Description of the Soufriere vacation cottage rental
La Bou is a private retreat consisting of two separate cottages set on 0.85 acres of gently sloping land. The main cottage is a uniquely designed and constructed building. The second building is affectionately known as "The Birdhouse" because it strongly resembles a typical European style birdhouse. The third building houses the large BBQ area, the custom-built rock fire place and a large dining room table. It also has at least two hammocks.

The creator who envisioned and lovingly built this unique retreat with his own two hands, is a well-known Swiss artist who still resides next door. There, he is creating a new master piece in a completely different style.

This previously very private property has now been made available to be enjoyed by the general public. It is now being offered as a short-term rental with on-site management. (provided by the new owners who live just one mile down the same road) All linens are provided. Laundry service is available.

Escape to what has been named the most magical destination on the planet, but most people call La Bou Country Cottage, a place where your mind, body, and soul will relax and become one with nature.

This is also a perfect place to hold Yoga Retreats with small groups. It can be set up to host 6 guests and one instructor.

Area Information
La Bou is located in a largely agricultural area in a large valley in the mountains rising high over Soufriere, a quaint sleep fishing village. The hills behind Soufriere are filled with what the local people call their "Gardens". These gardens are large tracks of land that are being cultivated by individuals who grow food for their own family on the land that they acquired from the Crown many decades ago. Every family has their special plot. Most gardens are approximately an acre in size. The local men work their little gardens daily and harvest the fruit when ripe. Favorite crops in the area are pineapples, oranges, grapefruit, cacao, bananas, sugar apples, sour sops, etc.

Some farmers also keeps a few goats or pigs on their land. These will later be sold as meat or traded with the villagers of Soufriere who in turn supply the fish to the farmers.

The soil is very rich and can support a wide variety of crops. The abundant rain fall does the rest.

The area is also home to some well-known hot springs, namely the Soufriere Sulphur Springs that are located just next door from La Bou Cottage.
There, you can enjoy a healthy hot water dip anytime, day or night.

La Bou does not have TV, Internet, Computers or any of these modern day gadgets. If you must check on the stocks or FB, you can do so one mile away at CarRods Bar where they combine great food and drinks with great Wifi.
