Villa Beach Cottages - Castries, St. Lucia
Located on the northwest coast of St. Lucia, 4 miles from Castries (capital of St. Lucia), Villa Beach Cottages stand among the lush tropical gardens, framed by coconut trees on Choc Bay, just a few yards from the edge of the Caribbean Sea. Small, unique, and picturesque, the 20 villa suites pay homage to St. Lucia's textured heritage, drawing on elements of the island's rich colonial architecture in the gingerbread gables and jalousie-framed windows.
Nature is brought inside through the use of all locally-made wooden furniture. Villa Beach Cottages also reflect the natural wonder of St. Lucian paradise in locally-commissioned art works. And to make each villa suite is special, architectural features of cathedral ceilings, intricate fretwork, wooden shutters, medallions and finials are all incorporated with great care. And along with the designs that are unique to St. Lucia, a feel of casual but luxurious island living is also offered by each suite.
