About the area

St Lucia is special, even for the Caribbean. Unlike a lot of the islands in the Caribbean which are just big sandbars in the ocean, the island is gorgeous - lush tropical rainforests, mountains, waterfalls, secluded beaches and clear waters. And the people are genuinely friendly and warm - not just polite like some other places. Give a St Lucian a big smile and a warm hello, and you'll have a new friend! Life in St Lucia is a little slower - everyone takes time to appreciate the beautiful weather and the stunning views. And the Soufriere area is the area most blessed of all with natural beauty - the Pitons are awe-inspiring, the reefs are abundant, the drive-in volcano is unique, and there are waterfalls and gardens all around. Our "little piece of Paradise" sits high on a hill overlooking the Pitons and the Caribbean, so every day spent in Villa Grand Piton is a chance to wake up and enjoy the sunrise while listening to the birds and watching the sailboats on the water, and every evening is a time to enjoy the sun set over the Caribbean, then count the bright stars in the sky. (There's very little light pollution here - you will be amazed at the brilliance of the stars when they don't compete with artificial lights.) At night, it is incredibly serene, with just the "night music" of Mother Nature to lull you to sleep.

Getting around

The driving is on the left in St Lucia, and the roads are narrow and twist and turn, as St Lucia is mountainous. These factors make driving a bit of an adventure for many people. The two best ways to get around are to rent a vehicle (high ground clearance is strongly suggested) or to use a taxi/driver service. We have a document that was designed to help you make the decision on renting a vehicle or using a taxi/driver service.

Getting here

Most of our guests fly into the international airport in Vieux Fort (code UVF) at the southern tip of the island. From there, it is about a one-hour drive to the villa. If you stay for six nights or more, we offer complimentary taxi service from the airport to the villa upon your arrival. If your stay is shorter than six nights, we are happy to arrange for a driver to get you at the airport and drive you to the villa. You may pay them directly (we'll tell you the price prior to your arrival), or you may prepay us via a PayPal invoice, and we'll pay the driver for you. If you rent a car and pick it up at the airport, we provide detailed driving instructions for you and send those in a pdf file to you prior to your arrival.

Interaction with guest

Although the owners cannot meet you when you arrive, or be available in person during your stay, or staff is there around-the-clock - just like a hotel - in case you need something and to keep the place clean and well-maintained. The owners are available via email, text, or WhatsApp during your stay in case the staff is not handling something to your satisfaction, or you just have a question you'd prefer to ask us.

We are seasoned travelers that work hard and seek only the finest for our getaways. We splurge for memories. First time to St. Lucia and Villa Grand Piton WILL NOT DISAPPOINT. First, everywhere on St. Lucia requires a walk to the beach--why not first enjoy a private pool with THE MOST AMAZING view of the pitons AND cocktails and snacks from your well appointed kitchen, gaze for a bit out at the ships criss-crossing the sea before strolling down the hill to the THE BEST SNORKELING BEACH (anse chastenet) on the island. Sure, we could have booked a Jade room with a splash pool, BUT why not get a villa for less than half the price in the same location? This is a no-brainer. But--if I say more it will seem like I'm writing a paid advertisement--so let me suggest this--look at the all the photos, compare photos from the other villas, compare size, staff and amenities from Ladera, Jade and Sugar Beach,.... then decide. Bravo Loretta--well done! Thanks for helping to make this trip one for the memory books!

Fantastic villa, Spectacular View!

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa Grand Piton! It exceeded all expectations. The villa is situated at one of the highest points on the island and has the absolute picture-perfect Piton view. There is plenty of outdoor seating in both sun and shade to capitalize on the spectacular setting. The villa itself is large, beautifully maintained and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The staff (Doxie, John and Paul) was extremely accommodating and kept everything running smoothly. There was a generosity of spirit that extended thought the villa and in every interaction. Dealing with Loretta was a cinch, the welcome basket was incredibly bountiful and provided everything we needed for the first day or two. Taking advantage of the free taxi from the airport is highly recommended. We then had a car delivered to the house the next day by Drive -a -Matic. We did not find driving on the island to be too challenging except for the stretch of road right up to the villa. Going slowly and having a 4 WD made it very manageable. Given the spectacular setting , we did spend much of our time just relaxing at the villa. We bought fresh fish in town from a local fisherman, stocked up on fresh produce from some street vendors and ate wonderful meals in the gazebo watching the sun set and stars emerge. We are very frequent villa-renters and have travelled extensively. This villa stands out for its great setting, high standard and ease of rental. We have already recommended it to friends.

A little slice of HEAVEN here!

We absolutely LOVED Villa Grand Piton - although the hiking, restaurants, snorkeling and zip lines all sounded fun - we've done it all before ... and in the end, we chose not to tear ourselves away from the perfect villa, the perfect pool and the most heavenly view ever! THE most relaxing vacation my husband and I have ever taken. It was beautiful every day despite saying it might rain. And everything was top notch - Doxie, John and Paul were all so helpful. We did go down to Anse Chastenet to go snorkeling one day and it was lovely (gear is all there at the villa, along with suntan lotion and literally everything else you'd ever need!) - but after a few hours, we decided it was a lot nicer up at the villa, so back we went and never left again except to pick up food or drinks! Fabulous place and though I know there's lots to do all over St. Lucia - this place is the perfect place to completely relax and do nothing too. Can't wait to go back!

We could not have chosen a more magical island, setting or villa! We fell in love with it all, and your beautiful villa was such a spectacular place for us to stay. We simply couldn't believe how beautiful it all was, and those views, I don't honestly think you could find anything more beautiful, and ever changing. We were mesmerised by everything from the fisherman first thing, cloud formation over the Pitons, boats, Frigate birds to the sunset and evening sky beyond.....The villa is situated in an amazing location, not only for its views, but its proximity to all the resorts and restaurants, it's incredible how many different places there are nearby. We did manage to try most of them! Honestly what a holiday, what a place! You are so lucky!!! It is quite simply paradise! We already want to come back, well to be honest we never wanted to leave....! We even grew to love the crazy road! If you are going to get views like that, you need to climb a few hills don't you?!!! We hired a sailing boat for the afternoon, it was really special, saw literally hundreds of dolphins and snorkelled at Anse Cochon....what a way to spend an afternoon.....but the most incredible of all was to see your beautiful villa from the water. We knew the villa was high up, but it was only at sea that you get a full perspective of how high up it really is. Until that day we had no idea there were several villas beneath, or that the villas we thought were down by the sea level, were also so high up! Finally we understood why you get those panoramic 180 degree views! Villa Grand Piton soars in amongst the top of the hill, creating that spectacular view of ocean, sky and those glorious Pitons! It is worth every second of the drive to get to that setting! It also explained to us why it is so serenely peaceful at the villa, being the second to last villa on the road, no one ever goes past! One of our favourite times was sat late, just before bed listening to all those beautiful sounds....totally tranquility, and those amazing tiny little tree frogs...how does something so small, make such a beautiful sound? Your staff also deserve a huge mention, they are just lovely. Warm, friendly helpful, discreet and reassuring, you are so lucky to have them all and they were all so special in their own ways and it was such a luxury to have clean bedding and towels every 3 days! We wouldn't change a thing, it was magic! paradise found!! Thank you for everything!
