Villa Ivrea is located at the northern tip of Cap Estate and boasts spectacular views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Designed by the American architect Dan F. Sater II and built in 2009 by Wayne Brown D/B, it offers all the amenities required by discerning travelers, beginning with luxuriously appointed bedrooms and social areas, together with outdoor features like an infinity pool, panoramic verandas, pergola and terraced gardens. All four bedrooms in the Main House enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea or both. A large panoramic deck invites guests to enjoy the sun just outside their room, while an enchanting downstairs veranda provides the ideal setting for deep relaxation, outdoor dining or simply staying close to the pool and witnessing some truly unforgettable Caribbean sunsets.
Cottage: In addition to the Main House, Villa Ivrea offers a completely independent, one-bedroom Cottage that includes a full kitchen with nook, bathroom, living room, central air conditioning, laundry station and a veranda with a splash pool. It enjoys expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and it is surrounded by an English lawn and a citrus orchard. The Cottage is quoted when the traveling party is over 8 people ($125 per night mid and low season with rental of the villa, and $250 per night high season with rental of the villa).
Gardens: The terraced gardens host an eclectic mix of Mediterranean plants, including olive trees, lemon trees, figs, date palms, bay laurel, jasmine, oleander and cypresses, complemented by tropical and native varieties of bird of paradise, cannas, bougainvilleas, ginger lilies, sago palms, mango trees and more. Most of the water used for the irrigation of the gardens comes from rain-water harvesting.
Nearby Activities and Services: The renowned St. Lucia Golf & Country Club is just a 5-min drive away, while a 15-min drive will put you in the heart of Rodney Bay with all its different attractions, including excellent restaurants, a world-class marina, shopping malls, pharmacies, post office, banks, etc.
Some restaurants we recommend: Spinnakers (Sunset Bar and Food on the beach), Memories of Hong Kong (Best Chinese in the Windward Islands), Elena's (Pizza like you are in Italy), Razmataz (Indian) and Big Chef (Steaks and Wine).
But all this is just the beginning, as the rest of this beautiful island awaits being explored by those interested in snorkeling, hiking, bird watching, scuba diving, sightseeing, mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, sailing and more.
'Saluti' from Villa Ivrea, a taste of Italy, where the enchanting warm waters of the Caribbean Sea meet the crisp waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the dancing lights of Martinique greet you from the veranda.

About Villa Ivrea Owners
Olmedo and Lisa, from Houston, Texas
Villa Ivrea Owners purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Villa Ivrea Owners chose Mount Hardy
When our friend told us that she had chosen Saint Lucia as the ideal place to build her retirement home, after a nearly four-year search throughout the Caribbean, we had to come and see it for ourselves. From the very first moment we were captivated by the beauty, cleanliness and tranquility of the island, but what won our hearts were the people and their special attitude towards foreigners, unlike anything else we had seen during our multiple trips to other islands in the Caribbean. It was then that we decided to purchase a piece of land, build our dream home and make this emerald paradise a part of our lives. We believe Saint Lucia is gorgeous, but do not take our word for it: come and see for yourselves. You may not end up buying land and deciding to stay, but you will certainly get hooked on it forever.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Ivrea was built in 2009 and it is located at the northern tip of the exclusive Cap Estate subdivision. It offers breathtaking views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and it is just five minutes away from the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club and its fantastic 18-hole course, set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estate. The villa provides guests with luxuriously appointed bedrooms and social areas, in addition to outdoor features like infinity pool, panoramic verandas, pergola and terraced gardens. All this in a secure and exclusive environment that ensures privacy, tranquility and enjoyment. The elegant LeSport Spa & Beach Club is also close by and they are well known for their rejuvenating one-day spa treatments. Or guests may prefer to stay at the villa and have Maria, our professional masseuse, come by and treat you to a great massage under the Pergola, while listening to the ocean waves. Whether relaxing or exploring, Villa Ivrea is definitely the right place to call home while vacationing in Saint Lucia.

Beautiful location for a peaceful and relaxing vacation!
The Villa was beautiful and the views of the Caribbean Sea AMAZING! It was a perfect place to get away for some sunshine and warmth in the middle of the US winter. Bertha and Claudette were great. Bertha even cooked us a traditional meal of Green Bananas and Salt Fish for lunch one day ... which was delicious!! Junior was also a great resource to help get us to/from the Villa as we needed for dinners and day trips. His son Eversly also requested to ride along to pick us up on numerous occasions which we found very flattering! I would strongly recommend Junior for your taxi needs (758-484-9037). A day trip to the southern portion of the island with a stop at Plas Kassav (for cassava bread), scenic views of the Pitons, Diamond Botanical Gardens, and a mud bath at Sulphur Springs are also a recommendation. Sunset dinner at Spinnaker's in Rodney Bay too!
Our only negative was the beeping of the alarm system, which sounded nearly ever minute when it was not armed. It was a bit of annoyance but thankfully the peace of the location otherwise helped to distract us.
We will definitely consider returning to St. Lucia and Villa Ivrea!
So glad you had a great time at the villa. The island of St Lucia with the warm welcome received from the islanders is indeed special. They always strive to ensure tourists make wonderful memories. We will look forward to your return when you are looking to further explore the ecotourism, perhaps with a hike of the Gros Piton, visit to cocoa plantations, or zip-lining. We always enjoy seeing photos at Villa Ivrea on Facebook. As to the alarm, it has been addressed. Sorry for the inconvenience. The smart alarm has a silencer, which overrides any alert beep.
The most beautiful veiws I've ever seen in my life! And the house was so well kept! We had the time of our lives at Villa Ivrea! I will definitely return!
Fantastic place with unforgettable views
Our family enjoyed staying at Villa Ivrea very much. Bertha and Claudette were great, making sure we had everything we needed. The house has all upscale comforts and the views are simply outstanding (plus we had a full moon the last 2 days). It is located in a great neighborhood, close to all major attractions in the North. We highly recommend this villa to families!!
Amazing villa with Stunning Ocean Views
Our family just returned from our July 2017 vacation stay at this amazing villa. Upon arrival we were greeted by Claudette, with essential food items and rum punch already stocked in the fridge! Villa Ivrea (which truly is an estate) is located in exclusive Cap Estates on the north end of the island and literally sits on the mountain side with ocean views that can not be described or captured with a picture or words. The villa is beautifully appointed throughout, with all of the amenities, very spacious and comfortable. Not to mention the amazing infinity pool -- which we took full advantage in the afternoons. I also need to mention Bertha the friendly maid, whom provided cleaning service M-Sat. We have visited many islands in the Caribbean over the years, and by far this villa was the most luxurious and nicest of rental properties! The Rodney Bay area is within a 10 minute drive, and met all of our needs for restaurant choices, grocery stores, and novelty shops. We also found a picturesque beach & cove which turned out to be a great snorkel spot within a 10 minute drive (same beach as The Naked Fisherman restaurant). Thank you Lisa for sharing your beautiful villa and making our vacation to St Lucia such a pleasant and memorable one! With kindest regards,
The McManus family
Villa Ivrea 2017
The communication from Lisa, Claudette and Bertha were fantastic. This was our second visit and we will most definitely be back again next year! If you want any local recommendations please contact me and I will be happy to put you in touch with some very friendly locals who would be happy to help you in any way.
Wonderful & Beautiful!
Our family couldn't have enjoyed more our week in St. Lucia! The Villa Ivrea was extremely comfortable. The continual island breeze through the house was luscious. Bertha, the housekeeper, was a real help. We were connected with a driver Junior Auguste; he became a true friend and invaluable connection for our day excursions.
We fit in as much adventure as we could in 7 days - boating, snorkeling, mud baths, rain forest hikes, horseback riding, zip-lining, fishing, dining in, dining out.
Thank you for a very special week for the Spotts family!

In addition to the Main House, Villa Ivrea offers a fully independent, one-bedroom Cottage that includes a full kitchen, central air conditioning and a veranda with a splash pool. It enjoys expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and it is surrounded by an English lawn and a citrus orchard. This recently-built estate is only five minutes away from the St. Lucia Golf & Country Club and its fantastic 18-hole course, set within the scenic rolling hills of Cap Estate. Golf: The Saint Lucia Golf & Country Club (18 holes), located inside Cap Estate, is only 4 minutes away by car. Their rate for a round of golf (including the cart) is US$145 during High Season and players can tee off as early as 6h45. If you would like to know more about a preferred pricing agreement, please give us the exact dates you have in mind, as well as the number of people in your party. Unfortunately, the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course next to Villa Ivrea will not be finished before Fall 2018, but we are sure that once you see it you will want to come back as soon as they open. A great alternative is the La Toc golf course (9 holes), located 30 minutes south from Villa Ivrea --La Toc is the oldest golf course on the island. It is rather hilly, but the expansive views of the Castries Harbor and the Caribbean Sea make it really worth the trip. Their rate is US$60/round and they have no carts. Other Activities: About 45 minutes by car, going south towards Soufriere, you will find the Tet Paul Nature Trail, which is nestled on six acres of lush, verdant land in the farming community of Chateau Belair. The trail is located in the Piton Management Area, Saint Lucia’s World Heritage Site. Hiking the trail is like soaring heavenward on a beautiful, natural staircase. The hike is rated easy to moderate and is roughly 45 minutes long. The trail boasts some of the most spectacular views of the South of the island, the Jalousie Bay, Petit Piton and Gros Piton as well as Martinique and St. Vincent on clear days.
