house keeper was friendly and available as well as the rest of the staff. I do wish they all didn't come before 10-11am...it was weird waking up to hearing them around our house and she knocks on the door as soon as she hears you're awake so you literally get no privacy here. I'm just not sure who this property is for...honeymooners would have no privacy, older folks would hate the walk to the beach and the noise, and families would have no space or security. It's also far from anything so cab rides cost at minimum $30US. I feel bad giving this review as Sam the owner is really friendly and great but I really didn't enjoy the stay...but maybe that's just because I'm a wuss and prefer to be around more people/entertainment? This house is on a corner so there is a road behind and in front of it...lots of road noise as one goes to the Jade Mountain resort and Anse Chastanet beach not to mention the construction noise behind the house. The guy working there did offer not to do "heavy" work until 10am and to not work at all one day of our trip but it ended up they were using loud saws and hammering around 8am everyday so really...there was no reprieve. There are 3 cats who live there, 2 of which are super friendly, the other is just shy. There are also cute frogs on the wall map at night which was neat. Plenty of old movies to watch and the water was warm."

  • Superlative View of the Caribbean and Pitons

    "First visit to St. Lucia and La Bagatelle filled the bill! Situated about 450 feet above the water and with an unsurpassed view of the Pitons, the house is accurately depicted here and is an upside down house with open air living area above and bedrooms below. Spent many hours watching the rainbows, passing cruise ships, fishermen, yachts and hummingbirds feeding on bouganvilli a. Less than a mile to Anse Chastanet where one can swim, sunbathe, dine, dive, and snorkel. Suggest renting a car at the airport, ours was from Cool Breeze. Much to explore on St. Lucia; we especially enjoyed Diamond Falls with its botanical gardens. Staff very nice and owner who lives nearby checked with us to ensure no concerns. House beautifully furnished with original local furniture and paintings. Lovely pool with plenty of places where one could read or doze. Almost no bugs at this time. Generally quiet."

  • Once In a Lifetime Experience

    "La Batterie Villa exceeded my expectations. It is hard to put my experience in words but if I had to chose one it would be - paradise. I was welcomed by Clavie at the airport. He is beyond friendly and takes care of you 100%. He drove me from the airport to the villa. I was then introduced to Marilyn, Stephanie and Terry. I went on a tour around the villa and was surprised with an amazing dinner - compliments of the owners. I had pumpkin soup with local vegetables and a fresh salad - could not have been better. I sat down for a second and looked out at the breathtaking view of the Carribean sea and the Pitons. This view has to be the best on the island. I can not stress this enough. Every day I would wake up - still in awe of this view. La Batterie is a treasure and enraptures all that is beautiful in this breathtaking country. Subsequent wonderful attributes of this villa include the salt water pool/lounge area and the surrounding lush gardens. The bougainvillea flowers were my favorite - they produce coral and fuscia flowers. There are also several other exotic flowers including helconia. The gardens are a joy and if you appreciate nature you will love La Batterie. In regards to the pool - WOW! First of all, the salt water is unique and does not damage the skin like chlorine. The color of the pool is also beautiful. It is blue and catches the sun in all of the right ways. I spent a lot of the duration of my trip reading poolside with a nice refreshing glass of local grapefruit juice. Lastly, each bedroom in this villa holds a certain charm. I stayed in the piton suite and let me tell you - the view was out of this world. I would open my doors each morning greeted by the beauty of this island. Did I mention there are fresh flowers placed throughout the house upon arrival? It is hard to put my feelings/thoughts in words but I truly enjoyed my time at La Batterie. Saint Lucia is a one-of-a-kind island and staying at La Batterie made it unforgettable. I can only hope I will be fortunate enough to stay at this villa once again."

  • A Real Gem

    "Amazing dramatic views, lush beautiful gardens, comfortable bed and hot shower, delicious home cooked local cuisine by Magdalene, total privacy, delightful daytime entertainment by all varieties of birds and nighttime star gazing with background music provided by frogs. This is a nature lover's paradise. The owner, Henrietta, was easy to talk to and very accommodating. We found this to be an excellent location to explore the entire country, but were especially enamored with the nearby town of Soufriere. Absolutely loved the property and St. Lucia!"
