La Fleur des Pitons – St Lucia Villas

La Fleur des Pitons is a spacious villa that was completed in 2007. This gorgeous property is designed in true plantation style, with sweeping verandas providing stunning views of land and sea. The property lies on a breathtaking position on the high ridge between the dramatic Pitons of St. Lucia. The lovely house not only has fabulous views of these twin mountains and the Caribbean, it enjoys refreshing trade-wind breezes throughout its open-plan living areas. On the west veranda is an amazing 40-by-12-foot infinity-edge swimming pool, which gives the illusion of spilling down the hillside.

Features and Amenities

On opposite ends of the pool deck are an alfresco dining area and a spacious sundeck, furnished with comfortable chaise lounges. A convenient bathroom with shower sits directly off the pool area. An adjacent cottage, called La Petite Fleur, features charming furnishings, modern amenities and a large studio room with a queen-size, four-poster bed (it can be rented with main villa or on its own). This St. Lucia vacation paradise also features an enormous great room, warm and tranquil, framed on three sides with beautiful louvered doors, each opening onto a spacious 10-foot covered veranda. Comfortable furnishings are found under high exposed-beam ceilings. The south veranda faces an amazing stone waterfall, adding to the ambiance of tranquility.

The Caribbean vacation villa has two spacious bedrooms with high-vaulted ceilings and private balconies. Each boasts a king-size, four-poster bed with wonderful linens, walk-in closet, en suite bathroom and a serene sitting area. Wonderful views of the Pitons can be enjoyed from the bedroom balconies. A gourmet, fully equipped kitchen, with a huge ceramic tile-laid bar and comfortable stools, is a great place for relaxed dining. A convenient computer and telephone access area is located off the bar.


St. Lucia is the sort of island that travelers to the Caribbean dream about–a small, lush tropical gem that is still relatively unknown. One of the Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, and north of Barbados. St. Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide, with a shape that is said to resemble either a mango or an avocado (depending on your taste). The Atlantic Ocean kisses its eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe their beauty to the calm Caribbean Sea.

In natural beauty, St. Lucia seems like an island plucked from the South Pacific and set down in the Caribbean. Its dramatic twin coastal peaks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, sheltering magnificent rain forests where wild orchids, giant ferns, and birds of paradise flourish. Brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound, including endangered species like the indigenous St. Lucia parrot. The rainforest is broken only by verdant fields and orchards of banana, coconut, mango, and papaya trees.

St. Lucia has been inhabited since long before colonial times, and its cultural treasures are a fascinating melange of its rich past and its many different traditions. The island’s people have earned a well-deserved reputation for their warmth and charm, and the island itself is dotted with aged fortresses, small villages, and open-air markets.

There is a broad array of exciting and exotic activities available on St. Lucia. The island’s steep coastlines and lovely reefs offer excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. The rainforest preserves of St. Lucia’s mountainous interior are one of the Caribbean’s finest locales for hiking and birdwatching. Of course, the island also possesses excellent facilities for golf, tennis, sailing, and a host of other leisure pursuits. Not to be missed is St. Lucia’s Soufriere volcano, the world’s only drive-in volcanic crater.
