This is a terrific family home or holiday rental villa, with everything that you dream of when you think 'Caribbean holiday'! Romance, seclusion, wide open blue skies, scenic views of St Lucia's iconic Piton mountains, the quaint rural countryside and the Caribbean Sea, a swimming pool for cooling off after long leisurely stretches of sunbathing, and a choice of outdoor patios for sundowners or al fresco dining when the moon comes out. And what better way to end a long day in the tropics than with a midnight soak in the outdoor jacuzzi?

This two-storey villa sits atop a ridge of beautiful countryside land midway between the towns of Choiseul and Soufriere, in the rural south-western countryside of St Lucia. One of just a handful of high-end homes in this part of the island, the original owners' mixture of French and St Lucian heritage shines through in many of the details.

Built of concrete (ground floor) and wood for the upper floor, this home makes the most of the prevailing breezes that caress the surrounding hills and river valleys. Natural air-conditioning keeps this home cool and fresh while the interior lay-out ensures that it feels cosy and protected. The home can be configured as one unit, or subdivided into two sections, with separate entrances - making it particularly suitable for owner-occupied holiday rentals as well.

A living room, dining room and den downstairs all surround the central kitchen area, which in turn leads out onto the patios and towards the swimming pool. A lovely view between mature fruit trees and out to Gros Piton in the distance, and the Caribbean Sea to the south and west, provides a very scenic backdrop to the patio and pool areas. There is a full guest bathroom downstairs with toilet, vanity and shower. A staircase leads from the den to the upper floor, which is a spacious area built of wood and featuring exposed rafters. An ingeniously designed moving louvered wall made of locally cut and sawn planks gives this area optimal flexibility: making it possible to create two private bedrooms each with ensuite private bathrooms or, alternatively, create a large space where energy flows unhindered while still providing nooks of privacy. Wooden louvres on the windows filter the light and keep the area cool, while glass panes beyond the louvres protect the interior from the elements and insects. Glass sliding doors lead from the upstairs sitting area into a light and cozy office space which doubles as a gym. This, in turn, opens out through tinted glass sliding doors to the upstairs balcony with its very privately set open-air jacuzzi.

The house sits on large lot of land (7 acres) but will be sold with approximately 25,000 square feet of easy-to-maintain, landscaped gardens which will be dismembered from the whole. A simple structure of metal poles and tropical tarpaulin creates a car port that can easily accommodate four vehicles. The property is fully serviced with mains water, electricity and telecoms, and has excellent road access. It is within half an hour's drive of the international airport, and just 15 minutes from Soufriere.
