Amazing! This unique house offers contemporary yet comfortable accommodation combined with friendly service which makes this a welcoming haven from every day life. This is the ideal place for an indulgent stay where you can choose to get away from it all relax in style or immerse yourself in all that nearby Soufriere has to offer. The house offers a swimming pool, cinema system and other every modern day gizmos you would expect. The bustling central square of Soufriere is 15 minutes walk away or 5 mins in a local taxi, a great place to buy fresh produce and experience a typical Caribbean town. A trip out for lunch to Marigot Bay on the water taxi is great way to see some of the coast line and all that lies beneath it! Great Snorkelling is also available just below the house via private steps to the waters edge. A trip to the waterfalls at Anse La Raye is well worth it, will take some finding off the end of a beaten track. We were cooked for many times by the staff, what a great way to experience local cuisine. After a long day, you can sit back with a Gin and Tonic and watch the sun go down in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The only criticism I have is, I had to go home!
Absolutely Extraordinary! We just spent a week at Le Gallerie with a family of six (kids from 15 to 8) and can’t say enough great things about it. For us, the words “relaxing” and “breathtaking” aren’t usually used to describe the same vacation so this was a very unique getaway. The ocean vistas, the Pitons, the flowers, the hummingbirds, rainbows, and sunsets all seem to be right out of central casting for tropical paradise….and that is without leaving the villa! The owners were very helpful and accommodating in answering our many (and often last minute) questions as well as offering up great recommendations for local drivers, fishing, etc. It is obvious that they are also very discerning in choosing and maintaining the wonderful and friendly people working at the property. Brian, the property manager, was there when we arrived to give us the overview and always available by phone to answer our questions. Sharmaine’s cooking was a treat and she was able to make absolutely fantastic meals that met our large breadth of palates, which is a challenge. Catherine and Tiki went about their activities with big smiles. Albert, the night watchman, was a great person, very friendly and more than willing to answer all of our kid’s questions (and there were many) about life on the island before helping us close up the house and heading out for his nightly duties. The pre-order groceries and dinner allowed us to get into vacation mode immediately upon arrival so we would highly recommend this. We did not rent a car but rather had a driver arranged for us by Brian who would either take us around and wait for us or come back and fetch us as necessary. Everything that was arranged for us was friendly, professional, and punctual. We did a half day fishing and snorkeling trip out of Souffriere and thought it was great. The walk down to the resort (Anse Chastenet) from the villa is about 5-10 minutes but seems a lot longer coming back up. It is probably worth a few bucks to have a taxi bring you back up the hill but we were too proud. We snorkeled at the resort (top notch) and had lunch which was good but the two lunches cost us half as much as our entire food bill at the house for the week. Our favorite thing to do was simply to head down to the private rock beach below the property for world class snorkeling and then come back up and hang out by the pool. As earlier posters mentioned…it is hard to come back to the real world after staying at this fabulous property!
Amazing Holiday. We have just returned from St Lucia and stayed in this property. It is the most amazing place that we have ever stayed in, and we are definitely looking to make a return trip!!! YOU MUST STAY HERE!!! The photos definitely do the property justice and more! We are still talking about how amazing the views of the Pitons actually are, and we never got used to the breathtaking views. The staff were amazing, friendly, efficient, and nothing was too much trouble. One evening one of the ladies even babysat for us, allowing us to go out for a super meal at the nearby “Mango Tree”. To sum the whole experience up, it was like staying in our own private hotel, with fabulous staff, a beautiful house and the best views on St Lucia. Heaven!!
