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.

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!

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!”

Best Family Vacation We Ever Had!!!

  • 5 of 5

“We are so grateful for our amazing stay at La Batterie! It was the best vacation our family has ever had. Mike (the host) always provided prompt and detailed responses to all my questions before we arrived. He and his wonderful staff made us feel so special and welcome! We loved Stephanie's food, so there was no need to go to any restaurants. Marilyn kept the house super clean. Clavie was always on time and happy to assist with any special requests. He helped arrange an emergency hair appointment for me. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous! We loved having our meals on the deck and enjoying the million dollar views of the pitons! I can't wait to tell our family and friends about La Batterie as I am sure they will want to stay at your lovely home as well. Because of this stellar experience, St. Lucia is my new favorite country! From the bottom of my heart, I am so thankful to you for making this dream trip a reality! I do hope to return!!! All the best to you and your wonderful staff! ” We look forward to returning to La Batterie!!”

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

“This is the best place to stay on the entire island of St. Lucia. You should book it now and stay as long as possible. You will not want to leave! It is bigger and prettier than the pictures. It is perfectly located. The staff is delightful. Notes: After Clavie picks you up at the airport he'll take you to a good grocery store. Stock up. The store is Soufriere is much smaller. Have Stephanie make dinner every night. It's delicious and if you happen to go out to eat you have lunch for the next day premade! You can walk down to the beach at Ance Chastenet to see the sunset or hang out at the beach. The folks at the gate will let you in when you tell them where you are staying. The walk is easier down than up but doable. Ask Terry for fruit from the garden. Mango, coconut and limes are all right there! He also took us for a jungle walk to try to see parrots. It was delightful! We saw zero mosquitos. The house is totally open air and lizards, birds, tiny frogs, etc did pass through. Loved them! There is a birdbath on the porch that I could have watched all day! The Grackles are my favorite. Three couples could easily stay here and not feel crowded. Each bedroom has a private porch area. This would be a great place for kids. The pool is beautiful and relaxing. Very deep! The gardens surrounding it are full rainforest and we discovered new things every day! Terry has been working there for 35 years and planted a lot of it himself! The hosts were super easy to communicate with and were able to arrange some things ahead of time that worked out really well. Stephanie knew our food preferences, Clavie helped us rent a car. Overall, this place is paradise. I am already thinking about going back! ”

Absolutely amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we started planning this trip to the very end of the trip it was spectacular and exceeded all of our expectations!

We had never been to St Lucia so we had lots of questions before we booked La Batterie. All of our questions were answered promptly with great enthusiasm!

We were greeted by Clavie, the driver when we landed and he was so knowledgeable about the island and so friendly. He drove us on all of our adventures and was amazing and very punctual. The views driving to the property were breathtaking!

Once we arrived at La Batterie we were greeted by Stephanie and her team and they were so friendly and made us wonderful meals for the week. The views from the balcony are unbelievable. It is picture perfect and we have been asked by friends if the pictures we posted are " real"- the views are that magnificent!

The grounds are beautiful on the property and the pool provided many hours of entertainment for our kids after we got home from the beach. The snorkeling is the best we have ever experienced and even saw a sea turtle!

BK was the night guard of the property and such a nice guy and always checked in on us. The entire staff was amazing.

La Batterie is a vacation our family will remember for years to come! It was outstanding!
